WDW Holiday Entertainment for December

Here is some of what is happening around Disney World for December.


Each resort has a Recreation Calendar that is a glossy two-sided sheet of paper. Anyone may pick one up at the resort’s front desk. These calendars list Holiday events in that resort or in a group of resorts such as the Swan and Dolphin. There are carolers or other holiday singers every other day in the evening, two or three days of character greeting around 5 – 9 pm, and various crafts, games, and movies on Christmas day and sometimes Christmas Eve. The pool activities are for guests only but the entertainment, Santa, characters, and activities are for anyone so no dragging kids from Santa.

Here is the Contemporary resort events:

December 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 27, 28 are carolers at 6 and 7 pm.
December 24 and 25 has marshmallow roasting, a dance party, crafts and a movie. Note that outdoor activities are moved indoors if the wind, rain or cold air are too much for guests and Cast Members.

Santa is on the 4th floor from 5 – 9 pm on the 24th.

Gingerbread display is open 10 – 10 daily but you can stop by anytime to take pictures.
