October is winding down and now its time to look ahead to November at Walt Disney World. Though you might feel like it is a little early to celebrate Christmas, typically these events (which all run into December) are less crowded in November, making this month the perfect time to visit the resort and get your holiday spirit going a little early.
1. A Frozen Holiday Wish debuts at Magic Kingdom
Right on the heels of the very last Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party (taking place this Friday, October 31st), Disney’s Magic Kingdom gets right back in the holiday spirit on November 5th with the debut of A Frozen Holiday Wish, the brand new castle lighting show that will take place at 6:15 nightly (and replaces Cinderella’s Christmas Wish.) This show is not a part of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party, and is included with park admission.
2. The Jingle Cruise sets sail
A returning attraction for 2014 that is also included with admission is the Jingle Cruise overlay of the Jungle Cruise attraction. This Christmas-themed overlay features Christmas-themed jokes and some additional holiday décor around the Jungle Cruise’s original route. Though Disney has not officially announced dates for this year’s inaugural Jingle Cruise, this festive overlay made its debut last year during the second week of November at Walt Disney World, and it’s likely that this year’s iteration will see its inaugural cast off around the same time.
3. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party kicks off
If you want to check out even more Christmas cheer at the Magic Kingdom this November, seperately ticketed event Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party kicks off on November 7th. If you’ve never been, this holiday event features special Christmas-themed entertainment including an exclusive parade, Christmas-themed fireworks, several special character meet and greets and complimentary hot cocoa and cookies. New for 2014 is the addition of Frozen characters Elsa, Anna and Olaf to the christmas parade.
