Disney Special Events


You have found the Disney Special Events page. No matter what time of year it is, there is always something special going on at the Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.

While some of these special events require separate tickets, some are included in your park admission. The special "parties" held at the Magic Kingdom throughout the year do require special tickets. The Magic Kingdom also closes earlier than usual on party days.

Some of these events are especially fun if you are traveling with a large group - perhaps a family reunion? The Wishes Dessert party comes to mind for a fun group event.

If you are lucky enough to have someone with you who can watch your kids for a couple of hours, the Food and Wine Festival is a great opportunity to stroll around the World Showcase in Epcot, sampling morsels and libations from countries all around the world.

And don't forget the Holidays at Disney! Halloween and Christmas are really special times at Disney World. The decorations are fabulous and the holiday spirit is contagious. Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party are wonderful events. And everyone should see the Osbourne Lights (no additional admission charge!)

Be sure to check all the Park Hours for your vacation time, and plan accordingly.
