Just 10 days after Halloween ends, the holiday season begins at Walt Disney World Resort with events kicking off at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
The holiday season, complete with red, green and white decorations, returns with Disney's newest holiday nighttime experience, Sunset Seasons Greetings.
Disney favorites Mickey, Minnie and their friends share their favorite Christmas stories in this new holiday experience in a very decked out Sunset Boulevard.
The overlay means "billboards will come to life and the famous Hollywood Tower Hotel will transform into a pile of Christmas gifts, a gingerbread house and a frozen winter wonderland throughout the night," according to the Disney Parks Blog.
Hollywood Studios will also be even more decorated this year with more décor around Echo Lake and Dinosaur getting a dino-Santa hat, according to Disney.
Holiday show "Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!" (a projection show at the center of the park) also comes back this year. Santa Claus returns to the Once Upon a Time shop on November 9 through December 24 and Santa Goofy makes an appearance Dec. 25 – 31.
Over at Epcot, the holiday season returns Nov. 19 as the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays starts. The event, previously called Holidays Around the World, ends Dec. 30.
In addition to the return of the Candlelight Processional, Disney leaders are offering up new Holiday Kitchens that will feature new eats and sweets to try. The 15 locations offer a variety of classic holiday foods including snowflake sugar cookies and warm apple fritters with cinnamon ice cream at the Odyssey or Maple Buche de Noel in the Canada pavilion.
New entertainment this year includes a group called "Mostly Kosher," which will perform holiday classics celebrating Hanukkah in the American Pavilion, said Disney.
