Now I know it’s REALLY the holiday season: Holidays Around the World has returned to Epcot.
Beautifully-costumed storytellers who share the traditions and cultures from their countries and entertainment themed to the holidays add to the sparkle of the gorgeous decor around the theme park.
Hear from Helga, Father Christmas, Santa and Mrs. Claus, as well as performances from the Chinese Lion and the mariachi band and dancers in Mexico – these are just some of the special experiences available for the season.
How will you spend your holiday visit at Epcot?

In Hawai‘i, the traditional celebration of the harvest — or Makahiki — takes place in the fall. At Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, our resort’s casual, family-friendly restaurant is appropriately named after the season’s festival, Makahiki: The Bounty of the Islands.
As we pointed out in the “Unforgettable Details” post a few months back, the story of Makahiki season comes to life inside the restaurant through not only delectable cuisine, but also local artwork. Murals by artists Solomon Enos and Al Lagunero celebrate the spirit of the festival, while depicting Hawaiian feasting and gaming.
To continue the celebration of this season in a fun and festive way, the resort is featuring a new Disney character show called “Menehune Mischief at the Makahiki.” Available on select days, guests are invited to join Aunty, Donald Duck, Stitch and Chip & Dale as they tell the story of the Menehune — the magical “little people” of Hawai‘i!
Happy Thanksgiving from Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa!

It is a favorite Thanksgiving Day tradition of mine to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Here we take a look at the Mickey Mouse balloon that paraded its way down the streets of New York City in the early 1970’s. I hope this photo brings many happy memories of your Thanksgiving traditions.
With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, Disney Cruise Line crew members volunteered at local food pantries to help with Thanksgiving preparations in communities near our Florida homeports in Port Canaveral and Miami, and in Galveston, Texas.
