It may only be July, but there’s magic happening right now inside Holiday Services at Walt Disney World Resort as we gear up for Christmas at Disney Parks. We know that many of you are beginning your holiday vacation planning right now – and you won’t believe the lengths Disney goes through to make sure every moment of your holiday experience is magical, whether you’re visiting our parks, Disney Springs, Disney Cruise Line or a Disney Vacation Club property.

In this episode, Jenn Fickley-Baker takes you behind the scenes at Holiday Services, showing us what the team does and how they do it. You will even get a first-look at some of the newest décor coming to Walt Disney World Resort this holiday season!

Next, Erin Glover takes you to Disneyland Resort where she’s talking with guests celebrating the Diamond Celebration. We’ll hear them share their lasting memories from 60 years of Disney Magic. Then, you’ll hear from Celebrity Chef Rick Bayless, the creator of one of Disney Springs’ newest restaurants, Frontera Cocina.

Enjoy the show!


  • I would love to walk through that warehouse! That would be an amazing Christmas gift! 🙂

  • Does anyone know of any Christmas events that Disney will do this year besides the Christmas Party? We loved the light display and were hoping that there would be something to kind of take its place.

  • I read that the Osborne festival of lights was being discontinued to do the 2 new lands that are being built at Disney studios. I am also very disappointed as we loved the festival of lights!

  • more behind the scenes please, love seeing how the magic happens

  • I’ve yet to hear/see an official explanation from Disney regarding no longer having the Osmond Family Christmas Lights at Hollywood Studios. We absolutely loved them and can’t believe Disney is doing away with this unique display. Even if the contract expired, etc., Disney could simply have found another sponsor (or paid for them itself – we all know money is not an issue at WDW). Please provide an update regarding possibly bringing the lights back, replacement plan, etc. Thanks in advance!

  • Awesome keep the Christmas coming

  • Enough of Christmas in July already
