Winter time has started at Walt Disney World (even if temperatures don’t reflect this) and we couldn’t be more excited. Here are the top reasons we are SUPER excited about winter 2020 at Walt Disney World.
One of the best parts about winter in Walt Disney World is the decorations. All of the parks and resorts will be decorated for the holiday season and it is truly one of the most magical and beautiful times of the year to visit. From the amazing Christmas trees to the small details, everything is decorated to bring holiday cheer to guests.
Along with the holiday decorations come the holiday treats. The winter season in Walt Disney World sees the arrival of new and amazing themed treats. Each park has specific treats themed to winter and that help make one feel nice and cozy. Try the hot chocolate in Hollywood Studios or the Let It Snow Taco – Sugar cookie in Magic Kingdom. Both are just two of many great winters treats available.
3. Characters in Winter Clothes
We are used to seeing Mickey and Minnie in their traditional outfits, but during the winter season in Disney you can see them in their festive winter gear. Princesses also can be seen in their winter clothes such as Belle in her velvet red dress. This is so much fun to see as it is something different and unique that only winter time brings.

4. Cooler Temperatures
Another reason we get excited about visiting Walt Disney World in the winter is because of the weather. During this time of year, temperatures start to cool off allowing us to bundle in a sweatshirt, hats and gloves and enjoy the days without heat and humidity that typically comes with a Disney vacation.
5. Darker Earlier
This might not be one that you think about; however, we enjoy that the parks get darker earlier. With the holiday lights and projections, it is great to see the park transition to the evening and we like that we don’t have to stay up way late to do so. The parks at night are a special experience and we are so glad the winter brings it to us earlier.
6. More Food Options
As winter 2020 is upon us, so are new dining options at the parks and resorts throughout the Walt Disney World property. We are excited to be able to try some options such as Chef Mickeys with a new character experience starting mid-December as well as our old favorites such as Woody’ Lunch Box opening back up. Having these dining options open back up makes us super excited to head to Disney this winter.
7. Limited Capacity
Winter months at Walt Disney World can bring with it a huge crowd, but not winter 2020. This year Disney continues to limit capacity to help guests and cast members remain safe and socially distanced while enjoying their vacation. With a lower capacity in place, this year will probably (let’s hope) see the lowest crowds ever during winter months. This makes it a great and exciting time to visit. You can enjoy all the perks of the winter without the crowds.
8. Festival of the Holidays
One of the best winter events happens in Epcot and is focused around the Festival of the Holidays. This festival starts at the end of November and runs through December. With it comes amazing food and drink options throughout the World Showcase. We are always excited to try out these outstanding dishes and can’t wait to do so again this year.
Every time of year is a great time to visit Walt Disney World; however, winter 2020 has us super excited to head down and experience the magic. From delicious foods to beautiful decorations, there is so much to look forward to this winter and we can’t wait to go.
