To kick things off, I’ve highlighted why Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect destination for any holiday, be it Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, July 4, or simply springtime. Click on my video about some of the top things to do at Walt Disney World Resort throughout the seasons.

In springtime, Epcot is in full bloom from March through May during the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. Visitors can watch gardening demos, eat fresh seasonal foods, dance at daily concerts, and view thousands of flowers and more than 100 topiaries.

Walt Disney World Resort is famous for its fireworks shows, and on July 4 the resort will light up with a special display titled, “Celebrate America – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky.” For more patriotic fun, get a history lesson at the American Adventure at Epcot and see all of the U.S. presidents at the Hall of Presidents inside Magic Kingdom Park.

Every Halloween, Magic Kingdom Park gets a full makeover with scarecrows and pumpkins during September and October. Dress-up, trick-or-treat, and watch a special parade and fireworks show during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

Viewfinder Tip: Expedia offers a bunch of great tools and resources for planning your trip to Walt Disney World, including these.

You don’t have to miss out on a classic turkey dinner if you’re celebrating Thanksgiving during a Walt Disney World vacation. Restaurants throughout the park serve full turkey dinners. Also, no matter what time of the year it is, turkey legs always can be found at food carts.

Finally, Christmas at Walt Disney World is one of the most magical times of the year, as all of the parks get decked out with holiday spirit. Visitors can meet Santa and watch Queen Elsa transform Cinderella Castle into a nightly ice show inside Magic Kingdom Park. Shop for unique gifts and learn about holiday traditions from around the globe at Epcot, too.
