Disney Disneyland Happy Holidays Walt Disney World

It’s Never Too Early to Make Holiday Plans Even for Disney Vacation Club Members

Getting a jump start on the New Year’s 25th anniversary of “A Goofy Movie,” this year’s Disney Vacation Club Holiday Dinner at Walt Disney World Resort – just one of the events serving up Membership Magic this holiday season – will star Goofy. Taking place in the Fantasia Ballroom at Disney’s Contemporary Resort on Dec. 24 from 3-5 p.m., the dinner will pair holiday dishes with holiday carols and invite Members to pose for photos (ideally in their goofiest holiday sweaters). Click here for more details, including pricing.

Speaking of getting a jump start on the New Year, an “Aladdin”-themed Disney Vacation Club New Year’s Eve Eve Dessert Party on Dec. 30 will begin to wrap 2019 from 10 p.m.-midnight in the Fantasia Lobby and Porte Cohere at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Members will enjoy light bites and sweet treats, play carnival games, meet Disney characters and enjoy a unique perspective on the Magic Kingdom fireworks. Find more details here, including pricing. 

While planning your holiday celebrations at Walt Disney World Resort, remember that Disney Vacation Club Members save on tickets for select nights of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Oh, and to keep our “early start” theme going here, remember that Disney Vacation Club Members attending the event on any night may enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 2 p.m. with their party ticket!

And at Disneyland Resort in California, celebrate the season by attending a 1940s-inspired Disney Vacation Club Holiday Dinner from 4-6 p.m. in the Sequoia Ballroom at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, featuring a live band, holiday crafts, favorite characters and a holiday feast. More details, including pricing are available here.

As all of these holiday events have proven to be extremely popular, call Member Services as soon as possible to lock in your plans. Happy holidays!
