It’s the festive season, and we’re sharing all the holiday festivities you can take part in at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotels.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year at the Most Magical Place on Earth. Along with holiday decorations, food, and entertainment, you can also enjoy after-hours events such as Disney Jollywood Nights and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party as part of the holidays at Walt Disney World. And at Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotels, you can celebrate the festive season in some particularly fun ways!
How the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotels Are Celebrating the Holidays
The Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotels have announced their line-up of holiday celebrations, including special shows and even the chance to meet Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus!
Join Santa’s elves for a tour of the special Elf Outpost set up for the season at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin. The spot includes a toy workshop and bakery, where guests will have the chance to enjoy complimentary cookie decorating. And the toy workshop will offer crafts and toys available for purchase.
Tales from the North Pole
A special paid experience that will happen twice nightly, Tales from the North Pole will feature Santa’s elves giving a special reading of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Families will be able to enjoy milk and cookies while they listen, and can go home with a copy of their own book of the tale.
Santa and Mrs. Claus Meet and Greets
On select nights now through December, guests can meet Santa, Mrs. Claus, and Kandy Kane in their Florida vacation clothes! They’ll be meeting in Santa’s Tiki hut, where you can grab a photo with the group alongside reindeer and palm trees.
Life-Size Chocolate Holiday Santa Scene
You’ll be amazed by the massive life-size chocolate sculpture located in the lobby of the Swan. Weighing about 2,000 pounds, the entirely chocolate sculpture features Santa sitting in his chair alongside a chocolate nutcracker, chocolate fireplace, chocolate Christmas tree, and chocolate toy train. The special display will be available to see throughout December.
Magic Keys for Santa on Christmas Eve
Staying at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin for Christmas Eve? Children will be able to hang a “magic key” on their door to help Santa find his way there. These will be available exclusively on December 24 to pick up at the concierge desk.
Dancing Lights Show
Throughout the holiday season, you can enjoy a special light show on the outdoor causeway. The performance will take place nightly from sunset to 10 PM, illuminating palm trees and featuring holiday music.
