Here’s what to expect for Holiday Celebrations:
Celebrate the magic of the season at Walt Disney World with returning favorites. Making its return for the 2nd year is “A Frozen Holiday Wish” castle lighting show. Also returning is the Jingle Cruise holiday makeover of the Jungle cruise, which should be all the more fun in its third year.
Here’s video of last year’s “A Frozen Holiday Wish”:
