New Christmas Offerings at Disney and More Parks News You Need
Welcome to the News You Need! We made it through a hurricane and came out on the other side very lucky! We’ve got tons of information about what’s coming for the holidays at the Disney parks and we hope it makes your Disney trips better and your points more valuable to you. Let’s get started!
Hilton Head Island Resort is Open to Guests! After more than a month of closure to deal with the effects of Hurricane Matthew, Hilton Head Island resort has reopened to guests. The resort is in great shape and didn’t suffer much damage, but was forced to remain closed while the island itself dealt with infrastructure issues.
Camp Minnie Mickey Trees are BACK! And they’ve brought friends! If you miss the Camp Minnie Mickey trees at Animal Kingdom, we’ve got great news! Themed trees are back at Walt Disney World, this time in a Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs Marketplace! The trees will be on display throughout the holiday season beginning November 11 with themes like Disney Villains, Moana, Mary Poppins, 101 Dalmatians, and more.
The Dream Lights are Almost Here! A Frozen Holiday Wish returns on November 2, which also means the return of the absolutely stunning Cinderella Castle Dream Lights. Check your Times Guide for times each night as Anna and Elsa light the castle, usually just after sunset.
Member Magic in the Magic Kingdom is back! New dates for Magic Kingdom Member Magic for Disney Vacation Club members have been added on February 24 and March 4, 2017! This special event treats DVC members to exclusive access to select attractions, character meet-and-greets, a DJ dance party, and complimentary refreshments.

Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Disney’s Hollywood Studios has announced its own Holiday themed fireworks and projection show playing every night in the park beginning November 14, 2016 and continuing through December 31.

Celebrate the Magic to be Replaced with Tokyo Show Beginning November 4, Celebrate the Magic will no longer play before Wishes Fireworks Spectacular.
