Glow with authentic Christmas magic
With authentic festive decorations adorning the resort, transporting guests into a magical world of wonder and cheer, Christmas truly is one of the best times of year to visit Shanghai Disney Resort with family and friends.
The new show, Mickey’s Magical Tree Lighting Ceremony, will come to the Gardens of Imagination, bringing a magical moment every evening for family and friends to gather together and share Christmas wishes. Featuring Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse and a live band, guests will find themselves tapping their feet and smiling as a huge and dazzling Christmas tree lights up in front of their eyes.
As part of the resort’s festive celebrations, Mickey Avenue will light up with Christmas garlands stretching across the street, adding an extra-special touch of seasonal sparkle, and beloved Disney Character meet-and-greet locations will feature holiday-themed backdrops, with guests even having the opportunity to stop by Santa Goofy’s location for a Christmas surprise.
Mickey Avenue will also see the return of the “Happy Holidays, Mickey!” show in the mornings throughout the Christmas season. In the afternoons, everyone is invited to dance along to the holiday-themed “Christmas Swing!” show.
No Christmas would be complete without a trip to the local holiday market in search of gifts and delicious snacks, which is why this year guests can once again visit the Disneytown Christmas Market, where a variety of craft stations, food booths and other holiday-themed activities await.
On weekends, roaming carolers will lend an air of seasonal celebration to the festivities and will take part in the traditional Disneytown tree lighting ceremony with Mickey, while Santa Claus greets children at a special photo location from Fridays through Sundays.
Guests venturing into Disneytown in search of special photo opportunities can also enjoy the Disneytown Tree Meadow, a series of seven holiday-themed trees, each decorated to represent a different Disney character or story. Guests should gaze into the windows of the World of Disney Store, as they transform into a vivid magical story featuring Mickey and his friends celebrating Christmas.
