A trip to Disney World is always a magical time, no matter when you decide to go. However, there are a ton of events and celebrations that happen throughout the Walt Disney World Resort each day. It can be helpful to know about these and plan your trip around any that pique your interest. To do so, we've compiled a video sharing all the events happening this year and when to go to Disney World in 2018. Enjoy:
What are you most excited for at Disney World in 2018? Here's a highlight of some of the fun things happening this year:
- Epcot International Festival of the Arts: January 12th - February 19th.
- Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival: February 28th - May 28th.
- Toy Story Land opens in Disney's Hollywood Studios: Summer 2018. The exact opening date hasn't been announced, but we suspect it will be around Memorial Day weekend.
- Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in Magic Kingdom: mid-August - first week of November. The select party nights will likely be disclosed by late spring, especially since Disney World likes to start ticket sales as early as possible for the exclusive event.
- Night of Joy: September. The Christian concert dates haven't been announced, but will likely occur mid-September.
- Epcot International Food & Wine Festival: September - November. This is one of the most popular festivals of the year at Epcot! While the dates haven't been disclosed, we wouldn't be surprised if it's the longest one yet.
- Holidays Around the Walt Disney World Resort: November - December. This is another popular event that takes place in all of the four theme parks. We're hoping to see the exact dates within the next few months.
- RunDisney Events: February 22nd - 25th for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, April 19th - 22nd for the Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend and November 1st - 4th for the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend.
