  • Parade: Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade
  • Overlays: Attraction overlays include the Jingle Cruise and Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor.
  • Limited Attendance:  The Magic Kingdom will offer 20+ attractions including favorites like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, The Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Peter Pan’s Flight, and Space Mountain.
  • Characters: Sightings, but probably not meet and greets.
