Religious Services in the Walt Disney World Area
Walt Disney World usually hosts religious services on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday in the Fantasia Ballroom of Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
The service schedule for December 25, Christmas Day, is as follows:
— Catholic Mass: 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
— Protestant Service: 9:15 a.m.
Note that the Contemporary Resort parking lot operates under parking restrictions, which means that unless you are staying there or have a dining reservation, you will need to use Disney transportation to get there. Resort guests around the monorail beam are encouraged to take the monorail or watercraft system to Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Other guests should drive to the Magic Kingdom and take the shuttle bus to the Contemporary. It boards near the park’s main entrance and begins service to the Contemporary starting at 7 a.m.
NOTE: Remember to allow for time to clear security checkpoints when boarding the monorail at the Transportation and Ticket Center or at the monorail stations at the Polynesian Village Resort and the Grand Floridian.
To arrange for taxi service, contact Yellow/Checker Cab at 407-422-2222.
