Christmas time has arrived at Walt Disney World! From Park to Park and Resort to Resort, the halls have been decked and the trees have been trimmed!

Christmas on Main Street

We have already seen a sleigh full of holiday merchandise, too! And since the parks are so nicely decorated, we thought we’d chat about the BEST spots for your family to snap Christmas photos this year!

Magic Kingdom

Main Street U.S.A

Main Street U.S.A. is decorated so nicely for the holiday season. Here, you can snap a few pics in front of the massive tree.

Or you can stand right in the middle of Main Street U.S.A. so you can get a few shots of the garland and wreaths with Cinderella Castle in the background.

In Front of the Castle

Cinderella Castle has decked its halls for the holiday season and for entertainment offerings like a Frozen Holiday Wish. Taking pics with the castle at night gives you a stunning holiday-themed background.

In Front of Jingle Cruise

Jingle Cruise (the holiday-ified Jungle Cruise) is all decked out for the holidays! You and your fam can snap a fun and campy photo in front of the Jingle Cruise sign this holiday season.

So, snap a photo while dancing at Holiday Hoopla Dance Party in DinoLand U.S.A. or take a photo-worthy of a Christmas card in front of the new life-size puppets in Discovery Island.

Echo Lake

Gertie is officially rocking the Santa Hat, the tree is up, and the ornaments are floating on Echo Lake. This makes for a stunning background for a family photo.

Sunset Boulevard

Sunset Boulevard is coming to life every night with Sunset Season Greetings. You can take a few fun and festive group photos while the Tower of Terror glows with holiday scenes. And if you wait until the perfect moment, you might even get a bit of snoap (Disney’s version of snow) in the background.
