Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade at Animal Kingdom takes on a holiday theme and becomes Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade. Basically the same parade with holiday decorations added to the floats and characters.

The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights is the primary Holiday Happening at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights sparkle with yuletide cheer.

A Disney tradition now in its 41st year (2011), the Candlelight Processional is a moving presentation of the Christmasstory in readings by a celebrity narrator and music by a Mass choir and 50-piece orchestra.

Where and when does it take place?

This event takes place in the America Gardens Theatre in World Showcase in Epcot. It is an outdoor (uncovered, not climate controlled) setting and is not cancelled due to inclement weather. It is recommended you dress accordingly.

It begins November 25, 2011, and runs every evening until December 30. Shows are approximately 40 minutes. Each evening there are three shows -- 5, 6:45 and 8:15 p.m. (except December 4, there is no 5 p.m. show)

 Epcot Storytellers

Throughout the holidays, World Showcase countries share their legends and lore of the season with Storytellers. The presentations last anywhere from 7-14 minutes in a standing-only location.

BTW I got this info from All ears.com not sure if you have been to that yet it has a great deal of info also the DIS.com....

we have been to AK,DHS and Epcot and MK all in Dec and it was a lot of time but we did not go to all the parks when we would go in Dec.

we did not go to MK during the day just at night for MVMCP and then a day at Epcot for the Candlelight processional.

The others year we would go AK or DHS and Epcot.

HAve a great time my family is going in Dec but I can not get time off from work:(

You need to go to HS and see the Osborn lights.  It is so cool.  Also, they have Santa's in each of the countries in Epcot which is pretty neat too.  i love going at Christmas cause everything is decorated so pretty and it is so festive.

Make sure you eat dinner before "Mickey's Merry Christmas Party' ... last time my husband and I waited thinking resturants would be open but only the Burger/Chicken place in Tomorrow land was open.  It was rather a bummer...but the party was fun!!

The Osborne Lights are my favorite.

We live in FL now but we're from NY, and we hung out by the Avenue of Americas NY set up for the light show... it happened to be cool that night, so we actually wore light jackets & scarves, with the fake snow and the hot chocolate it felt more like Christmas than it had since I left NY.

Also so much fun looking in the windows, you can find the craziest things, like that famous leg lamp from A Christmas Story... gotta have a good eye but you can have a lot of fun wandering around there near Christmas.

Peace, and all that jazz...
