Each year, the Disney Parks boast the overnight transformation from Halloween to Christmas on November 1. This year was no different, but one Disney Cast Member aims to share a different perspective on the holidays at Walt Disney World Resort.

In a video shared on TikTok,  Maddie (@maddieb1998) followed a trend of Disney Parks fans sharing their favorite parts of the holidays at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort:


‘tis the season 😍 #disney #disneyparks #disneychristmas #wdw #disneyworld #christmas #disneycrowds

But instead of sharing magical Disney Christmas memories, Maddie shared photos of bustling crowds, wait times over 100 minutes, and the My Disney Experience app showing no available dining reservations.

“‘Tis the season 😍,” Maddie wrote sarcastically. She also explained that she saw wait times of up to four hours at Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster during the holidays.

“🤣🤣🤣 Why I will never go for Christmas,” said one Disney Parks fan.

Of course, there’s still plenty of magic during the holidays at Walt Disney World Resort! Guests staying at onsite Resort hotels can make dining reservations 60 days ahead of time for carefree mealtimes.  Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane service can help reduce wait times.
