Orlando is the place to be this holiday season! I, Giuseppe, baker extraordinaire, and my magical gingerbread pal Gumdrop are well versed in Christmas magic. So, we want to recommend some Orlando holiday festivities that are sure to knock your stockings off!
Giuseppe & Gumdrop’s Sweet Suite
Of course, we consider our very own Sweet Suite to be a must-do for this holiday season at Encore Resort at Reunion. I adore cooking up holiday fun, and Gumdrop uses his magic to mix in extra holiday cheer in everything we do. Inside our gingerbread wonderland, Gumdrop and I stir up some holiday happiness, serving cheerful crafts, seasonal stories, scrumptious treats, and so much more. We even sprinkled spirited fun all throughout Encore Resort! Be sure to come check it out.
Encore Presents: The Gift of Gators Galore!
We absolutely recommend this educational experience about Florida wildlife. Being from the North Pole, Gumdrop and I were beyond fascinated with these scaly friends. Now baby alligators, bearded dragons, and scorpions are all on our wish lists.
Holiday Splash Bash!
Simply have a wonderful Christmas time at the Holiday Splash Bash at Encore Resort at Reunion. All curated by yours truly, classic Christmas music, holly jolly hosts, festive food, and fun galore are found at this sensational party! You may even take-home special prizes.
Night of a Million Lights at Give Kids The World Village
Gumdrop and I believe that Christmas is as much about giving back as it is about the beautiful decor! At Give Kids The World we saw an opportunity to celebrate both. This wonderful experience invites you to enjoy Give Kids The World’s newest, most glittering event: Night of a Million Lights! At the event, guests can stroll through the whimsical and vibrant village and behold over 3.3 million lights gleaming and glowing at this immersive, walk-through holiday spectacular offering. Gumdrop and I couldn’t recommend it enough!

Disney Very Merriest After Hours
Disney Very Merriest After Hours was a BLAST. It was Gumdrop and I’s very first time at Walt Disney World and it did not disappoint. With Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, Mickey and Minnie’s Very Merry Memories, and Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks, there is plenty of seasonal entertainment to enjoy. We are for sure coming back!
Holidays at Universal Orlando Resort
Universal Orlando blew Gumdrop and I away with their celebration of the holidays. We loved the Christmas parade with giant balloons, the whole musical production called GRINCHMAS, and all the other amazing Christmas offerings! We want to experience it again and again!

EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays
It was such a treat visiting Epcot and experiencing how different cultures celebrate the season. Yes, at Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, Gumdrop and I indulged in festive food and fun… and we loved every second of it. You won’t want to miss it!
Overall, we were just so delighted to see all the holiday magic swirling in Orlando. There is so much to enjoy here, and we hope our list brings the merriest of memories to you and yours this holiday season.
