Levi’s Store, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Disney Springs.

4. THE GREAT IRISH HOOLEY 2016

If you are in Orlando for the first weekend of September, then make sure you don’t miss the Great Irish Hooley at Walt Disney World! Raglan Road is a crowd favourite in Disney Springs and this weekend is no different. Spend the weekend singing, dancing, eating and enjoying the amazing shows from the Raglan Road Dancers. Be sure to book your table before you go as it fills up fast!

7. MICKEY’S VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS PARTY

Once Halloween is over, it’s time to think about chestnuts on an open fire, mistletoe and all things Christmas! There is so much going on in Walt Disney World around Christmas time you’ll be full of Christmas cheer from Thanksgiving to New Years! One of the most popular events is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. This Magic Kingdom event runs from November and will have holiday themed fireworks, shows and parades!
