Waldorf Astoria Orlando is the destination to create memories during this magical season.

Magic is Mickey and Minnie, dancing reindeer and the unforgettable sound of marching toy soldiers. Magic is merry strolls around World Showcase, surprise celebrations down Discovery River, incredible thrills and visiting a galaxy far, far away.

From watching holiday movies poolside to fireworks on New Years Eve to  nightly views of holiday projects on Cinderella Castle – your Waldorf Astoria holiday experience awaits…
