If you happen to be traveling to Orlando in January, you’ll find the Disney event calendar is bursting with options for customized fun. The following are a few Disney World events in 2024 that you’re going to want to be sure to enjoy while you’re in town.

Pack for All Types of Weather This January

Visitors heading to Disney World in Orlando in January can count on the festivities being top-notch at all times. What’s a bit more unpredictable is the weather in Central Florida this time of year. Temperatures typically fluctuate between the low 50s in the early morning hours and the low 70s by mid-afternoon. Of course, some days you might find temperatures soaring in true Florida style! In any case, when you’re excited to make the most of the fun and don’t want to miss a moment of it all, be sure to pack in layers for your journey so you can comfortably savor the experience at the parks.

Enjoy a Magical Marathon in Disney Style

January marks the month when those travelers who enjoy running their way to fun wherever they travel can participate in the annual Walt Disney World Marathon. It’s both a challenge and a fantastic way to be a part of a thrilling event that brings locals and visitors alike together in the name of Disney magic. The marathon is paired up with a collection of shorter runs that guests can sign up for. All of the action happens between January 3 and January 7, 2024.

The routes that runners can relish wind their way through the Disney Parks, providing athletes with plenty of motivation to cross the finish line thanks to whimsical views. Those who choose to can enjoy dressing up in Disney-themed apparel for the marathon and other races. No matter what route you pursue, be sure to sign up early as these races tend to fill up quickly each year.

Experience the Fun of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts

Celebrating its eighth year as a fan-favorite Disney Festival, EPCOT International Festival of the Arts rolls around again this January much to the delight of Disney visitors from across the map. It’s still one of the newer festivals on the lineup of annual options, but it continues to thrill from start to finish year after year with good reason.

The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is scheduled to run from January 12, 2024, through February 19, 2024, giving travelers plenty of time to enjoy the experience alongside family and friends. It’s often described as the “ultimate celebration of world-class food, visual art, and live entertainment.” That means there’s something for everyone to enjoy whether you’re looking forward to paint-by-number murals, the Broadway concert series, tasting sessions across 13 booths, or opportunities to speak with artists about their one-of-a-kind work on-site. The majority of scheduled Disney World events in 2024 and activities happen between opening hours and 5:00 pm each day but do make sure to check the park app for specific show times that vary throughout the festival.

Enjoy End of Seasons Décor Before It’s Swapped Out

For the January travelers heading to Orlando and Disney World who happens to have a passion for all things holiday décor, you’ll find that things don’t start getting switched up at the parks until about mid-January. That means if you make your way here at the beginning of the month, you can still enjoy those iconic Disney decorations that make the holidays here so entirely magical! You can even purchase seasonal merchandise in the stores through February which can make for a fun souvenir hunt with family and friends.
