Christmas holds a special place in our hearts (especially Mike’s), so you can imagine the joy and anticipation our house is filled with as the big day approaches! Every year, our family counts down the days to Christmas with an Advent calendar, turning each day’s reveal into a fun experience of its own.
However, not all Advent calendars are created equal. Some just have that extra sprinkle of magic. And who does Christmas magic better than Disney? With a plethora of Disney Advent calendars out there, finding the perfect one can be as tricky as finding the hidden Mickeys at the park.
Fear not, fellow Christmas enthusiasts! I’ve taken the festive plunge and rounded up the 11 most magical, delightful, and downright enchanting Disney Advent calendars available this year. Dive in and discover the perfect countdown for your family below!
The 11 Best Disney Advent Calendars 2023
The Disney 100 Advent Calendar a Storybook Library: Countdown to Christmas with 24 Exciting Storybooks comes loaded with paperback books starring Disney and Pixar characters. Each storybook is individually wrapped to ensure that it stays a surprise until the moment you open it. The books are mostly holiday-themed, but they contain some traditional stories too featuring characters like Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo, Woody, and Mickey Mouse.
For those with bookworms as children, it’s the perfect way to get a new book to read every night leading up to Christmas!

Inside the Funko Pop! Disney Advent Calendar – Holiday, you’ll find 24 Funko figurines like Minnie Mouse, Pluto, and Donald Duck that you can display as collectibles, fashion into ornaments for the Christmas tree, or simply let the kids take them and play.
For fans of Funko Pop!, it’s a must-have.
This next Advent calendar is perfect for those who love LEGO, Star Wars, or both!
The LEGO Star Wars 2023 Advent Calendar comes with 9 Star Wars characters, 10 mini vehicles, and 5 mini builds, including the Endor bunker, Clone Command Center, and more!
After each LEGO character or build is put together, you can display them, set a sweet Star Wars LEGO scene, or stage your favorite Star Wars moments during playtime.
Parents of younger children should be cautioned, however, as the pieces are small and could be a choking hazard. For older children and their parents, on the other hand, it’s an Advent calendar that makes an out-of-this-world gift!
The Disney Advent Calendar – Official Christmas Board Game combines an Advent calendar, a puzzle, and a board game into one convenient package.
Each time you open a day on the Advent calendar, you will find a puzzle piece or game piece figurines like Princes Ariel, Buzz Lightyear, and Olaf. Then, you can put the puzzle piece in its place until you finally reach Christmas and wind up with a complete board game!
When it’s your turn, you roll the dice to move your figurine around the board so they can take their proper place under the Christmas tree. It’s a great game for everyone with directions simple enough for the smallest members of the family to play.
Play it together the night before Christmas for some friendly competition.
