***Warning...way too many pictures, so it may take a minute for them all to load.***

 

If you have never experienced the magic of Disney at Christmas, please add it to your bucket list...like NOW!  I will say, it took a lot of extra effort to vacation for a week in the middle of December (work, shopping, etc. all had to be done a little earlier), BUT it was SO worth it!!!!  There is just no comparison in visiting during the holidays versus our spring time trips.  Don't get me wrong, Disney is always spectacular with attention to detail like no other, but the Christmas season just brings another experience.  Just wanted to share some of our highlights.  It always helps me plan our trip when I have someone to share their favorite stops, so maybe this will help you plan your holiday trip next year!

 

Christmas Season highlights:

  • Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party-MUST DO!  We loved it and MAGIC was in the air.  Literally. It was 75 degrees and snowing on Main Street. The parade was INCREDIBLE...complete with hot cocoa and cookies!
  • Visit Santa at Magic Kingdom-a special memory to make while you're here for Christmas.
  • Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Hollywood Studios-we learned after we arrived that this is the last year for this event.  If you happen to be there in the next few weeks, be sure to check them out!  AMAZING!
  • The Candlelight Processional at Epcot-beautiful and very touching.  Celebrity narrators read the Christmas story accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and mass choir.  Our celebrity narrator was Meredith Vieira. We absolutely loved this show!!!
  • Resort hop to look at all of the decorations!  We could not believe how detailed the decorations were.  Every ride, every event, just decorated to perfection.  Our hotel was home to a {HUGE} Christmas tree and a life-size gingerbread house!  Very impressive!!!

 

And of course, we filled our schedule with character meals and meet & greets. The way her face lights up when she interacts with them is worth the trip in itself! The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is always a must on our list, and all of our favorite rides.  We also made another memory on this trip.  She lost her first tooth.  Side note, if this happens on your trip, please let a cast member or hotel staff member know.  They went out of their way to celebrate this milestone with us. Tinkerbell came to visit and left a gift, and the next day at our meet and greet, Tink talked about the missing tooth!  What a magical memory!!! 

 

Here are a few pictures from the trip...so many more I wanted to share, but these are some of my favs!
