I just returned from a trip to Disney World. This trip has fully put me into the festive spirit. We attended Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party where all the characters were dressed in their Christmas attire, Cast Members handed out hot chocolate and cookies and we watched awesome holiday shows. There was also Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, with a special appearance by none other than Santa Claus!
The decorations throughout all the parks were amazing. There were huge, beautiful Christmas trees at Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios (we didn’t visit Animal Kingdom but I’m sure there was a beautiful tree there as well). In addition to the beautiful Christmas tree, Disney’s Hollywood Studios had the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. It was breathtaking. I have never witnessed anything as beautiful as this during the holiday season. The whole street was lit up with beautiful Christmas lights. And at timed intervals, music would play and the lights would dance along with the rhythm. It is a must see.
So with just 27 more days until Christmas, I have started my Christmas decorating and shopping.
