Christmas at Disney

As we gear up to head back to school next week, we are all focused on one thing - our next Disney trip. Christmas at "the world" - there's nothing like it. If you have visited WDW during the Holidays, then you know exactly what we are talking about. For those of you who have not experienced the ambiance of the parks during this magical time of year, then you need to book your trip now!!
Tinkerbell sprinkles an extra bit of pixie dust over all of Disney world at Christmastime. Decorations abound! Cinderella's Castle is draped in beautiful white lights. Magic Kingdom becomes a virtual winter wonderland right in the middle of Central Florida. Mickey, Minnie and the gang don their finest Christmas attire. Hollywood Studios hosts the Osbourne Family Lights. EPCOT is home to the Candlelight Processional - a Christmas spectacular of epic proportions. The aroma of gingerbread and hot chocolate waft through the air. And the trees - wow. Disney takes decorating Christmas trees to a whole new level. Disney does not stop at decking the halls of the parks. The Christmas joy is spread throughout the resorts too. In fact, during the Holidays, our family makes a point to go what we refer to as "resort hopping". We visit each of the different resorts just to take in all of the decorations. The Grand Floridian has a life size gingerbread house. No, seriously, it is big enough to fit a small store. The Contemporary has an enormous Mickey-shaped wreath hanging on the end above the monorail entrance. It is several stories tall.
Disney is always amazing, but there is just a little something extra in the air during Christmas. Not only are the parks and resorts sparkling with Christmas spirit, so are the guests. Everyone is filled with the joy and excitement of the season.
So if you have never been to Walt Disney World during the Holidays, it is one trip we would highly recommend.
