T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – In Honor Of Christmas (Part II)

Last week I wrote about how lucky I am to have traveled to WDW TWICE at Christmastime – and I shared some of my favorite memories from those trips with you. Since today is Christmas Day – I thought it would be fun to share some pictures from our Christmas day in Disney World:

This giant Gingerbread tree looked good enough to eat (thankfully it was blocked off or else I might have tried to take a nibble…)

Mickey shaped snacks are the best ones, aren’t they?

It’s sad this is the last year for the Osbourne Spectacle of Lights – I am SO GLAD we got to see them be lit on Christmas Day – it was the best experience of the whole trip by far!

TGIF – and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – My (Other) Favorite Time Of The Year To Visit WDW

I wrote recently about why Halloween is the Perfect time to visit WDW – and while I totally stand behind all my reasons, I must admit – I have a real soft spot for Disney at Christmastime, too – they start the evening of Halloween and work through the night to remove the fall and pumpkin décor and get right into that Christmas spirit starting November 1st. Here’s some highlights of what you will see at Christmastime at Disney World:

First of all, there’s gingerbread everywhere – literally. Houses made of it, displays – and don’t worry – they sell it to eat too (otherwise that would just be cruel!)

HUGE, beautifully decorated trees at every Park and Resort

And lights GALORE – display after display, and the castle gets a little sprucing up for the season too – in the form of 200,000 LED lights that change color and create an amazing sight!

Characters dress up too

And it’s always good to have an accurate Christmas countdown, too (1 day until Santa!)

Why isn’t Christmastime my #1 FAVORITE time to visit WDW, you might ask? Well – the main reason is that it is SUPER CROWDED during the weekends and the week of Christmas – and while I loved it, I can see why it would NOT be ideal for most people with families/kids, or anyone traveling there for the first time. Also, holiday Resort room rates tend to be higher…not exactly budget friendly. But it sure is pretty, isn’t it? It’s a truly magical, special experience that is worth the extra money and braving the crowds at least once in your lifetime – trust me!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Decorating For Christmas – Disney Style!

With Christmas being so close (a mere 10 days away!) I thought it would be fun to focus on some ways you can “Disney-fy” your tree!

 

The Disney Store has some really great ornaments (not to mention tons of other great holiday gifts!)

And you can always find some cute Disney ornaments at Hallmark too
