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 – Do People Still Use Film Cameras?

dis_reala_003

Isn’t that a beautiful picture of Cinderella’s Castle at Walt Disney World? Believe it or not – this was taken using a film camera. You remember those right? Carrying around those yellow Kodak boxes and winding to advance to the next photo…you don’t see people doing that too often anymore. However – my husband is pretty old school and is an avid collector and user of film cameras – he has tons at home, and loves bringing them on vacation with us. He captured some pretty amazing things on this last Disney trip…

Check out his full Disney Christmas album here, and while you’re at it, check out his other photos too

Is this partly a shameless shoutout to get you to go check out my husband’s amazing photos? Well…yes. But in my defense – it’s not often you see people taking photos at Disney World with a film camera, and it’s pretty cool to get to see just how awesome they turned out!

The Top Three Best Things About Walt Disney World At Christmastime

I was lucky enough to get to travel to Walt Disney World the week of Christmas this year – and it was probably one of the most amazing experiences of my life! Getting to combine two things I love very much (Christmas and Disney World of course!) was definitely a dream come true! There are tons of amazing things to see/do at Disney during the holiday season, but I have to say these three are my absolute favorites:

CakePop

1. The FOODDisney Food is always amazing – but at Christmas time they make it even more special! With awesome treats and special meals – I personally enjoyed the colorful baked goods available on Main Street (like this adorable Mickey snowman cake pop!), but trust me there’s plenty more where that came from! Many WDW restaurants offer special meals during the holiday, or add special dishes to their buffets to make the season that much more magical (and delicious!)

2. The Osbourne Lights – I know I have recently talked about how awesome the Osbourne Spectacle of Dancing Lights are, but I truly can’t say it enough. They are absolutely amazing – watching the street go from bare and boring to bright and cheery was probably the best thing about this whole vacation for me – the lights blinked in time to music, and it even ‘snowed’! We saw them light up on Christmas Day, and the experience was so Christmas-y and special – I wish I could afford to make it a yearly Christmas tradition!

3. The Shopping – I love shopping, so anytime you combine that with Disney and Christmas? Please, me and my credit cards stand no chance against the sheer volume of amazing Disney Christmas souvenirs available at the Parks. My personaly favorite? The Mickey Gingerbread man mix that comes with a Mickey Gingerbread man cookie cutter!

I will forever cherish all the memories I was lucky enough to get to make this past Christmas – and if you ever have the chance to check out Disney at Christmastime – I highly suggest you take it! Aside from my three favorite things about it, theres also tons of beautiful décor, live musical performances, appearances by Santa Claus, and of course that Christmas Spirit is always in the air!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Osbourne Lights Are Truly A Sight To Behold!

I just returned from a week at Walt Disney World and I am missing it already! Getting to spend Christmas at WDW is something I didn’t think I would ever get to do – and I am SO grateful that I got to spend it there with my husband and my parents.

There was one thing I was particularly excited for on this trip – and that was to get to see the millions of Christmas lights come to life at the Osbourne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I had heard and read about it, and when we were in Disney in December of 2011, we missed seeing it – so I could not WAIT to check it out

We went over to the unlit display about an hour before dusk on Christmas day to get a good spot right in the middle of it all, and when the switch was flipped (by an adorable little girl assisted by Santa Goofy!) let’s just say that we were NOT disappointed…

The lights moved in time to Christmas music, and they even made it snow! This was the perfect Christmas Day activity – and I was so glad to get to see them light up – it was a magical experience for sure, and one I am so grateful to finally have gotten to see and share with my family!

TGIF!
