The Top Ten Reasons
We Love Christmas At Disney World!
This year will make seven years straight that have spent part of the Christmas season at Walt Disney World. We have visited Disney World during most times of the year. Christmas remains our favorite. It has become a family tradition.
When I decided to write this post, I asked my son, “What makes Christmas at Disney World so special?” His response was, “It’s Christmas, and it’s Disney!” While this is true, it makes for a short post. I wanted to delve a little deeper. So, with more thought, we chose the top ten reasons we love Christmas at Disney World.
We love Christmas lights! Disney goes all out with everything; Christmas lights included.
These cheery, red flowers blanket the ground, line the streets, and even Christmas trees.
Disney has even found a way to make this cold weather hater love snow. Delicate flakes (soap suds) fill the sky and drift to the ground with temperatures near 70 F (20 C). Brilliant!
Cinderella Castle is always beautiful. During Christmas, lights adorn the castle and illuminate the night sky.
Holidays Around the World
The Epcot World Showcase is not to be missed at Christmas. The holiday traditions of each of the 11 World Showcase countries give even more to explore: decorations, Santas, and storytellers fill the area. For the countries that do not celebrate Christmas, you will find interesting exhibits on their traditions.
Would it really by Disney without shopping and merchandise? At Christmastime, Walt Disney World sells a plethora of special items. Clothing, decorations, sweet treats, Disney World has you covered with special, seasonal products. What better place to do Christmas shopping?
Each of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks has their own centerpiece Christmas tree. The Disney resorts each display, festive trees, too.
Ginger Bread Houses
At each Disney deluxe resort, beautiful and fragrant gingerbread creations await. At some of the resorts, you can buy the gingerbread to enjoy.
Not only are the theme parks decked out with Christmas cheer, but the resorts go all out, too.
How can Christmas be complete without music? Dickensonian Christmas Carolers show up at resorts. A gospel choir sings at Epcot. Christmas music plays throughout the parks. Silent Night playing overhead while snow falls on Main Street, USA is a truly magical experience at the “Most Magical Place on Earth.”
I did not mention Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party or the Candlelight Procession. These are great, also. The extra price of the party and the long waits for the Procession keep us from enjoying them every year. There are still plenty of reasons we love Christmas at Disney World.
