Happy Holidays!

I wish I was one of those families who are, at this moment, spending the holidays at Disney World. I’ve always wanted to wake up on Christmas morning and be at the Magic Kingdom.  The next best thing for our family is watching “The Very Merry Christmas Parade” on ABC.  It has become a holiday tradition that we don’t miss.  We sit in our jammies, eating breakfast and imagining ourselves sitting on Main Street watching the parade.

The program used to be live, and I thought it was much better then.  Most of the show is now pre-recorded which has taken some of the magic out of it.  They used to display the temperature at the Magic Kingdom, and we’d be sitting around our fireplace, shivering from the cold, and wanting so badly to be in the Florida sun.

I try not to cast a cynical eye on the program because when you come down to it, it’s really just a 90 minute commercial for Disney World. We’ll watch it just the same, and we’ll lure my grandson into the tradition.

For those of you that have spent Christmas at Disney World, I would love your feedback on the experience.  Too crowded?  Would you do it again?

Wishing everyone the happiest of holidays and a peaceful, healthy and prosperous New Year.

  1. Have a Merry Christmas and an abundantly Happy New Year! 😉

  2. We went about 2 weeks before Christmas last year and that was as crowded as I could handle! I do love how they distribute the characters at Land and World for the parade so that the same ones aren’t in both places- becasue that wouldn’t be possible, since Mickey is real, right?

    Never done WDW at Christmas, but my family used to go to Disneyland. It was always packed, but we never minded. You just have to have a different touring mindset when it’s that crowded. It’s more about the atmosphere than the attractions and shows :).

    • No doubt about it, there is nothing like the Disney parks during the holidays. The holiday decorations and festivities are something that should probably be experienced at least once.
