Disney at Christmas

After Elsa *froze* Cinderella's castle

The best time of year to visit Disney World is at Christmas. It's also their busiest season so I guess I'm not the only one who feels this way. There's a reason so many people travel from all over the world to see Disney World at Christmas; think about it - the magic of Disney PLUS the magic of Christmas?? You see what I'm getting at?

The hubs and I had a 4 day weekend where we drove down to Florida on Thursday (had to stop at 4 Rivers Smokehouse for lunch), visited the Disney resorts that afternoon to take in all of their decorations, and finished Day 1 at Disney Springs (Downtown Disney) for supper at Earl of Sandwich and dessert at Ghirardelli.  Friday we did Epcot, and Saturday was all about Magic Kingdom. Sunday was our driving day :(

We spent 13 hours at Epcot and 15 hours at Magic Kingdom...we did it ALL. And of course had to stay until the very end to see the spectacular fireworks shows!

We made reservations for lunch at Le Chefs de France at Epcot - so good! We had fish and chips for supper in the UK then headed back to France for Buche de Noel for dessert. In America we got to watch the Candlelight Processional where the Christmas Story was read from the Bible by Chandra Wilson with a huge choir and orchestra to play Christmas music. So awesome! Another fun thing at Epcot was how each country had their own mini show talking about their Christmas customs. Loved hearing how the world does Christmas! After an epic Christmas-themed firework show, we headed back to the shuttle to get some rest before another long(er) day at Magic Kingdom!

We got to Magic Kingdom an hour after it opened and headed straight for the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. We hit as many rides as we could and then parked along the side of the street for the Christmas parade. That night we stopped again for the Electrical Parade then camped out for over an hour in front of Cinderella's castle for the Frozen Special where Elsa froze the castle! Then there was a cool light show on the castle and fireworks!

We had so much fun celebrating the Christmas season at such a magical place and can't wait to go again!
