Thanksgiving weekend is usually the beginning of our family's holiday celebrations. We visited Sea World during that time (see blog post here). We also toured several of Walt Disney World's resorts in order to see the beautiful decorations.
My personal favorite resorts are the Grand Floridian and the Wilderness Lodge, although all of them are beautiful.
Throughout December, our family visited Walt Disney World's parks to enjoy some of the wonderful holiday celebrations offered to guests.
On December 4, 2015 and January 4, 2016 we visited Disney's Hollywood Studios to see the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights. This was the final year of the lights at DHS and we were happy we could see them one last time
On December 9, 2015 we went to Epcot and were thrilled with the Candlelight Processional again this year. Ana Gasteyer narrated the retelling of the Christmas story accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and a fabulous mass choir.
On December 16, 2015 we were at the Magic Kingdom. We thoroughly enjoyed A "Frozen" Holiday Wish at the castle forecourt stage. Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristof were the featured characters on stage while Elsa transformed Cinderella's Castle into a stunningly beautiful castle draped in lights to simulate ice.
There were a few holiday events at Walt Disney World that unfortunately we were not able to participate. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and Holidays Around the World at Epcot are two very popular and wonderful experiences we hope to do next year.
Our family enjoys incorporating Disney's holiday celebrations into our own holiday traditions. Have you visited Walt Disney World during the holidays?
