Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - Travel - 2013

Christmas = Magic!
1996 WDW Christmas Parade

The magic of Christmas & the magic of Disney fit together perfectly. In 1996 we took our children to Walt Disney World just before Christmas and in 2010 we were there just after Christmas. Fortunately, we have been there many times; with our first visit in 1986 and our next coming up in February 2014.

We love Disney World. They know how to entertain people & do it very well. At Christmas there is an extra sparkle everywhere you look. There are candy canes, poinsettias, marching bands and toys in every corner. Christmas trees in every Disney theme abound. There are many places to pose for photos, as my children know. I'm afraid I posed them everywhere!

Best of all was Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in 1996. It was held at the Magic Kingdom & a pass was needed to attend. We treated ourselves to this special event. Laughing on the rides, sipping hot chocolate and watching the parade I truly felt like a child again. When Tinker Bell flew over to the castle, touched her wand to the Christmas tree and millions of little lights glittered I felt the wonder. All that magic of Christmas past was warming my heart.

My daughter just got back from Disney. She said Cinderella's castle was absolutely amazing in its Christmas decorations. Merry Christmas, Colleen!
