This week’s theme at Focused on the Magic’s Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop is December Calendar Shots.
Visiting the happiest place on earth during the holiday season is my favourite time to visit.
My first December visit was when I was pregnant in 2007. And this year’s visit is my husband and I’s second time and our kids’ first time seeing the parks and resorts all decked out.
There’s some incredible chocolate sculpture work at Disney’s Beach Club Resort! Here’s a close up pic of one of the horses from the life size (and working!) carousel found in the main lobby.
Our 5 year old was wondering when they were going to break it all down and eat it but sadly I had to inform her there wasn’t going to be a chocolate eating party. HA!
It’s difficult not to get into the holiday spirit upon entering the gates at Magic Kingdom.
There’s the smell of popcorn, cotton candy and gingerbread in the air and there’s some sort of green, red or white holiday décor hanging from or attached to a lamppost or building.
And maybe this isn’t a big deal to you, but it’s t shirt and shorts weather! In December! This is a big deal for a Canadian family like mine. Squeezing in a few more days of Vitamin D before we don our winter coats, scarves, boots, mitts…..
There are tons of decorated trees at that can be found scattered around the Disney resorts and parks. I’m pretty sure we have over 100 pictures of just trees on our cameras.
Here’s Chip and Dale’s tree at Animal Kingdom. You can find it along with a bunch of other trees at Camp Minnie Mickey.
A few more pics of chocolate, greenery and gingerbread spotted at Disney World.
A statue inside one of the Polynesian Resort’s gift shop decorated for the holidays, the lobby of Port Orleans Riverside also decorated, a giant Christmas tree made entirely out of gingerbread at Contemporary Resort, the newest family member comes to Disney World with us – her name is Twinkle, and of course some sweet snacks!
We really have to try to visit other times of the year but all this holiday magic is too hard to resist!
