We first experienced “it’s a small world” holiday during the day. My expectations for the attraction weren’t incredibly high, as I figured it involved a few Santa hats, a new soundtrack, and some Christmas lights strung throughout the attraction. Maybe a little more. To say we were both blown away when we discovered a thorough
Walt and Mickey are surrounded by gorgeous poinsettia flowers in the original Magic Kingdom as they gaze down Main Street, USA at the beautiful Christmas decorations in Disneyland.
Disneyland is unquestionably the most beautiful Disney theme park at Christmas-time. We recently had the pleasure of experiencing it for the first at Christmas, and we were absolutely blown away. We went in with very high expectations, and they were easily surpassed. From Haunted Mansion Holiday to “it’s a small world” holiday to the beautiful
Up until 2007, I didn’t think Disney could make Cinderella Castle look any more breathtaking. Then Walt Disney World went and added stunning icicle lights to Cinderella Castle for Christmas. While the lights are no cake 😉 they are still quite stunning, and really put the Magic Kingdom in a festive mood. We’re quite excited

What do you get when you leave your camera’s shutter open for 239 seconds during the fireworks portion of Holiday Illuminations at Walt Disney World? This. This is a single-exposure shot of the fireworks, pretty much straight out of the camera (it has been sharpened and I removed an odd spot of lens flare). Although
Don’t expect the Train Station to look this pretty decked out with Christmas decorations in 2011, as the powers that be have left the “Let the Memories Begin” marketing out to clash with the Christmas decorations. Although I’m not a fan of the “Let the Memories Begin” decor in front of the Train Station, it
If you’re a Disney fan, there is no better place than Walt Disney World to have your photo taken to use in your annual Christmas cards. With so many great decorations and locations within Walt Disney World, choosing the best spot can be somewhat daunting. You might find yourself with a veritable case of awesome-overload.
Halloween isn’t even a distant memory, and Thanksgiving has yet to happen. Yet retailers and cities are already beginning to roll out the Christmas decorations. Soon, so will the Brickers! Tonight, actually. I have plenty of excuses as to why (we won’t be at home much between now and Christmas, so we want to get
