Christmas on Main Street
  • Dec 10, 2018
    We asked the panelists ...

    How do you recommend making the most of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation during the holidays?

  • Welcome to the Moms Panel! Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort can be described as the festive season getting gift wrapped in Disney magic!

    Depending on dates of travel, you might consider attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. This is my FAVORITE holiday event at Magic Kingdom Park. You will LOVE the oh-so-jolly Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade featuring giant toy soldiers marching down Main Street, U.S.A. My family really appreciates the Special Disney Character Appearances with favorite Disney Characters donning their holiday best too.

    On Christmas Day, select restaurants will serve Christmas Day Feasts. Special holiday menus will feature traditional flavors of the season. Book your holiday feast as soon as possible. Alternatively, reserve a Candlelight Processional Dining Package as part of the 2018 Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays. Candlelight Processional is a truly heartwarming and awe-inspiriting experience.

    Tour the beautifully decorated Disney Resort hotels displaying gigantic holiday trees, life-size gingerbread houses, twinkling lights and magical holiday decorations. The Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail is truly AMAZING and thoroughly worth seeing too.

    If you are staying through New Year's Day, there are several festivities to welcome 2019 Disney-style! New Year's Eve at Walt Disney World Resort will offer unique experiences such as, the New Year's Eve Bash hosted by Atlantic Dance Hall at Disney's BoardWalk, and special New Year's Eve multi-course, prix fixe menus at select restaurants.

    Wishing you magical holidays at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Thank you for stopping by!  Each year throughout the holiday season, the Walt Disney World resorts are transformed into a sea of festive whimsy.  Each resort is uniquely decorated with holiday displays that are certain to impress everyone in your family.  My family ensures that a tour of these incredible displays are part of every holiday visit to Walt Disney World.  Some of our absolute favorite holiday displays are at Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and Disney's Boardwalk Inn.  

    Have a magical and merry visit!

    It is truly the most wonderful time of the year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! With so much to see and do, and so many other people who want to see and do it all too, to make the most of your vacation, this is not the time to sleep in. My plan is to arrive at the theme parks as soon as they open, especially if I can do a park with Extra Magic Hours in the morning. We see as much as we can while the crowds are still drifting in, and we have a definite plan for a lunch break.

    After lunch is when I have my FastPass+ times scheduled. This gives you at least three more attractions with shorter wait times while the crowds continue to grow throughout the day. Space them out if you can, and fill in with shows, parades, and other fun activities. We especially enjoy trying some of the festive holiday snacks offered during the season.

    Make sure your plan includes Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam at Disney's Hollywood Studios. It's just about the best way to end a Christmas season day at the theme parks.

    Go with a plan, start your day early, and make time to enjoy the festive spirit around you!

    Every season at the Walt Disney World Resort is magical, but I think there is extra pixie dust floating around during the holiday season!  Between the gorgeous decorations, exciting entertainment, and fantastic food, there is something uniquely special about visiting during the holidays!

    I highly recommend visiting each park both during the day and after dark.  The holiday decorations throughout each of the parks are lovely during the day, but as the sun sets and all of the lights begin to twinkle, the magic is nothing short of spectacular!  Since each park transforms at night, it is like you are seeing everything for the first time!

    We love to explore Epcot World Showcase during the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays while helping Chip 'n' Dale search for ornaments for their Christmas tree in Chip 'n' Dale's Christmas Tree Spree!  During this scavenger hunt, we get to really focus on all of the pixie-dusted details that have gone into making Epcot World Showcase so beautifully unique, especially during the holidays!  Since we also love exploring Disney Springs, Stitch's Holiday Gift Hunt is another fun-filled scavenger hunt that takes us to places we have never visited before, along with some of our classic favorites!

    No matter what you choose to do during your magical holiday visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, I am sure that you will have a fantastic time!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!

    May I begin by wishing you an especially warm welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where it's our delight and pleasure to assist with your upcoming plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort during the Holidays.

    I have some very special and fond memories from my own families Christmas stays at Walt Disney World Resort such as the oh-so festive and truly romantic Horse Drawn Excursion - Holiday Sleigh Rides at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground or strolling around the beautiful seasonal offerings found within the 2018 International Festival of the Holidays at Epcot where I can highly recommend stopping by the United Kingdom Pavilion to visit jolly old Father Christmas clad in his traditional green velvet robes.

    My top Yuletide tip is to try and arrive early to the Disney Parks and this is especially so on December 25th where there's no better way to begin your Disney Christmas day than with a Starbucks beverage and perhaps one of the delicious and tempting Holiday Treats featured in this recent Disney Parks Blog!

    Wishing you and yours a blessed & Happy Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Hi, there!

     A visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is always magical, but it's exceptionally so during the holiday season!

     I recommend experiencing all the seasonal offerings at the theme parks, but did you know there's holiday fun to be had at Disney Springs too? A stop at Disney Springs during the holiday season is a must-do! Be sure to stroll through the Christmas Tree Trail in Disney Springs Marketplace. With over 25 uniquely themed trees, you're sure to find a tree based on one of your favorite Disney films or attractions. It's the perfect place for a photo op! No holiday visit to Disney Springs is complete without meeting St. Nick, so don't forget to go to Santa's Chalet. This unique meet-and-greet is super cool because you can check-in with one of Santa's helpers and then shop or eat while you wait to meet him. When it's your turn to chat with Santa Claus, you'll conveniently receive a text message letting you know it's time to return! Since there isn't an admission fee at Disney Springs, you can enjoy all the holiday offerings for free. That's more money in your pocket for your holiday shopping list!

     Wishing you an oh-so-jolly holiday visit at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I can’t get enough of the gorgeous, vintage-style decorations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – it might be my favorite of the theme parks during the holidays! The decorated storefronts and lampposts are straight out of a classic Christmas movie, and there are lots of fun touches throughout the park, making it fun to grab a spiked hot chocolate flight (find it at Fairfax Fare) and wander the park to take in all the details. There are so many delicious seasonal treats and drinks, so arrive hungry!

    There is a Flurry of Fun taking place at Disney's Hollywood Studios during this magical season! My family loved Sunset Season's Greetings - there's nothing like standing on Sunset Boulevard, watching the Hollywood Tower Hotel light up with fun short holiday vignettes featuring beloved characters. There’s catchy music, a colorful light show, and a magical snowfall, and it gives me all the happy holiday feelings! 

    You won’t want to miss the holiday addition to the wonderful For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. Sing along and laugh as Arendelle’s Royal Historians share their own version of Anna and Elsa's famous story. When it’s time for the characters to sing about “that time of year,” it truly is “a holiday every night!” My family and I loved it so much, we returned more than twice to soak up all the yuletide cheer.

    I’m wishing you the most merry and magical visit this holiday season!

    My fellow panelists had some fantastic ideas! My family recently returned from a holiday visit to Walt Disney World Resort and one of my favorite parts of my trip was exploring the special holiday decorations in Toy Story Land. Since Toy Story Land opened this summer, this is the first year where we can get a peek at how Andy decorates his backyard for the holidays. You can meet Buzz, Woody and Jessie in their special holiday costumes and the see large Buzz, Woody, Jessie and Rex figures throughout the land with their own holiday touches. Throughout the area, you will find a cranberry-and-popcorn garland, a Hamm sugar cookie and green alien ornaments. Plus, since you shrink to the size of a toy when you enter Andy's backyard, all of these amazing festive decorations are super-sized! Even the Green Army Drum Corps wore holiday scarves as they performed for Guests.

    Be sure to peek behind Hamm's sugar cookie to check out the creative way Andy found to prop the cookie up! Come back to see us if you have any additional questions as you continue planning.

    Happy Holidays! You’re walkin’ right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. during the most wonderful time of the year, and I know you’re excited about it! The holidays are a wonderful time to take a respite to Walt Disney World Resort, and there’s plenty for you to do!

    When my family visits during the month of December, we always like to peruse the holiday merchandise. Magic Kingdom’s Emporium is our #1 stop, with plenty of accessories, wardrobe options, and holiday collectibles to choose from. After donning our winter wear (at least as much as Florida will allow!) we’re off on the Jungle Cruise attraction as it transforms into “Jingle Cruise” with plenty of holiday jokes to spare. Even Trader Sam gets in on the fun! Spending the day at Magic Kingdom as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party sets in makes our day all the more magical. You can’t see snow on Main Street at any other time! After you’ve had your fill of hot chocolate and sugar cookies, I highly recommend Resort hopping to see all the amazing Christmas trees that adorn the Walt Disney World Resort lobbies. From themed trees with special decorations to the color bonanzas at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, there are Christmas masterpieces everywhere. Stop by Disney’s Beach Club Resort to see the life size carousel made from gingerbread and desserts!

    Top off your night with my family’s favorite winter spectacular, Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! These fireworks run earlier in the night, making it the perfect night cap for small kids over a Mickey pretzel. Enjoy all your favorite snowy scenes from Disney movies as well as beautiful music scored perfectly to match. Set your Mickey Santa hat atop your head, and prepare to have a merry visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort for my family always include a stay at The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Nothing says Christmas like decorating our golf cart with twinkling lights and exploring the resort’s festive decorations!

    This resort feels more like a community with sprinkles of Disney magic, because many of the guests decorate their cabins and RV’s to create their own winter wonderland for all to enjoy! Chip 'N' Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long's are the best! They make everyone feel welcome and you're assured a rootin' tootin' good time!

    After some s'mores, hop on to the water launch docked at the marina for a ride to the Magic Kingdom Park, to see a beautiful Christmas tree as you enter on Main Street, U.S.A. The holiday wreaths, complete with a candle on each lamp post, show all the time and effort made to dress this park up in its holiday best.  

    My family likes to soak in all these sites while snacking on some freshly popped popcorn. For us, it’s not about racing from attraction to attraction or park to park. It’s more about enjoying the scenery and spending time together. After all, it’s what the Holidays are all about.

    What makes a Walt Disney World Resort vacation so wonderful to me ANY time of the year is simply experiencing the magical moments with the people most special to me. During the holiday season, though, the entire Resort comes to life with festive Christmas music, beautiful lights, gorgeous decorations, and an overwhelming feeling of joy that I simply LOVE experiencing with my Mouseketeers. Watching the toy soldiers trumpet down Main Street U.S.A. together during Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade gives me chills and makes me feel like a kid again! While I’d definitely encourage you to enjoy that parade and some of the other wonderful special holiday events my fellow Panelists have shared about, my number one piece of advice for visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the Christmas season is to slow down and soak in the magic. You’ll find beauty all around you and sometimes the most magical holiday memories are created from enjoying the little things. I’ll never forget the first time my family experienced the incredible gingerbread carousel at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. With hidden Mickeys located throughout this amazing masterpiece, we stayed for a long time, enjoying the scrumptious aroma, learning from the Cast Members about how it was made, and squealing with joy each time we found another hidden Mickey. From each of the theme parks to all of the Resort hotels, you’ll find holiday magic woven throughout everything you see and do. By taking the time to enjoy the little details, you’ll have a truly magical holiday visit and create memories with your loved ones that you’ll cherish forever.

    Walt Disney World Resort is the Most Magical Place on Earth, but this holds especially true during the holiday time.  Some of my favorite places to explore during the holidays are the Disney Resort Hotels.   In the lobbies of each hotel you will find magnificently decorated holiday trees and in a select few Resorts, amazing gingerbread houses and other adorable creations.   My favorite lobby has to be at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. You will find a larger than life gingerbread house and an amazing tree filled with beautiful lights and ornaments.   If you are intrigued by the Resort hotel decor as I am,  you may want to consider taking Disney's Yuletide Fantasy guided tour.  Cast Members will take you on a tour backstage and fill you in on the secrets to how Walt Disney World turns into a winter wonderland during the holiday times.   This tour is only offered seasonally and would be a great addition to any November or December visit.  You may even take some decorating ideas back from Walt Disney World into your own home.

    There are so many wonderful things to do during the holidays that I would need a book to share all the ideas.  I hope you enjoy reading some of my fellow panelists ideas as well and get to utilize them on your next holiday vacation. 

    Dream as Dreamers Do,

    Thank you for bringing this question to us! Since the holidays are a busy time of year and there are so many possible activities, I like to do my research first. Once you read all of the fabulous answers from my fellow panelists, I suggest you take a look at other Disney Parks Blog articles. Here are two of my favorites: 

     

     

    If you do attend special holiday events, like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (which several of my fellow panelists mentioned!), do look for and download the event guide/guide map. I use this guide faithfully to make a party plan. Between the Disney Parks Blog articles and videos, I always catch the holiday spirit. No matter what happens, what we can or cannot afford, the holidays are about cherishing our love and laughter together!

    The Christmastime holiday season is one of my favorite times to visit Walt Disney World. Yes, magic always abounds in the theme parks all year-round, yet at Christmastime the magic is so palpable you can see it — literally, it snows! All throughout the theme parks and the Walt Disney World Resort hotels and at Disney Springs, Christmas is all around you, and it's so wonderfully fun.

    Of course, the Christmastime holiday season is a favorite time for lots of Guests to visit Walt Disney World. The merriment comes with, yes, lots and lots of mirth makers, so making the most of a Walt Disney World vacation during the holidays means knowing how to make the most of the time-saving services that are available. One of my personal favorites is Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering.

    Want someone to bring you your figgy pudding? Ok, well, you might not find anyone to bring you your traditional figgy pudding, but you can use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering to order up your Quick Service meals ahead of time. There are lots of participating locations and the service makes for a great way to lessen your waits during popular meal times.

    Like Jiminy Cricket says, "Christmas really is all around us!" Share the spirit of the season!

    Apart from all the merry experiences you can find at each Walt Disney World Resort theme park during the holidays, many of our favorite family memories have been at the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. We love to embark on our own resort tour to see each hotel decked out with unique Christmas trees and holiday displays. Children and adults enjoy searching for all the resort-specific touches in each lobby. Some of our favorite themed displays are located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Wilderness Lodge, and Disney's Yacht Club Resort. Apart from the sights, you will find delightful holiday smells and sweets in each hotel as well. Don't forget to slow down and enjoy these festive moments in unexpected places throughout your trip. Just thinking about our vacation memories makes me want to enjoy a seasonal beverage or hot chocolate from Mizner's Lounge at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa while listening to the Grand Floridian Society Orchestra play Christmas tunes in the gingerbread-infused lobby. Doesn't that sound fantastic? Take time to appreciate the hard work of Cast Members who have created magical and memorable experiences around every corner of the Walt Disney World Resort this holiday season.

    Ahhh… the holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort. There truly is nothing like it! My fellow panelists have listed so many magical ideas, I’m taking notes for my next visit. There is so much to explore and enjoy during the holidays, your magical visit will be filled with pixie dust and holly! I hope you’re excited to enjoy all the holiday ChEAR!

    During a recent visit to the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, I tried out a few of the tasty Holiday Kitchen eats. I highly recommend the shareable Turkey Poutine found at the Refreshment Port. The Sweet Potato Fries, topped with Turkey and Gravy, Cranberry Relish, and Crispy Onions was a nice holiday twist on a favorite that will delight a hungry crew. 

    At the Feast of the Three Kings Holiday Kitchen, I found my all-time favorite holiday cocktail from my home, Puerto Rico. Coquito, a tropical eggnog-like drink comes in both kid-approved non-alcoholic and alcoholic versions. I was so excited when I saw it on the menu! 

    And lastly, I can’t forget to mention the super fun Holiday Cookie Stroll. This is a family-friendly activity that will satisfy the sweetest of sweet-tooths and delight the cookie-lovers in your crew! When you arrive at the festival, grab a Festival Passport and look for the Holiday Cookie Stroll stamp page. Collect all the stamps then head over to the Holiday Sweets and Treats food booth for your Completer Cookie and cold milk. YUM! 

    I hope you have a Very Merry time visiting the most magical place on earth during the most wonderful time of the yEAR! 

    See ya real soon!

    Hi there! The holidays are a glorious time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. My fellow panelists have you covered for all you could ever want to see or do over the Christmas season, but let’s not forget that the holidays also include ringing in the new year! 

    There are spectacular ways to enjoy New Year’s Eve at nearly every park. One of the most unique ways to celebrate is at Epcot in the World Showcase. As each country represented in the World Showcase strikes midnight, there is a special announcement and a burst of fireworks! There will also be a unique presentation of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth starting at 11:40 p.m. with a countdown to 2019 at the end.

    There are, of course, Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks in Magic Kingdom Park for New Year’s Eve. If you’ll be traveling with little ones that might not stay awake till midnight, celebrate a little earlier and enjoy the fireworks at 6:30 p.m. that night! 

    I hope you have a magnificent time at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Hi there! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You must be SO excited to experience the holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort! Combining the spirit of Christmas AND the magic of Disney is pretty much the BEST vacation ever, in my opinion. Something that I highly recommend throughout the year, but especially at Christmas, is Memory Maker and I would love to tell you why.

    Purchasing Memory Maker allows you to download all of the PhotoPass photos taken during your trip. My family comes home with hundreds of digital memories from each of our vacations, so when I say it is worth it, I mean it! Now here is why I think it is a must-have around the holidays. Picture (see what I did there?) this, your family on Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom Park, surrounded by beautiful Christmas decorations, with Cinderella Castle behind you glistening with countless lights. Everyone is in the picture because there is a perfectly placed PhotoPass photographer ready to capture the moment for you. Now, imagine that image on next year's Christmas card! I think that sounds perfect! And don't forget - if you purchase Memory Maker in advance, you save money and make it an even better buy!

    I hope you have the merriest of holidays and please let us know if you have any other questions!

    My fellow panelists have given so many wonderful suggestions on how to make the most of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation during the holiday season! Like Emille, I'm taking notes for my own holiday visits! The one very important note I would add is the holidays last a bit longer at Walt Disney World Resort than they may in your community. While some events, like the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays including the Candlelight Processional, don't begin until closer to Thanksgiving, holiday decorations begin going up and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party begins in early November! December is a difficult time for us to travel so I'm delighted to enjoy the holiday festivities a bit early. 

    I would also be remiss if I didn't mention the delicious treats available during the holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. Not only will you find yummy snacks and desserts in the parks but the resorts also have special offerings during the holidays. We're always on the lookout for special treats and this year we found the delicious Bibbidi Bobbidi Bundt Cake at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  And no holiday would be complete without a tasty shingle from the epic Gingerbread house at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. You can purchase a shingle at the Gingerbread House and they're also available around the corner at Sandy Cove Gifts and Sundries. The gingerbread shingles travel well so they're a great souvenir to bring home to friends and family. 

    Wishing you a magical, merry visit ~ Amy H.

    The holiday season is truly the most magical time of year to spend at the most magical place on earth!

    My family is fortunate enough to celebrate both Hanukkah AND Christmas, and even though Hanukkah has ended this year, we were fortunate to be able to experience some of the beauty of the festival of lights right there at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    At Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, a delicious selection of goodies awaits you at the L'Chaim Holiday Kitchen! May I recommend the Black & White cookie? It's divine with a cup of tea or coffee! Elsewhere in the World Showcase, storytellers relay the Hanukkah story, and if you're not familiar with it, it is quite a tale of bravery and good fortune!

    If you have a chance to head over to Disney's Hollywood Studios, as my friend Robyn mentioned there is a very special holiday ending to For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, that includes Hanukkah as well!

    My family also played our own game of spotting menorahs around the Walt Disney World Resort hotels and grounds, and had a lot of fun with that too! Making and bringing special Hanukkah family t-shirts is another great way to celebrate, and we got lots of compliments on ours!

    Any trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is filled with pixie dust, but this time of year Tinkerbell is working overtime!

    There are so many ways to celebrate the Most Wonderful Time of the Year at The Most Magical Place on Earth! While I very much love everything already mentioned, I am always delighted by the dozens of Disney details.

    For me, part of the wonder of this time of year is noticing what came to life magically over night while visions of space mountain danced in my head. At home it's taken me three weeks to put up maybe a dozen ornaments on my tree. But just like Santa, Mickey's magical holiday helpers actually decorate entire sections of Walt Disney World Resort during one sleep. Like how Disney's Hollywood Studios transforms from Halloween to winter decor as soon as Santa's elves are done trick-or-treating. You may even stumble upon one of Disney's famous Christmas trees where it wasn't there the day before.

    You can step things up a notch by planning park outfits to match the beautiful decor. Some guests pairing vintage glam to the Flurry of Fun and neon-lined streets of Disney's Hollywood Studios. Others bring their holiday best to take in the sights and sounds of the Candlelight Processional in Epcot. You'll even see guests take advantage of the picture perfect setting of Magic Kingdom Park during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party that they'll don matching family jammies right in front of Cinderella Castle for their holiday cards!

    Even the paper plates and cups get in to the spirit of the season by going red and green. There really are little holiday touches everywhere you look that turn an already magical Disney day into a true delight!

    More than any other time of year, the holiday season sparks personal memories of festive family cheer and sharing magical moments with loved ones. While my family always feels that way during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, my wife and I always take an opportunity to relive a magical experience from our own childhood with our own kids.

    My favorite, by far, is reliving my oldest childhood memory from Walt Disney World Resort by booking Advanced Dining Reservations at Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. I can still vividly remember singing along for our Strawberry Shortcake dessert and laughing at the hilarious hijinx at Pioneer Hall. I am not too proud that I shed a tear when my daughter mirrored my experience from 30 years earlier. 

    Making the most out of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation during the holidays is about sharing moments with the ones you love the most. My suggestion is to mix personal moments from vacations past during your holiday present, with the intention that they continue to share the magic of Walt Disney World Resort during future holidays.

    Some other favorite relived holiday experiences include: Holiday Dining at Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom, decorating a personal tree in our Resort Hotel Room with ornaments found at Disney's Days of Christmas and riding the "Jingle Cruise" Jungle Cruise 3 times in a row.

    Enjoy Making Merry Magical Memories!

    I love visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season. The entire property is transformed for the holidays and it feels like “A Whole New World” than during previous visits. The parks are usually less crowded in the mornings giving you time to experience rides and attractions in a relaxed and magical atmosphere.

    I make it a point to enjoy all the special holiday meals and snacks. This is the best time to make new memories with my family. There is nothing like bonding with love, laughter, and food. Holiday snacks are offered for a limited time and I try to enjoy something new at each park.

    I highly recommend taking the time to observe and enjoy the holiday decorations at each Disney Resort Hotel, Disney Springs, and Disney Theme Parks. Pay attention to the special touches and details sprinkled throughout. You never know what will make a great backdrop for your family photos. Each theme park will have special celebrations throughout the holidays. Sit down with your family and choose at least one that you would like to enjoy at each park together.

    Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort is all about making memories, so put down your phone and let Disney’s PhotoPass Photographers get everyone in the picture so you can relive these moments with your Memory Maker, once you have returned home. You will cherish them for years to come I guarantee it.

    The holidays are a time to celebrate and enjoy the company of family and friends. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of a typical Disney vacation and just enjoy the fact that you are able to celebrate with friends and family and enjoy every magical minute of it.

    Happy Holidays,
    Andrea
