I thought it’d be nice to take you on a journey through the Holidays Around the World at Epcot. During this festive event, you’ll be able to delight in great music, savory dishes, and unique holiday stories told around the globe. This event will be going on until December 30th.
…so come with me on this Epcot Sights and Sounds tour.
Today we’re taking a tour through SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration. This year’s event emphasizes bringing holiday memories, festive shopping, delicious food, and stunning live shows all together. Get inspired for the holiday season in the aquatic world.
Did you know you could do the holidays at Disney for FREE?!? Christmas resort hopping at Walt Disney World is my new yuletide tradition. It’s a fun way to enjoy the Disney life on a budget and you’ll be able to save one of your park hopper days on your trip.
It’s something I tried for the first time a few years ago with OutdoorsyDiva and now I am totally hooked!
The newest retail MagicBandcoming from the Disney merchandise team, features a patriotic Mickey Mouse standing in front of an American flag. This limited release item costs $24.95 and can be found in select merchandise locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.
There is also a new Fourth of July limited edition pin with Carl and Ellie from Disney-Pixar’s “Up.” This pin has an edition size of 3,500 and will be released at Disneylandand Walt Disney World Resorts, as well as a new open edition Minnie Mouse bow decorated in red, white and blue.
There’s nothing like the holiday season. Rather it’s sitting cozily next to a fireplace with family or feeling the spirit of Christmas while walking around the Walt Disney Worldonsite hotels. Although I love both activities, I think you’d probably guess that the latter has become my new holiday tradition. A few years ago I discovered this new way of enjoying a free Christmas at Disney World. When I’d set out to do a post to help my fellow ThemeParkHipsters save on theme park holiday fun, I had no idea I’d discover how wonderful AND free a Disney holiday experience could be.
Christmas week is finally here and I am soooo happy to be able to spend another year with my loved ones. In case you’re a visitor or a central Florida local, I wanted to give you all some alternative holiday options to celebrating this festive occasion. The on-site hotels of Universal Orlando Resort will be offering a variety of holiday happenings for the 2014 season.
During this yuletide season Disney traditionally takes gingerbread house building to a new height, making Walt Disney World the premiere holiday must do for all things merry! Due to Frozen record breaking success, one would expect the Norwegian fairy tale to bring its artic chill across the parks.
Take a look at the amazing time-lapse video below of the all-new Gingerbread Holiday Ice Castle at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, inspired by the film. The 17-foot-tall masterpiece is visible from the monorail as guests head to and from Magic Kingdom Park. The Frozen gingerbread castle took months to bake and five days to build. It is adorn with sugar snowflakes, gingerbread shingles and chocolate-coated trees with Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and more amongst the sugary creation.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… well kind of. Walt Disney World Resort has started placing Disney Christmas decor all around the magical central Florida destination!
You can now see holiday displays throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. The Holiday Services team will be installing yuletide designs at Epcot after park hours on Nov. 13th-14th. The Holiday Services team will also be installing holiday decor at Disney’s Animal Kingdom after park hours on Nov. 17th-18th. This is definitely my favorite time of year at Disney.
Happy Wednesday Hipsters! It’s time for your Christmas at Disney World news courtesy of our friends over at Destinations in Florida.
