WALT DISNEY WORLD & CHRISTMAS IN JULY!

So, I thought we’d jump in with some of our favorite photos of Christmas at Walt Disney World. One of the absolute best things about living so close to WDW is being

So, what are our final thoughts on the D23 Magic & Merriment 2012 at Walt Disney World?

Some events were more fun, interesting, entertaining, and educational than we expected – specifically the archival presentations and dinner at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Other events were very disappointing – private Illuminations viewing

The second evening of the D23 Magic & Merriment Event at Walt Disney World took place in the Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.

Our Arrival…

Somehow we got it into our heads that the seating for the Holiday Shorts and Shows at the Premier Theater inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Day Two of the D23 Magic & Merriment events at Walt Disney World began at Magic Kingdom… at 7:45 in the morning. Did you know that there aren’t even Parking Cast Members in the parking lots that early? And, did you know that if it’s foggy, it can be

Being able to attend a dessert buffet and watch the Epcot fireworks from a World Showcase Pavilion (ended up being Italy), was one of the selling points when nora suggested to nick that we attend the D23 Magic & Merriment event. We’ve both seen many blog posts about dessert

During the first day of the D23 Magic & Merriment 2012 at Walt Disney World, we were given access to the Hospitality Suite at American Adventure. There was a private elevator, actually a bit of a misnomer because it’s the same elevator used to transport handicapped guests upstairs but

We are not big fans of Magic Kingdom. Maybe because we never came to Walt Disney World when we were young and we never had kids to bring? So we visit Magic Kingdom much less frequently than the other theme parks at Walt Disney World. However, during the Christmas

Two of our guides were also our guides in 2010… Mark & Jeff. So, as it turned out, we
