Disney Very Merry Christmas really gets you into the Christmas spirit like no place on earth. It’s not surprising that Disney hits Christmas out of the park. They are the best at transporting you to another place – whether it’s to childhood or out of Florida. Orlando during this time of year has the best weather. It’s Florida Cold meaning you will get the lovely low 70s and maybe 60s at night. Pretty much heaven! When the park clothes for the Very Merry Christmas event, the fake snow starts and you feel like Christmas has come to this already magical place!
Snowfall on Main Street
The snow fall on Main Street is such a lovely experience. We had a blast playing and dancing in it.
Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration
Cinderella Castle host several shows during the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party that both the kids and adults will love. The castle projections are just so much fun! The photos just don’t do it justice! The newest Disney Show is called the Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration. The reindeer’s are my favorite part of the show. They are just so cute.

A Frozen Holiday Wish
Elsa freezes the castle over in an amazing show that any Frozen fan will never forget.
Grab treats all over the park at the treat stations. They have complimentary cookies, hot cocoa and other gleeful goodies.

Epcot Candlelight Processional
Holidays Around the World is an annual tradition at Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park. The event which starts at the end of November and runs through the end of November transforms Epcot with festive decorations and live entertainment. One such event, which has been going on for years, is the Epcot Candlelight Processional.
The Candlelight Processional tells the story of Christmas and features a 50 piece orchestra, a choir, and a celebrity narrator. The celebrity narrator for our trip to see the Candlelight Processional was Edward James Olmos, a favorite of our household. Mr. Olmos read the story with a passion and energy that was truly inspiring. Most of all, it was incredible to see him become choked up by the performance of the choir and orchestra. He has been doing the narration for the Candlelight Processional for 18 years! Other celebrity guests this year include the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, Anthony Mackie, and Ming-Na Wen (Agent May for you Marvel’s Agents of Shield Fans).
