Welcome back to the Mickey Monday linkup: the linkup centering around a love for Disney, sharing that love and connecting with others. I hope this linkup will become a great place to turn to for Disney content each week by helping readers find that great mouse-eared content. I’m co-hosting with John from Run. Geek. Run (disney), so of course check him out.
I was at Disney World right when the Christmas Season was beginning. I went down for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend and was hoping to see some festive Christmas decorations. Not a lot was up yet, but I did get to see a bit!
Osbourne Family Lights
I got to see the Osbourne Family lights while running the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. It was a cold and rainy experience, but when I got to Hollywood Studios and saw the lights, it was all worth it! I must have spent a good 10 minutes of my race just wandering around looking at all the lights, taking pictures, and spotting hidden Mickeys.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
We went to the second Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. After grabbing a quick bite to eat (be careful – a lot of the quick services aren’t open for dinner…), we went and stood in a very long line to see Sandy Claws. The line took forever because jack was spending a good amount of time interacting with each family. This was nice, but I think it was a bit much because he was a very popular character.
We ended up missing the parade, but Kendra from When’s My Vacation took some awesome pictures, and she is allowing me to share!
We did get the chance to see the FROZEN castle, all light up, along with some fireworks and Christmas songs.
After the fireworks, we stopped to say hello to the 7 Dwarfs. This line wasn’t as long as the one for Jack, but there was still a little bit of a wait. As you can see, I got to hold hands with Dopey, and Happy kept giving me kisses! It’s not very often that you get to see all the 7 Dwarfs together, so I was pretty excited for this picture.
There is so much to see at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! We didn’t have the chance to do everything we wanted, but it was still a fun time!
Unfortunately, that is the extent of the decorations and holiday festivities that I saw. Right after I left, more decorations went up. Luckily, my friend Patricia took a trip right after I did and got to see more decorations. Check out her guest post here!
Holidays Around the World
And, looking back to a few years ago, I had a great time visiting Epcot and learning about the Holiday traditions from different countries. You can read my recap here!
It’s Mickey Monday!!!
