The holidays are a magical time of year but if you are looking for something a little extra special try taking a vacation to Walt Disney World in Orlando.  The decorations at The Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts can’t be beat.  They also have special parades and nightly shows to help you get in the holiday spirit.

If you are at the Magic Kingdom, Elsa has turned Cinderella’s Castle into what looks like a frozen dream.  The castle is covered with thousands of icicle lights and if you time it just right the kids can even see a Frozen themed show in front of the castle.  You can also purchase tickets to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and see an extra special holiday projection show on the front of the castle which is truly spectacular.


For years Disney’s Hollywood Studios hosted the famous Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights.  Last year was the final appearance of that due to brand new attractions coming soon.  In place of The Osborne Lights Hollywood Studios has their own projection show nightly on the Chinese Theater.  This holiday show features memorable moments from many popular Disney films.  Along with the image projections there will are special effects, fireworks, lasers, music, and even snow.


At the Disney Marketplace you can always find Santa for pictures but don’t be surprised if sometimes Santa is a little Goofy.  They also have many photo spots set up with differently decorated trees.  So take a short trip and light up your holiday season at Disney World if you can.
