It’s the most magical time of year so naturally I headed to the most magical place on earth…Disney World! I couldn’t wait to head to Disney World last week since I have never experienced the holiday season at Disney World and I heard it is truly something out of a winter wonderland. From festive treats to merry merch to delightful decor + so much more, experiencing Disney World during the holidays was honestly one of the best trips ever.
Before heading to Disney I fully prepped, I got a COVID test, brought plenty of masks, sanitizer and a thermometer to take my temp prior to heading to the park + I washed my hands at the park constantly (every time I did an outfit change in fact), I also brought sanitizing wipes on the plane as well – keeping safe is key for Disney and me so it felt good to see everyone doing their part in staying safe and following the protocols in place.
There’s so many exciting Holiday Magic Moments to cover from Disney and I am not sure where to start but let’s jump in with one of my favorite parts of every season change at Disney, the new merch! From Holiday ears to Christmas sweaters to home essentials + more, I stocked up on my favorites from the parks (in addition to some great giftables on ShopDisney that are in my Disney Gift Guide).
I love the new Peppermint Ears, Gingerbread Ears, Snowflake Ears + the Green and Red Ears perfect for the Holiday Season! They are great to wear at home while celebrating safely or at the parks with a festive look for the season! There’s also a new array of sweaters, Spirit Jerseys + so much more…way too much merch which left me buying way more than I had originally anticipated. One of my favorites are the Mickey and Minnie Gingerbread plushes because I mean look at how cute they are!
One of the best parts of Holidays at Disney is the DECOR so let’s take a look at some of the fun decor from my park visit below! From a decked out Main St to a festive Hollywood Studios, both parks go all out for the season. I love the Christmas trees, the wreaths, tinsel and of course the sparkle!
Another fun part of Magic Kingdom during the Holidays are all of the character cavalcades. From Winnie The Pooh and friends to the Princesses to Mickey, Minnie and the gang to Goofy and the Gingerbread, there are so many cute character moments constantly happening throughout the park making for plenty of fun magic moments.
Now let’s dive in to the FOOD! We enjoyed yummy treats at Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom, some I loved more than others so here’s the deal!
First up is the Belle’s Enchanted Christmas Tree at Gaston’s Tavern! It’s made of almond macarons (the green) with cranberry orange cream (the red), and a yellow M&M right on top.
Next up are the Chip and Dale Christmas Churros – Gingerbread churros topped with apple pie filling and chocolate chips available at one of the carts to the right of the castle in Magic Kingdom. This was hands down my favorite Holiday Treat from the park.
Next up is the An Orange Bird Christmas – Orange–scented white chocolate mousse filled with orange curd – Available at Sunshine Tree Terrace.
Another yummy treat is the Pistachio Chai Tea Float – Pistachio soft–serve, spiced chai tea, and a red velvet cake pop ornament – Available at Aloha Isle.
One of the yummiest treats I had at Magic Kingdom the Let it Snow Taco – Sugar cookie “taco shell” filled with salted caramel and spiced chocolate mousse – Available at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in frontier land!
I LOVED this Frozen Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate – Frozen salted caramel hot chocolate topped with marshmallows, green sugar, and a chocolate drizzle served with a souvenir Mickey Glow – Available at PizzeRizzo, Backlot Express, ABC Commissary, and Rosie’s All–American Café at Hollywood Studios.
Disney World will forever be my happy place but during the Holidays it’s extra special! Book your trip now as it’s a great time to spend the most wonderful time of year at the most magical place on earth.
