Christmas at Walt Disney World
December 7-12, 2023
The Travelin' Trio
has a tradition to meet in a major US city in order to make a photo book of our recent trip. This year, we chose Orlando in December. We bought tickets early on for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in the Magic Kingdom. We also found a nice Airbnb in Kissimmee with a big dining room table to work on.
We arrived at Disney World earlier than our 4:00 entry time (due to special party tickets) so stopped in at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The Africa-themed lobby showed off a huge Christmas tree and other fun decorations.
On the other side of a huge window are some fun places to sit around a huge campfire. And wandering around further out back are some live animals. So Disney!
We ate dinner at the Crystal Palace to partake in the "Friendship Day Celebrashun". They had a "Buffet with Character" meaning while we ate, Winnie, Eeyore, Tigger, and Piglet wandered around so we could take pictures with them.
We then entered the Magic Kingdom at 4pm and stayed until 1am. So much to see and do!
And so many rides to ride!
More wandering around and rides after dark.
And of course there was a very special Walt Disney World Christmas parade!
A fun day as expected full of Christmas magic at Walt Disney World!
