|Where does Santa go after delivering gifts? On a Disney Cruise!|
A faithful Williams Family Blog reader, Carolyn, asked about how “Christmasy” a warm, dare I say tropical, vacation on Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney World could be during the holidays. Yes, Carolyn, there is Christmas in the tropics. Our warm weather Disney holiday vacation was very Christmasy. Here’s how. . .
|Our first taste of the holidays was at both airports as there was a Christmas tree from our departing airport and at Orlando International!|
Every gust received this holiday print to take home as a special gift. Ours is framed and hanging on the wall!
We were also greeted with a buffet of holiday treats including cookies and hot chocolate and an ice sculpture of Santa's sleigh and reindeer of course.
|Two hands, two cookies! He said the frosted ones were best.|
Here's the giant Christmas Tree in front of Disney's Hollywood Studios. This photo was taken in the morning. . . not night. Can you tell we arrived early?
Our warm weather Disney holiday vacation was just as Christmasy as a holiday at home, possibly more so. And, it was definitely more relaxing from my point of view. . . no cooking, no cleaning, no cleaning up.
We made memories and stayed “present” as a family instead of focusing on the presents. Our time together was the greatest gift and often staying home allows for other distractions. And, with a full ship and very crowded parks, other families feel the same. Thanks, Disney, for a great holiday vacation!
