While it's tough to choose a favorite, I would have to say my favorite park at Christmas is Hollywood Studios. The Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights is something that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime. It was so fun watching my son see it when he was 18 months old, and even more fun watching him see it as a five-year-old. We had a lot of fun walking through and trying to count all the hidden Mickeys. I can't remember exactly, but I think we found almost all of them!
To see Cinderella's castle lit up for Christmas is absolutely breathtaking. This past week, Disney lit the castle for the season and seeing pictures of it gave me chills. That's just in pictures! Seeing it in person is even better! The Christmas parade is also fun to watch because it's something different from the Electrical Parade that we have seen so many times before.

One thing that I really wanted to do this time was resort-hop to see all of the decorations. The Grand Floridian was beautiful, as always, and they featured a magnificent life-size gingerbread house. The Beach Club Resort had an incredible gingerbread carousel. Each resort also featured Christmas trees specific to the resort theme. For example, a Christmas tree at the Polynesian featured hibiscus flowers. I think my favorite Christmas tree, though, was at the entrance to Animal Kingdom. The animal-themed ornaments were amazing.

I highly recommend everyone go to Walt Disney World at Christmas at least once in their lifetime. If you're like me, you'll be hooked. I can't wait to go back in a few years and take baby girl. (Don't tell my husband, though....)
