My friends, many of you — like me, I might add — have never been to Walt Disney World during the Christmas season.  This is a bucket list of mine, that is for sure, but to date, I have not been able to experience the beauty, the majesty, and the fun of being able to take my family on that trip.  One day that will change, but today, I’ve got a very special treat for you.  My friend Andy — the creator of the Facebook page WDW Shutterbug, and a photographer on par or better than Tom Bricker, in my opinion, agreed to take some photos of the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and perhaps even Epcot and the resorts — time permitting — so that I could share his work with you, and hopefully bring the Disney Magic home to you so that you can imagine, just for a while, what your experience might be like when you make it to Walt Disney World for Christmas.

If you have been to the Magic Kingdom during this time of the year, I hope you enjoyed it, and that you make it a regular point to get back there.  But, if you have never been before, well, this post is for you, and I hope you enjoy the Disney Magic that Andy’s pictures bring to your home, wherever that may be.  Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy our virtual look at the Magic Kingdom through the work of our friends at the WDW Shutterbug!

This is just a taste of what you can experience at Walt Disney World during the Christmas season.  Of all of these photos, my friends, tell me, which is your favorite picture?  Please let me know, and if you have a moment, click on over to Andy’s page and thank him for sharing his love of Disney with all of us!

Stay tuned for more pictures as we explore other areas of Walt Disney World!

Disney In Pictures Theme: Thankful Things!

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by!  It’s Thanksgiving week here in the United States, I hope you all have a wonderful, safe holiday, and remember all of the things that you are thankful for!  I am thankful for (among other things) all of you stopping by and visiting on a daily basis!  On that thought, our Disney In Pictures theme for this week is “Thankful Things!”  Much like we did for Veterans Day, this theme is opened up to all of you for whatever you are thankful for!  If it’s at Disney related, that’s just a bonus, but it doesn’t have to be!

  1. Dig through your photos, and find a few pictures that epitomize what you are thankful for.
  2. Email them to me at mickey@mydreamsofdisney.com, and include your name, why the picture is special to you, and your blog if you have one!
  3. Then, check back on Sunday to see your photos proudly displayed!

As a side note, I’ll have plenty of things to talk about this week, including a special Thanksgiving post for Thursday, so I hope you’ll stick around in between turkey eating and Christmas shopping to see what great things we have for you!  Who knows, you may even find a thing or two here on the site that you may want to turn into Christmas presents for this year!

Lastly, on Friday I’ll be part of a special Black Friday Contest, so look for more details about that this week as well!  The host is my friend Jonathan from Mousekejournals and Mouse and Memos, if you haven’t seen those sites yet, go check them out!  They are well designed and full of great Disney information!

Once again, I hope you all have a wonderful, safe Thanksgiving!  Send in those photos, and thanks for stopping by!
