Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Orange Loop. Today we are sharing our Disney Bucket Lists and what you should add to yours.
When it comes to bucket lists, especially Disney bucket lists, it seems like everyone has at least one. For me, I probably have a 100 or so bucket lists, each one different from the last. However, at the top of my bucket list — my ultimate Disney bucket list — is celebrating Christmas at Walt Disney World!
When you start talking about things to do at Walt Disney World for Christmas, there are five main things that I want to tackle when I’m able to go with my family. This list is in no particular order of importance to me, I want to experience all of these.
First and foremost, I want to experience the splendor that is Main Street, U.S.A. in it’s Christmas finest. Seeing the exquisite building lit up and decorated, catching the magical feeling that you have on Main Street, and hearing the songs from the performers, I can only imagine what it is like. Additionally, I want to experience the different changes that the Cast Members employ on the various attractions. An example of this is the Jingle Cruise.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
Another thing that I want to experience when I’m celebrating Christmas is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. This party is something that I absolutely want to do one time. From what I understand, most people feel like experiencing it once is all you need, because this separate ticket experience is kind of pricey. But for someone who’s never been there before, I definitely feel like it is something we need to experience.
Epcot’s Candlelight Processional
Every year at the Epcot theme park, Walt Disney World unveils the incredible Candlelight Processional. Located at the amphitheater outside of the American Adventure Pavilion, the Candlelight Processional is a special event that involves a guest narrator and special musical performers to tell the story of Jesus’ birth. For this reason alone, I absolutely have it in my list of things I need to experience at Walt Disney World.
Holidays around the World
Coupled with the Candlelight Processional is the Holidays around the World exhibits at each of the Pavilions. These special festivals tell the holiday traditions that you can encounter at each country. Unique and charming, I believe that hearing these different variations on Christmas will leave a lasting impression with me, and would you also.
One of the last things I want to experience at Christmas is an in-depth look at how the different resorts get setup for Christmas. Pictured above, the Wilderness Lodge Christmas Tree is a striking example that I really want to see in person. Additionally, taking a look at the Gingerbread House at the Grand Floridian and the Carousel at the Beach and Yacht Clubs really catches my attention.
The little things at Walt Disney World are what make it the premier vacation destination in the World in my opinion. Tell me, how did I do on my list? What have I left off that should be included? Please let me know in the comments, and thanks for following along on one of our dreams!
