“Light Up Madison”–A Holiday Celebration in Natural North Florida, December 1, 2019

The town of Madison, in Madison County, always goes “all out” for Christmas.  Not only do local businesses dress up their storefronts, but folks from neighboring towns and counties enjoy an afternoon of shopping, dining and watching an elaborate Christmas parade.  The events begin at 4PM and end with the spectacular nighttime parade.

 

Madison is located on US90, about midway between Tallahassee and Interstate 75.  The city is centered on Four Freedoms Park and the restored Madison County Courthouse.

Madison’s annual holiday celebration is a “Light Up” event, culminating in a nighttime parade, that follows the arrival of Santa.  There’s plenty of food and entertainment throughout the afternoon, so plan to enjoy one of north Florida’s most beautiful small towns this season.

Downtown Christmas Open House and Parade–Perry, Florida–December 7, 2018

Leave it up to our friends in Taylor County to come up with a new “twist” on Christmas.  This year, in addition to a “Santa’s Little Helpers” parade, there will be a tribute to “Sheriff Taylor” at the “MayPerry Christmas” festivities.

 

Perry, the vibrant County Seat of Taylor County, is the perfect place to gather the community for some great food, a Santa appearance, a cake walk and some shopping at Arts and Crafts tents.  There will also be extended shopping hours at local stores, as well as a “shopping passport promotion”.

 

Downtown Perry has several historic building nestled around the modern courthouse.  Plan to take a walk around town while you’re there.  And if you arrive early, don’t miss one of the famous (at least to this writer!) donuts at Johnson’s Bakery, just off the courthouse square on Jefferson Street.

Disneyland’s ‘it’s a small world’ Holiday 2018 edition

Disneyland really lights up around the holidays. One of the most memorable holiday attractions has to be “it’s a small world” Holiday which decorates its iconic facade with thousands of twinkling lights and changes over its interior to reflect the distinctive holiday traditions celebrated by children from around the world.

This is the 22nd year to see the holiday version with all its dolls and toys and a chance to reflect on its importance with Joe Peters, Technical Director, Disney Parks Live Entertainment.

“The holiday version of this Disneyland classic debuted in 1997, and I’ve had the pleasure of working on it since the first transformation 22 seasons ago,” said Peters. “Every year, it brings me so much joy to watch the first guests hurry over to be amongst the first to ride ‘it’s a small world’ Holiday. The most emotional experience is watching guests gasp in awe as they marvel at the exterior of the attraction, just as the sun sets and the lights come on. I never get tired of watching their reactions. I am reminded each time how lucky I am to do what I do.”

“This year, be sure to look for the new gingerbread archway in the European scene of “it’s a small world” Holiday,” added Peters. “The arch is adorned with an adorable gingerbread boy and girl and oversized candy canes. And the finale room is more vibrant than ever with a new color palate and LED lights on the greeting signs this year.”

Thanks to LaughingPlace we have a video of the 2018 edition of the classic holiday attraction:

I love the “A Christmas Fantasy” parade music in the background as the ride starts. One of my favorite Disney parade soundtracks, even if it’s a pretty short loop.

Is a ride on “it’s a small world holiday” a part of your holiday tradition at Disneyland?

The Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs Opens for 2018 with New Trees and Tons of Holiday Cheer

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World, especially with the opening of this year’s Christmas Tree Trail on November 8, 2018.

I have to admit that this is one of my most favorite events of the year at Walt Disney World. I love the holiday spirit the trees invoke, and I also admire all the creativity and work that goes into creating the themes on each tree.

Among the 27 trees, you’ll find trees dedicated to each of the Disney Princesses (Snow White is my favorite), as well as popular movies like 101 Dalmatians.

One of the most talked about trees is sure to be the new Haunted Mansion-themed tree, complete with a life-sized “Bride” and dark Victorian-inspired ornaments. If you watch the Bride long enough, you’ll even see her heart beat. The perfect tree for those who can’t wait for Christmas, but are sad to see Halloween go.

Haunted Mansion Christmas Tree

My favorite is the Star Wars-themed tree, topped with a light saber, and featuring character ornaments, plus a tree ribbon made from Chewie’s bandolier sash. As a long-time fan of Star Wars, I appreciate the detail that went into decorating this tree, and the Jawa eyes peeping out all over the tree were a delight to see.

As guests walk from tree to tree, there are many humorous signs on the walls, each one themed to the tree it’s closest to.

Guests can also meet and have their photos taken with Santa in the center of the trail, in a little chalet staffed with elves, until December 24, 2018.

The final tree in the trail is one of the best, imho, and features a tribute to all of Walt Disney World from the parks to the resorts, complete with a monorail that circles the tree (it doesn’t move, but still looks very cool!). It’s a lovely way to end the Christmas Tree Trail.

The Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail is open from 11am to 11pm daily until January 6, 2019. The entrance to the trail is in the Marketplace by Once Upon A Toy, and it is free to enjoy as much as you’d like. I suggest seeing it once at night to get the full effect with all the lights. Then return during the day to see all the tree details better.

It’s definitely a #DisneyHolidaysMustDo!

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Family Video Review

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Family Video Review

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Family Video Review – There’s fewer ways to get into the holiday spirit than with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! Check out our video recap and Family Review below.

Subscribe to our YouTube Channel to receive notifications for new Family Video Reviews. Thank you for your likes and comments!


In November 2018, we were invited to experience Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom, and no one says NO to Mickey. So, I brought along some of our “Mom-tributors” for this event for some perspective on this fun family event.

Now, it’s considered normal to wear matching t-shirts or PJ’s to this event. So, we decided to go with matching PJ’s. They were certainly a hit and helped us get into the festive Disney holiday spirit. I highly recommend planning your fashion well in advance to find the perfect look for your family!

At this event, you’ll experience diminished crowds (though it was more crowded than I remember), a castle lighting with Elsa, Anna, Oaf and Kristoff, 2 parades (same parade, different times) where you can see your favorite Disney characters AND Santa, fireworks, free snacks and drinks (different options at each stop), snow falling on Main Street and so much more. Be sure to research all of your options ahead of time to ensure you maximize your opportunities and have a plan!

While we caught a great spot for the castle lighting, we go trapped near Splash Mountain and missed out on a good spot for the parade. We saw guests grabbing their spots 30-45 minutes ahead of time, so plan accordingly.

The rest of the festivities just don’t disappoint. We highly recommend this event for your family (just be sure to take naps to hold out until the end of the night)!

Below, check out our Top 5 Suggestions for attending this event:

  1. You can arrive at 4 PM (even though the event doesn’t begin until 7 PM). Maximize your time in the park and arrive early!
  2. Dress in festive fashion. Plan ahead and get in the spirit with some fun t-shirts or PJ’s.
  3. Take advantage of the diminished wait times on rides. We still experienced 30 minute lines, but on rides that can see 60+ minute waits at normal times.
  4. Don’t miss the castle lighting, the parade (and get a good seat), the free snacks and treats, or the fireworks. They make the event worthwhile and exciting!
  5. Don’t miss the photo opportunities! This was an image a friend of mine shared the very next night at the event. We saw the line for the photo and opted to bypass it. We had no idea it would be THIS great:

Don’t pass things by…there are fun family memories at every turn. (This photo is taken in Repunzel’s area next to It’s a Small World).

Enjoy Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas with your family. We hope you make some fun family memories with this annual special event!
