Christmas in The Magic Kingdom
Cinderella’s Castle at Walt Disney World’s
Welcome to our Little Magic Kingdom Homage
Living here in Florida, just less than 2 hours away from Orlando, we can’t help but be big Disney fans as we visit the parks quite frequently, especially around the holidays.
Besides, who didn’t grow up loving the Disney movies at the theater and on t.v.?
And who isn’t fond of Mickey Mouse?
I found some Disney tins at a local store and I just made the sugar cookies using a basic recipe. Then adding some royal icing and some lovely dragees. I also included the Mickey Mouse ears cookie cutter along with the gift.

Broad Street and Cinderella’s Castle
One reason that I love to go to the Magic Kingdom during the holidays is because I know that the park will be decorated quite grand, especially Cinderella’s Castle. A Cinderella Christmas does get me into the spirit of things. I always look for a few special souvenirs that I can only find at the Disney parks. I always take lots of photos and I just enjoy the experience of the fairy tale in the happiest place on Earth. (Sometimes.)
All the lovely Christmas decorations that are everywhere.
The start of Christmas for me.
All the Decorations are Up
Christmas Touches Here and There
I do love Christmas Shopping Here
(Especially when I have some little princess’s to buy for.)

The Grand Balcony
of Cinderella’s Castle
This harkens back to my childhood, but isn’t that what Christmas is supposed to do?
So very beautiful!
The castle is actually fashioned after an old castle in Germany.

Warning: There are NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES at The Magic Kingdom!! Just my public service announcement. Your very welcome on the head’s up! You’ll have to make merry some place else.
Belle’s Castle at Night
We ended the night perfectly with a funnel cake at Sleepy Hollow.
(FYI: The story and legend of Sleepy Hollow is American’s only fairy tale, but I will talk about that another time.)
The Nightly Disney Parade
Me, eating a delicious funnel cake. Gordon and I did share it. I just had a few bites but boy! Is it great!
Be sure to stop by Sleepy Hollow and try one for yourself.
You will thank us for it!
I did want to end with a bit of advice about touring any of the Disney parks.
Carry The Light Stuff With You
When we do the Disney parks we rent a locker. In that locker we keep our jackets, hats, gloves, scarves, etc. (When it is cold). Also some of our edible things and some water. Whatever purchases that you make during the park you can pick up at the package pick up area near the front entrance before you leave. Just tell the cashier that you would like to pick up your package later on and they will give you a form to fill out with your name, address, and phone number. That way you don’t have to carry them around with you all day. There is no charge for this service. There is a charge for a locker for all day. I think it was about $20.00. But if you give them back the keys at the end of the day you will get $10.00 back.
It couldn’t be any easier.
That way your hands are more free to enjoy the day and to take lots of photos.
Now I am all ready for my Disney Christmas. I could not be more in the mood than I am right now.
