A Most Magical Christmas Vacation!

HOLIDAYS AT THE DISNEYLAND RESORT (ANAHEIM, Calif.) – The Disneyland Resort is a magical place for creating holiday memories with family and friends. Holidays at the Disneyland Resort will run from Nov. 10, 2016, through Jan 8, 2017, with the new “Festival of Holidays” and new “World of Color–Season of Light,” plus guest favorites “it’s a small world” and Haunted Mansion Holiday. Glistening Christmas trees and beautiful seasonal décor adorn the entire Disneyland Resort, and “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade is performed daily. (Paul Hiffmeyer/Disneyland Resort)

It’s been a stressful couple of months. We’ve spent a lot of time preparing our townhouse for sale and then showing it to multiple people a day. Thankfully, we had multiple offers within the first week. We’ve accepted one and are now waiting for subjects to be removed. Fingers crossed and prayers sent up that it all goes through!

Because there will be a bit of time between when we have to move out of this place and before our new home will be ready, we’ll be crashing at my parents place for a few weeks. It also means I won’t be able to decorate my home for Christmas this year, which was hard for me to comprehend.

Christmas is my absolute favourite season! The light, the music, the traditions – It’s all good in my books! I’ve struggled with the fact that we won’t be in our current home and/or barely in our new one. Most likely we’ll be moving in over the week between Christmas and New Years.

I had a brilliant idea! I’ve always wanted to experience a Disney Christmas, but the timing has never worked out. As it would happen, we have a credit to fly with West Jet. There’s also an amazing 25% off deal for Canadians buying Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort Park tickets. Add that together with a fantastic hotel deal, and you’ve got yourself an affordable Disney Vacation (even with our crappy dollar!)

What does Disneyland during the holiday season look like? According to what I’ve seen, it means extra tasty treats, Christmas overlays for rides like It’s a Small World and Jungle Cruise, and parades with dancing ballerina’s and skating rinks! It means jingle bells, Santa Claus, and characters in glamorous attire! It also means a complete transformation of Main Street, USA, Sleeping Beauty Castle, and Cars Land.

The rest? I guess I’ll have to find out and let you know 😉

Cannot wait to fill you in on more details as they come together!
