The Perfect Christmas Resort Hopping Route at Walt Disney World

For a budget friendly way to enjoy the holidays I recommend hotel hopping at the major Walt Disney World resorts. It’s something I tried for the first time a few years ago with OutdoorsyDiva and it’s FREE!

2015 Epcot Candlelight Processional Packages Now On Sale

The Epcot Candlelight Processional is one of my favorite Theme Park Christmas traditions to do at Walt Disney World. Each guest at Epcot is entertained with the jubilant reciting of the divine holiday story presented in true Disney fashion. The story is usually told by celebrity narrators such as Neil Patrick Harris and Whoopi Goldberg; accompanied with a 50-piece orchestra and a magnificent mass choir.

Free Christmas at Disney World

Happy Holidays Hipsters!

There’s nothing like the holiday season. Rather it’s sitting cozily next to a fireplace with family or feeling the spirit of Christmas while walking around the Walt Disney World onsite hotels. Although I love both activities, I think you’d probably guess that the latter has become my new holiday tradition. A few years ago I discovered this new way of enjoying a free Christmas at Disney World. When I’d set out to do a post to help my fellow ThemeParkHipsters save on theme park holiday fun, I had no idea I’d discover how wonderful AND free a Disney holiday experience could be.

During this yuletide season Disney traditionally takes gingerbread house building to a new height, making Walt Disney World the premiere holiday must do for all things merry! Due to Frozen record breaking success, one would expect the Norwegian fairy tale to bring its artic chill across the parks.

Take a look at the amazing time-lapse video below of the all-new Gingerbread Holiday Ice Castle at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, inspired by the film. The 17-foot-tall masterpiece is visible from the monorail as guests head to and from Magic Kingdom Park. The Frozen gingerbread castle took months to bake and five days to build. It is adorn with sugar snowflakes, gingerbread shingles and chocolate-coated trees with Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and more amongst the sugary creation.
