I have always wanted to travel to Walt Disney World for the holidays. It’s can be easy for some to do, but for our family we just can’t make it down during that time of year. My stepson has split homes, and now my foster daughter is always headed to her moms during holidays and weekends. This can make it tough to make arrange a trip to Walt Disney World. Most of the time, since I can remember, I have gone during spring and summer months.
I love seeing the Pictures others take of Walt Disney World during the holiday season. Everything is lit up and bright on Main Street USA, and the castle looks so beautiful (shown on left). I get so excited and wish I could be there to see the castle up close. Maybe one of these days I will get my chance. But for now, I enjoy having a Disney Christmas at home. For years I have collected many Disney ornaments, wreaths, lights, statues, and so on. Every year I feel more of the Disney magic in my home, and it helps with the “Disney Blues”. I have gone online again this year to hunt down great Disney holiday finds for myself, and share them with other Disney fans.
Of course I enjoy starting at the holiday section of disneystore.com. At this site you will find Disney holiday decor, holiday ornaments, holiday clothes, top Disney toys, and great ideas for girls, boys, and adults. Everything on this site has to do with Disney, and in this section everything has to do with Disney Holidays! In the holiday decor section there are different departments, such as Department 56, Jim Shore, tree skirts and toppers, stockings, and tableware.
This year I have picked out a few new items to add to my Disney collection for the Disney Parks holiday section. In the section you can get items sold in Disney Parks right online. I am so happy that they added this to the Disney Store, because if you can’t get to WDW you can still bring home some of the magic this way! In this section I have ordered the Winter Glass Mini Mickey Mouse Holiday Ornaments — 8-Pc. Set for $22.95 (shown on right). These ornaments are beautiful and are going to look wonderful on our Disney family Christmas tree. Along side these ornaments I have also purchased the Peppermint Mickey Mouse Holiday Lights — 10-Pc. Set for $19.95, to bring some Disney peppermint glow to the house.
Now, if you are looking for items to pick up around your area, Wal-Mart has a new Disney Christmas collection. During my latest trip to the store I saw a row of Disney Mickey and Minnie stockings, ornaments, outside statues, and musical lights. Everything seemed reasonably priced. Wal-Mart also had a really awesome Tinker Bell holiday section, and Cars section too. Also, during a stop at Lowe’s I found that they were carrying Disney Mickey holiday items too. They have statues and snow globes of Mickey and the Disney gang. Also there was an outside Mickey Mouse dressed as Santa Claus, which lights up. It was an awesome outside item.
Now speaking of outdoor Disney holiday light-ups, I have found some wonderful items online that I am so excited to share with everyone. I don’t live near a Kmart, but online I found a Disney Set of 4 Christmas Light Snow Pathway Markers – Mickey Ears for $27.99 on their site. I have also gone to The Bradford Exchange Online where there are lots of Disney holiday items to see for indoors and outdoors. Here though, most items are on the expensive side, but made so beautifully. I love their Illuminated Rotating Disney Tree Topper which is marked at $99.99. The best part of the topper, is that it circles the tree when you turn on the switch!
I have also looked around amazon.com. Here I found some great outside Disney Yard Art. My favorite is the Disney Minnie and Mickey Mouse In Sleigh Lighted Christmas Yard Art,which is marked $89.99. This has 150 lights and is 39 inches high! There is also the Mickey Mouse With Santa Hat Lighted Christmas Yard Art marked at $99.99, and Disney Mickey Mouse Holographic Lighted Christmas Wreath Yard Art priced at $66.99. I have even see a Yard Art of Mickey With a Snowman that was priced around $90.00. If you are a Pooh fan there is a Disney Winnie the Pooh Lighted Christmas Wreath Yard Art that is priced at $59.99. All of them are great for some Holiday Disney Magic at your house!
I hope this helps those that would like to bring some of the Disney Holiday Magic to their home for this holiday season. Maybe someday we (the Disney Fans that haven’t gone during Christmas season) will all get a chance to see Cinderella’s Castle up close, lit up, at Magic Kingdom during Christmas. For now I am enjoying my Christmas at home, and bringing more of the magic of Disney home with each passing year. Hope everyone has a safe and fun Disney Holiday Season!
