Christmas at Walt Disney World Checklist

Christmas at Walt Disney World Checklist

This will be our first Christmas at Walt Disney World and we are so excited!!! We have been collecting everything we can to prepare for this most magical trip. Snow on Main Street? Cocoa and Cookies? Jingle Cruise? We cannot wait! We started designing Christmas shirts in July we’ve been so excited. So, to make sure we don’t miss a thing- we’ve made a list. 

First things first. If you, dear reader, have anything to share- tips, tricks, words of caution about Disney at Christmas- let us know.

We’re doing our best to prepare but of course also practicing our let-it-go philosophy of not too much planning. Here’s our quick Disney Christmas Checklist of what we know we’d like to experience so far.
