Disney at Christmas

Disney at Christmas is one of the great things about living in Orlando. We have gone to Disney three times in the past week! I love Disney at Christmas, and this year was no exception.

Animal Kingdom Christmas Tree

First we went to the Spirit of Aloha dinner show at the Polynesian resort with my coworkers for our office Christmas party. It was a fantastic show (especially the Samoan fire dancing), the food was really yummy, and we just had a great time with friends. There was lots of laughter, which made it extra fun.

Other than the fire twirling, another highlight in the show was when Zane got chosen to participate. He shook his tail feathers and even incorporated some Macarena moves.


A couple days later, we met Zane's family at Downtown Disney to eat at Raglan Road. This was our second annual Christmastime dinner there, and the girls LOVED the show. Daisy was stomping and dancing in the dining room, while the Irish step-dancers clogged on stage. They were fantastic.

Daisy's cousin captivated by the dancing. 

And, oh - my - goodness! Have you had their bread pudding? I'm not usually a fan of bread pudding, but you HAVE to try it at Raglan Road. The vanilla cream and caramel sauce combo is freakin' amazing.

Lastly, we took Daisy to Animal Kingdom today. She's really into animals right now, so we chose to use our free tickets there this year.

It was a gorgeous day, not too hot or cold. Daisy liked the animals on the safari ("girass!" (giraffe)) and the Lion King show ("rahr!"). She fell asleep right before the Finding Nemo show started, which was good, because she needed a nap, but kind of sad, because it was an incredible show. That was my favorite part of the park. Wow. It was amazing. It was better than a Broadway show and only lasted 40 minutes. 

In true toddler/baby fashion, she was equally entertained by petting sheep as she was by playing with the leaves on a bush. She wanted to sit on every bench in the park, and only let Daddy carry her if I was holding her hand too. 

By the time the park closed at 6pm, we were all wiped out. We picked up a Christmas dumbo stuffed animal ("Dummo") for our Christmas toy collection and headed home, our Disney holiday 2013 shenanigans complete. 

Merry Disney Christmas!
