Holidays Without Disney? No Way! – Holiday Traditions

First & foremost, I'm MOM! I have a Disney soul...am a DVC & D23 member, and a wannabe castmember. Magic seeker for life! I vacationed almost exclusively at WDW with my family as an adult and in the last couple years picked up my family to move there/here. And that’s where I am now…in Cinderella’s backyard with my family. I’m very happy to be a Disney local, at last.


 

Traditions – they are what make your holidays and events special. Adding Disney to those traditions can make your holidays even more magical. Even if you have a tradition that has been passed down for generations, it’s never too late to add a few new fun ones! This month, we will highlight some of our personal family traditions that show off our Disney side. Want to share yours as well?

Disney is a big part of my everyday life, so it only makes sense that it would also be a big part of my family’s holiday traditions. In our home, seasonal decorating and gift-giving have strong ties to Disney.
We adorn our Christmas tree with numerous Disney ornaments. I purchase one or two new ones each season, so our tree becomes more and more Disney-saturated each year. Our holiday decorating also includes a big Mickey wreath, Tinker Bell tree topper and several Disney plushes.
Decorations
Disney greeting cards are another holiday tradition here. I LOVE to purchase a new box of Christmas cards each year, and always keep one of the cards for myself. I have a nice set of reproduction retro Disney cards that I include in my Disney Christmas card collection.

Disney shopping is yet another part of my holiday tradition. I do a lot of my Christmas shopping at Downtown Disney and Epcot. It’s my chance to grab items that I’ve had my eye on all year and I really enjoy sending unique Disney gifts to my family and friends up north.
Jammies
One final Disney tradition for my family includes several trips to the parks and resorts to see all the decorations there. It’s an insanely busy time of year to visit, but all the hubbub is just another festive part of the holiday madness ambience.

I just can’t imagine the holidays without Disney. Can you?
