Spreading A Little Christmas Cheer At Walt Disney World
Living near Walt Disney World brings the special ability to be at the theme parks during Christmas time. As my family and I were planning our holiday activities I began to think of all the people who would be working Christmas Eve and Christmas Day… especially the cast members! If you have ever visited one of the Disney Parks during Christmas you know how magical it is and how all the extra hours you can play make it even more special. What you may forget is that cast members are working hard to bring that magic and many have to work extra hours and days to make the “show” a success. So my family decided we would visit the Disney Parks on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and hand out candy canes just to say thank you to the cast members. No rides, no snacks, just thank you and Merry Christmas!
Oh and a little side note…if you plan to visit any Disney Park on Christmas Day get there EARLY! By 10am the crowds were getting impossible and as we left Magic Kingdom at 11am this was the line being turned away at the gate.
I hope you and your family had a Merry Christmas and may your New Year be blessed!
