Christmas at Disney in pictures

Having just returned home after five nights at Walt Disney World, I’m busy playing catch up with real life and its associated piles of laundry.  I did, however, want to share some instagram photos with you.  I was sans family on this trip–acting as a mentor during training weekend for the new members of the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  Going it alone always gives me the chance to really slow down and take note of the details I might otherwise miss.  That is always a treat, but especially during Christmas.  Here are a few photos I snapped during the week.  Enjoy!

The grey stuff at the new Be Our Guest Restaurant - it really was delicious!
Cinderella Castle draped in icicles -- a beautiful sight!

It was an unforgettable weekend.  Truly.  I can’t wait for you to meet the new Walt Disney World Moms Panel Moms in January.  They’re an awesome group!  Until then, the alumni moms are happy to answer your vacation planning questions.  Visit us at

  1. Looks like a fabulous trip. I’m going to Candlelight at Disneyland tomorrow. It gets me in the Christmas spirit every year. Still hoping they start a Disneyland Moms panel.

    1. Did you know, Susan, that the Walt Disney World Moms Panel has two Disneyland specialists? Disneyland doesn’t have its own panel, but it does have moms that represent it on the WDW Moms panel. You should apply next year!

  2. I kept looking for you as we walked around the parks! We just got back yesterday from our cruise and everyone loved our Hot Chocolate Mix-Ins! We had extras and passed them out to several crew members who went above and beyond for us, as well as our elementary school teachers, youth minister and the mail lady. Thanks so much for the great idea!

    1. I think it’s best described as a cookies and cream mousse. In any case, it’s delicious. Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes ;)

  3. P.S. I forgot to ask this afternoon. Did you hear anything about if Disney World will be hosting a Social Media Moms Celebration in 2013?
