The Realist’s Take

Cozy up with a hot cocoa, folks – Mickey and co are decking the hallways of the World Disney World Resort with boughs of Hollywood glitz, Frozen magic, and gingerbread houses the size of your kindergarten dreams. Bring your Yuletide spirit and they will provide the star-studded variety shows, global holiday flavors, and a snow shed-load of merry merchandise. But remember, lurking in the corner of this festive paradise is the stark reality – someone is painstakingly hanging nine miles of garland! If that isn’t dedication bordering on Christmas obsession, we don’t know what is. So, bottoms up to the magic, the beauty, and the sheer insanity of Disney’s holiday preparations. Here’s hoping the Disney Holiday Services team has a magical army of elves — and a plentiful stock of footrests.
