Today is a day that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time!
About six months, actually, to be precise! 😮
It was around then when we had recently splurged and upgraded our Disney World annual passes to the kind that no longer have black out periods (plus a bunch of other stuff), so we thought that we should do something a little extra special and thus made plans to go over and spend Christmas Eve – a day normally off-limits to Florida Resident Annual Passholders – at the Magic Kingdom.
Frankly, I guess it’s a bit of an experiment, to say the least! We really have no idea what to expect for crowds – the closest comparison I have are Thanksgiving, which was busy but somewhat tolerable, and Easter, which was absolutely insane – but even if we don’t set foot on a single attraction, it’s really more the atmosphere that we’re going for today. Rumor has it that a bunch of the special holiday features from Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party become part of the park’s normal operating schedule now through the end of the year, so I’m really looking forward to seeing the Christmas parade, Holiday Wishes, and possibly even a little snow on Main Street USA!
Did I mention that to make our day even super-duper extra special, we’ve also got dinner reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table, the most in-demand restaurant in the park?!
Should make for a Christmas Eve to remember…
