    We are celebrating Christmas in the Happiest Place on Earth again this year and we are beyond excited. We arrive December 23 and are hoping to see the Christmas Parade at Magic Kingdom. Do you know if the Toy Soldiers are in the parade?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Brandi! I'm so excited for you to experience the Most Wonderful Time of the Year at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    While I have not yet been to the Walt Disney World Resort during the actual Christmas holiday, I have been there during the holiday season. There is just nothing like it. The decorations, the treats, the spirit of joy in the's just unforgettable. And yes, the theme parks are so festive and bright but don't sleep on the Disney Resorts Collection Hotels. They usually have beautiful trees and other special holiday touches. In fact, some typically have a gingerbread creation of some sort. In the past, we've seen gingerbread displays at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Yacht Club Resort, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Be sure to follow along with the Disney Parks Blog to see if these (and other) Disney Resorts Collection Hotels will feature any gingerbread displays during this holiday season!

    Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade at Magic Kingdom Park typically includes the iconic Toy Soldiers. While this parade is usually exclusive to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, the parade often performs during the day for all Guests in the park starting on December 23rd and continuing through the rest of the year. Just keep in mind that this is subject to change and won't be official until you see it on the calendar and/or announced on the Disney Parks Blog.

    Now a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just not complete during the holiday season if you don't visit Disney Springs. I absolutely love the Christmas Tree Stroll that is usually offered during this time of year. Each tree is exquisitely decorated and expertly themed. In the past, some of my favorite trees were the ones themed to the Haunted Mansion, Disney Vacation Club, and The Little Mermaid. Who knows what they'll come up with this year? After all, some trees last year interacted with your MagicBand+! How cool is that?

    Brandi, enjoy your holiday visit to the resort. If you have any other questions, please reach out again!

    May your days be merry and bright...and your food be Mickey-shaped,
