No rest for the weary, as we had another long park day during our weekend at Disney. We hit all our favorite rides, recharged with a dinner at Cinderella castle, and enjoyed Mickey’s Christmas party with more rides, shows, fireworks and a parade!
Christmas at Epcot
While we’ve enjoyed Disney at Halloween and springtime, we’ve never experienced it at Christmas. To rectify that, we had a fast-and-furious two days at the parks making most of the festive season.
