Super cute! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:09PM
My favorite memory when I was little my family did Christmas early so they could take me and my sister to Disney for Christmas! It was the first time to see it all lite up. It's actually my favorite memory of all my trips. Thanks for the awesome RAK! Please add me ๐Ÿ˜„ - disfansince97  71.0 #92 1:35PM
Love the Christmas early idea. I have been early in nov and got to do mvmcp but did not get a chance to see the lights which was sad, maybe one day - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 2:27PM
That so great! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:47PM
No Disney holiday memory as we have not gone to Disney at any other time but August. I did not grow up celebrating the holidays in Jamaica we were very poor. When we came to this country we did not celebrate either. When we went off to college my mom began cooking welcome home dinners. Anyway. When I got married I realize it was my home and I could celebrate any holiday I choose. Forgot to mention my hubby grow up Jehovah's witness's ( what a match ). Any way after my hubby went to Disney he fell in love with disney. I didn't have to work hard to convince him to join DVC Needless to say the Christmas store had lots of stuff and we began collecting our Disney ornaments in 2008. So Christmas is now a big deal for us and I'm proud to have started something great for my children. Sorry so long. - 5disneylovers  1203.7 #6 1:52PM
Aww that is a great story. Thank you for sharing. It is wonderful to share holidays with family no matter what your faith or heritage is. It just make family time so special and the memories are just so wonderful. - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 2:21PM
Oh 5DL, that is a beautiful story!! - mrsincredible  1339.5 #4 2:22PM

Thank you for sharing your story! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:11PM
I really don't have a Christmas related to disney but I love when I get to see my family in New Jersey. But a disney memory is when we got to spend my daughters birthday at a Disney cruise and then at Disney world it was a surprise the kids were not expecting. Please add me. - yessy  258.5 #37 2:18PM
Great story and a Disney surprise is a great memory. Love Disney surprises! - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 6:11PM
Really nice! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:14PM
My favorite Disney Christmas memory was doing the Gingerbread Challenge last year. I am sad I can't make that a tradition every year. If I could, I would in a heartbeat! Amazing RAK Gayle, thank you!! ๐Ÿ˜˜ - mrsincredible  1339.5 #4 2:20PM
I loved that you took us all on your adventure with you. So wish I was there with you - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 2:29PM
Me too!! - mrsincredible  1339.5 #4 5:40PM
Sounds so fun! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:15PM
My favorite Disney holiday memory was the year we went Disneyland in December. I loved seeing all the decorations and how they were true to each land's theme! Toontown & NOS were my favorites. I loved Small World Holiday (much better than the original). I remember getting our picture taken with Santa at the DL Hotel. But, my favorite memory was when it snowed on Main Street! Please add me for goofygal. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1455.6 #3 2:21PM
This sounds so exciting. I really want to go to Disney land one day but my dilemma would be do I go during Halloween or Christmas - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 2:32PM
Thank you. - jacdanfan  12371.4 #6 5:26PM
Christmas, Haunted Mansion Holiday is still up! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1455.6 #3 6:30PM
I love reading about your Christmas memory! You are so sweet to add for me. Thank you! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:19PM
My favorite WDW Christmas memory is during my 1st Trip to WDW (Nov2011, after my birthday). It was kinda last minute trip, but i did schedule it during the first week of Christmas decor... I AM SHOCKED TO SEE osborne family spectacle of dancing lights and MSEP! Those lights are amazing!!! I celebrated two special moments (my late bday and early xmas). Thats why, if i will plan another wdw trip, it will be nov-dec time period! - otilegna  2803.9 #53 2:33AM
For Disneyland, i love Christmas too... And the candlelight processional and the parade with tin soldiers! (I just wish it will not be a special event soon) - otilegna  2803.9 #53 2:34AM
We went once during the first week if being able to see mvmcp. Loved see all the decorations but the Osborne lights didn't start yet๐Ÿ˜’ I guess I will have to wait till I retire to see those because that time of year is blocked out to vaca - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 6:08PM
Sounds great! Yes, the Osborne Lights are amazing! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:37PM
That year was just lucky. The first week of Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing lights... I just stand there in the middle! Went back a lot! - otilegna  2803.9 #53 7:13PM
In 1995,my daughter and 2 grandsons and I rode in the front of the monorail from our resort, the Wonderful Contemporary to the Christmas party at MK. We stayed until 1:00 a.m. My most magical Disney vacation ever. The boys were 3 1/2 and 7. - lghr  48.8 #111 6:33PM
Thank you for sharing that sounds like an amazing trip. I wish I could take my grandkids at Christmas ๐Ÿ˜ข dang work ! - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 5:48AM
It's hard to pick a favorite because we got our annual passes for Disneyland on Christmas Day (originally), but I think mine would be a couple of years ago. We decided that we would go to WDW on Thanksgiving. Yes, fly out ON Thanksgiving day. We had never considered any such thing before! It was AMAZING! We flew out Thanksgiving day and had Thanksgiving dinner at the Pop Century at about 10pm - just in time, before they had stopped serving for the day. We got to see all the Christmas decorations, Osborne Family Lights, resort Gingerbread houses - the works. It was a once in a lifetime special experience and I'm thankful to have done it with my wonderful husband and son. Please add me for 5disneylovers! Thank you for this great RAK! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:45PM
That is an amazing story! I would live to do that also. Thank you rot sharing. - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 5:50AM
The only thing dealing with Disney is our tradition to watch the Disney x-mas parade on tv.... Please add me - firestorm64rt  43.0 #119 7:39PM
We do that to! I plan breakfast and the opening if the presents around it. Nothing can interfere!๐Ÿ˜ƒthank you for sharing - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 5:52AM
I don't have any living family so about 12 years ago I made going to Disneyland for several days the first week of December my holiday tradition. I went by myself and had a blast every year. Then I became a DVC member and starting last year my holiday tradition moved to WDW. I love exploring the WDW parks and hope to someday know them as well as I know Disneyland . - chancesr  245.3 #1475 9:21PM
That is a great tradition it is wonderful to spend time with Disney as your family and share it all with us. Can't wait for your pictures from there this year. Thanks for sharing - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 5:55AM
My favorite memory. .for my birthday I was surprised by my family with a weekend at WDW. Caught me completely by surprise. And since my birthday is 2 weeks before Christmas I got to see sll the beautiful decorations and lights. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #20 7:11AM
I love Disney surprises. That sounds like an amazing one. Thanks for sharing - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 5:59AM
OMG! That would be amazing!!! My birthday is a week before Christmas! That is a dream of mine! ;0) - GoofysMyFav  5.7 #384 6:07AM
My favorite Disney Christmas memory was last Christmas. It was our first ever time seeing Christmas at Disney and we had planned to go to the Christmas party. We planned months in advance. We had been trying to have a baby for over a year with no luck, BUT about a week or so before we left, we got BIG news. It was a great memory to celebrate our dreams coming true, and Christmas! - elephanette  64.4 #4450 7:57AM
Aww that is so special what a great way to celebrate. Congrats on your little one now you can share your magic with the baby๐Ÿ˜ƒ - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 6:02AM
We haven't been to Disney at Christmas time, but it is definitely on my bucket list! I would say my favorite Christmas memory would be this past year when I gave all my family the tees that MrsI made for me. It was so cute to see their faces and watch them put them on. It was really a special time, knowing someone had especially made them for my family. - ncjal  319.2 #28 2:30PM
Forgot to say, Thank you for this great RAK!! - ncjal  319.2 #28 2:30PM
Awwwww, that's so nice!! ๐Ÿ˜˜ - mrsincredible  1339.5 #4 2:33PM
Aww such fun rewarding memories. - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 2:35PM
Nice! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:20PM
Nice - 5disneylovers  1203.7 #6 6:35PM
The only Disney Christmas memory I have is buying a ton of Disney ornaments whenwe go in the fall. My daughter aand I have started that new tradition and we almost have a full tree now! I also buy them from the website when they do sales! great rak! - girlonfire  54.1 #106 8:14PM
One of the same memories I have. I love shopping in the Christmas store. - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 6:06PM
I love this ornament. I saw it in the book Saturday. The Brave Little Taylor is my all time favorite Mickey Mouse cartoon! My favorite Disney memory would be in December 2010. We took my daughter to WDW to experience the Christmas lights and festivities. The trip was wonderful but one of my best memories is seeing her face light up when it started snowing on Main Street during the parade at Mickey's Christmas Party. It was priceless!!! - leveretttltl  89.6 #79 6:38AM
Omg that was my favorite part too and I was like a little kid. I have a picture of me just sitting in the ground in front if Casey's waiting for my husband to come back with cocoa and cookies as we wait for the parade. Thanks for sharing your magic - mmddgp  1179.3 #7 5:58AM
