Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way….
Oh wait, it’s July. I’m about five months too early aren’t I? Well, I’ve been confused about a lot of things today. With my birthday last week and the 4th bringing a long weekend, I completely forgot it was Tuesday and not Monday, which just might be the reason that this post is coming so late today…
But since I have already wished you a Merry Christmas, lets pull on our Santa caps and snow boots and sing a round of Feliz Navidad because Elrods Go Disney is celebrating Christmas in July every Tuesday this month!
[Imagine a confetti cannon erupting here, with big white snowflake confetti swirling around you while Christmas carols blare through the air! It’s a party!]
Christmas is no little thing in the Elrod house, but Walt Disney World of course puts our meager “holiday spirit” to shame. Did you know that Disney has a full-time staff that works year round to make sure that Disney is the most magical place on Earth at Christmastime? It’s true, and here are some other Christmas Disney fun facts that may surprise you:
♦ It takes 150 tractor-trailer truckloads of decorations to decorate all of the Disney property resorts, theme parks, water parks, Downtown Disney and more!
♦ Over seven million lights are hung throughout Walt Disney World for the holiday season!
♦ 11.3 miles of garland grace the property of Walt Disney World every year!
♦ More than 300,000 yards of ribbon and bows are draped over 1,360 Christmas trees!
♦ Over 800 holiday musicians, characters, storytellers, singers and entertainers perform daily throughout all four theme parks!
And that is only some of the work and decorations that make Christmas magic in Walt Disney World! There is simply no way that anyone could vacation in Walt Disney World during the holiday season and not get into the Christmas Spirit. I would venture to say that the person who couldn’t was a great big Scrooge McDuck!
I’m so excited about Christmas in July! Every Tuesday this month pop some sugar cookies in the oven, don your red and green or sliver and gold, and meet me back here to hear about all-things-Disney-Christmas; including info on yearly decorations and events that take place in Walt Disney World theme parks and resorts, Elrod WDW Tips on how to get the most out of your Disney holiday vacation, and more!
Until next week, I’ll be dreamin’ of a white Christmas and of sharing a Disney holiday vacation with YOU!
