Give the gift of light and magic this Christmas with Disney inspired lantern’s from Darlene’s Treasure Shop.  These adorable table top lanterns provide a soft magical glow that will bring shimmery hope and peace to any room.  Hang them on the Christmas tree for an extra festive touch.  The traditional gold lantern is adorned on all six sides with the silouhette of a Disney character and selected Disney scenes from Pixar, Marvel, Disney Cruise Line, Star Wars, or Disney Princess.   Have another Disney theme in mind?  Darlene would be be thrilled to bring light to your inspriation.  I absolutley adore the storyline of the Snow White inspired lantern.  It is embellished with images from key points of this fan favorite animation.

 

The lantern’s measure approximately 2.25″ D x 4.5″ H and come equipped with a hang tag and a replaceable battery.  Illuminate and brighten the image with the simple slide switch found on the bottom of the plastic lantern.  Darlene’s Treasure Shop is still  taking orders for Christmas.  

Place your order by December 18, 2016 for guaranteed Christmas delivery.  

May the light of the season shine bright all year round!

Here are just a few of my favorite Disney Christmas Traditions that you must experience this season.  Make sure to bring your family to share all the Christmas magic with!

EPCOT:

Candlelight Processional:

“A spectacular and wondrous pageantry that unites people from around the globe.

Spellbound audiences will experience pure holiday magic as special guest stars recount the biblical tale of Christmas interwoven with rich orchestral music and song that’s nothing short of heaven sent. An American Sign Language interpreter will translate on stage so hearing-impaired.” (Disney, 2016)

Candlelight Processional, November 26, 2016; Narrated by Steven Curtis Chapman

Holidays Around the World:

“Discover a festival like no other, featuring the joyous holiday traditions of our 11 World Showcase nations. Holidays Around the World surrounds you in the wondrous sights, sounds and flavors of the season as celebrated by cultures near and far.” (Disney, 2016)

The most delectable house is viewable in the lobby of the Grand Floridian.  It takes about 2 months to build and it smells so sweet!

 

Magic Kingdom:

New Frozen Ride- Second longest wait time in Walt Disney World History!

13423401_512245538975977_1462168981_n(1)It was nearly 100 degrees on the second official day of summer here in Florida, but with the opening of the NEW Frozen Ever After ride in Epcot it seems things are about to get a whole lot cooler around here.   The highly anticipated Frozen ride packed in guests from all over the world making this the second longest wait time ever recorded at Walt Disney World.   Wait times on opening day were as long as 300 minutes only an hour after the park opened and wrapped all the way around the world showcase.  Soarin’ beats this with a standby wait time recorded at 305 minutes on New Years Eve a few years back.  (Touring Plans) An unnamed cast member informed guests that wait times were actually longer for Frozen Ever After, but showed 300 minutes because that was the highest number they can display on the wait board.  Sadly, I was not one of the lucky first time riders…I was actually stuck in an office working. Had I been off I would have been in line waiting at park opening just so I could go down in history as an opening day rider.  I do have a Fast Pass to ride in July!  Which means that I can play it cool and enjoy less then normal wait times for other attractions.  Seriously, with everyone in Norway or somewhere in the world showcase waiting on line for the new attraction, even Test Track has less then a 20 minute wait!

Also new in Norway character meet and greets with Ana and Elsa!

Promise to share my Frozen Ever After experience at the end of July when I enter the wintery world of Frozen for the first time!

My children are attempting to ride Frozen Ever After today with my super awesome sister and her family.

At 8:26am this is the wait to get into the park…day two of Frozen Ever After! (pic courtesy of my super awesome sister who is waiting to get into the park!)13473371_1546736565633241_1967136670_n(1)
