Create a Home for the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on December 12th, 2013 by Jean Volante, Manager of Dream Making, Disney Floral & Gifts/DEG


Everyone knows the song “There’s no place like home for the holidays.” The smell of Christmas cookies coming out of a warm oven, the family tree trimmed with tinsel and hundreds of lights, and of course the company of our loved ones.

And while that will always remain true, there is something overwhelmingly magical happening at Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays. The snow falling as you walk down Main Street, U.S.A., all of your favorite Disney pals wrapped in sweaters and scarves, and don’t even get me started on Cinderella Castle. If you haven’t been here, it’s really something to experience!

So, wouldn’t it be a dream come true if you could experience the comfort of Christmas at home with the magic of a Disney vacation all at once? Lucky for you my friend, Disney Floral & Gifts has found yet another way to fulfill your holiday wish list!

Now you can step into a Disney dream come true with our newest In-Room Celebration, Dreaming of a Disney Christmas! Each gift within the In-Room Celebration is designed to create a home-for-the-holidays ambiance that can be enjoyed by the whole family, created as if from Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

After a day of celebrating in the parks, return to your resort room to discover the gentle glow of luminaries, creating a soothing and relaxing environment, much like the one you would feel back home as the family is gathered around the fireplace waiting for Christmas tales to be told.

Speaking of Christmas tales, we’ve included a Toon Town Times Newspaper featuring your much anticipated arrival, packed with fun holiday stories and tips for enjoying your time in the parks.

And what would Christmas at home be without unwrapping presents? We’ve included plush toys for the little ones, each holding a present waiting to be unwrapped. I don’t want to spoil any surprises but just a hint; each present will really help capture the memories made on your stay.

Whether you’re leaving them out for Santa, or a treat to snack on before bed, we can’t forget baked cookies on Christmas! Not only did we include cookies, but also provided the works so the entire family can frost, sprinkle, and munch together.

After all the festivities when it’s time to tuck the little ones into bed, Minnie has included a special kiss goodnight with treats and even more surprises for little ones. Whether they’re dreaming or restlessly awaiting Santa’s arrival, you’ll rest easy knowing you have made your resort room that much homier.

This indoor winter wonderland not only includes an array of opportunities for the whole family to enjoy a holiday away from home, but a chance to start a new family tradition that will not be soon forgotten. You may be far away from home, but when celebrating the magic of Disney, you will always have a home here for the holidays!

I’m sure the Christmas celebration is nice, but with many thanks to you and the blog, we discovered the Mickey’s Halloween Spooktacular celebration and have ordered it the past couple of years. We also bring our own added touches so it does feel like a home away from home, so much so, that our decoration suitcases weigh more than our regular luggage. Our housekeeper was so impressed with our decor, she asked if she could take pictures because she had never seen a room that done up before. Hopefully, guests order the Christmas package, bring some of their own things and really have that “Christmas spirit” home away from home.

We are arriving January 2 with 11 family members. Two of them are celebrating their 9th Birthday . We were wondering if in the room where our twins will be staying if somehow we could have Birthday Balloons in there for when they open the door???The plan now is to check in and then head to Animal Kingdom to see the parade on the last day they are having it!! Thanks so much Marie
