“Melody Time,” a feature film released in 1948, included a musical segment called “Once Upon A Wintertime,” which tells the story of a young couple who take their holiday romance on a sleigh ride through the snow, ice skating on a local pond. After avoiding a near disaster on their journey, the two end their story with a sweet kiss back in their sleigh. 

“The ‘Once Upon a Wintertime’ characters love to enjoy everything the holiday season has to offer,” Ashley said. “I’d imagine they would love strolling around Epcot International Festival of the Holidays.”


  • What a holiday-time sweet Doodle, thanks Ashley and Jennifer! Love watching this segment during the holidays. I wonder where the two bunnies that accompany the couple might go in Epcot– the Land? That way the boy bunny can try impressing the girl bunny on Soarin’… Now I have that lovely melody playing in my mind the rest of this afternoon!
