Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade At Animal Kingdom

Continuing on my quest to experience things that I have never seen before, I headed to Animal Kingdom to see Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade.

During the holiday season, November 10, 2011 to January 3, 2012, Mickey’s Jamming Jungle Parade gets infused with the spirit and fun of the holidays and is transformed into Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade.

Disney Characters have come for a holiday visit to Animal Kingdom, and star in this 15 minute parade that makes a large loop around the park that launches from the Tusker House Gate in Harambe. The parade time does vary, so make sure that you check the times guide for when it begins!

We got an excellent spot in front of Tusker House, and settled in just in time for the fun to begin.

I honestly was expecting a few cheesy touches, but I was surprised at just how much detail and holiday cheer was infused into the parade!

The over-lay is extremely well done, and I reveled in the little touches!!! Walking Characters were adorned with holiday garb, and holiday details were added to each float.

I really hope that you enjoy this look at Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade as much as I did!!!!

Holiday Resort Hopping – Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort And Spa

This year I thought it would be fun to go Holiday Resort Hopping, since it was something that we had always wanted to do during our holiday visits but could never find the time.

I thought I would start with Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, because we ran through it last year and I wanted to take a better look at the decorations throughout the Main Building.

Nothing says Christmas at the Grand Floridian like the smell of gingerbread that hits you as soon as the doors to the lobby open! I found so many little details on the super-sized gingerbread Victorian House that I missed last year!!!

I am in LOVE with the all little period details and opulence of the trees and wreaths spread throughout the hallways and walls of the building.

I hope you enjoy some of my favorite pictures of the decorations.

Prep & Landing Is SOOOOO Tinsel on DVD!!!

When Prep & Landing debuted in 2009 on ABC, I absolutely loved it and it quickly became a holiday family favorite!!! And it was really tinsel to get the DVD to review!!!

Prep & Landing is an adorable holiday story about a high-tech team of elves who ensure homes around the world are properly prepared for their visit from Santa. After working for a tireless 227 years, an elf named Wayne (voiced by Dave Foley) is upset when he doesn’t receive an expected promotion. Instead he is partnered with an idealistic rookie elf named Lanny (voiced by Derek Richardson) to execute a special Christmas Eve mission. While on their journey, Wayne and Lanny encounter unexpected challenges that push them to their limits and ultimately threaten Christmas for children around the world. But in the end, these two elves work together to guide Santa through a raging snowstorm in order to save Christmas.

The bonus shorts included on the DVD are really funny!!!

The Prep & Landing Stocking Stuffer Shorts were my favorites!!!! In “Operation Secret Santa” lead elves Lanny and Wayne are sent on a special assignment by Mrs. Clause (voiced by Betty White) into Santa’s Office. And in “Tiny’s Big Adventure” Tiny is the assistant to Magee in the North Pole Christmas Eve Command Center is trying to make a pot of coffee and makes quite a mess!

Also the Prep & Landing Kringle Academy Training Videos  and North Pole Commercials were really entertaining!!!!

We all love Prep & Landing, and to help spread the Christmas cheer I’ll be giving away a copy of the movie and shorts on DVD!!!
