We stayed 7 days at Disney’s Riviera Resort and toured all the parks, twice. The weather was unusually warm, which meant we didn’t need to bundle up and even had some time at the pool!
Some highlights include:
- Met a lot of new characters: Marry Poppins, Snow White, Lilo & Stitch, Joy, and Vanellope von Schweetz. It was great to see so many new characters out and about
- Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom was just ‘OK’. It was too crowded and we felt like we had to hurry around to see and do all the things. We felt like Extended Evening Theme Park Hours at Magic Kingdom was much better, there were hardly any people at the park, so we were able to relax and ride all the things.
- The Recreation Cast Members at Riviera went above and beyond to make our kids feel special at every opportunity.
I brought along my Sony a7R IVA and my new Tamron 35-150mm and took hundreds of photos. Our December trip to Disney World was fantastic and we can’t wait to go back!
