Tuesday’s Tip- Celebrate World Party Day at Epcot

Hi All!  As you may have read in some previous posts I’ve been very intrigued by unique and obscure holidays lately, so I’m highlighting some of these holidays and how they relate to my favorite place- Walt Disney World!!!!

So today is “World Party Day!” If I could choose a place to celebrate today it would definitely be Epcot at Walt Disney World!  I mean where else can you visit eleven countries in one afternoon?


Not only can you visit the countries and experience the culture of Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, United States, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom, and Canada, but you can end your day by celebrating Disney style with a real world party; Illuminations! If you’ve never experienced Illuminations you need to!  It an incredible spectacle of fireworks, pyrotechnics, and beauty.

Below is a time lapse that we did of Illuminations a few trips ago 🙂  Enjoy and party and enjoy the world today!

Christmas Time is Here…

Yes Halloween was only 3 days ago, but the holiday season has come to Walt Disney World!

One of the most amazing Christmas displays that Disney puts up is the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights at Hollywood Studios.  Today was the soft opening of the display (photos from Sharon Perkins- Charming Travels LLC).

This display is absolutely incredible and has run for 20 years, this will be its last.





I only wish I would have had the chance to see it!!!  I do leave for Disneyland in 9 days and am hoping to see some decor along with their awesome 60 year celebration!

If you’re interested in planning your own Disney vacation to see the Spectacle of Lights before they’re gone, be sure to contact Charming Travels LLC (info@charmingtravelsllc.com)

My Disney Holiday Tradition

Hello Mouskaholics!  I apologize that I haven’t blogged lately!  It is certainly NOT because I haven’t been thinking about Disney… I still love Disney and I love sharing my Disney experiences, life has just been on the busy side lately.

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite Disney traditions that my husband and I have.  While we have never been to the Disney parks at Christmas time (trust me, it’s on my bucket list!), that doesn’t mean that we don’t incorporate Disney into our personal Christmas traditions!  The living room in our home is painted with two maroon walls, and two white walls.  The decor in the room is all black and white photos, and silver trims.  When we put up our first Christmas tree as a married couple we decided that the tree should match the room, so our tree is decked out with ornaments that are maroon, black, white, and silver.  We started with a lot of generic ornaments and in the past seven years we’ve added a lot of unique ornaments to the collection.  Our favorite ornaments that we’ve acquired are the ones that we’ve purchased on our Disney trips!

Even though we’ve never been to the parks at Christmas, there is a special store located in Downtown Disney called “Disney’s Days of Christmas.”

It is open year round and you can shop for Christmas specialty items on any trip!  We make it a point to stop at this store on each trip and add a new ornament to our collection.  While there are MANY beautiful ornaments in the shop we are quite selective as we search each year for the perfect ornament to fit the theming of our tree.  The ornaments that we’ve collected over the past 7 trips are all unique.  Usually we go for a Mickey ornament, but on our most recent trip my husband specifically wanted a Jack Skellington ornament.   So now our tree has 6 Mickey’s and 1 Jack 🙂
