Magical Blogorail - Disney Holiday Traditions



Welcome to those of you joining me from Focused On The Magic and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the Final stop on our Magical Blogorail.


It wouldn't be Christmas at the Anderson's without our Disney Christmas tree.  It was started 20 years ago when Ashley was just 4 years old.  I still use some of the original ornaments, but some have also moved on to Kentucky with Ashley, Eric and Lexi.  It's time for us to start a collection for Lexi when she grows up so that the tradition can live on for another generation. Here are just a few random shots of ornaments on this year's tree.




Another family tradition for us is watching Disney Christmas movies. My personal two favorites are Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas and Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas.  Of course, you have to have hot chocolate from your favorite Disney mug while you watch.

Last, but not least presents are wrapped in Disney paper.  Here are a couple under the tree this year.


I would love to hear all of your Disney Christmas traditions, just leave a comment below.

Thank you for joining Magical Blogorail Orange this month. Our next loop will be Tuesday, January 17th with an all new theme.

  1. Thanks for swapping loops with me this month, Donna Kay! Love the ornaments on your tree. We always have some Disney paper to wrap gifts in too. In fact, this year, Ian's are wrapped in Mickey paper, Gracie's in Tinkerbell, and Ashley's in Disney princesses. :)

  2. No problem at all Heidi! Wrapping everyone's gifts in different paper is a great idea! I hadn't thought of that!!

  4. Thanks Deb!! I started getting more of the Mickey Icon ornaments a few years ago, my husband likes those best (helps him tolerate my Disney tree a little better). If you find Grumpy paper let me know, I could use some for my DH too...

  6. I have that same Scrooge McDuck ornament and the Sleeping Beauty one! We have a Disney tree too. I have collected so many ornaments over the years, that I have had to upgrade to a 7.5 tree just for Disney and 9.5 foot tree for my "regular" ornaments. Santa also wraps the kids' gifts in Disney paper. Each child gets their own pattern. It is so fun to see their faces when they see all the Disney gifts under the tree! :-)

  8. Donna- I am very impressed that you let your kids take the treasured ornaments out of THE HOUSE!! I may need some serious therapy before I can "let go"! :D
