Christmas in Disneyland | Dance the Magic Parade

Is there anything better than Disneyland during Christmas time?! The answer, in case you didn’t know, is heck no! Sure, it might be a little crowded and maybe a little colder than some other months but there’s just nothing better than that nostalgic feeling of Disneyland mixed with the nostalgic feelings of Christmas. Pure Heaven. Take me back now!

Ok, to be clear, we had NO intention of going to Disneyland at Christmas time last year……until we got invited to be in Disney’s Dance the Magic Parade with my daughter’s dance studio, Xtreme Force Dance Company. Of course it was a no brainer! And although it was a little pricey, it was totally worth the experience. Best Disney trip ever. There’s always something so fulfilling to see such excitement and joy on your kid’s face, knowing they will have these amazing memories with them for a lifetime.

Since Ava was with her dance studio most of Saturday, Michael and I walked around Disneyland like two kids without parents doing whatever we wanted. Michael brought along his camera and took a ton of awesome pictures (edited by me with Kindred Presets, check them out because they are amazing!) which we’ve always wanted to do but it’s hard to lug around a camera and go on a bunch of rides but this ended up being a perfect opportunity capturing the beauty of Disneyland. He has quite the eye don’t you think??

… to plan our next Disney adventure!

The whole reason we came…….DISNEYLAND’S DANCE THE MAGIC PARADE! Watching your kid dance down main street was an amazing experience. I know I’m bias but I think our dance studio really stood out. Such an amazing group of talented dancers and teachers. I can’t say I wouldn’t do it again this year! SO.MUCH.FUN!
