We hadn't planned on doing the Holiday magic tour but after having such a great time on the Walk in Walts footsteps tour we decided we would.
We booked at Guest services just outside the gate and we given an evening tour time. We met the tour guide just outside the Town hall where we all introduced ourselves and headed off. The guide explained about all the decorations, how other cultures celebrate Christmas and how the imagineers design the decorations. We walked through most of the park, with the guide pointing out so many decorations we just hadn't noticed before.In Main street we were treated to a selection of holiday fudge flavours.
Down near the FantasyFaire we were again treated to the most delicious hot chocolate and a large gingerbread man, the hot chocolate was even served in reuseable Mickey christmas travel mugs which we got to keep. Our tour climaxed in front row seats for the evening parade, we all sat together and sang and shouted 'Merry Christmas' to all the floats and passerbys. Before saying goodnight our guide handed each of us delightful Tinkerbell christmas pins. It was a lovely tour, which really put all of us into the Christmas spirit.
