I had so much fun putting this holiday gift guide together last year I thought I would do it again. I love finding gifts that are not only unapologetically Disney but also gifts that are Disney inspired and remind me of my favorite attractions, movies, or resorts.

What We’re Reading

Dawn from I Am a Mommy Nerd had the chance to step into a recording booth to find out what it’s like to voice a Disney character. How awesome is that! Check out her post on voicing Baymax.

Mary at Capturing Magical Memories shares some of the cute, Wilderness Lodge branded merchandise you can find in the resort’s gift shop the Mercantile. We are staying here for the first time in January and I can’t wait!

Ryan from Main Street Gazette posted a photo that really makes me miss the Living Seas.

Lisa with Babes in Disneyland shares why she doesn’t hate Frozen and why you shouldn’t either. I have to admit I’ve been getting a little tired for the Frozen mania even though I loved the movie. But my niece loves it and I can’t wait to see her face when she visits the Walt Disney World for the first time in December.

Sarah at Eating WDW tries the BoardWalk Bakery’s fall specialty cupcake.

And Nicole from Sparkly Ever After shares all the fun you can find at this year’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The snow on Main Street is always my favorite. :)
