Christmas 2013: Seeing Epcot’s Holidays Around the World with our CP friends
It’s Christmas week – the parks are packed – and Christmas is only two days away!
We drove over to Epcot for the evening with our CP friends. Caroline won four tickets for VIP IllumiNations seating outside the Italy pavilion from a drawing at her work (DAK).
We bought some hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies before the show and walked around the World Showcase. It was warm enough that we all were wearing shorts – it doesn’t feel like Christmas at all! 🙁
We went early enough to see the Candlelight Processional lead by one of my favorite country singers, Trace Adkins. It was a wonderful Christmas-y evening with good friends.
