Disney World Christmas Music
Dad loves the Disney World Christmas Music they play in all the parks during the Christmas season.
Memories can be a powerful thing. Dad had one of those powerful rememberances just after Thanksgiving.
I hopped in my car to drive to my sisters house. It's about a 5 hour trip. Since it's after Thanksgiving it's time for Christmas music. (You can't have Christmas music until after Thanksgiving at our house.) So I put in my Disney World Christmas Music CD and off we went.
As I was driving I was singing along. I sing good. You should hear me. I sing loud too, but good.
After about an hour in to the trip, "THAT" song came on the radio. You know the one, the song where you know exactly what you were doing you were the first time you heard it. Yeah, that song. For me that song is Andy Williams singing "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." What a great song. The words are so true. (I know, I'm a little strange.)

I first heard Andy crooning "It's the hap - happiest feeling of all" in the Magic Kingdom of all places on one of our Disney World vacations.
Let me tell you the story. Me, Mrs. Mom, The Princess and the Man-Child were going to our very first Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. We were so excited.
I had been planning this for years. I wanted to go to MVMCP (see what Dad says about acronyms) because it was the hip thing to do, at that time, for those of us Disneyphiles who permeated the net.
It was a beautiful Friday night in Orlando. There was just a hint of a chill in the air. The sun was going down as we walked into the park. People were streaming out, but very few were streaming in. We started down Main Street toward Casey's Corner (our favorite eating place in the Magic Kingdom) the Man-Child in the lead, as always. Lights were coming on, the decorations were starting to shine, it was that perfect time of evening when the colors explode then fade away... Every thing was perfect. The family was relaxed and together...
Andy started singing... The "snow" started falling... The Man-Child yelled, "Daddy, the snow tastes like soap." It was fantastic.
It was one of those moments you never forget...
Isn't it great that Uncle Walt and his boys use Disney World Christmas Music to create these kind of memories every day?
