D23 Magic & Meriment 2012 Evening One at Walt Dsiney World – Holiday Dessert Buffet & Fireworks, Italy Pavilion, Epcot

Being able to attend a dessert buffet and watch the Epcot fireworks from a World Showcase Pavilion (ended up being Italy), was one of the selling points when nora suggested to nick that we attend the D23 Magic & Merriment event.

Hospitality Suite inside American Adventure on Day One of D23 Magic & Merriment 2012 at Walt Disney World

During the first day of the D23 Magic & Merriment 2012 at Walt Disney World, we were given access to the Hospitality Suite at American Adventure.

Disney’s Holiday D-Lights Tour Review – 2012

We took this tour two years ago and enjoyed it quite a bit (here). As we did with the Yuletide Fantasy Tour (here), we’re going to stick with new stuff.
