Let’s take a look at past holidays – Pop Century and Art of Animation

There are only two value resorts that we tend to check out during the holidays. Last year, Art of Animation was new (so, of course we had to see what they were presenting) … and since we love the decorations at Pop Century and it’s a short walk away, Nick took photos there too.

Fort Wilderness Christmas 2013

If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you know that we really like Fort Wilderness. Before the new kennel opened up across from Port Orleans Riverside and it became more difficult to drive over and park at Fort Wilderness, it was a regular occurrence for us to go to the Fort and go

Epcot’s France Pavilion – Holidays 2013

As you may have expected, there were few items of Christmas-y interest in Japan and Morrocco… Next up is France…

we weren’t the only ones wondering what the connection was between France and the peppermint discs on the light poles… any ideas?

there were three display ornaments containing different elements of

Epcot’s America Pavilion – Holidays 2013

America pavilion is mostly decorated in the Della Robia style…

this year, the large tree was over in Santa’s Village instead of on the fountain in the center

I particularly like the little tin lanterns on the tree

Epcot’s Italy Pavilion – Holidays 2013

Now, we move on to Italy…

the swags in the wine room included grapes and wine themed ribbon (I really want these wine glasses that have a reflection of World Showcase – Illuminations Reflections of Earth)

the decor in the venetian mask room was quite nice (including the harlequin pattern on

Epcot’s Germany Pavilion – Holidays 2013

Our next stop on the World Showcase ornament tour is Germany (there weren’t many decorations in the china Pavilion)…
