Disney World, Unwrapped

Orlando's Walt Disney World, at any time of year, is full of tourists toting point-n-shoots and SLRs, chasing screaming kids past princesses and plaster mountain ranges. The Happiest Place on Earth, however, isn't just for family photos. Real or not, Walt's vision has resulted in acre after acre of stunning scenery, soaring structures, characters, animals and animatronics, all worth their weight in pixie dust.

Christmas time brings it all to a new level. With the most famous landmarks draped in lights and the parks decked in much more than holly, Disney World is, and Alice would agree, a veritable camera's Wonderland.

Whether you encounter a family of galloping giraffes along the Animal Kingdom safari, experience the dancing Osbourne lights at Hollywood Studios or traverse the world at EPCOT, Mickey and friends will assuredly not disappoint when it comes to photo ops. And of course, the lights dripping from the famous castle will spark the imagination of any visitor, young or old.

Here are some of my favorite snapshots from Christmas time in Disney World.
