Inside the Magic presents a 2017 Advent Calendar: December 11th

in Disney, Epcot, Inside the Magic, Walt Disney World

Happy Holidays! Welcome to the ITM Advent Calendar.  Each day from now until Christmas, ITM will feature a festive photo for you to enjoy (save, share, add as a wallpaper for your mobile device, etc.).

Advent calendars have been used celebrate the season since the 1700’s. Traditional versions included doors or windows with dates leading up to Christmas.  Behind each was a surprise.  These varied from smaller parts to a larger image, candies or trinkets.  In Denmark, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, a daily Yule calendar television show is aired up until Christmas Eve.

Today’s image depicts an illuminated delight from Epcot’s (Walt Disney World Resort, Florida) past.  These amazing arches of lights, known as the “Lights of Winter,” covered the corridor between Future World and World Showcase from 1994 -2008, “dancing” to the area’s holiday music in their later years.

Tune in tomorrow (and every day until Christmas) for a new seasonal surprise!
