‘Tis the season of giving!
Two children from Lake Mary spread Christmas cheer at Walt Disney World by gifting Disney characters handmade Christmas ornaments. The idea began when 5-year-old, Vanessa Harmon, had asked her mother, Candace, if they could give the characters at Walt Disney World presents this holiday season.
The family shared the wonderful memory on their Instagram account, @Disney.Bound.Family, and wrote the caption:
Giving Christmas Presents at Disney! Have you done anything special for the characters?? We have decided to make it a holiday tradition to make something for them every year.
My 5 year old daughter wanted to do something nice for the holidays and we came out with making ornaments. We tried to color coordinate to the characters when we could! It’s a super easy project. We found clear ornaments and stuffed them with glitter and tinsel! Then we took fabric paint and made little Mickey ears on the outsides. It was really special to watch the kids give the presents! They were so excited! ⠀
The family also shared that though the experience was absolutely incredible and created memories that will last a lifetime, of course, there were some mishaps. “There were some accidents. Mickey dropped his (it’s plastic so was just fine) and Stitch took the cap off,” the caption said.
But overall, the Disney characters absolutely loved this gift and it truly shows that this is what the holidays are all about:
We saw Anna and Elsa last, which was my daughter’s favorite, so she wanted to paint something herself just for them. It was so special how they showed each other their gifts too! I can’t wait to do this again next year! It’s a memory we won’t forget.
As you can see in the photos, Vanessa and her 2-year-old brother, Jack, decided to dress up as an elf and Santa Claus during their expedition of presenting the gifts, which was a huge hit!

This story is extremely heartwarming and everyone loved this sweet gesture. Continue to spread the holiday cheer this season.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
