For starters, Sleeping Beauty castle was looking as gorgeous as ever as part of the festivities.




Muppets fans can check out the Caroling Coach featuring Kermit and the whole gang (HOW CUTE IS THAT?!).

Throughout the park, you might also spot some really unique characters. We found Goofy as Jacob Marley and Scrooge as Ebenezer Scrooge as part of the event.

We also spotted Lilo and others throughout the park, available for guests to take photos with at a distance.

Hey Lilo!
