Tale as Old as Time
This year, Mickey and his pals at Walt Disney World have a special retelling of a classic tale: “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. We hope you may be able to enjoy this Christmas story with your family and friends just in time for Christmas. (written and shared by Disney Parks)
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the Parks not a creature was stirring, except for Mickey Mouse The projections dazzled on the castle with cheer A shining beacon for Santa and his reindeer The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of Olaf danced in their heads. Mickey Bars and Dole Whips swirled bright in their mind Next to gingerbread and festive treats of all kinds.
Back at the Kingdom, Mickey admired the sight Of peaceful Main Street, bathed in gold light A towering tree stood tall at the entrance Shining and glittering in all its resplendence. When a call from above, growing in sound Started to crescendo, making Mickey’s heart pound On the castle he heard a thunderous clatter, And a man with a cap that rivaled Mad Hatter’s
He saw eight soft reindeer, leading a cherry red sled Slowing their gallop, to make a landing ahead And at the helm was driver, jolly and quick Mickey knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. Appreciating the splendor of Main Street’s decor, Mickey waved good night to Santa, and strolled out the door Tired but excited for the very next day To welcome his guests, for some jolly play
Santa gazed fondly at the sight all around him He spruced up the garland and pine tinsel trim. Inhaling deep, he smelled scents waft from the Bakery Delicious decadent cookies, so sweet and buttery He glanced at his watch, grateful for time to spare, To stop at Magic Kingdom and spread additional cheer With a large sack of gifts upon his wide shoulder Trekked through the park in the following order
First was the Haunted Mansion, Liberty Square Tipped his red cap to the 999 spirits there Left a laugh-out-loud list of puns for the Jingle Cruise Skippers (Even though their jokes always made Santa snicker) A golden pot of honey for Winnie the Pooh And first edition hand-bound books for Belle too The Pirates were given unsolved treasure maps And for each Dwarf a scented candle to help him relax
Hot tea for the Tiki Room birds (their vocals were sore) For Princess Tiana a bright white chef’s hat she’d adore The Space Mountain astronauts got fuel for their rockets For Chip and Dale matching PJs, tucked in their closet Santa hustled throughout the park, not one present forgotten Ensured he put gifts in every single stocking And in turn he enjoyed the stillness of the park Decorated for the season, oddly peaceful in the dark
Soon he was done, the task completed with care Prepared to leave Main Street with holiday flair He had worked quick as he could, a long night ahead Finished delivering the gifts, and readied his sled. He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But the Kingdom heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight- “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
