I have been on a cruise before and loved it! I would not want to be away from my friends and family at Christmas though.

“Journey to the North Pole Cruises”
Visit Mr. and Mrs. Claus on the far shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene (Cd'A) where at "The North Pole" a magical toyland, with a variety of holiday themes, many with animated features, will suddenly appear out of the darkness.

We had added an exciting new attraction this year, our Victorian Village is adorned with over 5,000 lights!

You will view the show aboard one of the fabulous cruise boats of The Lake Coeur d'Alene Fun Fleet.
I wish it was in New Jersey it sounds like a really neat thing to do.

Those North Pole Cruises sound like so much fun! I don't think we have anything like that here in Orlando.

However, we do have Walt Disney World!! It is SO beautifully decorated for Christmas!!

In Downtown Disney where all the shops are, they have a make-shift ice skating rink, carolers walking around singing and the most awesome decorations. It really feels like Christmas even without snow!

The Magic Kingdom has the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parade. It is AWESOME!! The entire park is decorated with Christmas everywhere.

Over at MGM Studios, they have the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights display. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! There are over 5 MILLION lights on display!! The lights "dance" to music. Every 15 minutes all of the displays will glow and dim to holiday tunes. It also SNOWS for us....okay, okay...it's soap flakes! But hey, we love it!!

Oh boy does it snow here! Its erally beautiful because the lake is surrounded by mountains covered in snow.

I think Disney World at Christmas time would be so neat to go to!

Disney at the holidays is awsome. When I was litle I went twice at Christmas time, And 2 years ago my hubby and I took my step-daughters the day before Thanksgiving and it was already all Christmassy. It is definetly my favorite time of year to be there.
