GUYS. With Thanksgiving is behind us, no one can disagree with me that it’s officially Christmas time. Which means that I can now tell you, with no fear of repercussions whatsoever, about my newest WDW background music obsession.
Okay. We know Christmas at WDW is, like everything that happens there, pretty magical. The special holiday background loops are part of what makes the ambiance so festive. I definitely listen to loops from the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and more.
But the thing about those loops is that they’re all a little… dare I say it… generic. They’re collections of holiday carols, lovely in their own right, but they don’t necessarily scream Disney out of context. At least not to me.
You know what’s full of holiday cheer AND feels super duper Disney to me? The Animal Kingdom Lodge Christmas music loop, that’s what!
That’s right, these aren’t your average run-of-the-mill season’s greetings. These are holiday carols sung by African singers and choruses, and they have the distinct flavor of my very favorite park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, while still being merry and bright. And I am SO INTO IT. Thanks to the Disney Hipsters for sharing this amazing collection with the world!
P.S. At 15:30 an African chorus lays down a bass line chant while a fake Elvis sings “White Christmas” and it’s everything I want December to be.
What’s your favorite Disney holiday music loop?

I keep seeing Simba with a Christmas headband complete with mistletoe hanging over his sweet little muzzle following Nala around everywhere.
They should have puppies and/or kittens in those costume lion manes wandering around the lobby!
Complete with little Go Pros on them so we can get their view on crazy critter lovers like us following them around EVERYWHERE XOXOXO
