Christmas is one of the biggest holidays of the year. We go nuts buying gifts in November, especially on Cyber Monday and Black Friday. We hear Christmas songs on the radio and in stores. We read listicles about the best Hallmark Christmas movies. And then there are Advent calendars made to count down from December 1st until Christmas day. It's hard to choose a favorite part of Christmas prep, but we're partial to Advent calendars because you can easily include your entire family. Whether you let the kids take turns revealing each day or the adults are also part of the rotation, it's fun to have a small yet daily surprise.
This, of course, brings us to our DIY Advent calendar. Disney had a big year with movie sequels and live-action remakes, and the introduction of their own streaming service, Disney+. (We're already screaming internally about binge-watching the entirety of Kim Possible and Darkwing Duck.) There's also tons of content and what could be better than an almost month-long countdown with Disney? If you want to take this calendar one step further by watching a Disney movie or tv show every day, be our guest! Every day on the calendar corresponds to something you can watch from day one with Disney+. Are you able to guess which Disney movies and shows will be featured every day?
25 Days of Disney Advent Calendar
Glue or tape the numbers along the top edge so you can reveal the surprise for the day!
We took the number off the first day. You can either remove or flip back the number card each day before Christmas.
