Holiday Edition: The Everyday Adventures Of The Purple Van

It’s always fun to drive a purple van around Walt Disney World dropping off Lockers and strollers…but it’s even more fun around the holidays when that amazing talent for theming is focused on decorating the place for Christmas. So I thought it might be fun to have a special Holiday Edition of The Everyday Adventures Of The Purple Van…

This Holiday Edition of The Everyday Adventures will be long on photos and short on text...usually just a quick description of where the photo was taken. And we’ll focus on what we see on our daily delivery and pickup runs….things you might see in the resorts or on the roads…the purple van doesn’t go into parks…and it also ventures off WDW property!

…and I’ll be including a link to a slideshow of the photos…so off we go...ho, ho, ho…

…here comes the Holiday Edition of The Everyday Adventures Of The Purple Van…







The very first sign of the holidays....the entrance to the Magic Kingdom parking lot.
