Once again, we see how this family (Laura, Mike, Max, and Ella) is clearly a Disney-oriented family as the mom looks through a Walt Disney World Resort brochure as her husband makes the kids mickey mouse pancakes. Pixar’s Lightyear is being streamed on Disney+, and Disney-themed decorations are going on the Christmas tree. And a very special Mickey Mouse plush doll is at the center of it all as it is passed generously to the little girl from her older brother, who then gifts it to her new baby sibling.

This was the third installment in a series that began in 2020 with a grandmother (Lola) and her granddaughter, Laura, spending the holidays together and a Mickey Mouse doll gifted to Lola when she was a little girl by her father. Then in 2021, we jump ahead a few years to show Laura having two kids of her own–Max and Ella–who now have to welcome a new stepdad, Mike, into their home through Christmas traditions and sharing Disney stories.
