Disney doesn't disappoint with these upbeat, catchy Christmas carols. Don't be surprised if you find yourself truly impressed by the talent brought together on this CD, including the punky original "Girl of My Dreams" by the Jonas Brothers and Jordan Pruitt's "Celebrate Love," which could warm your toes on a snowy sleigh ride.
