Christmas Decorations Around Walt Disney World

By Nick

I love Christmas. Always have. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that I love Christmas decorations.
On our trip to Walt Disney World last week, I took pictures of many of the decorations around Walt Disney World, and thought I'd share some of them.

Let's start with the resorts. We stayed at the Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.

The Wilderness Lodge lobby is arguably the most festive and dramatically decorated on property.

Right off the main lobby:

Even the Wilderness Lodge Mercantile windows get in on the act:

The entrance to Whispering Canyon Cafe:

The decorations in the lobby of the Villas, located a very short walk from the Lodge itself, are the perfect fit for this mush smaller, cozy area.

Over at the Grand Floridian you'll find a pretty impressive display with a large tree and the Gingerbread House.

A Frozen gingerbread display over at the Contemporary.

The Boardwalk Resort has a Gingerbread Cone stand!

The Boardwalk hallways off of the main lobby:

On the Boardwalk's green:

The Yacht Club has a very nice train layout and nautically themed tree.

The Beach Club has a gingerbread carousel.

Now, let's hop on a bus, boat or monorail and head to the Magic Kingdom, where you will of course find Cinderella Castle covered in ice.

Between the night of Thursday the 11th and Friday the 12th, a giant tree miraculously appeared at the entrance of Main Street! 

Just a few of the windows of the Emporium.

On the day we went to the Animal Kingdom, it was drizzling, and I only got a photo of the large tree at the entrance.

Disney's Hollywood Studios also has a large tree at the main entrance, as well as the very popular Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.

All the parks have touches of the holidays in shops and restaurants. This is inside 50's Prime Time Cafe.

Probably the most festive park is Epcot, because of the Holidays Around the World activities at the World Showcase Pavilions.
There are also festive touches at the entrance and through Future World, primarily in character topiaries.

On to World Showcase.

At the American Adventure, you'll find Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Please stop back on Christmas day for more about the Epcot Holiday Storytellers.

  1. I love the thought and effort that goes into Christmas decorating at WDW!
    I have about 30 Disney decorations at home - not quite as many as at the parks but I am working on it!
    I love the huge trees at each park. I went on the Backstage Tour a few years ago and seeing the Christmas warehouse was fascinating.
