As you know, or maybe if you are not a regular reader you don’t, that we spent last week in sunny California at Disneyland.
One thing I was hoping for on our trip and was instantly impressed with was how Disney celebrates Christmas. As you can imagine no expense is spared and there is much effort to the detail in every Christmas decoration. Because I was so impressed with all of the Christmas spirit at Disneyland I thought I would share with you all of the awesomeness!
Look at how beautiful Sleeping Beautie’s castle looks all dressed up for the Holidays!
All of the park had pretty little touches like this… seriously everywhere. It was impressive. There was not a place you went where you didn’t remember that Christmas was on its way.
Around every nook and cranny, or anywhere there was an empty space you would see a pretty tree. This one was found in New Orleans Square.
Even Toon Town was decorated. Take a look at Goofy’s house! I love his Christmas ball garland!
And Donald’s house.
Several of the rides were redone completely for the holidays. This was truly impressive because not only were they decorated on the outside, but the ride itself was completely new for Christmas on the inside.
For Small Small World each area was decorated appropriately for the holidays with the children singing not only the small world song but also singing Jingle Bells. It was soooo cool.
My personal favorite was the Haunted Mansion which they completely revamped inside and out to be The Nightmare Before Christmas, one of my favorite movies! It was amazing. I cannot imagine the amount of work that went into this project. It is hard to believe they do all of that work just for a few months of Christmastime, but I guess that is how Disney does things. Everything over the top right?
It was really amazing. The entire ride told the story of Jack the Pumpkin king and his attempt in becoming Sandy Clause. So fun!
All of the characters in the park had on Christmas outfits.
In the Bug’s Life area they had this display of huge Christmas Balls and lights.
Seriously hats off to Disney for the amount of detail and work they do around the holidays. I was not sure what to expect but it really blew my mind.
