Photo Report: Christmas has come to the Magic Kingdom

It’sDSCN7881 November, so of course in Florida, that means Christmas has come to Walt Disney World!  We went to the Magic Kingdom yesterday to check out the recently put up Christmas decorations.  Halloween only ended a week ago and the decorations went up in only days, including the big Christmas Tree in Town Square.  The tree is usually not put up until December after the taping Christmas Day Parade, but this year it has arrived a month early with everything else! 

DSCN7884    The decorations came quickly in preparation for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party which begins tomorrow, November 8th and is on select nights for the next two months.  If you’ve never been, it is definitely a fun time, offering the Christmas parade, special stage shows and dance parties, and all you can eat & drink sugar cookies and hot chocolate.  Cinderella’s Castle is also completed with its ‘ice’ Christmas lights, which begin installation way back in August.

The new castle turrets, which have been slowly installed over the past few months, are now in full view and also have their own lighting!  I will say, they look DSCN7893marvelous.  We also walked around and saw some other decorations in a few areas of the park.  I have always loved the Christmas decorations.

Main Street U.S.A. is showing its most recent decorations again with the wreaths strewn along the buildings.  The wreaths replaced the beautiful garland that used to hang over the street itself.  This is because of the height of the parade floats for the Festival of Fantasy parade which debuted last year.  I will always miss the garland, but the new wreaths also look very nice.  DSCN7955

We also stayed to watch the castle lighting show and enjoy the decorations at night.  The castle is gorgeous looking as usual and Main Street is so pretty with the big Christmas Tree lit up.  All of this mixed with the Christmas music playing in the background really helps put you in the Christmas spirit.
