The Christmas Trees of Disney World

tree0

The Christmas tree at the Magic Kingdom is probably the most recognized one at WDW.

We got to spend a day resort hopping, followed by some park hopping, seeing just a few of the Christmas Trees of Disney World.

At last count, there were over 1,300 decorated trees throughout the WDW property.  To prepare for the holidays, Disney rolls out 150 semi-trailer truckloads of decorations to cover 24 resorts, 4 theme parks, 1 water park, and Disney Springs.  And, we do mean cover!

  • 15 miles of decorated garland is draped
  • 300,000 yards of ribbon and bows placed
  • 1,500 wreaths are hung
  • 5 million lights are strung, with 98 percent of the lighting used being LED

    Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

       by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

    Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

    We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

    We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
