New Disney Christmas Decorations

Magic Kingdom is ready for the Christmas season. Check out these beautiful photos from across the Magic Kingdom.

Yesterday we shared the titles for the exciting holiday Character Cavalcades that will be featured at Magic Kingdom. We are so excited that even though the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is cancelled, that we may still enjoy holiday themed entertainment.

Along with great Character Cavalcades throughout the day, Guests will enjoy the musical stylings of the Dapper Dans. They will be bringing yuletide cheer from the Holiday Trolley. Guests all along Main Street, U.S.A will enjoy this great way to celebrate the holidays.

The Main Street Philharmonic will be spreading Christmas cheer along with some new friends. The fun, Toy Soldiers from Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas parade will be joining this great band throughout the Park.

Special themed character cavalcades, dapper dans, main st. philharmonic, and toy soldiers will bring holiday cheer across the magic kingom.

As night falls, Cinderella Castle will come to life with special projections. These will include a kaleidoscope effect that will make Cinderella Castle don festive stripes, dots, a jeweled castle, and even decorated with ornaments. Families will love having their photos taken with Cinderella Castle illuminated behind them.

Characters can be seen in their festive gear at Animal Kingdom with the use of flotillas. Along the waterways, Guests can see “Donald’s Dino Bash” flotilla take a seasonal turn. We can’t wait to see Donald and his pals ready for Christmas.

Donald, chip ‘n dale, and even santa claus can be seen on holiday flotillas.

Chip ‘n Dale can be seen on their “Jingle Through the Jungle” flotilla. These adorable chipmunks are my daughter’s favorite characters. We can’t wait to wave to these mischievous chipmunks as they sail by.

To bring festive tunes throughout Animal Kingdom, check out the Discovery Island Drummers floating along the waterways. This is such an excellent way to experience the holidays while still keeping with the theming of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Santa and Mrs. Claus will also be spotted so make sure have your cameras ready.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Santa Clause is coming to Hollywood Boulevard. You can see Santa cruising this year in his own personal motorcade. Of course, he had to bring along his elves to help him pack his red convertible with gifts for all of the good boys and girls. Also check out ALL of the great decorations found at Hollywood Studios HERE.

“For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” is also joining in the holiday festivities. Check out a new festive finale, featuring Olaf. Olaf will bring festive songs for all Guests to enjoy.

Santa Claus motorcade, hollywood holiday tower hotel overlay, and even a grand finale to a favorite show are great ways to make the seasons bright at hollywood studios.

Nighttime at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be illuminated with beautiful projections on the iconic Hollywood Tower of Tower. A holiday themed overlay will transform the Tower of tower into the Hollywood Holiday Tower Hotel. Projections will feature a “Muppets gingerbread masterpiece, a Toy Story toy hotel, a snowy corner of Arendelle and a Dickensian village inspired by “Mickey’s Christmas Carol.”
