Disney’s Magic Kingdom evokes warm feelings during the holiday season and it’s already started! Take a look to see all the charming theming.
Countdown to Christmas
We’re so excited that the Christmas Party is returning this year! We are back to the original format after a two year hiatus. In 2020 they had castle projections and a themed cavalcade. Then, in 2021, they hosted Very Merriest After Hours. You can read Monica’s review HERE.
This year’s Christmas party brings back new and returning holiday offerings, including Mickey’s Once Upon a Time Christmastime parade with Santa and Mickey Mouse greeting guests. Then, get ready for “A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas,” featuring Buzz, Mike Wazowski, and Stitch on the Rockettower Plaza Stage.
The very first party will be on November 8. To get ready for it and the wonderful holiday season, Disney decks ALL the Magic Kingdom halls.
Disney’s Magic Kingdom Main Street U.S.A. evokes feelings of a bygone era. In small town America, people didn’t just purchase merchandise, they carefully eyed each elaborate window display dreaming of what they might get for Christmas. Magic Kingdom invites guests to do the same.
Even though these holiday window fronts are amazing, you’ll find amazing displays the entire year. Be sure to check out the creative theming next time you stroll down Main Street U.S.A.
After you finish window shopping, be sure to check out the stores themselves for holiday decorations and merchandise.
I (Susan) must admit I love Disney merchandise, especially trip souvenirs. My favorites are all the adorable Christmas lines that come out each season. Not only are there multiple merchandise lines, but each year they’re totally new! If you celebrate Hanukkah, Disney carries merchandise for that, too.
So, if you see something you must have, be sure to grab it before it’s gone! And don’t worry, if you’re not going to the theme park this year. shopDisney also has a large selection.
Part of the reason I love Disney during the holidays is it brings back warm memories of being a kid at Christmas. Just look around and you’ll find large toys like the toy soldier statue above, candy decorations, and presents throughout Main Street U.S.A.
A Disney Christmas wouldn’t be complete without the many wreaths lining Main Street U.S.A. and the castle hub.
Each beautiful wreath is bursting with ornaments, greenery, ribbons, and fruit. Each of these elements come together to create a magical display.
Not only does Disney deck out the windows and walkways, but the buildings also receive the royal holiday treatment. City Hall welcomes guests with red and green garland.
The train station is my favorite decorated building. Now, we just need the train coming by again!
The character spot shown above is adjacent to City Hall and just waiting for Santa to greet guests this season.
When Disney World’s 50th celebration began on October 1, 2021, I had mixed feelings about the Cinderella Castle makeover. It seemed more purple than blue. However, shortly after that Disney added the gold ribbons, jewels, 50th logo and so much more! After seeing it finished, I was in awe.
Not only is the front of Cinderella Castle decked out in regal blue and gold garland, lights and ornaments, but that back is equally as stunning.
