Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree, Disney Fastpass+ Testing, New Fantasyland Entertainment: The Royal Majesty Makers and The Giggle Gang – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We finally had the chance to see the Magic Kingdom Christmas tree this year, which went up after the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade taping (below, left). It is pretty much the same as in previous years, with a train, toy soldiers, gifts and more under the tree including a reference to Walt Disney’s personal Carolwood Pacific “Fair Weather Route” railroad. (below, right).

The tree is pretty much the same as in previous years, with a train, toy soldiers, gifts and more under the tree including a reference to Walt Disney’s personal Carolwood Pacific “Fair Weather Route” railroad.

Guests waited in front of Cinderella Castle for the taping to begin (below, right).

Magic Kingdom Now Fully Decorated for the Holidays with the Christmas Tree, Gifts and Garland! – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

The Magic Kingdom Christmas tree is now up in Town Square! We entered the park this afternoon (below, left and right), with our first glimpse of the tree being outside the train station. The Magic Kingdom decorations are now complete for 2010! It was a beautiful but chilly day for Florida as some of the flowers around the resort have been covered to protect them from the overnight cold (not shown).
