Although we won’t be seeing Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party or the famous gingerbread houses at the Disney Resorts (bummer), there’s still SO much entertainment just around the corner. We’re ready to see holiday projections on Cinderella Castle, Santa waving to guests during Character Cavalcades, and the booths coming to the Festival of the Holidays.

However, we’re heading all the way to Disney’s Animal Kingdom since Christmas decorations have finally appeared in the parks! And, we’re giving you a full tour of all the wreaths, trees, garlands, and more you can find!

Discovery Island

As soon as you enter the park, you’ll be able to find the same colorful Discovery Island decorations from last year! The pastel luminaries and lanterns are already bright on their own during the day, but they also light up at night to add a festive glow to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
