It’s November 1st, and that means that holiday and Christmas decorations have ALREADY begun arriving in the parks!
In fact, this morning we spotted the famous Christmas tree on Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom, which is seriously impressive considering the park was decked out for Halloween yesterday! So how do they do it all overnight? Well, we’ve got some photos that may explain things a little better.
Disney released photos today that show the park’s overnight transformation to the holiday season, mainly focusing on the installation of the massive Christmas tree.
It arrives in multiple pre-decorated sections and is assembled with a crane. This whole process takes place in the middle of the night, after guests have left the park for the day.
Once the various sections are stacked on top of each other, Cast Members on lifts put the finishing touches on the tree, making sure that everything is assembled correctly and put in its proper place.
And they use more lifts down Main Street, U.S.A. as well so that the wreaths and garlands can be hung from the buildings. This year’s wreaths look a little different than they typically do, with more gold accents in honor of the 50th Anniversary.
Cast Members also have to take the time to deck out the lampposts, as well as the park entrance area. It takes a whole team of people to accomplish this big task!
And by the time the sun begins to rise, they wrap up their work and check to make sure everything is ready for the guests. What a busy shift!
We give mad props to the workers who completely remake Magic Kingdom overnight, you guys do a great job! Stay tuned to AllEars for more details on all the holiday decorations in the four parks, resorts, and Disney Springs!
