DDW Pic 1916. Christmas - Boardwalk

Christmas - Boardwalk
Most Disney resorts have great Christmas tree displays inside their lobby areas. The Boardwalk has some nice indoor trees, as well as this large one on the lawn. I took this shot last week while enjoying the Christmas decorations at the resorts near Epcot.

DDW Pic 1915. Christmas - Polynesian

Christmas - Polynesian
The Polynesian Village Resort Christmas decorations certainly have a tropical flare. There are wreaths, trees, and garland inside and outside of the main building. This Christmas tree, made of flowers and palms, is right outside of the front entrance.

DDW Pic 1914. Christmas - Wilderness Lodge

Christmas - Wilderness Lodge
All of the Disney resorts have great Christmas decorations during this time of year, but one really stands out. The Wilderness Lodge has the "feel" of a resort in a much colder climate than Florida. With its big fireplace and giant Christmas tree, it is one of my favorite spots to visit in December.

DDW Pic 1913. Christmas - The Contemporary

Christmas - The Contemporary
There are several great gingerbread displays around the Walt Disney World Resort each Christmas season. This Frozen one can be found at The Contemporary, near the gift shop area. It is done in the style of Mary Blair, who was the artist behind "it's a small world." If you zoom in to the sign on the left, you can see the ingredients that went into this confectionery creation.

DDW Pic 1912. Christmas - Magic Kingdom

Christmas - Magic Kingdom
This year, I've decided to go with a "theme" for the entire month of December. Each day, I will be posting a picture of Christmas decorations from a different spot around Walt Disney World. Disney does an amazing job of decorating the parks and resorts, and I thought it would be fun to photograph some of the many trees, wreaths, etc. that can be found during this holiday season. I am starting the month off with a shot of the Magic Kingdom Christmas tree, which I took this past weekend.

DDW Pic 1911. Expedition Everest

Expedition Everest
Expedition Everest is one of the most unique coasters in the country. Riding it at night gives you the best experience. Since your eyes are already adjusted to the dark, you get a great view of the giant Yeti near the end of the attraction. I took this shot of the mangled track while riding last night.

DDW Pic 1910. The Hall of Presidents


The Hall of Presidents
Since The Hall of Presidents will be changing after January, I plan on visiting several more times to enjoy the current show. Although I am looking forward to the new version, you never know how much will be changed. My hope is that the Lincoln and Washington animatronics will continue to have "speaking" rolls, along with the new President Trump. I took this shot of George Washington a few days ago.
