As part of our construction and projects update from yesterday, we took some time to enjoy the changing of the seasons inside Magic Kingdom, when the Halloween and Christmas decorations were changed out over the course of about six hours.
In this update, we’ll take a look at the holiday decorations around Main Street on a morning that was a little cloudier than I would have liked. We’ll get back on a sunnier day, but it’s possible that some of the reds and greens look a little more vibrant against a grayer backdrop. And when they don’t, we can always turn up the colors manually.
We should see a few more holiday decorations installed over the next couple of days as all eyes turn towards the first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party on the 8th.

We’ll get over to Hollywood Studios for the decorations and happenings over there later this week. Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM starts on the 6th and the rest of the holiday happenings are slated to begin on the 8th.
I’ll also have a review of this year’s Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM Dessert Party featuring Santa Goofy, hopefully with a healthy dose of gingerbread.
We’ll also see what things look like at Animal Kingdom after the Christmas tree goes up there later this month. Perhaps we’ll see the guy in the mech suit with a row of stockings hanging off the sides or the Shaman of Songs on River Journey can rock a Santa hat and sing “Jingle Bells” out of tune instead of all about Eywa. It can’t be that difficult to change the creatures in the projections to reindeer and elves. Heck, have the ride tell the story of The Santa Clause 2 instead.
We’ll get over to the Festival of the Holidays at Epcot once it gets underway on the 18th.
Potentially with a review of all the food and drink items available around World Showcase.
As you may be aware, the website goes all out for Food and Wine. Across the easywdw.com family of sites, we spend over a thousand dollars ordering food and drink and several hundred hours writing about all of it.
But Food and Wine goes on forever.
While the Holiday program is only available for about six weeks.
For now, we’ll enjoy a quick look around Main Street.
As always, not all of the pictures are good, but don’t let that stop you from letting me know:
If you’d like, you can check out 2016’s Magic Kingdom Christmas decoration pictures here, which includes sunny skies along with some nighttime shots. Note the Mickey Floral was in the shape of a red Christmas ornament. It’s a wreath this year.
2017’s pictures are available here along with some information on what you can expect from a holiday time rope drop at Magic Kingdom.
We’ll check in on some food and drink changes next.
