Grand Floridian Christmas Tree

Now that Christmas has officially begun, according to Mickey Mouse, decorations have popped up all over Walt Disney World! Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and even Epcot each have their oversized trees and a mass of holiday decorations up. The resorts are no exception though! We recently spotted the Grand Floridian Resort’s beautiful and enormous tree set up in the lobby!

Disney fans everywhere were hugely disappointed by this year’s news that the traditional gingerbread display was not to be. The news dropped in September, along with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party being canceled. Normally, the gingerbread displays are varied, draw large groups, and are a big crowd-pleaser. The large group part is what most likely caused the skip in tradition. The Victorian-style gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is a particularly popular destination for holiday park-goers. Last year’s house contained 800 lbs of flour, 1,050 lbs of honey, 140 pints of egg whites, 600 lbs of powdered sugar, 700 lbs of chocolate, and 35 lbs of spices. It’s practically big enough to live in!

Thankfully though, the Christmas tree was not canceled this year! The giant 40-foot beauty is decorated with thousands of ornaments, ribbons, and lights. It stands tall in the center of the lobby, ushering guests into the elegantly decorated resort. Some traditions never change and we are glad that this stunning display is one of them!
