VIDEO: Watch as Disneyland Decks the Halls for the Holidays
It’s the most wonderful time of the year at the Happiest Place on Earth! That’s right! Tomorrow is the official start of the Christmas Season at Disneyland Resort. Seemingly overnight both theme parks are magically transformed from Halloween until Christmas.
Though these preparations seem to happen almost overnight getting the parks ready for the season requires a ton of planning and teamwork! That’s why we’re excited to show you this video of Disneyland’s resident elves ready-ing the park the festive season! Let’s take a look.
A few fun facts about decorating for the holidays at the Disneyland Resort:
220 Garlands: The exterior of Main Street, U.S.A., features approximately 220 garlands that measure more than four miles long, with approximately 80 wreaths and 120 bows bringing the season to life on this charming street.
36 Cast Members and 35 Days: It takes nearly three dozen cast members 35 days to install the glittering façade of “it’s a small world” Holiday and nearly 18 days to decorate the holiday attraction’s dazzling interior.
60-Foot Tall Tree: The Disneyland Christmas tree stands 60-feet tall on Main Street, U.S.A. and features 1,500 Victorian-inspired ornaments with 100 oversized faux candles.
126,000 Castle Lights: Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle shimmers during the day and is illuminated each night with more than 126,000 twinkling LED lights, sparkling “icicles” and shimmering snow-capped turrets.
50 Foot Christmas Tree: A 50-foot Christmas tree adorns Carthay Circle to help guests get in the holiday spirit. The tree and surrounding buildings are decorated with vintage-style ornaments in keeping with the theme of Buena Vista Street, inspired by Los Angeles as it appeared when Walt Disney arrived in the 1920s.
