  • [Pictures] Does anyone have pictures of the Christmas tree and wreath in Buena Vista Street?

    I saw some pictures showing the Christmas tree and some decorations in Buena Vista street and I want to know if anyone has some clear pictures or knows where to get some. I'm really excited for Christmas this year and the new decorations I'm seeing make me happy.

            That tree seems a little...erm...underwhelming. Of course, this is coming from someone who only saw a nighttime picture of it.

              I think the decor (what I've seen online anyway) is appropriate for Buena Vista Street. The typical Christmas decorations of the 1930s would be more understated than, lets say, New Orleans in the 1960s. I particularly like seeing the old-time toys under the tree.

                Thanks so much for searching them out! Brought a smile to my face; two of the ornaments on the BV tree are absolutely identical to fancy Christmas light bulbs that my brother and I had in the 50s-60s when we were kids. I had a fancy Snowman lightbulb, his was a fancy Santa. They screwed into the string of lights & we always made sure that Dad strung the lights so our bulbs were front & center.

                Even tho I won't be at the Parks this Christmas, I'm going to imagine that a little bit of my childhood is hanging on that tree.

                  There's something about blue LED lights that I really hate.

                    They look cold rather than warm. They don't give that cozy Christmas-y feeling.

                      I totally agree with you about the LED's. As someone who has professionally decorated for Christmas all over the country, my eye goes right to them...and they're cold. They don't have that warm, fuzzy glow that you get from incandescent lights. I totally get why they're popular...modern, energy efficient, blah, blah, blah...but they just don't feel like Christmas!

                      I was a Disney World last Christmas, and while I loved all of their decor, the LED's killed me!

                          I don't really like the LEDs lol it doesn't fit bvs tree for the 60's I'm pretty sure they diddnt have LEDs back then. they should have used warm glow color LEDs looks
                          like the tradition ones but are energy savers. And after looking at Carsland pics they decor looks idk I'm just not feeling it for some reason so under whelmed from what they were saying a year ago hopefully its not finished and better things come in.

                            I love it. I think if it were too similar to the color palate of Disneyland's Christmas Tree people would complain that it looks the same. I like that the two are different.

                                What you're seeing is like the first half of the first wave of Christmas decorations. There will be plenty more, and I am sure Cars Land will not disappoint you.

                                    Add me to the list of those who think the DCA christmas decor (so far) is underwhelming. Did Christmas look that tacky back in the day? The wreath on Carthay really sticks out but in a very bad way. I'll stay positive though and hope it all works once it's done.

                                      Judging from photos from the 30s, Christmas was pretty basic. Sometimes less looks better.

                                      About the blue LEDs: It's like my eyes are unable to "focus" on them. It's weird. I think this could easily be solved by using white LEDs in colored bulbs. Not colored lights in colored bulbs or clear bulbs.

                                        do remember that DCA has a theme now in the area of BV st, and so you can't compare the decor of xmas to that at Disneyland..the two are different but it feels much more like christmas to me at DCA! i can't wait till they play white christmas by bing crosby!

                                        I think CCT looks fab with the wreath! maybe they will add some garland later, but for now i think it loosk great the light poles look fab as well!
