  • Are the decorations done?

    I went to Disneyland on Sunday and although most of the Christmas decorations appeared to be up I also noticed that alot of stuff seemed to be missing. There were no lights on the trees at the hub. The castle didn't have any decorations on it. Main Street didn't have the garland hangin across the street. Are they done with the decorations?

    The start of the holiday season was officially November 10, so I would assume that yes, all of the decorations are done... but you never know.. after all, it isn't even Thanksgiving yet...

      Not sure if there is still more to go up. But I would assume that they would have it done in time for the Christmas day parade taping this past weekend. They didn't do the garland over Main St last year either because it hung too low for floats in the parade. I could be wrong though.

        yeah the garland hangs to low for the daytime parade floats so they can't put them up for xmas. but for the other decorations, i hope they are not done with the castle, there is not very much up there, and the lights on the trees in and around the hub area, never really got that many lights these past few years. i remember when they used to put them up and they had like blue snowball looking lights in them but they haven't been used in awhile.

          I noticed the 'no garland' last year too. It's too bad - thought it always looked nice.

            I imagine the garlands across Main Street are probably going up in the next day or so. They couldn't go up while the Parade of Dreams was still running, because Simba would have eaten them. As for hub decorations, they might not have had time to set those up, what with the whole filming fracas.

                I really hope they will be putting more up in the next week or so. It just seems kinda skimpy and cheap...like an obvious budget cut victim.

                  Yummy for Simba. LOL :lol: I can just imagine Simba taking a big chunk of the garland across Main Street. I know what you mean but it still sounds funny.

                    Ever noticed that the Disneyland at the end of Soarin is all decked out for Christmas? You can even see the garlands you are talking about.

                      Funny thing - the first time I rode Soarin' I thought that they put in a holiday finish at the park because it was DURING the holidays and chalked it up to another wonderful little bit of Disney Magic. Imagine then my disappointment when I rode it in early October and it was still all Christmassy looking.
                      I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

                        They haven't decorated the trees around the castle, in the hub, or in small world mall for a few years now. There used to be SO many lights in the trees. They also don't decorate the entrance to Adventureland, wrap those huge palm trees in Paradise Pier, hang garland from the castle's turrets, or put up that big star in Hollywood Pictures Backlot.

                          I thought that was the excuse for last year when running POD. Another rumor of the garlands' non-existence was that it would obstruct the view of R...DCT. It better be there this year!

                          But I also notcied that some stuff was missing. It wasn't too obvious but it just didnt feel finished.

                            When I went on Friday, the only decor on the castle was a tiny bit of garland stretched over the entrance and a wreath with pink bulbs on it. (I think they were pink)

                            It would be stupid of them to not put lights on the trees around the castle or decor on the castle itself. A lightbulb just turned on in my head! Maybe they didnt put lights on in the trees by the castle last year because all those strobe lights in the trees they used for R...DCT would get in the way. (Yes/No?) And maybe they didnt put garland up on the castle because of the mini pyro-blasts used during the shooting gallery part of R...DCT would be a fire hazard. Man Im on a roll today! :roll: (haha, get it? on a roll.)
