O Christmas Tree

My tree is finally decorated, if a bit eclectically, with many of my favorite decorations. I haven't had a tree this big in ages, so it was fun putting on a random assortment of ornaments I've collected over the years. There are ones from my childhood and ones that represent places I've been or things I've done, and many that feature my favorite Disney characters. Opening up the ornament boxes and unwrapping each treasure is like taking a long walk down memory lane. I look forward to it every year.

Quote of the Week

As long as there's Christmas 
I truly believe
That hope is the greatest
Of the gifts we'll receive
As long as our guiding star
Shines above
There'll always be Christmas 
So there always
Will be a time
When the world
Is filled with peace
And love

- Belle, 
Beauty and the Beast:
Enchanted Christmas

A post shared by Disney Frozen (@disneyfrozen) on

Here's the official synopsis from Disney:

Retro Christmas at Hollywood Studios

I love the retro decorations around Echo Lake in Hollywood Studios. The lightpoles each have a lighted retro panel and lots of tinsel.

In front of 50s Prime Time Cafe, you'll find these absolutely adorable reindeer.

As well as a wonderful tinsel wreath.

Even Gertie the Dinosaur is decked out for the holidays with a Santa hat and an ornament.

And the umbrellas over the outdoor dining have been transformed into Christmas trees.

Finally, this year, the tree is in the middle of the lake, surrounded by floating, glowing ornaments.

All together, it's awesomely retro Christmas!
