Christmas truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year at Walt Disney World. The parks are filled with millions of sparkling lights, enormous Christmas trees, the sounds and smells of the holidays, and it even snows on Main Street, U.S.A.! Each year Disney puts so much work into making the Most Magical Place On Earth even more magical for the Christmas season. Let’s take a look at some of the numbers that go into this spectacular feat.

  • The holiday decorations for all 4 parks, 27 resorts, and Downtown Disney fill 150 semi-trailer truckloads.
  • There are 8.5 million Christmas lights decorating Walt Disney World.
  • Walt Disney World pastry chefs create 6 life-sized gingerbread creations for the celebration.
  • 300,000 yards of ribbons and bows can be found decorating the 1,300 Christmas trees of Walt Disney World.
  • Throughout the holiday season, over 200 choirs perform in Epcot’s Candlelight Processional.
  • The Magic Kingdom Christmas tree is 26 feet wide at its base.
  • The Osborne Family Spectacle Of Dancing Lights utilizes 10 miles of rope lights.
  • Hung throughout Walt Disney World are 15 miles of garland and 1,314 wreaths.
