Christmas at Walt Disney World Photo Trip Report, Part Three - Christmas at Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios
DisneyDan  Monday, December 22, 2014 12:34:09 PM
Hello everyone,

This is the third part of my Walt Disney World Christmas trip report. In case you missed parts one and two, here are the links:

  • Part 1 - The Magic Kingdom
  • Part 2 - Epcot

    In this part I am going to share the festive fun we had at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Let’s start with Animal Kingdom.

    At the main entrance, the beautiful Christmas Tree welcomed us.

    On Discovery Island we met Mickey and Minnie in their Christmas attire, and Daisy was greeting in her safari wear, with some small little holiday additions - some holly and a candy cane striped scarf and ribbons.

    Up at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Chip and Dale were inside the building due to the rain, but they were wearing winter scarves and hats. They were so cute!

    In Asia, King Louie and Baloo were wearing winter scarves, and had a great backdrop with Christmas Trees and garlands with bananas on them!

    In DinoLand USA, Santa Goofy and his trusty helper, Pluto (who has bells on his collar) had a nice setup with their own Christmas Trees, too. Donald Duck was at his location near Dinosaur, and while his outfit was his regular one, he had a festive addition to his hat, and a candy cane striped scarf.

    It was really nice to see so many characters wearing Christmas outfits at Animal Kingdom - I just wish that there were as many at the Magic Kingdom (during regular hours), too!

    Now let’s move onto Hollywood Studios.

    Phineas and Ferb were at their regular location wearing Christmas hats and scarves (the same ones they wore at the Club Tinsel dance party at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which we saw in part one of this report).

    Santa Goofy was greeting fans on the Streets of America, and while he wears the same outfit as he over at Animal Kingdom, it was nice to meet him with a different festive backdrop.

    Hollywood Studios has some nice Christmas decorations, too, including a large tree at the main entrance.

    Of course, the highlight for me for Hollywood Studios, and one of the top things from the whole trip was seeing the Osborne Lights. I love the Osborne Lights, and was so happy to finally get to see them again having spent several Christmases at the other Disney Parks around the world. The lights are nothing short of spectacular. The colours, the way they dance to the music - they are simply awesome. No amount of photos can ever do them justice, but I’ll try nonetheless!

    I took some short video clips on my phone, which I’ll post below, but just be aware that the quality might not be the best!





    So, this report along with the previous two parts, we have now covered everything festive that we experienced during our recent Walt Disney World trip. I think I’ll probably try to make a final part to just share with everyone the other things that we did during our trip that were not Christmas related, but that might not come until next week.

    Have a great Christmas everyone!

    Dan.
