Disney “Fails” on Holiday Decorations, “Cheap and Uninspired”

Some Guests recently shared they were more than unimpressed with the state of holiday decorations at the Disney Parks.

The Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort are known to be two of the best places in the world to have that quintessential Disney experience. Each Disney Resort with each of its Theme Parks, Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World, and Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure in Disneyland Resort are beloved by Guests.

Going to a Disney Park is an amazing experience, particularly during the holiday season. Disney is known to go all out and make the immersive Disney holiday atmosphere perfect for Guests to enjoy. But recently, some Guests have been less than impressed with what they saw at the Disney Parks.

u/ChicagJim took to Reddit to share his disappointment, “Disneyland/DCA has really failed on decorations for the holidays. I’m standing in DCA and of what few decorations there are, most are not lit. Many are cheap and uninspired.”

Guests in the comments pointed the OP in the direction of Cars Land and Grizzly River Run, where they believed the decorations were pretty cool and they thought the OP would enjoy it. Some Guests even suggested the OP “head into the grand californian for the fireplace and piano playing” while they were at Grizzly River Run.

However, many other commenters also agreed with the OP. One u/dublt55 compared Disneyland Resort to Disneyland Paris, sharing:

I agree, after living in Europe for a few years and going to Disneyland Paris every October, then coming back to CA and going to Disneyland in October I was disappointed in the lack of decor. DLP goes all out with the Halloween decorations and the music loops in each land.

Some Guests even cautioned the OP, who had posted about Disney California Adventure Park, not to say anything about Disneyland Park, where Disneyland Christmas decorations are out in full swing, and you can see a transformed Sleeping Beauty Castle and many other breathtaking sights on Main Street, U.S.A.

Across the country in Central Florida, at Walt Disney World Resort, each Theme Park– including Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios– has its own unique Holiday decorations as well.

We at Disney Fanatic will continue to report on all Disney news as it comes to light.
