Throwback Thursday: The Walt Disney Studios Park Christmas Tree

During the Christmas Season of 2007, a Christmas Tree appeared for the first time in Walt Disney Studios Park.

It didn’t look anything like the Disneyland Park Tree though and it wasn’t a big centrepiece either, quite literally as it was placed off balance in between Production Courtyard Stage and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

Over the years the Tree did return on various locations, last year it was placed in front of Disney Studio 1 on Place des Frères Lumière. However it didn’t return this year.

Throwback Thursday: Sleeping Beauty Castle vs Christmas Tree

In 2004 and 2005, Disneyland Paris entertainment decided to skip a world wide Disney Parks tradition of putting a Christmas Tree on Town Square by placing it right next to Sleeping Beauty Castle.

The decision was made so that the Tree Lighting Ceremony and the Castle Lighting could be integrated. However, putting the tree there was quite controversial on fan message boards around that time and eventually in 2006 it was put again on its rightful place.

Oh Christmas Tree…

Halloween hasn’t left Disneyland Park or Santa Clause is already moving in!

Friday night the entertainment crew worked hard to get rid of all Halloween stuff on Town Square and put the brand new Christmas Tree in place!

Unlike the previous tree which was re-used for many, many years, this new one features hundreds of decorations, including Disney-inspired ornaments!

Starting next week, a special 360° tree lightning ceremony starring (the voices of) Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket will light up Town Square!

In the mean time, check out this preview of the brand new tree:
