The Disneyland Park
Where better to start than just inside the main entrance with Main Street Station. As you can see the decorations used are bright, colorful and designed to withstand a harsh winter.
Next we find ourselves in Town Square, for those of you who have never been to DLP you will feel right at home here. On a bright sunny day in the summer you could easily be in Florida or California. The winter though is a different story. The day I took the photographs I was in luck, it was a glorious day, a little cold though, only 42F, notice how well people are wrapped up.
Town Square has a huge tree, unfortunately it's not real, strange really as we are very close to so many forests. You can see the details of the decorations in the close-up.
You can probably also see a strange looking arch spanning across Main Street USA. This set-up is also used at EPCOT at Christmas. It is a set of illuminated arches that span Main Street from Town Square to the hub. Here are some more photos of the arches. They do spoil the view a little, but give a stunning display at night (more about that later).
I'm sorry to say that is the end of the decorations around the park, but there are a number of smaller displays inside some food outlets and shops. Here you see a Christmas Tree in the Frontierland Fuente del Oro Restaurant, and a Pooh Christmas Tree in the Main Street Motors store.
