Let the Disney Resorts Inspire Your 2023 Christmas Tree Decor

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but it somehow goes too quickly, and before you know it, it’s time to pack all of the Christmas decorations away until next year. If you’re anything like us, you’ll already have a date for when the Christmas trees and decorations will go up in 2023, ready for next Christmas. But now is a great time to consider the theme of next year’s Christmas tree. Do you have the same theme every year? Are you looking for a new theme beginning next year?

There’s no place like Walt Disney World for the Christmas season. So why not take inspiration from the Walt Disney World Christmas decorations for your Christmas tree next year? Let’s look at the themes of the Christmas trees that feature around the Walt Disney World Resort, found in a Disney Park or Disney Resort.

Magic Kingdom

The giant Christmas tree that can be found on Main Street, U.S.A., welcomes Guests to the Magic Kingdom as they enter from under the Main Street, U.S.A. Train Station. It’s accessorized with gold bows in honor of the 50th Anniversary celebrations and candles and traditional colored baubles. The unique decoration to feature on the Magic Kingdom tree, though, is the popcorn garland hung from the tree branches like tinsel. This would make for a perfect movie-themed tree of your own.

Add pineapples and fruit to your Christmas tree to keep with the Magic Kingdom Park theme. These accessories are found on the wreaths and garlands that decorate Main Street, U.S.A., during the Holidays.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

The Christmas Tree that features in the very center of the lobby of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa has a traditional theme. The Victorian theme features pink, purple, light blue, gold, and white accessories, oversized snowflakes, swans, large bows, flowers, and carousel horses.

Gingerbread Displays

The Walt Disney World Resort is well-known for its gingerbread displays at Christmas. If you’re a lover of the festive treat, why not create your gingerbread-inspired Christmas tree? Let the gingerbread house from Disney’s Grand Floridian or the gingerbread carousel at Disney’s Beach Club Resort inspire your theme. Gingerbread ornaments, white accessories, and poinsettia flowers could feature on your tree with warm white lights.

Disney’s Yacht Club

This Disney hotel features Christmas decorations that have a nautical theme. This theme could be easily adapted for your festive accessories. Boats, anchors, life rings, and helms will pair well with blue and gold baubles. Finish the tree with navy or striped bows to complete a Christmas tree inspired by Disney’s Yacht Club Resort.

Take inspiration from the miniature village that features in the Disney Resort too. Create a miniature village in your home, complete with a train set.

Disney’s BoardWalk Inn

If you prefer more traditional Christmas decorations, then let Disney’s BoardWalk Inn inspire your festive decor next year. Red and white baubles and ribbons work perfectly with candy canes and blown glass ornaments. Wrap presents in red paper, finish with white ribbon, then place under the tree to complete the perfect Christmas look.

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

If you and your family love to visit Disney’s Wilderness Lodge during the Holidays, this theme should be the inspiration for your Christmas decorations. Decorate the tree with buffalo check ribbon, woodland creatures, antlers, miniature snow shoes, skis, and snowflakes.

Disney’s Polynesian Village

Disney’s Polynesian Village could inspire an alternative Christmas tree with bright colors and tropical vibes. Accessorize with purple, pink, yellow, and orange baubles, lei garlands, and hibiscus flowers. Add a couple of pineapples to the tree, and you’ll immediately think of a Hawaiian Christmas.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

For another alternative Christmas theme, let Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Animal Kingdom Lodge inspire you. African-inspired masks, dream catchers, safari animals, wooden stars and snowflakes, and percussion instruments will bring Animal Kingdom theme park vibes to your tree. Green and gold baubles could add extra magic to your tree, or use jungle-pattern baubles to compliment the theme.

Disney’s Old Key West

If you’re dreaming of somewhere hot for Christmas, you’ll probably welcome a Christmas theme inspired by Disney’s Old Key West Resort. Hibiscus flowers, fish, and sea life ornaments will team well with pastel-colored baubles to bring a taste of that island life to your home during the Holiday season.

Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Disney’s Contemporary Resort is home to the tallest Christmas tree in the Walt Disney World Resort at Christmastime. If you prefer a classic style to your Christmas tree, why not create your own version of the Contemporary Christmas tree? Deck the tree with multicolored lights and baubles, and use a large gold star for the topper.

Disney’s Art of Animation

If you’re looking for an alternative Christmas tree, you’ll want to take inspiration from the Christmas tree at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. You’ll need a white Christmas tree to create your version. Use multicolored lights to light the tree, and accessorize with brightly colored baubles, red and white ribbon, and surround with presents wrapped in colorful paper. If you’re feeling really creative, learn how to sketch your favorite Disney characters before hanging them from the branches. Alternatively, add some Sketchbook Ornaments to the tree to compliment the baubles and ribbon.

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

Like Disney’s Polynesian Village tree, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort features Christmas trees decorated with bright colors and tropical flowers. Create your own, using bird of paradise flowers, brightly colored ribbon, and baubles in purples, pinks, blues, and yellows. Add some feathers to your tree to create the look.

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Gold is the primary color that accessorizes the trees at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This is the one for you if you’re looking for an elegant and festive theme. Cover your tree with gold accessories, ribbon, warm white lights, and cream poinsettia flowers.
