Christmas Trees at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

We thought Christmas Day would be the perfect day to continue our ongoing series featuring beautifully decorated trees from around Disney Parks.

This year, we’re focusing on the trees specifically found at the resorts during a visit to Walt Disney World. Each year, my family visits as many of our resorts as we can to see these trees and the amazing holiday decorations.

Look as Tri-Circle-D Ranch Preps for the Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration!

posted on December 24th, 2014 by Mark Beatty, Worldwide Ranch Animal Operations Manager


Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is one of the best-kept secrets at Walt Disney World Resort (until now!). At the Draft Horse Barn, one of four stable areas and just a short walk from Pioneer Hall, guests can see a variety of horse breeds and learn more about the many horses in Disney history. While the Draft Horse Barn houses up to 30 horses, ranch cast members care for 80-90 horses at any one time! These horses can be seen in various locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort and the local community. Did you know horses from Tri-Circle-D Ranch are featured in Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park? In addition, local parades like the Citrus Bowl and the Christmas parade in the city of Winter Park, Fla. also feature Tri-Circle-D Ranch horses.

Just like we would prepare for a special event or outing, a great deal of time is spent preparing the horses for these fun events. The horse below, Khan, is getting a morning bath and then had his mane hair braided to give it a nice fluffy look.

Most recently, the horses from Tri-Circle-D co-starred in the Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration!

Don’t forget to visit Tri-Circle-D Ranch during your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort. All guests are welcome to enjoy the outdoor activities including pony rides for the younger travelers and trail rides for the older kids and “kids at heart”! Old-fashioned, horse-drawn wagon, carriage and sleigh rides also allow relaxing time spent in the great outdoors. Call 407-WDW-PLAY to schedule advanced reservations. If you’re feeling spontaneous, call 407-824-2832 for same day reservations.

Happy Holidays and we hope to see you soon!
