If you’re looking for a different decorating twist for your Christmas tree this year, then you’ve come to the right place. Manager of Resort Enhancement Dave Caranci is part of the team that decorates the entire Resort for the holidays, and he’s always dreaming up different ways to delight guests with décor. Take a look at this how-to video to decorate Christmas trees with princess and pirate themes.

    WAY TO CUTE!!!!!!

  • My 11 year old grandson Austin, has a tree in his bedroom with all of the story book ornaments on it. He love’s decorating it, I think he likes stitch the best but there were no storybook stitch ornaments so we had to get normal size. It is really cute though. Merry Christmas to all!!

  • I already have a Disney Themed tree but mine is mostly Mickey Mouse themed. All of the ornaments on my 10ft tree are from Disney store. I’d say 75percent are mickey mouse ornaments, tiny mickey heads, and so on. The rest are the characters, I even have some ornaments from the late 70’s. I love the tree and on the bottom is a M.M. red tree skirt with the M.M. train going around it. Wish I could post a picture of it. But don’t know how to.

  • We happened to be at Disneyland when this video was being shot…saw all the beautiful trees and decorations and watched as they filmed. Disneyland is soooo beautiful during the Holidays! Happy Holidays to all 🙂

  • Thanks for sharing those wonderful tips Dave and Goofy! ºOº We have Disney ornaments sprinkled throughout both our family tree and the “children’s tree” that our 2-year-old enjoyed decorating this year. He’s our little pirate and I know he would LOVE a pirate-themed tree for his bedroom. We’ll definitely have to plan on that for next year! Happy Holidays!

  • All the Christmas trees in my house are Disney themed. 6 foot Mickey/Minnie tree, 3 foot Princess tree and new this year a mini Prep and Landing tree. It’s one of my favorite parts of Christmas to see all the Disney ornaments we’ve collected over the years.

  • I want to work for Dave !!!

  • Dave must be pretty brave to let Goofy work on a Christmas tree with him – have you ever seen him set up a home theater system!
