This year, more than 15 miles of garland, 1,300 Christmas trees and 1,314 wreaths brightened up Walt Disney World Resort for the holidays – with one area, New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park, decorated for the season for the first time.

Check out our behind-the-scenes look with Holiday Services Decorator EJ DeYoung, who shares how new decorations were created just for this area.


  • We were just there, and it looks so beautiful at night! Be Our Guest is decorated beautifully as well.

  • Why wasn’t Under the Sea~Journey of the Little Mermaid and Prince Eric’s Castle and village decorated for the holidays? It is a big part of New Fantasyland too, so I was curious as to why only the Beauty and the Beast areas were decorated.
