11/17 Magic Kingdom Christmas Decorations 2011, Contemporary Resort Gingerbread House Construction

The Magic Kingdom has been decorated for Christmas since just before the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, we already have 300 photos up from the 2011 Party, and here are my daytime Christmas photos!

Remember to follow Mousesteps on Twitter!

The bulk of the Magic Kingdom decorations are on Main Street, from Town Square to the hub. There are a few decorations elsewhere – including the Tomorrowland stage and Liberty Square. The gingerbread display is not yet inside the Liberty Tree Tavern, I hope they still have it this year!

These were taken over two days – I lost the light in the afternoon on Sunday, and we went back yesterday to finish the photos. 

We started out our morning yesterday with Tonga Toast at Captain Cook's inside Disney's Polynesian Resort. The Kona Cafe is known for Tonga Toast, but you can get it as a counter service option here. We always split a serving, adding bacon and breakfast potatoes.

I like that the Mickey head ornament is fuller this year. Often, designs from plants in the ground can be hard to see, but not this year. The ornament is shaped more roundly.

Last year, the Mickey holiday popcorn buckets (both for Christmas and Halloween) were rare and hard to find. Not this year! Plenty have been made to satisfy guests around the parks. We have both buckets, they are a unique and fun souvenir.
