Magic Kingdom Christmas Decorations and Merchandise Arrive for 2018

Hi everyone!

Halloween has been replaced by Christmas decorations at the Magic Kingdom – not all are up yet, but a lot is – still missing is the garland replacement decor, the main Christmas tree and the two trees that Photopass uses for photos in Town Square. But almost everything else is up, including the trees on the Rockettower Plaza Stage for A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas. I will be adding more as it goes up! Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party kicks off on November 8th, 2018 – this will be the 12th year we will be posting about it. Look for both a photo article and a tips article after the second Party on the 9th (we will be at both). We’ll also have a Mousesteps Weekly Show all about the Party! Here are photos from November 1st and November 2nd as decorations are added – also I have some merchandise photos as well.

Today a new Mickey floral was installed – it is different this year, it looks like a wreath with ornaments. I really like it.

The clouds were gorgeous above the train station!

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party signage is up.

Town Square is looking festive. Candy Cane Lane signs went up today, but aren’t in this photo.

Here is the welcome sign from today.

City Hall.

Today the toy soldiers were added – they always make for fun photos. Chip and Dale were meeting behind them here.

There are a variey of different decorations as always, including these with bells.

The Main Street Emporium has all windows decorated for the holidays.

These decorations always remind me of dog ears.

The pair of Emporium windows on Main Street don’t have characters as they have in the past, but merchandise and trees.

There is a lot of Christmas merchandise and some displays inside the Emporium.

Donald Duck is wearing his winter gear.

Minnie Mouse sweater – I am not posting a ton of merchandise or prices because you can find most of it for purchase on ShopDisney. That is an affiliate link as well.

Here is our merchandise video and then more pictures.
