WDWNT Photographer Matt Paul braved the large crowds at the Walt Disney World Resort on Sunday and has some photos and videos to share with us from his trip:

As we enter the Transportation and Ticket Center we can see the Holiday crowds have already arrived.  The line for the Monorail and Ferry were both over an hour each

Another view of the crowd from the Resort Monorail

A view of The Seven Seas Lagoon on the way to the Magic Kingdom

The Christmas tree is now in place in Town Square, after the filming of the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade, airing on ABC Christmas Day at 10 A.M.

The crowds are picking up on Main Street

As we head into the Kingdom, we catch Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It! heading down Main Street

The performers in the Parade are wearing extra layers due to the temperature

Two fans of the Parade have even made their own costumes as they help out at the end

The Gold Card pin series featuring The Orange Bird was recently released

2010 pins now available as well

More 2010 pins

Check out this video of The Many Adventures of Winnie Pooh, produced by Matt Paul

As we head into Tomorrowland, the TTA has a whopping 10 minute wait!

And stretches all the way to Buzz Lightyear!

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is now performing during regular park hours

As we head into Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the It’s Tough to be a Bug Fastpass area is now set up for Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo the Musical, and Flights of Wonder

Here’s a video of Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade
