After the grand opening of the annual gingerbread house at Grand Floridian Resort and Spa last week, the hotel’s annual Christmas tree has arrived. The traditionally massive tree stretches to the upper levels of the resort lobby with all the grandeur of a Victorian mansion.
As we arrive inside the resort, we are greeted by the beautiful garland that hangs over the valet and drop-off overhang.
Once we walk towards the main doors, we see the white wicker deer lit up in the carpet of red poinsettia plants on the left and right.
Above us hang more garland accents as we walk into the main doors.
There, standing tall in the grand lobby is this year’s Christmas tree. As we can see, it fits right in behind the Gingerbread House.
The ornaments and accents on the tree perfectly reflect the Victorian theme of the resort, as well as some of the architectural features of the main lobby (does that white mini bird cage look familiar?).
As we ascend the grand staircase, brilliant garland wraps around the handles all the way to the second floor.
Here, we get a great elevated view of the main Christmas tree, as well as the smaller accent trees located near the monorail entrance.
Outside, the covered walkway that connects the main building with the DVC building also features garland and wreaths that continue the Victorian Christmas theme.
The main drop-off entrance for the DVC building has not been forgotten. Here, more garland hangs over the entry doors.
Support beams feature garland while small trees greet guests as they enter the sliding doors.
Inside the DVC lobby area, wreaths that also feature white swans are plentiful as the Christmas feel continues to dominate the room.
