PHOTOS: Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Christmas Tree and Decorations Arrive for 2019

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.

GF Xmas 19 Tree and Gingerbread House

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?).
