Christmas is a magical time of year at Disney, and one great thing is that in the past couple of years they have started adding more holiday touches at a variety of attractions! While the parks have large Christmas trees and other fun decor, we are now seeing similar things pop up in the attractions. The Jingle Cruise, a Christmas version of The Jungle Cruise has become very popular the past few years. And last year was the first time at they did a Christmas version of Living with the Land.
Living with the Land at Christmas is back again this year, and it’s fun to see all of the little touches. For those of us who can’t experience it this year, let’s take a virtual look at everything!
When entering and exiting the tunnels, they are now strung with colorful Christmas lights. These may be a bit more impactful if you ride when it’s darker out, but still fun to see!
Lights continue to be found in various places throughout the attraction, including around trees or poles. During the day you can spot a Mickey head decorated with lights and reindeer nose, but he also lights up at night!
Of course, it’s not just about the lights. Towards the entrance to the greenhouse you’ll find a happy snowman family wishing you a Merry Christmas from Living with the Land.
Christmas wreaths are another common decoration that you will find in the greenhouses. In addition to your more traditional wreaths, be on the lookout for some that are made out of fruits and veggies!
It also seems like those working in the greenhouses have made it onto the nice list this year, because you just might spot some presents and stockings scattered around.
Though the additions to Living with the Land for Christmas are arguably fairly simplistic, I think they really make a huge difference for the season. It’s this that makes Disney such a truly special place – their willingness to go above and beyond to add some extra magic to things even if we don’t “pay” for it. I would really love to see other attractions with simple but fun holiday overlays in the coming years!
