Epcot Decorations past and present

There are few changes in the main decorations at Epcot compared to previous years (see Nick’s 2012 post here).

The main tree had a leaning problem this year (a lot of large trees at Walt Disney World were leaning this year… Very odd). Not really noticeable in this photo… But truly, it’s leaning as though

Nick’a photos from 2012 are very nice, even though the Polynesian resort isn’t over the top like some of the other resorts…

Old Key West Ornaments – Holidays 2013

More ornaments! These are really cute and very well themed.

Old Key West Decor – Holidays 2013

We didn’t have high expectations for the decorations at Old Key West… our mistake. They were colorful and whimsical, very nice.

there were bird of paradise flowers on lamp posts – these are one of our favorite flowers in Florida (and even though these are artificial, they provide a great pop of color)
