Disney Christmas Village
 
Look what I found on one of the popular internet auction sites. I think this might work for my village.

I'm planning to set up my village early this year. I will post pictures once it is up.

Anyone else do a Disney Christmas Village display?

I would love to see it and discuss what brand of buildings you collect and how you set it up.

These are the ones I collect.
 
Pictures are ones I have. I am looking for City Hall to complete my collection.

Those are amazing!!!! I wish I had those! Please post pictures once you have it up! I have a few, but they are just the Department 56 ones.

I have all of the ones you have with the exception of city hall. I'm starting to think it doesn't exist, I have actually never saw a picture of it just heard it exists. Have you seen it before?

sy1203 11-25-2012 04:52 AM

City Hall does exist
 
Here is a picture.

Yes, it is very rare. I've been checking ebay everyday for about 6 years and have only seen maybe 3 available for sale. There is one on ebay right now. Don't let the current bid fool you. It will sell for over $400.

How did you get yours?

Originally they were sold through the disney catalog. The only ones available: Castle, Train Station, Train, Park Benches. I purchase them all.

Then the next year the catalog did not have them. You could only get them through WDW Merchandise or the parks. I did purchase what ever was available at the time.

Finally, I got the rest of the collection on ebay. Except City Hall.

I purchased all but Casey's corner at WDW, I had to get Casey's Corner on EBay. I've looked sporadically on EBay for City Hall and never found one. Thanks for sharing!

Also I didn't get haunted mansion as I didn't understand how it quite fit in and I was mainly focusing on Main Street.

sy1203 11-27-2012 04:38 AM

After many years of searching everyday, I finally got it. :cool1:

So excited that my collection is complete!

Now to set up my village. I will post pictures as I begin the process.

eBay is your best bet.

sy1203 12-10-2012 09:11 PM

How to get Train Station and Castle
 
Search ebay for words:
  • Disney Main Street Train Station
  • Disney Main Street Castle
  • Disney Light Up Village
  • Disney Village Light Up
  • Disney Village
You will find them. Make sure to save your search then when new items are listed you will be emailed.

Good Luck!
