Anyone have a Disney Christmas tree?
 
I put up our Christmas tree and did the lights last night and the kids and I decorated it today. I've collected many Disney themed ornaments from WDW, Disneystore, Hallmark, and other retailers over the years. Although I have loads of other ornaments that have been handed down or bought over the years I decided to do a mostly exclusive Disney tree this year. We just went to WDW in August and are still talking about our trip so it's a nice way to keep the memories going. I also purchased the Disney's Magical Fireplace DVD, we had that on in the background while we did the tree. Someday I hope I we can go to WDW for Christmas, even if it's only for a few days.

When my dad was alive we had an exclusively disney tree. Tinkerbell is our tree topper. I had a little tree in the other room for our other ornaments. My mom gave me the tree after my dad passed and I moved out. I just put it up today.

I would say its about 75% Disney and the rest is mixed. I have Simpsons, Scooby Doo, Rudolph and some stuff from when I was little plus some stuff from the first year I moved and my roommate and I had our own little tree.

What I like about decorating the tree is when I see most of the ornaments I can remember the story behind them. Like this one we got at WDW, this one we got for my mom because she likes winnie the pooh. There is a muppet one that my mom drove to half the Hallmark stores in the states to find because I wanted it for christmas one year.

We have Tink on the top of our tree too!

Our tree is about 97% Disney. We've been collecting Disney ornaments for nearly 40 years, so we have a bunch of them. Mickey sits atop our tree. When we started collecting them the selection was limited and was very basic stuff(white globes with a kind of tape with the graphics on it). They really upped their game some time in the 80s. We've had to refrain from buying ornaments as we've run out of room on our tree. :earsboy:

I had a Disney theme tree too.
 
Actually I am very big on themed trees. I have 3 different themes, all stored in their own bins so my sons & I could decide which one to use each year.

The Disney one had a plush Mickey tree topper and all ornaments were either bought at WDW or were Hallmark. Even the skirt had characters on it.

I don't put up a tree anymore and I sure do miss those family Christmasses. Heck I miss my family, all I have left is memories.

We have a Disney Christmas tree. There are a few non Disney ornaments but it's mostly Disney. We have a Disney tree skirt, Disney stockings, Disney character tree trimmers and a Monorail that goes around the tree.:goodvibes

I have 2 Disney trees. Small 6 foot tree, decorated with round ornamets. Large 9ft tree with all my other Disney ornaments. Just finished putting them up this afternoon.

Once we have a house of our own, I'd love to get the Disney train and maybe start collecting the Mickey village houses. I also have 5 boxes of Santa Mickey dishes in the basement that I've never used. Just easier to keep them stored until we move. I'll have to break them out for the first Christmas in our new home, hopefully next year.

I have 2 Tinkerbell tree toppers. The fiber optic one I use on one of my trees but the other one is kinda creepy. DH and I agree that Tink's expression on this particular one is too Chucky to use! :scared1: We call it Kuh-razy Tink and keep it boxed.

I do have a number of Disney collection, DVC, etc. ornaments that cover an entire tree. Guests try and name the characters! :)

A good number of them on my tree is Disney but there is a mix oof other things.

Last night I went through the ornaments with ds2. He took all his ornaments for his first tree. (which we bought for him yesterday. He is a grad student with his first apartment this year) He was very involved with Beauty and the Beast at his high school so I had gotten him a boxed set and those were some of the first ones we picked out. A good number of his were Disney.

We have a Disney tree. Last year was the first year we actually had enough ornaments to fill a tree. I love my tree and my Niece enjoys it much more than my old tree (which was just red, green, and gold Christmas ornaments.)

Most of my tree is Disney themed. I have a large amount of Disney ornaments, Tinkerbell topper and Disney tree skirt.

I also have a Disney lamppost that I bought a couple of years ago

We have now started having a "Disney-only" tree. It's about 5 ft tall. The 8 foot tall holds all our other ornaments (& we have a small table-top tree with "I Love Lucy" ornaments.) I'm waiting until the weekend of Dec.8/9 to decorate, since I'm going to Disneyland for a few days before that.

(ETA - mrsheppo - I have the same Tink topper and tree skirt!)
