Christmas Tree ?

Does anyone know if the Christmas Tree in MK is up yet? We paid much $$ to attend MVMCP & the tree was not up yet. I would like to know if it has arrived yet. If it is up does anyone know what day it first appeared? It was not up on 11/10 or 11/11.

It was not up as of Sunday night. It should be up by Thanksgiving.

It is suppose to be up for the MVMCP's. This is the first time I have attended an early party that it was not up yet. By Thanksgiving doesn't cut it IMO when people are paying $$ to attend a Christmas Party. Anybody know a lawyer who wants to get refunds for those of us who have been scammed by Disney so far this year for the MVMCP?

Wow - I would agree that WDW should have the tree up. I just posted on another thread how peeved I am at these hard-ticketed parties. I have been to MVMCP and didn't feel it was worth the money. I wonder what people are thinking this year... anyone want to chime in?

Based on my experiences this year for all three hard ticket parties I will most likely not be attending any of them anymore. The AP/DVC discounts while decent are so limited that I"m not always able to take advantage of them on the dates I am able to attend. And I've decided that $50+ for a 5 hour ticket just isn't worth it to me anymore. At least when they used to officially close the park for an hour before the party you were pretty much assured that the others in attendance had shelled out the same money as you for the "unique" experience. This year there were many day guests camped out along Main Street hours before the first party parade. Some of the Wristband checkers I encountered were so busy carrying on personal conversations that I was obnoxiously ordered at least a 1/2 dozen times by the same idiot to show my wristband which I patiently did each time while dozens of other people just waltzed past him.

From what I heard, a certain TV personality wants to be located where the tree usually goes for the taping of the parade. In past years it's been set up in the rose garden near the castle, then moved to the town square once taping was finished. This year Disney didn't want to spend the money to move it, so it won't be up until AFTER the parade is taped! Please contact Disney and complain, as you have in this thread. We are all paying good money and deserve that tree up for the parties!!!

I do intend to write to voice my complaint. Personally I've always thought that the Parade Taping excuse for the tree being placed in the rose garden first for the past few years and then moved was totally ridiclulous. There are much better locations that the celebrity parade hosts should be sitting in than where the tree belongs. I was just looking for info regarding when the tree will actually make it's appearance. Since the parade won't be taped until almost a full week into December there are going to be many more complaints than mine. They are promoting all their Christmas events other than MVMCP as starting after Thanksgiving this year but after the parade taping for the MK Christmas Tree is totally unacceptible. I am one extremely unhappy Disney Guest after all the cutbacks this year. The only thing that hasn't been cutback is the price of admission. I'm seriously rethinking my planned DL DVC add-on.

It will be up basically the day after the parade taping. They use the town square area as the base for the parade taping, and they just cant have the tree in the way until then. Just the way it is, and probably will be unless they change where they tape the xmas parade from. They want the castle in the background, so town square is about the only place you can do it and still have the parade visible.

In order to sue, don't you have to prove that Disney stated the tree would be up for your particular party? Don't you have to prove damages somehow? Good grief, it is just a tree. It is not like they charged you extra for the party and then had no decorations and nothing else going on.

People really will try and sue over the most ridiculous things.
