Question Does anyone have a Disney Christmas tree?

I have been working for the last couple of years to have a Disney Christmas Tree. I have 2 trees to put up ( family and formal) already so why do I need another one. The Disney ornaments now go on the family tree.
We have spent lots of Christmases at Disney. When we start to decorate the tree Disney ornaments get the most attention and the memories are great.

The reason I bring this subject up is I'm planning on really adding to my Disney ornaments when I'm at Food and Wine. What is your fav Disney Ornament ? I would love to see some pic's if possible. I want to get them home safely ( we are driving) any suggestion ??

Disney Christmas Trees

We do two Christmas trees every year. Both trees are live. The five -six foot tree is just for the Disney ornaments. I have been collecting them for 13 years now. I usually buy one ornament with the year and another one that is fancy. Sorry I don't have pictures. Maybe this year I will take a picture of my trees. I just never thought to do so.

My ultimate goal is 4 trees. Lol. Seriously. Right now we have "normal" which has family, disney, etc and a fake palm tree that has "beachy" ornaments on it. However, I'd like Family, Disney (have MORE than enough to cover this), Formal, Beach.

I say go for it!!

I do an all Disney Christmas tree. I have spent quite a bit of money in the Disney's Days of Christmas at the Marketplace. DH hates to see me go in this store because he knows he's in for a long wait (and bill).

I always have a live tree in our family room with Hallmark/craft show/kid-made ornaments, but in the dining room, I have an artificial tree that is strictly Pooh and Friends. I have TONS of ornaments from Hallmark, plus plastic ones from Wal-Mart, Pooh lights, and tiny stuffed characters and clip-on heads from Happy Meals a few years ago. I even have a Pooh topper and tree skirt. I love it! If I can find a pic, I'll post it later. It cracks me up to hear my kids warn their friends, "That one is Mommy's tree, and it's very breakable. Don't touch it!" Ahh.... I've trained them well. I promise, I let them decorate and re-decorate the other tree all season long, but no one touches my Pooh tree.

My mum has a disney tree! It's about 2ft tall, and she has all the ornaments she bought in WDW and ones she ordered from a comany called Brooks and Bently. I'll try and find a picture of it.

She also has a Disney cabinet for all her Disney crystal and other ornaments.

We only have one tree, but we have so many Disney ornaments that for the past 2 years, we have made it almost entirely Disney. We get a new ornament or 2 on every trip, either from the DD Christmas store or in the resort gift shop. We like collecting the ornaments from each resort and one with the year on it.

I was wondering if anyone has had the ornaments personalized, and how long does it take. When we do the girls only trip for Food and Wine. I need all the info I can get to make the most of this visit.

We were just there a week ago. I had three ornaments personalized. I picked out my ornament and placed the order close to closing on the 21st at 11:00pm and there was a sign that said all orders would be filled by 23rd. I had mine sent to my hotel room so it arrived a day later on the 24th. I really like the convienience of sending it to my hotel room so I didnt have to go back and carry it around.

In addition to 2 formal trees, we put up a 6.5 ft green multicolor lighted Tigger tree. He has Pooh and other characters with him from the 100 acre woods. DH started collecting Tigger several years ago...it has really been fun to add to it over the years. We have thought about a 3ft black pirate tree.

I would pick it out at the beginning of the trip so they have time to do it....I was burned a couple of years ago when I waited too long and couldn't get it done.
