I have an "exclusively Disney" tree that I put in our den. It has a Tink topper and all Disney ornaments.

Then I do the other tree in the livingroom that has all the other ornaments (heirloom ones or those that I like that are not Disney) on it.

My husband says I have "issues" with Christmas ornaments. I have a lot of them.

You mean to tell me that there are other kinds of Christmas trees? LOL

We used to put up two trees. Now we have one and it's just Disney themed.

The fiber-optic Tink is the topper. Every year we pick up a few more ornaments while in WDW. We also have quite a few Hallmark ones too.

We're a Disney family and we all love it.

We have a mostly Disney tree. About 75% of the ornaments are Disney, the star on top has Mickey and Minnie sitting on it and we have a personalized Disney treeskirt.

We also have personalized Disney stockings, a hidden mickey advent calendar and various other Disney decorations.

I just put the Disney tree up in my master bedroom Saturday. I, too, have the Tinkerbell topper. Christmas tree ornaments are my favorite souvenirs!

Oh, I wanted to share an idea for decorating your Disney trees. When my son was younger, he had a can of those green army men from Toy Story. I now use them on the tree. I have them hanging down from the lower branches of the tree!

Absolutely, every year. We put a tree in our living room with Hallmark Disney ornaments and Disney ornaments we have collected from Disney World over the years. It is "full" of ornaments. We also have another non-Disney tree in our family room.

I have a tree with ornaments I've collected from all my Disney trips, as well as some other ornaments. I have the mouse king ornaments from The Nutcracker. Seems kinda fitting on a Disney tree. lol

Here it is:





Don't know why the pics show sideways, but that's it. The second is a close up of some of the ornaments from Disney.

Love it!

I would love to see a picture of your "Lucy" tree! I am a huge fan of I Love Lucy. I have several Lucy ornaments on our tree, but now you've got me thinking of doing a small tree with just Lucy ornaments next year.

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.
This stuck with me. I hope you have a happy Christmas.

Our tree is being Disney-fied slowly over time. We add 3 ornaments each year. 1 foe ds6, 1 for ds3, 1 for dw & myself. The last few years have been all Disney. The boys pick their own ornament, but we have been able to steer them towards Disney.

Ds5 has picked Lightening McQueen, Prep & Landing, Spiderman(sad it wasn't disney, but now I can count him as Disney lol), and this was Jake.

Ds3 has picked Mickey&Minnie in santa outfits and this year was a collection of 5 small Jake & the Neverland Pendants that we glue to a standard ornament.

DW & I have picked a 2010 Mickey Ears Ornament, a 2011 Disney Photo Frame Ornament, & this year picked a Mickey Ears Ornament that has the major symbol of each park carved into it.

We are finally hitting the stage were we have so many ornaments we stop putting up ornaments with no significant meaning. Also, the tree will never be 100% Disney. There are just some ornaments that are meaningful to us that we won't give up. However, can very easily see an 85% Disney tree in the future. The fun part is the collecting over time though.

Also, our Christmas Village is Disney-fied as well. About half our buildings are Department 56 Disney buildings with the figures to go with them.
