As I mentioned before, the vast majority of yuletide presence at Shanghai Disneyland occurs in the first two lands guests encounter when they enter the park--Mickey Avenue and Gardens of Imagination. At the Gardens, the Christmas decorations are mainly limited to a towering Christmas tree that dominates the skyline alongside the Enchanted Storybook Castle and the Fantasia Carousel. At night, the tree takes on a vibrant life with a diverse series of lighting schemes that seem to mimick the changing lights over the neighboring carousel. It makes for quite a magical and peaceful scene, especially since the park clears out pretty quickly (thanks to a rather firm and expedient security sweep of everyone into Mickey Avenue). Here are a few shots from various locations around the Gardens of Imagination for your holiday enjoyment. Shanghai Disneyland certainly is pretty!
