What's happened to the Christmas decorations at Walt Disney World?
"Dad, I was just at Disney and I wondered what happened to the Christmas decorations? I just did not see as many Christmas decorations as normal, what's up with that?"

I have to agree with you, I noticed this last year when I was there for Christmas. The Christmas decorations for the Magic Kingdom are only on Main Street, there are not any back part of the park. Yeah, Dad's Epcot is the most Christmas-y Park page There used to be a stage set up just behind the fountains, which had a Christmas singing, live Christmas singing that they took away this year. There's not as much Christmas at Disney World as there has been in the past. Is there enough? Yeah there's still a lot of great stuff, don't get me wrong. But it's not as much as it used to be.
Why is it happening? It's a money I'm sure number one, it's a money thing. Disney is money grubbing, so they can spend $52 billion to buy Fox for some unknown reason. It's a money thing, and I think it's also a little bit of the culture. It's kind of Christmas is not as in vogue as it was a few years ago, so there's a little bit of a cultural thing. Maybe not, I could be wrong on that, but I know Disney kind of thinks along those lines.
Dad's Bottom Line
The bottom line is, you're right, Disney is not as Christmas-y as it used to be, and that's kind of sad.
