RED Stuff at Christmas Time in Disney’s EPCOT
(a Ruby Tuesday post)

I’m sort of grumpy because I was supposed to spend a 4-day weekend in Orlando and should be about driving home by now, but an injured foot precluded the idea of tramping around the parks. And so, I console myself this Ruby Tuesday by looking at photos of Christmas past in EPCOT.

IMG_3611 You may recall that I’ve recently published photos of the Lights of Winter at EPCOT. Today I’ve got just a few scenes from around the World Showcase.

Here we have Father Christmas. I found him telling stories to children of all ages in “France”. I find him kind of attractive, in a Richard Gere sort of way 😉 In fact, the day this photo was taken, I found either Santa or a Santa equivalent telling stories in nearly every country – even Morocco!


Here we are in “Germany”. There’s something about this beam-and-batten, Tudorish architecture that is eminently suitable for Christmas decorations.

But wait – there’s more! This isn’t even the best part of Christmas in “Germany”…


The best thing about “Germany” is the model trains, and at Christmas time, this little Bavarian Alps village is all done up for Christmas. There are tiny, decorated pine trees and wreaths everywhere. Here is the village square; the church and other buildings are all festooned with garland, and even the light post is decorated. But wait – there’s even MORE!

IMG_3638It’s the be-ribboned train station, looking just as festive as the town square. OH! What’s that on the roof? Could it be…. SANTA? I think it just might be! But what’s he doing landing on the roof of the train station? Perhaps someone lives there, in the apartment upstairs from the waiting room. Yes, that must be it!

In World Showcase Plaza, right at the end of the promenade, there’s a giant Christmas tree with lights blazing, and giant presents set underneath it. Here’s a giant tag on one of the giant presents. I love the use of the candle’s halo for the “o” in EPCOT.

I feel a little better now that I’ve reviewed the pictures of what I missed this weekend. There’s always next year to spend a little of the holiday time in Walt Disney World. Until then, I can plan and dream!

  1. I love the German Christmas motif. Christmas has the real classic look in an older world country, celebrated for centuries. Happily, Santa has his own sleigh and not dependent on the rails to make his rounds. If Santa was forced to take the LIRR or Metro North and their inconsistent schedules, the delivery would be complete in March!

  2. Great shots. I would love to see the trains. We’ve been to Disney World twice, both in the summer. I think Christmas would be a great time to visit again.

  3. Hope your having fun and if you see Bad Elves during this Christmas trip, give them a big hug from me.

  4. I hope you’re feeling a little better right now, so sorry you had to miss out on the fun! That looks like a wonderful exhibition Tink!

  5. a very regal looking Father Christmas – and so thin 🙂

    sorry about your injured foot, I can relate. Hope you are back in tip top shape very soon.

  6. Lots of great red at Disney! My sister-in-law used to (maybe still does) set up elaborate trains/mountains/etc. for Christmas. One day maybe I can unpack and dig out a photo. Sorry, to hear you hear your foot. What luck!
