    Disneyland Christmas Tree factoids & info

    There is a great article in Westways Magazine about the Disneyland Christmas tree. They interviewed David Caranci "The man behind the tree" and he gave the readers an interesting peek behind the scenes.

    For instance, the tree weighs almost 12 tons, it has 70,000 lights on it and 2000 decorations - The electric cord powering the lights weighs 5000 lbs.

    We saw the tree from the tram ride yesterday. Although it made good sense, I was sorry when they switched to a fake tree.

    Re: Disneyland Christmas Tree factoids & info

    Initially, I was concerned about having an artificial tree at DL, at the fake one at WDW is hideous. But the tree that DL has now is pretty impressive. Not to mention all the special lighting that they can do on the artificial tree, that would not be possible on a real tree.

    My only concern now, is that the decorations on the tree look the same each year, now, with little variation. With the real tree, they could have a green tree or a flocked tree. Also the lighting sometimes varied from year to year. Hopefully they will use some different ornaments and different colors on the tree sometime soon.

    I read that article too! Very interesting that the tree goes UNDERGROUND 5 or 6 feet too! It would be so cool to see a time lapse of the tree being put up.

    I think it is because it is to make sure that it is perfectly balanced and not fall over.
