    Worst Christmas decorations/feature at the park...

    After seeing BDaddy's update, I have to say that seeing the "Elvis" impersonator added to the Dickens Carols is the WORST Disney Christmas feature ever. Perhaps it is the stupidest Christmas idea I have ever heard.

    People like tradition at Christmas. The Dickens' characters harken back to another age. They fit on Main Street. Elvis does not fit on Main Street!

    What is your feelings? Is there anything worse?

    The Dickens carolers also sing "Feliz Navidad" on a very regular basis. I find it disgusting too. It sure hasn't got a five part harmony like "Ring Christmas Bells."

    Personally some of the garland over in DCA made out of corn husks and giant bugs frighten me. Nothing says Happy Holidays like a string of giant insects.

    Re: Worst Christmas decorations/feature at the park...

    I know one of the carolers and I'll ask him about this. Is it an Elvis Christmas tune that they're doing? Maybe one of the guys thinks he does a great impersonation and just thought he would throw it in. It does seem out of character for what we would expect is the 19th century.

    For those who are confused about my post. DaddyB reports seeing "Elvis" with the Dicken's carolers. Here is a link to DaddyB's update. It is about half way through.

    Every year that I visit the park for the holidays, the Sign above the right tunnel is always blocked by the wreath. You can't read half of it.But as always it usually gets fixed. So it isn't terribly bad. It just is not done right the first time!

    I think one of the worst things...is the lack of any decorations in Tomorrowland....is there no Christmas in the future? My finances would appreciate it, but my spirit would not!

    The corn Husk decorations in DCA were originally Frontierland decorations, until then Disney mgmt realized they forgot about Christmas decorations for DCA the 1st year, and "borrowed" the 1 year used FL decorations.

    What about Fantasyland? am I the only one who noticed that they forgot Fantasyland?

    I kept thinking, maybe next week. It's too late now, I dont think they are going to put up anything but a few reefs. How lame.
