Countdown to Dismas: Chester & Hester’s Holiday

Remember that time I walked into Harambe and was totally shocked by the awesomeness of the new holiday decorations? (You should: It was, like, two weeks ago.) Well, I decided to continue my tour of holiday awe over in Dinoland.

I know. Everyone hates Dinoland. But I don’t. The theme is amazing and cohesive and, just like the decorations in Harambe, the decorations in Dinoland are absolutely the product of the story being told. To wit:

At a cheap, cheesy roadside attraction, what kind of holiday decor would you expect? Cheap, cheesy decorations, of course! Just like these fabulous throwbacks. They remind me of the decorations in front of my grandma’s house when I was really young.

They even took the idea of cheesy lights and plused it by bending the lights into dinosaur shapes. Perfect for Dinoland!

[[As always, you’ll find lots more photos on At Disney Again]]

The decorations around the areas used by the grad students and interns working at the Dino Institute aren’t as retro, but they’re just as cheesy, loaded with dinosaurs and cars (you know, the modern animals that “eat” fossil fuels created by dinosaur corpses … sort of). They’re also made with the typical stuff grad students have laying around, like mate-less socks and moldy fruit.

And their youthful humor extends into Chester and Hester’s Dinosaur Treasures in Dinoland, where things get real silly real fast.

And, best of all, if you look closely, you can see that the Imagineers made a few bottle-cap dinos, perfectly matching the new bottle-cap decorations in Harambe:

Love it!! It brings the cheap tinsel trees together with frenetic dino teeth and a hefty helping of holiday cheer. It’s so fun and festive!
