Holy good golly! When we woke up Tuesday morning, Magic Kingdom’s Main Street was wearing her new holiday frock. And I totally love it!
Okay. So. Maybe Main Street is a themed land in a Disney Park and not at all a person who (rarely) changes clothes. But … it’s my blog. And I say the new fashion on Main Street is absolutely period perfect. Let’s take a look:
I. Just. Love. This.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I loved the old wreaths strung across the street. They were beautiful. And over the years, they definitely became a sort of touch point for me. They said, “This is Christmas! Christmas is here! Even if it is 86 degrees.”
But they really screwed up the view down Main Street to Cinderella Castle. And that is an even more important touch point. And they were just so … busy. In retrospect, Main Street seemed very cluttered and crowded with the stringed wreaths.
This, on the other hand, is a beautifully simple and clean design. The pristine white hooks and pretty scroll work feels very much like it belongs in the early 20th century alongside the beautiful architecture and intricately decorated shop windows.
Most importantly, you can see the castle. Holiday Wishes is going to look amazing from Town Square. And the Festival of Fantasy Parade will be able to continue its run as Most Epic Parade Ever … without Maleficent setting fire to the festive flourishes.
Overall, I think this is a smart (and necessary) update and a huge win for whichever arm of the Disney management octopus that worked on the holly jolly upgrade!
