Photos are starting to surface of the Marketplace Holiday Decorations including the beautiful centerpiece tree with nightly lighting ceremony. Unfortunately these are daytime photos but waiting for nighttime photos!
good news and excited!

Just watched the new show at HS on themeparkinsider.
Love the finale for Jingle Bell Jingle Jam... and crowd seemed happy! Nothing will ever replace OL but I am happy to see some of the new holiday celebrations for WDW and DL this year.
P.S. Theme Park Insider really knows where to stand for pretty good video content to share online and they get it posted fast!

as it was described, I was really looking forward to this and was going to pump the kids up about it. Now that I've seen the video, I definitely will not try to sell this as exciting. It's very underwhelming

I think it will be more impressive when it's dark and the trees are lit up. Is it OL good? Of course not. Looking forward to checking it out when we are there, though.

I don't see anything that is stating this is a replacement for Osborne. Or a don't miss thing. Why is everyone coming down on it. It's just some trees displayed. Not a E ticket attraction. Just something in a shopping district.
It's just decoration.

I don't get the negativity. Sorry. Seems like many are bashing this....it's just some themed trees. Jeezz

Oh well....I know if I was in wdw instead of home right now. I would enjoy the trees a lot.

Yeah. I'm guilty of that too. But in perspective, any time Im in disney, even waiting 30 minutes for a bus at akl is better then being home. I try not to forget that.

I think it says more about OL than it does the trees. I think some people miss OL so much that anything new has to replace those lights. However, in your camp and have been wondering why the expectation was so high.

I wasn't thinking of it as a replacement for OL. NOTHING could replace the OL. I do, however, think that these "themed" trees are a little bit sad. They seem so small, although I realize there isn't that much room at DS for a lot of extra things. Like I said before, I've come to love the decorations at Disney, and these seem to fall short for me. It's just my opinion, and everyone has their own.

But I will agree - If I was in WDW instead of home right now, I would probably enjoy them a little bit too. I guess we will see in 10 days!!

It isn't quite what I thought it would be, but it isn't bad really. I know it would look nicer at night and I do like that they are bringing a lot of Christmas to Disney Springs! Silver lining and all
