    Talking WDW's Getting Ready For Christmas!


    As the central Florida temperature approaches 90 degrees outside, Cecil Gordon of Walt Disney World Holiday Services touches up the face of a six-foot-tall angel tree-topper July 30, 2008 inside one of the resort’s holiday warehouses in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The angel will be placed on the top of the giant Christmas tree at the Epcot theme park during the holiday season later this year. Gordon and his colleagues are currently on round-the-clock schedules behind-the-scenes at Walt Disney World Resort, decorating more than 1,500 Christmas trees, unpacking more than 15 miles of garland, testing dozens of snow machines and repainting hundreds of animated and static holiday scenes that will be seen by guests all across the 40-square-mile resort. Gordon, from St. Mary, Jamaica, has worked for Walt Disney World for 19 years. (Garth Vaughan, photographer)
    As many of you know that I am very happy to see this because I'm a HUGE Christmas fan.

    I'll be there the 2nd week of December -- I can't wait to see all the decorations. I may just take 200 pictures of the castle lights alone!

    Wow, almost hard to believe they're preparing for Christmas all ready. But you know the folks down there, they have it all down to a science.
    Keep it cool, and keep moving forward!
