This week we are featuring photos from Hollywood Studios that convey a theme of "Christmas" and it certainly makes sense, given that the holiday is quickly approaching.

Before you even enter Hollywood Studios, you'll find this Christmas tree in front of the park and it's certainly a great example of Christmas in Hollywood Studios. In addition to the ornate decorations found on the tree, the base is designed with some great details that reference classic Disney short films about the holiday. It's a true classic.

With Disney, everything is in the details and this wreath found at Voyage of the Little Mermaid at first glance appears to simply be another wreath, but included in the wreath are some shells and other ocean artifacts and once again helps incorporate the Christmas holiday with an attraction that has nothing to do with it. Subtle, yet effective.

Finally, it's hard to mention Christmas at Hollywood Studios and not mention the "It's a Wonderful Shop" store in the Backlot Area of the park. The store, named after the famous holiday favorite film of "It's A Wonderful Life", sells just holiday merchandise for much of the year and outside the store features a snowman that is made out of plastic, along with plastic snow. Despite the temperature outside being in the 70's or even 80's in December, the store still invokes that sense of a cold wintery day somewhere north of Florida to anyone who walks inside.
