At 60 feet tall, Disneyland’s Christmas tree towers over Main Street! Since 2008, Disney has used an artificial tree that is custom built for Disneyland in an effort to make its decorations more eco-friendly. This green Christmas movement has reduced Disneyland’s energy consumption on the Christmas tree by 50 percent. Disneyland’s Main Street, USA Christmas tree contains over 2,000 ornaments and nearly 70,000 lights.
At the end of the Believe… In Holiday Magic fireworks that are shown during the Christmas season, the tree is lit entirely in white lights that are “hidden” among the branches as snow falls on Main Street. It’s a really cool effect.
