Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree from the air

Aerial photographer Scott Keating recently took to the skies above the Magic Kingdom and has shared with us some views of the park dressed for the holidays.

As well as a view of the Magic Kingdom Christmas tree, we also get a birds-eye view of the recently repainted Cinderella Castle.

Happy Holidays!

Social distancing was a problem in only 1 line. The family behind us at ROTR was all over us. A dad and 3 kids and dad didn’t seem to care. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Good to hear. It’s weird not being there... I’m always at WDW for New Years!

Just left the Studios. Got in 7 rides in just over 7 hours with lunch and some shopping mixed in. Crowds were about what I expected for NYE. Mask compliance was exceptional! Going back after dinner.

Yup! It's likely due to the COVID restrictions that limit capacity.

My first time not being at Disney for New Years since 2004!

Not happening. Just like Universal and Disney could have increased capacity just for one day (today)
