Disney already getting ready for the holidays



As the central Florida temperature approaches 90 degrees, Cecil Gordon of Walt Disney World Holiday Services touches up the face of a six-foot-tall angel tree-topper inside one of the resort’s holiday warehouses.

The angel will be placed on the top of the giant Christmas tree at Epcot during the holiday season. 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.
