Disneyland prepares for holidays with 10,000 poinsettias and 10,000 cyclamen

As thousands of people flood into the Disneyland Resort to enjoy the holiday decorations, it’s hard to remember that this was once considered the slow season — a time when people were too busy shopping and cooking to think about theme parks.

Crews bring in 300 extra trees to spread around the resort, along with some 10,000 poinsettias and 10,000 cyclamen. The decor magically appears in early November – shortly after Halloween – and stays up until Jan. 6 each year.
