Disneyland's New Orleans Square is always charming and always intricately detailed in every nook and cranny. But at Christmas they really go all out and layer on some of the most elaborate decorations to be found in the park. The decorations change a bit from year to year, but they are generally in the same luxury genre and lavish scale. It may be Christmas, but there are still pirates to be found in New Orleans! Or in this case, a pirate band singing sea shanties with a holiday twist. The balconies above the alleys of New Orleans Square get lots of attention from the decorating crews. And the most famous balcony of them all, the balcony outside of the private Disney family apartment with Walt and Roy's gold initials placed into the wrought iron railings. New Orleans Square was opened by Walt in July, 1966, about five months before he passed away. This balcony is now part of the Disneyland Dream Suite.
