I think AK has to be careful with Christmas, because it's not so much Christmas trees and Santa in these continents, and it would look like Kwansa threw-up if you just put American decorations in there. That's why it's white or "vintage" style instead of red/blue/green.

This is an outside stand, it isn't Joe and Mac's apartment in San Francisco. The humans are waving their holiday in the Na'vi's faces. I would have been perfectly alright with a Na'vi holiday being present instead. But it seems wrong to have the human's Christmas.
There are no Na’vi. Either in real life or (perhaps a controversial argument) in the world created in Dak.

the decorations around the tree of life look very nice, combined with the puppet characters I think that will be a very special addition.

Everything else is just a big yawn and seems to just exaggerate what they have already done.
I'm sure that there's a lot more details that will be released as we get closer to the 'Holidays'. They've already ordered a boat load of unique Avatar merchandise !

Disney's Animal Kingdom to host New Year's Eve for the first time since the Millennium
The countdown is just on the Tree of Life and not also at the RoL arena? Yikes. The viewing area for Tree of Life is tiny compared to even DHS's hub viewing area.

They'd better quickly program a show at RoL. They don't need to create a story or new projections. Just have the floats circle around for a half hour before midnight cycling their SFX on and off in a low-key manner and then build up to the countdown. The projections can just be in psychedelic screen-saver mode.

It is a competition to see who has the lamer NYE festivities--DHS or DAK. I think I'd argue it's DHS, which phones it in and merely plays the Star Wars fireworks show you can see every other night. At least DAK will have something novel.
I used to love going to DHS for New Years.... my routine would be watch the last comedy warehouse shows, watch the fireworks which were really good and accompanied by a live band (mulch), and then go back and wander around osbourne lights pretty much by myself as the crowds dispersed. Those were the good days I guess.

I try to avoid Epcot on New Years because of all the drinking crowd... so it’s MK for me... which isn’t bad. I watch from behind the castle and then start the new year with 0 wait time for Snow White Mine train and other fantasyland classics.

We went to Epcot in NYE once a few years ago. Never again! The fireworks were awesome, but it wasn't worth it.
