Disney Christmas Village 2017



Our 2017 Disney Christmas Village consists of 8 lit houses, working swing chair ride, a working carousel plus various figures displayed on the dresser in our dining room. I have kept the theme of the village to Mickey Mouse and his pals although the pieces were made by a variety of companies (Department 56, Brass Key and Mr Christmas).

Last year I allowed the village to take up more space and added my Magic of Disney Train Set to the layout. You can see the pictures from 2016 here. This year I decided to go back to the more simple layout for the Disney Christmas Village  using the large dresser without the train set. This means that the village doesn't take over as much of the dining room and I think it is easier to see and enjoy the detail of all the house and Christmas Village pieces up close.

The village began when my husband visited the USA on business and I looked for something unique that he could bring back for me. It was the run up to Christmas and I noticed the Department 56 pieces on sale in Sears and fell in love with them. Since then the pieces have been collected, usually a couple each year, mainly through Ebay both in the UK where they have been brought back from holidays to the USA and if I have seen a piece very cheaply in the US I have bought that too. It pays to check every now and again as this year I was pleased to get the Fab 5 Swing chair ride which I have wanted for years for around £11 plus postage. It was a bit of a fixer upper but is working great! As it was a second hand bargain it didn't come with the Pluto figure hence it is actually Fab 4! A video of the village including the carousel and swing chairs in action can be found on YouTube here. 

Happy Christmas!
