Each year, the Disney Parks boast the overnight transformation from Halloween to Christmas on November 1. While this year was no different, many Magic Kingdom Guests were disappointed when they entered the Disney Park on Tuesday to find that the towering Christmas tree hadn’t been installed on Main Street, U.S.A.

TikToker @cyrusdoesdisney was at Magic Kingdom on November 1 and shared his thoughts on the missing Christmas tree:


Where is this tree!? #magickingdom #christmas #wdw #disney #distok #disneyworld #christmastree #disneyparks #waltdisneyworld

The video got thousands of likes and agreeing comments. “Not happy bob. Not happy,” @thatpixieplannerlife wrote.

“The magic of the 24 hr transformation.. and.. and.. there’s no tree?! I’m sorry what’s going on here,” @sapphireeeeeeee said.
