Photos: Christmas tree, holiday decor unveiled at Hollywood Studios

The Christmas season has taken over Hollywood Studios at Disney World a few days before the official start on Nov. 9, 2017.

One of the most beautiful areas of the park is the holiday decor around Echo Lake, complete with extra-large ornaments, colorful garlands and a giant Christmas tree in the center of the lake.
