Just inside of Frontierland during Halloween season you will see a large tree illuminated with orange Christmas tree bulbs and decorated with painted pumpkins. This tree is the Halloween Tree dedicated to Ray Bradbury and his novel The Halloween Tree. During the 2007 Halloween season this tree was added in honor of Walt Disney and Ray Bradbury’s friendship.
Ray Bradbury wrote in a letter to Walt after his experience riding Peter Pan in Fantasyland:
Dear Walt, I shall be eternally grateful that you made it possible for me to fly out of a child’s bedroom window in a pirate galleon, setting sail over moonlit London, past the stars and then on to Never-Land.”
Here’s another great article I found while researching Ray Bradbury and Walt Disney for this episode.
