Disney takes over one home in Rome for the holidays every year.

In 2012, when James Mathy turned 14, he combined his love of art and Christmas to create a Disney dreamland on his grandparents' lawn for the holiday season.

"Part of the reason it started was that my great-grandfather worked at Trinkaus Manor in Oriskany and helped build the original displays that covered the lawn of the famous restaurant."

It started with just 4 handmade pieces - Snoopy decorating his dog house, Frosty the Snowman, The Grinch, and his dog Max. Mathy adds more each year and now has more than 100 characters from classic holiday and Disney movies.

"I have the Peanuts, Rudolph, Mickey and Friends, Pooh and all his friends and Dumbo. There is also a church with a 20-foot tall steeple, a Twas the Night Before Christmas house, a gingerbread house, and a cupcake house to complete the Candy Land Corner."

Hand Drawn Characters

Each piece is hand-drawn, cut out, and painted. Not a single piece, including the buildings, has plans or patterns.

"The neighborhood absolutely loves it. I talk with a lot of people who come by every single year to see it and see what new pieces I added."

So what's new this year? 35 characters, from Cinderella to the Toy Story and a nativity building.
