    I will be at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Jambo house Nov 10-18. Will Christmas decorations be up?

    Hi Debbie, and welcome to planDisney!

    The holidays are a fantastic time to visit Walt Disney World Resort, and the fact that you will be enjoying a stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge will make the experience even more magical. If you have a room with a savannah view, I can only imagine the peacefulness you will enjoy as you watch the animals roam as the sun comes up. It is truly a great time to soak in the holiday spirit while enjoying the unique African theme of this resort.

    The holiday season is scheduled to begin on November 11 and end on December 31, 2023. While there are currently no dates listed as to when the decor will begin, we can expect that not long after the Halloween season ends, the Christmas decor will appear almost overnight. This means there is a chance that you will be able to experience the holiday decorations by the time you arrive. Sending loads of pixie dust your way.

    Be sure to keep an ear out for the Disney Parks Blog because any news regarding the holiday season will appear there. 

    Please let us know if you have questions before your arrival; we are happy to help.

    Have a magical holiday!
