    Are Christmas decorations and shows and parades still happening the first week of January after New Years?

    Welcome to planDisney Marcia! 

    The holiday season is an absolutely magical time to visit Walt Disney World! I was at Walt Disney World this year both the week after Christmas and the first weekend in January and the Christmas decorations remained up throughout that entire time. Typically the Christmas decorations begin coming down the second week in January.

    While the Christmas decorations are up, I do want to note that Disney's Very Merriest After Hours will not still be happening in January. This event is held on select evenings between November 8 and December 21. It is held in Magic Kingdom and includes parades, shows, and exclusive snacks and drinks. 

    However, there are still plenty of Christmas activities to do when you visit in January! Make sure to check out all of the Christmas trees in Disney Springs! There are 20 Christmas trees throughout Disney Springs and they are each decorated with a different theme! My favorite was the Beauty and the Beast tree! You can also check out the Christmas trees at the resorts. I stayed at Disney's Pop Century Resort in January and their Christmas tree had a 1950s theme, complete with old-fashioned Santa ornaments.

    You can also check out the trees in all of the Disney theme parks! My favorite tree is at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
