    Are the Christmas lights lit up on thanksgiving night at downtown Disney?

    Hi Joy,

    Christmas comes early to the Walt Disney World resort! By Thanksgiving, the decorations are up throughout the parks and resorts, and many of the special activities are in full swing.

    You can expect Downtown Disney to be fully decked out as well. My family usually visits the first week in December, but we're going to spend Thanksgiving week at the resort for the first time this year. Like you, we expect to spend our Thanksgiving evening checking out lights and enjoying time together.

    Besides the decorations at Downtown Disney, you might seeing the variety of amazing decor at some of the resorts. We like to make the circuit of the resorts on the monorail near Magic Kingdom or the resorts around Crescent Lake near Epcot.

    Please let me know if I can answer any other questions as you plan your visit. I'm working on my plans for that week now,too. Enjoy!
