    We are coming to Disneyland January 19-25. Will the rides that have Christmas decorations (like Small World) be undecorated and open by then?

    Dear Savannah,
    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    A trip to the Happiest Place on Earth in January might just be the best way to start the year!
    As you may know, Holidays at the Disneyland Resort are being celebrated from November 10 through January 7.
    This means that at least during your January trip, the sparkly, whimsical, musical boat ride that is "it's a small world" Holiday will no longer be available.
    The same applies to Haunted Mansion Holiday.
    Generally, I've heard Cast members take up to a month to transform the attraction back to its original look. After all, each of those rides really gets a spectacular makeover. Guests walk out feeling as though they've experienced an entirely different attraction during the holidays!
    However, let's not get ahead of ourselves! With a little pixie dust, you may have a chance to experience the rides before your trip is over on the 25th.
    If not, I would suggest you make plans to return ten months later for the November 2018 opening of Holidays at the Happiest Place on Earth... Don't you think?
    Have a Magical vacation!
