    We will be at Disney world Jan 4-8th 2017 and I was wondering if the parks will still be decorated for the Holidays. Also will any holiday events still be happening?

    Hi Melissa,

    I am so glad to hear that your magical trip is just around the corner. The beginning of January is a lovely time to travel to Walt Disney World as the crowds tend to be much less than the extreme crowds from the holidays just a week or so prior. So, you should be in good shape for a great time.

    Unfortunately, the holiday decorations will come down almost immediately after new years day. I am always in awe of how quickly the parks can be transformed so quickly. The holiday events also come to an end at the end of December. One event that will be taking place during your time there is the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend. So, please be mindful of this, as traffic could be affected by the races in the early morning hours. 

    However, I have no doubt that you will still have an amazing time making wonderful memories to last a lifetime. Feel free to stop back by with more questions if they come up.
