    When does disney world switch from halloween to christmas this year, 2024?

    Hey Howdy Hey Marlly and welcome to planDisney!

    Marlly, there really is never a bad to visit the Walt Disney World Resort but the fall and winter are some of the more popular times to visit with Halloween and the Christmas Holiday season. Disney will go all out for these celebrations which are not limited to the parks and are some of the most Magical times to visit. Thank you for stopping by with your question on this transition between seasons. I will be happy to give you a little more insight so you can better plan your trip. Giddy up! 

    Disney is known for being so quick to transform the parks, especially Magic Kingdom, from Halloween to Christmas overnight. This Magical process happens after the last Guest leaves the parks on October 31st. Disney Cast Members work through the night to have the parks ready for the Holidays on November 1st. This process has fascinated everyone over the years and you can check out Disney Parks over on YouTube for a quick rundown on how this process goes. You can also check out Decorating Disney Holiday Magic on Disney+ which will give you more of the behind-the-scenes process of how this Magical transformation happens. 

    With the quick timeline of this process, it is possible for you to have one trip where you attend Mickey's-Not-So-Scarry Halloween Party in Magic Kingdom and then celebrate the Holiday season with updated decore on the same trip! It is a super Magical way to transition from one holiday to the next. 

    I hope this information was helpful as you continue to plan for your upcoming trip later this year. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical day,
