    Hello. My family and I are planning on visiting WDW early November. I am trying to find dates on when the parks transform to Holiday decorations. Is there any information when this takes place? Do the theme parks decorate at different time frames? Thanks

    Hi Xochitl!

    Walt Disney World during the holidays is my absolute favorite time to visit!  The decorations are amazing and the extra activities throughout each park are so much fun.  We have a tradition of visiting each year to take in all of the holiday spirit around the "World".  Our annual photo with Santa is taken at Disney Springs!

    Holiday decorations start appearing practically overnight after the last Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  It's quite an incredible transformation that takes place.  The first Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is on November 9th this year, so you'll see lights, holly and garland sprinkled throughout Walt Disney World starting the week prior to that.  

    One thing we can't miss Cinderella Castle dripping in gorgeous lights.  It's a gorgeous sight!

    Happy holidays!
