    Hello. I was wondering for the Halloween 2020 season when WDW will take down the Halloween decorations for this year. Is there any to see the Halloween and Christmas decorations in the same week when visiting WDW?

    Hi, Drew!  Welcome to planDisney!

    Is there anything better than a Walt Disney World Resort holiday celebration?  The only question in my mind is which holiday season I love the most.  I can never decide between the frightfully fun Halloween festivities and the warm and cozy joy of the Christmas season, so I like the way you think, Drew.  Why not try to experience both holidays during one vacation?!  During the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort, holiday celebrations may look a bit different from what we're used to, but the magic will still be there. 

    It was recently announced that Guests can "fall" into fun at Magic Kingdom Park beginning on September 15, 2020.  Main Street, U.S.A. will be adorned in fall decor, and this year, Guests will be permitted to wear their Halloween costumes during regular park operating hours.  There will be plenty of Halloween-themed treats to try, as well as some thrilling entertainment experiences.  These ghostly good times will take place through October 31, 2020. 

    As October gives way to November, it will begin to look a lot like Christmas around Walt Disney World Resort.  From November 6, 2020 to December 30, 2020, holiday magic will fill the air as Guests enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful decor, themed merchandise, holiday entertainment, and seasonal food and beverage offerings throughout Walt Disney World Resort.  Be sure to be on your best behavior, because Santa Claus will be popping up in The Most Magical Place on Earth to bring holiday cheer to all.

    While we don't know the exact dates that the Halloween decorations will be put away and the holiday finery will appear, if you visit from Halloween through the first weekend in November, you should be able to experience the magic of both holidays.  Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest news on holiday happenings throughout the resort.

    Wishing you a spook-tacular Halloween, a very merry Christmas, and a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
