    My husband and I will be visiting WDW for our 30th anniversary November 9th-16th. We have park passes as well as MVMCP tickets. I was wanting to know when the other 3 parks start their Christmas activities as well as resort decorations.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Cheryl! 

    Happy anniversary! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate such an occasion than with a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. And what a treat that you’ll get to enjoy the most wonderful time of the yEAR at the most magical place on earth! I hope this visit is one to remember. 

    Cheryl, you’re in luck! It looks like most of the magical festivities will be all aglow during your dates. Here are the dates for the special holiday celebrations at each theme park: 

    - At Magic Kingdom Park the spirit of the season comes alive with the first event of the year, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, November 8th. 
    - At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Flurry of Fun begins November 8th.
    - Disney’s Animal Kingdom welcomes the story of Diwali—the holiday festival of lights in India, starting  November 8th.
    - The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays begins November 18th this year. But you might get to see some of the beautiful décor while you are still there. 

    I hope your visit is a very merry kick-off to the holiday season and an anniversary celebration more magical than you can imagine! Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back to see us again with any additional questions. 

    Wishing you a magical day,
