    I'm travelling to disney world next year and I'm wondering when the christmas merchandise starts appearing in the shops throughout the parks? Is this before Halloween? And before the parka are fully decorated? Thank you!

    Hi Abigail, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    The Holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort typically starts the moment that Halloween ends, with decorations going up in the Theme Parks during the first few days of November, and decorations at the various Disney Resort Hotels in the following weeks.

    Based on my experience, Christmas merchandise usually starts to make an appearance when the Theme Parks are also decorated, which isn’t before Halloween. That being said, you can usually find Christmas tree decorations in several merchandise locations throughout the year. There are also two stores that are entirely devoted to all things Christmas all year, including Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Days of Christmas at Disney Springs. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
