    Will Magic Kingdom be decorated for Christmas November 9-11?

    Hi there, Kevin!

    Welcome to planDisney! We are thrilled to hear of your upcoming holiday vacation to Walt Disney World. With brilliant decorations, festive food, and characters decked out in their fancy Christmas costumes, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year.

    As soon as the festive holiday decorations go up, it makes me want to sing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go.” And the magic date for when I can sing that song this year is November 12th. That’s when the Magic Kingdom as well as the other theme parks will transform from their fall finery to holly jolly decorations. Gah, I feel like I just gave you a lump of coal since your dates for visiting Walt Disney World appear to be November 9th-11th. Perhaps you can add a day to the end of your vacation or simply visit the park on your travel day just to see the results of this stunning transformation!

    Given the massive undertaking it is to go from Halloween decor to holiday splendor, it’s understandable that they have to pick a date and just go with it! In fact, the Disney Parks Blog illustrates just how involved this process is with a time lapse video that highlights the Magic Kingdom during this holiday transformation. I don’t know about you, but this makes me appreciate the decor all the more after seeing this! 

    Kevin, please gift us more questions under the planDisney tree anytime. I’m sending you candy cane wishes and sugar plum dreams for your holiday vacation! 

    Happy Holidays!
