    When does the park decorate for Christmas? Hoping to plan a trip next Fall after Thanksgiving.

    Hi Shalene!
    Thanks for your question and for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    There is no more Magical time of year around Walt Disney World Resort than during the holidays!! It just takes on this whole extra layer of pixie dusted awesomeness!! Both the parks AND resorts break out their holiday finest with no details left unchecked. From the world famous and amazing Gingerbread House at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa to the Holiday Carousel (made completely out of chocolate) at Disney's Beach Club Resort to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom, there is no shortage of holiday cheer going on for guests to enjoy. All of this Magic appears, as if overnight, not soon after the lights go dark on the final Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party of the season.

    The holiday splendor will most certainly be shining if you are planning to come between Thanksgiving and Christmas!
    I hope this helps and I wish you a most memorable holiday trip!!
