    Will the parks be decorated for Christmas by 11/5/2020?

    Seasons greetings, Karen, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so glad you’re hEAR, and I can’t wait for you to celebrate the Holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort! There’s simply no place I’d rather kick off this festive season! 

    Though we don’t have the official dates for the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort just yet, we do know that the transformation from Halloween into the holiday season typically begins in early November. Last year, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party started on November 8, 2019. I was fortunate to attend this spectacular celebration with some of my dearest friends on the Disney Parks Moms Panel! From the holiday entertainment to the delicious treats to the beautiful décor, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy. So, based off of last year’s dates, I would estimate that the holidays will kick off sometime around November 6, 2020. You may still catch some holiday décor around the parks before that date, though, while the holiday transformation continues. But, for confirmed dates, I recommend keeping your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog for the most up-to-date information about the holiday season. This is the best spot for all the latest Disney Parks news! 

    One of my favorite things to do during the Holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort is to visit Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa – you won’t believe the sight (and smell!) of the gorgeous Gingerbread House there! Be sure to stop by to grab a Gingerbread Shingle or some Gingerbread Cookies – you won’t be disappointed!

    Please stop by with any additional planning questions, Karen! We’re all EARs!

    Wishing you a very merry visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
