    Planning a return trip for Nov 1-9,2014. Will the parks/resorts be decorated for Christmas by this date? We are staying on site at All Star Sports. Can we visit other resorts to see the decorations? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Tina:

    Although subject to change every year, Disney typically starts putting up Christmas decorations and merchandise around the first week of November. By Thanksgiving, expect to see the parks fully decorated for the Holidays. In true Disney fashion, the decorations are generally set up at night, as if by magic. I can't guarantee that Holiday decorations, merchandise, and music this coming year will be up during your visit, but you may start to notice more and more Christmas and Holiday decorations every day where you did not see them the day before.

    The grandest Holiday decorations generally are put in place in the deluxe Resorts.  Feel free to visit other Resorts to view the decorations and enjoy some shopping.  We also take tours of the unique gingerbread houses featured at a number of the hotels and restaurants around Disney World, including a breathtaking life-sized gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.   The giant gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa has had an opening in mid-November during years past, so I'm not certain if the gingerbread houses will be up during your visit, but hopefully you'll see some Christmas and Holiday decorations.

    Enjoy your vacation.
