    Hi! Were planning a trip to Disney World and would like to be there for halloween - do the Christmas decoration switch over on November 1st so we could experience both holidays during one trip?

    Happy, merry, holly, jolly, season's greetings here, Kyla!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I was so excited when I saw your question in our queue as I am always happy to answer questions from fellow Canadians. You have also picked such a magical time to visit with the World's Most Magical Celebration in full swing, and I cannot wait for you and your loved ones to experience it all. 

    I am also so excited to be answering your question today as the holiday season is my favourite time of year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. To answer your question, every year, pixie dust works its magic overnight and transforms the spooky Halloween celebration into a veritable winter wonderland. Indeed, every year, Guests wake up on November 1st to Christmas decorations throughout the parks, especially at Magic Kingdom Park. Now, Disney likes to go big when celebrating the holidays, so some of their decorations are installed gradually. If you would like to see how Disney brings this Christmas miracle to life, I would highly recommend watching Decorating Disney: Holiday Magic on Disney+. Personally, I always love visiting Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa to see the Gingerbread House and their beautiful Christmas tree. 

    Now, Kyla, have you heard the news? After two long years, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is finally returning to the Magic Kingdom Park, and I could not be more excited! On select nights, including the 28th, 30th and 31st of October, 2022, you will be able to celebrate the last few nights of the Halloween season with a spooky parade, fireworks, characters, decorations, and so many treats! There is no better way to celebrate Halloween than by dressing up, and did I mention you even get to go trick-or-treating around Magic Kingdom Park? These events require separate tickets from your theme park admission, so keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog or the Walt Disney World Resort website to know exactly when tickets go on sale. Then, it's boo to you and you and you and you! 

    I hope this was helpful, Kyla, and that you and your loved ones will have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out. Much like grim grinning ghosts, we love to come out and socialize! 

    Have a spooktacular day,
