    We are planning trip from UK for November 2012. Can anyone advise if all the parks have christmas decorations and if so, do they all do this from same date or are dates staggered? Any dates for all DIsney parks for 2012 xmas yet?

    Hi Julie,

    All of the parks and resorts will be decorated for Christmas and the other winter celebrations. You need to base your trip around the United States' Thanksgiving as this is the first date all of the decorations are completed. Magic Kingdom is the last to be decorated the night before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving in 2012 is November 22.

    Thanksgiving week is a crowded week in the park. You can arrive the week before you will see most of the decorations as there is a lot of magic to have happen. 

    I also will tell you to have some meals in the resorts as this is the best way to see the decorations.

    Calendars for any given time period roll out about 4-6 months prior. Begin looking for holiday information in the summer.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
