    How soon after Halloween, does Disney World decorate for Christmas?

    Hi there, Judith!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm more than happy to help!

    The Christmas season is definitely my favorite time to visit Walt Disney World Resort! The decorations and lights tend to add an extra magical touch to a vacation during that time of year. You are sure to be in the Christmas spirit after visiting, so I can see why you might want to plan your next trip around the holidays!

    Typically, the decorations start going up right after the first of November, and you can expect them to be completely finished decorating just before the Thanksgiving holiday week. There are tons of special events you'll want to check out like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party which is held on select nights at Magic Kingdom Park and the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. Some of my favorite things are the life-size gingerbread house at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and the gingerbread carousel at Disney's Beach Club Resort. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

    I sure hope this helps and please let us know if we can help further with your vacation planning. Have a magical day!
