    How soon after Halloween do they start decorating the parks for Christmas?

    Hi Martha!

    Holidays at Walt Disney World are the most fun times of the year!  The decorations are AMAZING, and I love visiting just to tour the resorts and see all of the gorgeous theming. 

    Typically, the Halloween decorations come down right after the last scheduled Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party; literally right after!  As soon as the Halloween party is over, the Christmas decorations go up overnight in Magic Kingdom for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party of the season. Soon after, the other parks and resorts follow.  You'll be able to see the decorations the first week of November.  Here are some really fun videos on the holidays at Disney World; how they prepare and how they set up.  I hope you enjoy them.

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.  Have a magical day!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
