    We will be traveling to Disney World from 1/2/2017 - 1/10/2017. Will the parks still be decorated for the holidays and will there be any holiday special events going on that week?

    Hello Lori,

    What a great way to start the new year than by visiting the most magical place on earth! Walt Disney World is such a special destination where I am sure you will be able to create lots of great memories. So, thanks for coming to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question.

    The holiday decorations are one of my absolute favorite things about visiting during that special season of the year. However, historically, they begin taking down as early as New Years Day. It always amazes me how quickly they can go up and on the reverse, how quickly they can get all of the special seasonal touches down. You could possibly catch a glimpse or two on the 2nd, but I cannot guarantee that.

    In regards to holiday special events, those, too, are typically over with the New Years Eve celebrations. You can keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any special announcements of new and exciting happenings coming to the Disney Parks. Another great place to look is the special events page

    No matter what the decor, seasonal or not, I know there is tons of magic and pixie dust waiting for you and your family! Have a wonderful visit.
