    I was just wondering what date do you start setting up for Xmas with the decorations etc?

    Hey there, hi there, Michele! Welcome to planDisney. You've brought us a great question!

    It sounds like you are trying to plan a trip to The Happiest Place on Earth in November and I think that this is an excellent idea! There is no merrier place than Disneyland during the holiday season. We usually don't know the exact dates when they start decorating for the holidays, but it usually starts happening as soon as the Halloween decor comes down. I was looking back at my photos from this past holiday season and I can say that I was there at the end of the second week of November and the holiday decor was in full effect.

    That also happened to be the first day of the Disney Festival of the Holidays, which is our family's favorite festival. This takes place at Disney California Adventure Park and has marketplaces set up all throughout the park with delicious bites and drinks. There is entertainment, including some really fun bands and our favorite characters in their best holiday attire. It really is so much fun. Another place not to miss in Disney California Adventure Park is Cars Land. The decor here is always the best throughout the parks in my opinion. The cleverness of the decorations just can't be beaten. 

    My advice would be to keep your eye out for announcements on Disney Parks Blog. They will for sure make an announcement if the Disney Festival of the Holidays is returning, along with a Foodie Guide for the holidays and more information about what will be happening that will help you prepare.

    Michelle, I hope this helps you make plans for a November trip so you can experience all the magic of the holiday time at Disneyland Resort.
