Christmas Decorations at the Walt Disney World Resort


The Walt Disney World Resort takes great pride in its holiday decorations.

Many of our clients as us when the Christmas decorations go up at the Walt Disney World Resorts, so they now the best dates to plan their late fall and winter trips.

MAgic Kingdom Front Entrance Christmas

When the park closes that night of the final Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, the Halloween decorations immediately begin to come down, and the Christmas decorations go up in their place. Cast Members must work quickly & magically adding Christmas decorations throughout the Parks and Disney Resorts each night. The parks will be decorated fastest, especially the Magic Kingdom to prepare for the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, special ticketed event. Typically within a wee the decorations will be mostly complete in the Magic Kingdom, with the resorts taking a little bit longer. The final night for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is October 31, 2016 this year.

The Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party begins on November 8, 2015 this year, so Cast Members don’t have a lot of time to transform the parks for Christmas.

(Remember, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) is a separate ticketed event and tickets for MVMCP can book up quickly so if you haven’t already purchased your event tickets, then we would highly recommend it.)

Magic Kingdom Christmas Decorations

Epcot Christmas Tree


Due to the filming of the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade, the Magic Kingdom Christmas tree will not be featured with the rest of the park decorations. Installation of the tree usually begins around Dec. 3rd but you can bet that when you visit the parks on November 6th – 10th that the Magic Kingdom will be still sparkling in all of it’s Christmas glory, Main Street U.S.A. will be decked out in it’s Holiday-best, and Christmas Merchandise will be donning the shelves just in time for this year’s Christmas Party.
