When do the decorations go up during Christmas at Disney World

Hi,

I am planning on a trip to Disney World arriving on November 4, 2012. When do the decorations go up during Christmas at Disney World? I thought I had seen prior on your Christmas information page that the parks are decorated for Christmas in the beginning of November. Is that a good time to go to see it decorated for Christmas?

Thanks!

Debbie,

You've found Dad's favorite topic. Dad loves Christmas at Disney World. It's the most wonderful time of the year and absolutely the best time to visit Walt Disney World.

So when do the decorations go up during Christmas at Disney World? This year all of the decorations should be up by 6th of November. (Some of the hotel decorations might take a bit longer, but the parks should all be gussied up by then.)

The only things that won't be available in early November are the Candlelight Processional and the Christmas Tree in the Magic Kingdom. The Candlelight Processional starts the day after Thanksgiving and the Tree at the Magic Kingdom will go up after the taping of the Disney World Christmas Parade Show which will happen December 2nd through the 4th.

There is so much to see during Christmas at Disney World. The parks are unbelievable, the hotels are gorgeous, it's just a great time to be at Disney World and the first part of November has some of the lowest crowds of the season.

Dad's Bottom Line

Debbie,

All of the Christmas season is a great time to visit Disney World. From the November 4th until it all disappears on January 8, 2012, Christmas is the best time to be at our favorite place.
