Have you wondered how Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom can transform Halloween Haunts to a Winter Wonderland over night? Check out this amazing video, and learn how decorations have been reimagined in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Magic Kingdom.
Halloween to Christmas
Last year’s holiday offerings were very scaled back compared to previous years. There was no Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and no Candlelight Processional were just a few of the ways Disney cut back in 2020.
This year we already see decorations being hung in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. These decorations were hung with care weeks before Halloween. Guests also noticed decorations beginning to be hung around Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The changing of decorations in Magic Kingdom is a bit more magical.
It is amazing to think that as the last Guests exit Magic Kingdom on Halloween night that a full transformation will take place in the middle of the night. Whole crews of Cast Members descend on this magical park to completely transform the Park overnight.

Christmas Decorations 2021
This year the holiday decorations received an EARidescent reimagining in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World. After the Halloween season, the customary Mickey Mouse pumpkins that line Main Street were traded in for golden Cinderella carriages.
This year many of the decorations have received a polished look with golden accents and an EARidescent shine. It truly looks lovely with the reimagined paint design and embellishments of Cinderella Castle.

Take a look at this time lapse video from Twitter showcasing the Cast Members hard at work though the final hours of October 31st into the early morning of November 1st.
It is simply amazing to see the assembling of the massive tree that greets Guests as they begin to make their way towards Main Street USA.
Guests visiting the Magic Kingdom will also be able to enjoy the fun holiday overlay of the Jingle Cruise in Adventureland. Starting next week, Magic Kingdom will begin hosting Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours event on select nights.
