Holiday Decor Begins to Arrive at Disney World

Holiday Decor Begins to Arrive at Disney World

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Halloween is over, and that means holiday decor is beginning to arrive at Disney World.

Decorating the parks and resorts for the holidays requires a lot of time and effort. Crews begin working months in advance on many decorations, including the incredible gingerbread displays.

Plus, we all know Magic Kingdom magically transforms overnight from Halloween to Christmas with the help of the Fairy Godmother! It truly is incredible how quickly Disney World turns into a winter wonderland.

With Halloween almost officially over (there’s one more MNSSHP tonight!), it’s time to start getting into Christmas mode. Elsewhere around property, we are seeing decor begin to arrive.

During the holidays, Hollywood Studios transforms into glitz and glamour! Old Hollywood during the holidays comes alive with vintage decor and nostalgic tinsel.

Every year I visit, I look forward to seeing the huge tree, tinsel stars on Sunset Boulevard, and the Santa hat on Gertie! And, I’m happy to share that these decorations are already beginning to pop up in the park!

Right now, Sunset Boulevard is decked out with the tinsel stars. These red and white stars are fixed to the lampposts that run down to the Hollywood Tower Hotel.

So far, this is the only holiday decor we see in Hollywood Studios. However, that will soon change as Jollywood Nights begin next week! Read all the latest about that new event HERE.

What to expect at other locations

All signs of Christmas are still absent at Magic Kingdom. As I mentioned above, there is still one more Halloween party this evening. If you are planning to visit tomorrow, November 2, you should definitely expect to see some Christmas decor!

Animal Kingdom and Epcot will probably still remain absent of holiday decor for the next few weeks. Because Festival of the Holidays does not begin until after Thanksgiving, they are not in much of a hurry.

We do know that the gingerbread display is being constructed at the Grand Floridian as we speak! It is expected to be complete by the end of this week. And, the store should open later next week!

Other resorts will follow, and you can expect them to be decorated by the end of this month.
