Q: When does Magic Kingdom take down their Halloween decorations and replace them with Christmas Decorations?
A: With Halloween just a few weeks away, it’s no wonder this is a question that’s cropping up a lot this week with families who have set their sites on November/December visits to Walt Disney World.
The short answer is blink and you just may miss this transition. Mickey’s final Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place at the Magic Kingdom on November 1st. Up until that point, you’ll continue to see the Magic Kingdom all adorned in its Spooktacular finery. However, visit on November 2nd and its a slightly different story.
Nearly as quickly as the Halloween decorations went up at the end of Summer, they will promptly start to disappear at the beginning of November to make way for the Yuletide Season. The first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will take place on November 9th which means that the majority of decorations need to be swapped out within days.
Check out this official video from 2012 of Magic Kingdom transforming the night of October 31st from Halloween to Christmas:
Visitors planning to hit the parks for some early November Christmas magic should note that not all the decorations are guaranteed to up the beginning of November. Resorts tend to get their holiday finery up a bit later than the theme parks.
Those planning a late December or January 2018 visit should also know that when Christmas has come and gone, Christmas decorations will come down as quickly as they went up. Visitors to the parks in early January can expect a nightly dwindling of Disney decorations with the majority having been removed by the first weekend in January.
