Every year Walt Disney World transforms itself into a Winter Wonderland, full of festive holiday spirit. This year will be no different.
Each park and all of the resorts will be decorated for the Christmas Holidays. The official start of the season will be the day after Thanksgiving, November 28th.
That is the day that Epcot will start its Holiday activities, including a personal favorite, the Candlelight Processional. That is also the day that Hollywood Studios will turn on the Osborne Family Lights. This link takes you to a previous blog on last year's lights: Osborne Lights
You can see the pictures below showing the lighting that has already been set up.
November 28th is also the date for the start of the Animal Kingdom's Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade.
The only park that starts its celebrations earlier is the Magic Kingdom, which starts its Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parties on November 10th.
So between now and November 28th, you will notice the transition, day by day, as Walt Disney World prepares itself for another wonderful Holiday Season.
If you wish to visit Disney World to enjoy the decorations and special entertainment, the early part of December is usually not too crowded. As you get closer to Christmas, the crowds build. The week between Christmas and New Year's is typically one of the busiest of the year.
If you have never visited during the Holiday season it is really something that you should consider doing. This is definitely a special time to visit and it differs greatly from a summer time visit.
