When does Disney World remove the Christmas decorations?

Walt Disney World is famous for its nocturnal Christmas decorating session the night after October 31st. The Magic Kingdom’s Halloween decor is animated at lightning speed, and Christmas is put on at an equally amazing pace. But when do the Christmas decorations come out in Orlando? The answer is consistent, but not necessarily as fast.

The famous night décor session by Imagineers at the Magic Kingdom is something to watch. Attending a Not-So-Scary Halloween party or Boo Bash on Halloween and then returning the next morning to celebrate the hype is something Disney fans should put on their list. The video below shows the lightning speed with which the garden is being stripped and redecorated.

As the holidays go by, you’ll generally be able to enjoy all the Christmas and winter decorations at Walt Disney World Resort even after New Year’s Day. The first Monday after the new year is when the decoration will slowly begin. First things to go are Christmas tree centerpieces in the resort’s hotel lobby or exterior decorative accents around January 3 or 4. Next, the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Path will be filled in.

Then you’ll start seeing holiday season garlands and garlands removed from all Disney parks, such as the Magic Kingdom Main Street in the USA or the Discovery Island area of ​​the Animal Kingdom. The lights on the Disney Cinderella Castle Dream will also be turned off and removed.

Pretty much, as Walt Disney Disney Marathon weekend approaches, the decor will drop a little faster. With the arrival of the mid-January weekend, Disney’s Christmas decor will be completely removed and packaged for next year’s holiday festivities.

It’s worth noting that the EPCOT International Holiday Festival ends on December 30 (or later, depending on the year) and the decor will be removed that night or the following day. Attractions will be placed to celebrate New Year’s Eve and Days such as musical theaters etc.
