Christmas is hands-down one of the most magical times to visit Disney. Christmas 2020 has just come and gone and many guests wonder when the holiday decorations will come down. Main Street has been gracing us with beautiful holiday decorations since the beginning of November, and sadly they won’t be up too much longer. This year looked a little bit different, as there were no Dream Lights on Cinderella Castle, but it was still so magical. The resorts also decorated for Christmas and donned their big, beautiful trees.

So when does Disney typically take down the holiday decorations? We have found that generally, the magic pixie dust transformation takes place around the first week of January. Guests visiting in late December or early January very well may still catch the parks in holiday mode. We have found that each area of Disney World is different and timelines may slightly vary. Just as quickly as all of the decorations appeared, they will also disappear- that is, until next year! Disney does such a wonderful job of seamlessly changing decor. The parks actually go from Halloween to Christmas overnight!

So what comes next? As we’ve been reporting, 2021 has some really exciting things coming! Disney is gearing up for the huge 50th-anniversary celebrationand we can expect lots of surprises! Will you be visiting in 2021?
