Holidays decorations at the Magic Kingdom 2016
Posted: Wednesday November 2, 2016 1:27pm EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

Walt Disney World's Holiday Services team might just have set a new record, transforming the Magic Kingdom from Halloween to Christmas in just 2 nights.

Starting earlier than ever this year, the Magic Kingdom is now in full Holiday mode, with much of the park's decorations now in place. The Christmas Tree and the Main Street arches are still to come, likely after taping of the ABC TV specials November 9 - 13.

Elsewhere in the Magic Kingdom, the Jingle Cruise holiday overlay of the Jungle Cruise is now setting sail in Adventureland. A Frozen Holiday Wish begins tonight, and Mickey's Royal Friendship Faire has a brand new Holiday-themed grand-finale.

The Dapper Dans and the Main Street Trolley Show also began their Holiday shows today.

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party begins on November 7 on select nights through to December 22, including the brand new stage show - “Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration.”

The Epcot Tree was removed and completely when I was there December 30th. Did they put it back?

If decorations are up until the 12th, does that mean holiday items won't hit the outlets until after that date? We were thinking of heading to the outlet this weekend to get some holiday items but maybe we should wait until next weekend instead?

A Frozen Holiday Wish is over, but I am not sure if the castle lights are lit or not. I'll let you know if I find out.

Do they still light the castle?

Excellent! Headed down this weekend, and I'd love to see it again! :)

Do they still light the castle? I feel like I should know this :confused:

It looks like this seems to be fairly consistent with what they did last year. We were down MLK weekend and the 2-3 days before and HS still had their tree up, etc. and EPCOT the garland and small decorations and I seem to remember by Saturday of that weekend the last remaining bits were gone

Jan 12 for the decor :)

Very helpful info! Do you happen to know when Epcot is taking theirs down and the Holiday food offerings? I have to imagine theirs may be a bit more "phased". But, I thought they may leave it up for Marathon Weekend.
