When it strikes midnight on November 1, Walt Disney World employees get busy decorating the entire park for Christmas. In just a few hours, they begin to take down all of the Halloween pumpkins and other spooky decorations and put up more festive Christmas decorations. For people who visit the parks during this time, it can be very exciting to see the whole park transform overnight from Halloween to Christmas.
Disney will be completely converted for the holidays on November 9, but it already looks so festive. There is already holiday music playing so if you visit the parks anytime soon, get ready to feel happy for the holidays! If you aren’t visiting anytime soon, check out some amazing photos of the park. They might make you want to book a trip ASAP.
