How soon is too soon to start decorating for Christmas? Well, if you are at Walt Disney World, the answer is November 1!

Yesterday evening the final After House Boo Bash event concluded, and in true Disney fashion, the team got to work to transform Magic Kingdom overnight! Now, Guests walking into the Most Magical Place on Earth will be greeted with Christmas cheer. In just one evening, Disney was able to get their massive Christmas tree up for all who enter Main Street, U.S.A., to see.

There are also Christmas decorations flooding the theme park and wreaths set up on all of the entryways to get into the park, making Guests feel like they are jumping right into the holidays. Sometimes, we tend to see the holidays start a few days into November as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has taken place on November 1 as well.

This year, Disney Very Merriest After Hours — the replacement for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party — will begin on November 8 and run through December 21. Disney Very Merriest After Hours will feature several exciting events, including Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks. Now that we can see the tree is up, and we are about one week away from the fun, the excitement that is now beginning to build for Guests!

We have also seen Disney’s Hollywood Studios begin to decorate, and surely we will soon see EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom join in on the holiday spirit.

Disney Parks (@DisneyParks) even Tweeted about their fast change-over!

Oct. 31: “This is Halloween…” 
Nov. 1: “Making Christmas time!

Today, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is already hard at work ensuring that the gingerbread house can once again go up and bring a new sense of Christmas spirit to the Resort after being gone last year! Over the next week, we will surely see a lot more Christmas and holiday fun cover Disney World, so get ready for that holiday whiplash!
