How Early does Chirstmas start
We are going Nov. 12. I am hoping it will be decorated for Christmas. Does anyone know when they start their Christmas Season?
They should have started decorating by then. I'm pretty sure the stuff starts going up after Halloween.

A lot of the decorations should be out, I don't know about all of them.

I don't know if you've ever been to the party before, but my family was just at Disney this past December and I would definitely recommend it. We all loved it...the holiday parade and fireworks are must-sees. Mickey's Twas the Night Before Christmas play is also shown at the party, another thing my whole family loved. Along with the free hot chocolate & cookies and the snow falling on Main Street, it's hard not to get in the Christmas spirit.
I don't know if the Candlelight Processional at Epcot or the Osborne Lights at DHS will be up yet, but if they are DO NOT MISS THEM!!! Definitely two of the highlights of our trip! The Osborne Lights are completely spectacular!
Hope this helps!
When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.
I was there in 2006 from October 28 through November 6. Oct 28, 29, 30, and 31, the Magic Kingdom was all decked out for Halloween. November first, there was no trace of Halloween, and all four parks had the beginnings of their Christmas decorations in place. A CM we talked to said that as soon as the parks close on Halloween, the decorations start going up.
I've been to WDW twice in early or mid-November (starting with the 3rd), and both times, Christmas decor was up. It might not have been "totally" up - I'm not sure - but it was still gorgeous! And I totally agree with what Thumper said above - The Osborne Spectacle is truly beautiful, and I hope you'll be able to see it!
