    When do Xmas Holiday decorations come down?

    We are thinking of returning to DL either the first week of December, or sometime in Jan. We really would like to see the Xmas decorations. Does anybody know at what point they come down in Jan.?

    Also, is there a benefit to going (as far as crowds) either during the first week of December, or sometime in Jan.?

    Thanks all.

    Re: When do Xmas Holiday decorations come down?

    the very beginning of december is typically less crowded, especially during the week...

    January...they left the decorations up this year longer than last year...Usually the first week in January...and it's usually pretty crowded cuz everyone wants to get in their last bit of Christmas decor.

    I went to the last day of X-mas decorations LAST year when they took it down on Jan. 2 and we were prepared for ridiculous crowds...but it poured all day so it was great! aside from the wetness...

    I just looked and I have pix from this year's on Jan. 7th...and it wasn't the last day.

    Re: When do Xmas Holiday decorations come down?

    I think Xmas decorations usually come down the first Monday after New Years.

    As far as going either the first week of Dec or in January, I would pick the first weekend in December. It's the least crowded time when all the Xmas decorations are already up. In January, you miss the decortions and a lot of the rides go down for refurbishment.

    The decorations come down fairly early in January, but the holiday overlay for It's a Small World was still up on MLK Jr holiday weekend this past January.

    Aren't Christmas decorations supposed to stay up until the Epiphany?

    I do remember the IASW overlay being up until mid to late January the past couple years. I think the par decor came down within the first week or so.

    Yes, early December is a great time to go. The later in the month the worse it gets. The last time I went last December was early December and I didn't go back until I think that first weekend after the 1st in January. I just don't like the crazy crowds that time of year.

    The decorations will start coming down Jan 7th, but it takes a while to get everything down.

    Re: When do Xmas Holiday decorations come down?

    The snowglobe in front of the castle came down
    the day after Christmas last year. And it looked
    to me like they started removing other Christmas
    details the day after also (Poinsettia's being replaced
    slowly by other red flowers, etc). So see DL in FULL
    Christmas Grandier, Between the Week of Thanksgiving
    until Christmas day.

    The main stuff is still up until New Year's eve, but
    with so many decorations, you can bet some of the
    decorations come down sooner. And of course
    much of the Christmas merchandise goes on sale
    on Dec 26th.

    The snowglobe and other items in front of the castle needed to be removed for the Rose Bowl parade stuff that goes on in front of the castle. The rest remained up til after New Years.
