  • Hi Andy!

    How wonderful that you are planning a family reunion at the Most Magical Place on Earth!  With so much for multi-generational families to experience, this will definitely be a vacation for your family, and your daughter to remember!

    Traditionally, holiday decorations are in place at the Magic Kingdom right before the beginning of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, and throughout all the resorts and theme parks by Thanksgiving day. ​The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights plays out every night on the Streets of America at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Beginning right after Thanksgiving, the lights "dance" nightly up until the first week of January. There is usually soft previews the week before Thanksgiving.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
