Walt Disney World News: Disney Christmas Decor Starts!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… well kind of. Walt Disney World Resort has started placing Disney Christmas decor all around the magical central Florida destination!

You can now see holiday displays throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. The Holiday Services team will be installing yuletide designs at Epcot after park hours on Nov. 13th-14th. The Holiday Services team will also be installing holiday decor at Disney’s Animal Kingdom after park hours on Nov. 17th-18th. This is definitely my favorite time of year at Disney.

New! PhotoPass Photos Automatically Linked to MagicBands: Are you a MagicBand wearer? Well if you are then you’re in for a treat…well it depends on if your definition of a treat is more on the creepy side. On select Walt Disney World Resort attractions, your photos will now be automatically associated with your My Disney Experience account. You don’t have to do anything… that’s kind of the creepy part.

If you’ve worn your MagicBand on one of the participating attractions in the last 45 days, you should be able to find that photo in your account now. If you don’t have a MagicBand you can use the new touch points at Magic Kingdom Park (Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain) and after you ride, simply find your photo on the preview wall and touch your park ticket or Memory Maker card to the touch point.
