Disney Holidays by the Numbers

Christmas Walt Disney World

If you’re like me, it doesn’t feel like the holidays until you have some Disney holiday fun for the year! Whether that be a visit to the parks, watching a classic Disney Christmas cartoon (Santa’s Workshop from 1932 is a fave!), or filling our own home with Disney-inspired holiday decor.

Magic Kingdom Holiday

Well, Disney themselves takes the holidays very seriously. The installation of holiday decor begins Halloween night! And there are 41 Cast Members who work year-round developing holiday magic, officially called Walt Disney World Holiday Services. Here are some more mind-blowing Disney holiday stats:

Contemporary Holiday
