Hi Netty

I think it's usually the middle of November, but not sure of the date.

The xmas parade at MK dosnt usually start until after the MVMCP nights.

We were there from 2nd - 16th November, 2008 and weren't able to catch many of the Christmas highlights we'd anticipated being able to see during our early planning stages (due to the fact that the festivities started a lot later than they had in previous years). Similar (i.e. later) dates were in effect last year, too.

Based on previous years, we'd expected the likes of Osborne Lights and the Jingle Jungle Parade at AK to kick in at the same time as the first Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (which was 10th November in both 2008 and 2009), but they didn't actually start until 28th November in line with Holidays Around The World at Epcot which has traditionally begun a bit later than the other Christmas events.

All the Christmas trees and decorations at the parks and resorts started to go up before the end of our stay, including Santa Goofy's Holiday Village at Camp Minnie-Mickey.

Wishes changes to Holiday Wishes on the night of the first MVMCP (and is shown on non-party nights, too). The first party date will also mark the switching on of the castle lights (so pretty).
