You will see many. The shows are over, but the lights, etc. are up for some days after the 1st.

Last year we got in on January 4th. The resort decorations were up when we went to bed and by the next morning they were down. It was really sad.

I can't comment on the park decorations as I don't remember. Sorry!

I've been there for marathon weekend 3 times (usually the end of the second week of January through the weekend) and each time there were some decorations still up but not most. I remember in 2011 the trees were up outside AK, DHS, and the tree was still up inside Epcot. The resorts were pretty much all cleaned up though I do remember in 2006 the tree was still up at POP for my first night (Thurs night) and gone in the morning.

In 2005 we checked in on NY's Day to a full compliment of X-Mas decorations. They were gone by the 3rd.

At the 2012 WDW Marathon, the trees and decorations were still up. I snapped these going down Main Street (Jan 8th) and I snapped a pic of the tree at Epcot at like 6:30 a.m., but it was so blurry, it's just a mess.

Last posted day for Osborne lights is Jan 6th. So those will still be up. AK is currently listed as last day for Jingle Jungle Jan 2nd. Epcot is listed as last day being Dec 30th. MK is probably somewhere in the same range. So after those dates, anything can disappear at any point. Having also been down there for the Marathon weekend a few times, last year AKL transformed overnight from the 6th-7th, everything was gone. During our trip of 5th-13th, I did see all the park trees and most in park decorations, but they were coming down while we were there. By the 13th I think most of the park stuff was gone. But we were also down there in Jan 2010 during their cold snap, and I recall that year most stuff was up til like the 20th. It was just too cold for them to be out overnight taking things down.

We were there this past January (2012). The decorations were up and the songs were playing all the way through our last weekend, which was the 8th of January. Annoyed the heck out of me but for those who want the Christmas spirit to last six months of the year, it'll be there at Disney World.

We were there for those dates last year and they were all up well into that week, with only a few coming down by the end of the first week of January.
