What will still be decorated Jan 5th -7th

I notice the Osborne lights are still being lighted. Wondering if hotels are still decorated. Also is there any thing else still christmas open and going? Never been in January always after Thanks Giving, but a promotion in Retail kept me from Disney.

The resorts start right after New Year's, since it is all indoors.

The parks start just as early, unless there is a cold snap, since it is more difficult to take them down when it is below freezing.

This past January, we were down there on the 5th, and AKL and the parks were still decorated. Now on the night of the 6th-7th, they completely cleaned out AKL before 3:30 AM (I know because I was up then for the 1/2 Marathon). However, by the 13th, they had started to clean out the parks as well. It may had been earlier, but each day we were at the parks, they were still decorated. Each of the 3 WDW marathons I have run, the parks have still been at least partially to fully decorated at that time. And the marathon is normally the first full weekend after NYE.

Mostly random decorations that they have not been able to get to. I was there once on Jan 3 and you wouldn't have known that there ever was any decorations up.

The year we went from Jan 1 -10, all decorations were gone by Jan 6th. So you MIGHT see some on the 5th, if you're lucky

They were all up in MK and EPCOT last year during the 1/2 Marathon. And DTD was still decorated.

It's possible with so many schools not going back until the 7th they'll wait until after that to take them down. I'm sure all those people coming this week will want to see them. and with the later hours and full resorts it would be difficult logistically to de-Christmas until next week.
