Will the characters be dressed in their Christmas costumes?

We are visiting WDW 11/23-11/29 thanksgiving week. Will all the characters be dressed in their Christmas best or does that just happen at the Christmas Parties? There are no parties scheduled for Thanksgiving week and we really want festive holiday pictures with the characters. Will Belle be in her Red Christmas dress? If anyone has Pictures to share or tips for this week I would be interested. We are so excited!

Our experience has been that the characters are in their regular clothes during normal park hours.

The one exception last year was that Tinkerbell was in her winter dress and Periwinkle was with her.

Listening in...

I'm wondering the same thing. We'll be attending a MVMCP but there are so many characters I want to meet and other activities to do that i'm not sure how many characters i'll actually meet during the party. I'd love to have photos with all of them in their Christmas outfits so i'm hoping they'll wear them during the day meets.

I wouldn't see why any of them wouldn't, except the 4 characters meeting over at Pete's Silly Circus.

Typically at MK, they wear their normal outfits during the daytime

Camp Minnie Mickey definitely has them in holiday clothes, but Mickey and Minnie moved out of there recently. I suspect they will stay in safari wear at their new locale. Duffy will be in his santa suit in Epcot.

I dont think Belle ever meets in her red dress. Last Christmas she was in her regular yellow one at Enchanted Tales even during the parties.

I also met the 3 pooh characters at animal kingdom in their Christmas outfits during the day. That and camp Minnie Mickey is the only places I saw them during the day.

I can't remember with certainty - but I believe Duffy goes into his holiday look the day after Thanksgiving (which is when Epcot starts HATW & Candlelight).

Belle appears in her Christmas dress for just a couple days prior to Christmas Day at Akershus:
