Holiday resort hopping

Do you know by when all the resorts will have their holiday decorations up? I'd like to take a friend resort hopping to see them all and don't know how soon we can do this.

While all the resorts/parks will be decorated by then, not all the decorations may be up.

We have seen them loading and taking decorations out of the warehouse as late as the first week of December.

Last year we were there Thanksgiving week and all decorations were up except the tree in Magic Kingdom, that is put up for the taping of the Christmas Parade.

Last November I was at BWV 11/12 to 11/17. When we arrived I don't think any decorations were up by the time I left Ginger Bread display was up as well as other decorations. They built the Ginger Bread display in about 2 days. It was fun to see it go up.

Having never been in Dec, I was wondering if by chance are there any PhotoPass Photographers at the hotels to take Holiday photos?

I've seen them at GF. I would imagine that they would also have them at WL and AKL since they both also have huge trees in the lobby that I'm sure a lot of people like to have their picture taken in front of.

We had some photos taken at AKL by the photopass photographer last December.

We had our photo taken by the Photopass photographer at GF in front of the tree on January 1st this year. She also took our picture near the Gingerbread house.

BC and YC did not have Photopass when we stopped by.

We go for Christmas and stay at the WL. There are Photopass photographers at the WL and the GF for sure. I don't remember having any at the Poly or Contemporary. I don't think they are at BC or YC either.
