The transition from Halloween to winter holiday decorations at the Orlando area theme parks is happening rapidly. Decorations for Christmas have started appearing at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Grinchmas decorations in Seuss Landing at Islands of Adventure are basically all in place. Even the Port of Entry area of Islands of Adventure is showing wreaths for the winter holiday already. It looks like we are moving directly from Halloween to Christmas and Hanukkah.
