We love sharing behind-the-scenes looks with you here on the Disney Parks Blog. Some of our most interesting holiday content from years past have included backstage glimpses of how Walt Disney World Resort readies for the holiday season, whether it’s decorating overnight or building larger-than-life gingerbread structures.

Here are some of our best behind-the-scenes looks at the holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Did you know that some departments work year-round to plan holiday fun? John Graham takes you behind the scenes at our Holiday Services department and Holiday Merchandise showroom to sneak a peek at how we start planning months in advance.

Did you know that Magic Kingdom Park is decorated for the holidays just a few days after Halloween is over? Check out this timelapse video to see how our “elves” transform the park from “Halloween Spooky” to “Holiday Sparkle” in a matter of hours.

Cinderella’s Holiday Wish and Castle Dream Lights lights up Magic Kingdom Park throughout the season. Check out this video with Entertainment’s Reed Jones on what it takes to string lights on Cinderella Castle.

Are you a fan of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? Check out this video, in which Entertainment’s John Phelan tells the story of how this holiday spectacle came to be.

Have you seen the creative gingerbread houses (and other sugary structures) that decorate our resorts each season? Check out this behind-the-scenes timelapse of the gingerbread carousel at Disney’s Beach Club Resort.
