Will the Christmas stuff be up after December 3? Yes but with problems.

At WDW, everything that Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom offer will be there for the regular day guest. But this is not true for the Magic Kingdom where they have Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party extra hard-ticket night time event. Until about December 20, the special Christmas parade and shows are only shown at MVMCP.

Universal's Christmas events have started the first full December weekend (Saturday the 6th). Every day should have all the Christmas events except for the live concerts by Mannheim Steamroller which have only been done on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Seaworld events should all be available on every day.
