When do Disney World decorations for Christmas go down?

Unfortunately, as fast as they go up, that fast can they go down! But you need to know the expected time so that you can visit before it.

Well, the Christmas decorations typically go down a few days after the New Year celebrations. But the lights at the Cinderella castle remain. Normally, we can witness the lights till Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. However, the rest of it might go down within the first week of January 2022.
