Traveling for the Holidays
Disney goes above and beyond with their decorations everywhere they can. The Resorts are no exception! We take an entire day and go to several resorts when we are there during the Holidays. They have uniquely decorated Christmas Trees, Gingerbread Houses, lights, and more. Here is our Guide to Disney World Resorts during the Holidays. We like to start at the Monorails resorts, take a boat the Wilderness lodge, then head to the Boardwalk Resorts, and finally, end at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Each resort’s Tree will be decorated to the theme of the resort. It was fun to take the little’s pictures in front of all of them. The resorts will each have special holiday merchandise for purchase in their gift shops as well.
Grand Floridian – Beautiful tree & a Gingerbread House you can actually go in
Contemporary – Stunning Tree out at the entrance to the Resort plus a really pretty & fun Cinderella Gingerbread House
Polynesian – Very bright & fun Christmas Tree
Wilderness Lodge – Very Large and softly decorated Christmas Tree
Boardwalk Inn – Fun & tasty Gingerbread Version of the Boardwalk, an opportunity to build your own Gingerbread house with one of their chefs, and a very large tree in the yard outside
Beach Club – See an elegant Carousel made out of gingerbread along with a beautifully decorated tree and wreaths
Yacht Club – Beautiful Seaside-Themed Tree and an elaborate Holiday Train Display
Animal Kingdom – We like to finish up here and see some of the animals in the Savannah. See a large, warmly decorated tree
Hint:: There are Hidden Mickey’s throughout each Gingerbread Display!
If you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World during the Holidays, definitely plan on stopping at these Resorts. If not all of them, at least try to check out a few. They will truly enhance your holiday.
