    Hi again! I keep reading that it is a must to visit the resorts during XMAS! Staying at POP and Thx to ADRs will see GF, Contem, Poly, Plan on seeing AKL on AK day. What other resort should I include and how much time should I allow? Thx for all the HELP!

    Christmas is a very festive time at Walt Disney World, Maria.  You're going to be in awe of the decorations!  It sounds like you've got a great lineup of resorts on your list.  To it, I would recommend adding a stop at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  That particular resort exudes a woodsy charm all year long, but that is especially true at Christmas.  The tree in the lobby is exquisite.  Also, if you can make it over to the BoardWalk area, I highly recommend stopping in at the big three: Beach Club, BoardWalk and Yacht Club.  At the BoardWalk you'll see a holiday gazebo constructed from gingerbread and chocolate.  The Beach Club, feast your eyes on a chocolate carousel that really spins.  And at the Yacht Club, there is a holiday village with a train.  You won't be sorry you took the time to visit any of these resorts.  I would recommend allowing about twenty or thirty minutes at each.  That will give you time to really take in the scene and maybe sip a cup of hot chocolate or nibble a gingerbread cookie.  Enjoy!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
