    Ahh! Plz help. 1st visit. Will be there am of 12/25-12/28 with 6 & 8yr boys, DH & M-inlaw. Where/what should we do/see to have the best Christmas EVER!! Also, need help on the remaining days. Staying CBR. Yes, DDP & studying UG2WDW bible!! No P

    Hi, Lena!  I think just being at Walt Disney World helps make it one of the best Christmases ever! 

    I would say on the day you arrive, head to EPCOT or Disney's Hollywood Studios.  You will want to get a full day in at the Magic Kingdom, for sure, and because during the busy holiday season, the Magic Kingdom sometimes fills to capacity, if you start on Christmas day at one of the other parks, that gives you the whole next day to get up bright and early and head into the Magic Kingdom.

    As soon as you can, make your dining reservations, especially for Christmas day!  If there is a meal you don't want to miss out on, you will need to make your reservations as close to your 90 days in advance as you can.

    For boys that age, I would say must do attractions are Buzz Lightyear at the Magic Kingdom, Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and if they like excitement, Test Track at EPCOT.  Use the Fast Pass option whenever you can - you are going to need all the help you can get in navigating the lines, and this is one of the best resources.

    Check out to get information on restaurants and the special holiday events that take place throughout Walt Disney World, and you might want to look at to see reviews of the various restaurants and events.

    I hope you have an absolutely magical holiday at Walt Disney World!
