    We are going 12/2-12/8, DH 35, DD7 &.DS10. Heard taping of the Christmas Parade is that weekend. My 35 bday is 12/7 & decided to celebrate by resort hopping to experience all the decorations and miss out on the chaos. Can you recommend some must

    Happy Birthday Jennifer!

    You're in for a fun day! I love taking time to view the over the top decorations throughout Disney World!

    The easiest way to tour the Grand Floridian, Polynesian and Wilderness Lodge will be to take a bus from the resort you are staying at to the Magic Kingdom. Once you arrive there, hop on the resort monorail. I'd suggest skipping the Contemporary (for now - we'll get there in a minute!) at first, and traveling on to the Grand Floridian.

    Once you've toured the Grand Floridian (AND eaten your Gingerbread shingle!), hop back on the Monorail. This time, stop at the Contemporary and tour this resort on your way to the boat dock. Here you can use the boat to travel to the Wilderness Lodge. After you spend some time there, head out to either the boat dock or bus stop and travel back to the Magic Kingdom.

    With these resorts toured, you can take the bus from Magic Kingdom back to your resort OR over to the Boardwalk where you can tour the Boardwalk & the Beach and Yacht Club. This is a great place to enjoy an incredible meal (and refuel!).

    Sounds like a perfect day to me - maybe I need to plan a December trip now too!
