    My family of 6 and I are having a hard time figuring out at which hotel is worth staying over the holidays and what we should make reservations for we'd like to stay on property but are having a hard time on where to to stay in from Dec. 15-20

    Hi Emily! Welcome back to planDisney!

    It's hard to decide which time of year is best to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth.  I love the Spring for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival and the fall for Halloween and Disney's After Hours Boo Bash events, but there is just something a little more magical about visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays!  Even though I live in Massachusetts, where it snows for FAR too many months of the year, snow on Main Street U.S.A. just feels different!

    I was at the Resort this past December for my very first time visiting during the holidays and I had a chance to explore quite a few Resort hotels and their holiday decorations.  Staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge was absolutely breathtaking.  The towering tree filled the lobby with twinkling bright lights, and a gingerbread giraffe statue joined the party while we were visiting! While a party of six would need two Guest rooms here, it is a spectacular place to visit or dine if you want to check out the beauty of the Resort!

    I do have a FANTASTIC way for your family of six to really enjoy the holidays, and spread out in comfort while you're visiting! Check out The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. These cabins sleep six adults comfortably and even include a kitchen and personal patio.  The best part about them might be that during the holidays Guests decorate their campsites with Christmas lights and blow up decorations!  We had so much fun driving through the Resort on our own little light show adventure.  Did you know you can even rent a golf cart, making this a fun excursion for your family?  We even saw visitors taking horse-drawn carriage rides around the Resort.  It looked like a completely magical moment!

    Another pixie-dusted reservation option might be Disney's Art of Animation Resort, where you and your family can fit comfortably in a Family Suite.  The best part about this Resort is that it is right on the Disney Skyliner line, making it a convenient, fun, and easy way to arrive at EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and other Resort hotels, like Disney's Riviera Resort, that will also be beautifully decorated for the season. 

    Whatever you decide on for a Resort, make sure to take some time to explore the others and get ideas for another holiday trip in the future!

    Happy Holiday Planning!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
