    Hi Christine!

    Resort hopping is a great idea! The resorts do not require park admission, but most of them are decorated so beautifully that they are quite an attraction! At the Grand Floridian, you could pose for photographs with your children in front of the enormous Gingerbread House for a great Christmas keepsake. And, maybe with the promise of a treat from the shop INSIDE it, they'll actually smile and pose perfectly (It always helps to motivate my kids that way!!). Another great choice, is to take the boat from the Magic Kingdom to the Wilderness Lodge.  The Christmas tree at the lodge is beautiful! It is breathtaking and decorated so uniquely that its worth a visit!

    While you're at each resort, be sure to stop by the Lobby Concierge for a calendar of events. You might just be lucky and have great timing to catch a fun activity - like Cookie Decorating at the Wilderness Lodge!

    Another great place to visit at the holidays is at Downtown Disney. In addition to holiday decorations, Disney's Days of Christmas shop is open year round. Just behind the shop is a cute area set up just for photos - its a little whimsical and features a few holiday props to put you in the spirit!

    Hope this helps!
