    Favorite resort at Christmas in each category? I will be there for my birthday which is Christmas day! Thanks!

    Hi Susan,

    This is an absolute treat to do some day-dreaming about Walt Disney World Resorts over the holidays, and I have to say a mighty-tough question, too.  I hope I can help you out to find the perfect fit to celebrate both your birthday and Christmas Day.

    Value Resort:  Pop Century, but I have to wonder how amazing the Art of Animation will be during its first holiday season!

    Moderate Resort: The Cabins at Fort Wilderness have a special perk of guests decorating their campsites that can be enjoyed by booking a carriage ride.

    Deluxe Resort:  I have to mention two resorts:  the Grand Floridian and the Wilderness Lodge. The Grand Floridian captures the nostalgia of a Victorian Christmas with chestnuts roasting at the entrance to a band playing in the lobby not to mention to the life-size gingerbread house in the lobby. In contrast, the Wilderness Lodge is the resort to grab a cup of hot chocolate to sip in front of the lobby's fireplace and enjoy the rich woodwork and colors. They really are both filled with lots of Christmas spirit and joy!

    Honestly, I have to admit that all the resorts are great this time of year, but these are my favorites.  Have a wonderful trip. Please let us know if we can help again.
