    our first trip, We don't have tickets the first day in DEC, what are some must see decorations we should check out (like the gingerbread house) & what time is that open? Will we be able to ride the monorail & riverboats, get pics in front of the ca

    Hi Mary!

    We love Christmas at Walt Disney World!  Your idea of visiting resorts to admire the lovely decorations is an excellent one!  I'd definitely check out the gingerbread house and tree at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and spa!  So incredible, and you can walk away with a gingerbread snack as well!

    You can use Disney Transportation to get around.  I'd suggest hopping on the monorail and checking out all the Magic Kingdom area resorts, as well as heading over to Disney's Beach Club Resort and checking out the gingerbread carousel!  Amazing!

    I'd also head over to Downtown Disney for some browsing as well, and maybe a bite to eat!

    You'll be able to have pictures taken in front of any of the Christmas decorations outside of the parks without using a park ticket. 

    Have a magical vacation!
