    Kudos to your panel! Love your panel! Are there any downsides to staying at an All Star resort during Christmas through New Years? Which value resort would be recommended 12/22-1/1? Thanx a lot in advance!

    Hello, Vikrant,

    Thank you so much for the kind thoughts!  It is such a joy for us to be able to be able to help guests with their Disney Parks questions.  Would you believe my family just stayed at Walt Disney World over nearly the same dates just a few weeks ago?  When we were there, we split our stay between Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's Pop Century Resort; both of these are Value Resorts and would be similar to the experience of staying at one of the All-Star Resorts. For my family, we were incredibly happy at both resorts.  The only drawback we probably experienced were the larger crowds waiting for buses at the end of the day at the parks.  However, this is a likely occurrence at all the resorts with the higher crowds during this time.  So overall, I wouldn't hesitate to return to do the same next year!

    By the way, there is plenty of holiday cheer at all the resorts whether a Value Resort or a Deluxe Resort.  Santa Claus even stops by and there may be a few holiday treats in the lobby for guests to enjoy!

    If we can help with any further questions, please let us know.  We are happy to help. -Kara
