    I am planning a trip for my 9yr old daughter and I can't decide where to stay. Which Resort has an indoor water park? and Can we stay 2 nights in one resort and then 3 nights in another? also when are the xmas decorations taken down? Thank You

    Hi Lisa:

    I love planning Disney World vacations and with so many Resorts to choose from, finding the right Resort is half the fun. None of the Disney Resorts have indoor water parks.  However, if pool is the most important factor in your Resort search, then either the Yacht or Beach Club resort is your best bet by far. Few people will disagree that Stormalong Bay (shared by the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts) is the best pool on property with a major water slide, several sections, and a lazy river. For some active and thrilling water-based fun, Disney also features two themed Water Parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.  Disney Resort and Water Park pools are heated all year long.

    You can stay at two different Resorts during your visit.  Transferring luggage between Resorts is simple. Just contact Bell Services at the Resort you are checking out of and they will arrange to transfer your luggage to your new Resort.  Since you may be without your luggage for a few hours during the luggage transfer, I would make sure you keep a small bag with you with any essentials or items you may need.

    Although always subject to change, Christmas and Holiday decorations tend to stay up for about a week or two, give or take, after the Christmas holiday. A few days into the new year, the decorations are taken down quickly but in stages. For example, you may see the holiday tree removed from the Magic Kingdom, but the holiday tree stay up at your Resort for a day or two longer (or vice versa). So during an early January visit, you'll likely start to notice fewer and fewer Holiday decorations each day. However, I'm unable to provide any set schedule for decoration removal.

    Enjoy your vacation.
