    We are going to Polynesian Village resort this Christmas 2018. Its our 1st going at this timw of year and I know it will be very busy. Im planning some resourt time to relax, and I was wondering id the pool area is usually crowded as well? Thank you!

    Hi Susanna! Thanks so much for sharing all of your questions with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Christmas vacation at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort sounds absolutely magical!

    While it will be dependent mostly on the weather, the pools are not typically too crowded during the colder months. While Guests from the north are typically more than comfortable in cooler Florida temperatures, those of us from the southern states typically shy away from the pool because we are chilly. Given your New York residence, I think you will be very comfy!

    There is one time of day the pool and pool area may become extremely crowded and that is during the fireworks at Magic Kingdom. You will have a prime viewing area for the spectacular fireworks display! I'm so excited for you! You are going to love it!

    When you aren't enjoying the pool or theme parks, be sure to take a few moments and visit the other Disney Monorail Resort hotels via the Resort Monorail. The Christmas decorations will take your breath away. Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is my favorite. There, you will find an amazing life-size gingerbread house. Each year, Walt Disney World Resort pastry chefs spend over 400 hours baking the gingerbread and more than 160 hours constructing and baking the house. It's magnificent! Inside, you will find The Bake Shop filled with delectable treats including gingerbread houses you can take back to your Resort hotel room and then home.

    I couldn't be happier for you! Christmas at Walt Disney World Resort is so special! Enjoy every magical moment of your vacation!!!
