    We are staying at Port Orleans: Riverside starting Christmas day, what things are open on Christmas day?

    Welcome to planDisney Jennifer!

    Let me be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas! The holidays are truly magical in Walt Disney World. Everywhere you look you will find beautiful holiday decorations and twinkling lights. What a great way to spend Christmas day!

    Walt Disney World will be in full swing on Christmas day. The few weeks around the holidays are very popular with guests, so not only will everything be open, but it will be crowded so make sure to plan ahead with your Theme Park Reservations and Dining Reservations. Add on Genie+ to save some time waiting for attractions and start your days as early as possible before the parks get super packed.

    You have chosen a great resort with Disney's Port Orleans Riverside. Hopefully you have some down-time planned to lay poolside, stroll the grounds, and even walk down to sister resort French Quarter. The walk between the resorts is under 15 minutes and such a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks. While at French Quarter, order some yummy made-to-order beignets. What a treat!

    A great perk of staying at Riverside is the water taxi to Disney Springs. Hop on a boat and enjoy your cruise along the Sassagoula River, past the Treehouse Villas and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort. There is going to be something magical everywhere you turn!

    To sum it up, YES! Everything will be open and ready for you to enjoy on Christmas. All that is needed is you and your travel party to show up ready to celebrate the holidays with Mickey, Minnie, and all their pals!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
