    We were thinking of coming Christmas of 2013, was wondering how hard this would be to plan, for someone that likes to plan? Do you think I'd get all the dining res that I want if I plan ahead? Or should we pick a different time, went in May and loved it!

    Hi Tara,

    Going to Walt Disney World anytime of the year is fantastic, but nothing is quite so magical as coming around the Holiday season!  It will be very busy so I would recommend making your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days (to the day) prior to your vacation to ensure getting the restaurants of your choice.  All of the resorts, theme parks and Downtown Disney are decorated so beautifully.  I even like visiting other resorts via the bus transportation system or Monorail.  The Grand Floridian is just amazing and has a huge gingerbread house homemade every year by the Disney Chefs.  It is a must see!  I think you should certainly plan on going Christmas 2013!  You will not regret it at all and have the most magical holiday ever!
