Walt Disney World Resort Holiday Decorations

Each year during the holiday season, Walt Disney World’s on-site resort hotels celebrate with their own beautiful Christmas decorations. Many resorts offer such beautiful holiday displays that they’re worth a visit – in fact, one of our favorite things to do during the holidays is to take a morning or afternoon away from the parks to visit the resorts and see their gorgeous Christmas decorations.

The deluxe resorts on the monorail loop that circles the Seven Seas Lagoon near the Magic Kingdom are great for checking out amazing Christmas decorations. Disney’s Contemporary Resort features a beautiful gingerbread display, each year with a different theme – this year’s is Cinderella. Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort also offer lovely displays with tropical-themed décor and Christmas trees. One of our favorites is Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa which, in addition to garlands and an enormous Christmas tree in the lobby, also features a life-size gingerbread house! It’s incredible to see, and smells amazing. They typically also have gingerbread cookies for sale here, as well.

Another wonderful resort to visit during the holiday season is Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, which features huge Christmas trees decorated with detailed African-inspired ornaments and other decorations.

If you’re in the Epcot resort area near Crescent Lake, you should also check out the beautiful decorations at the resorts here. Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, and Disney’s Beach Club Resort all have beautiful Christmas trees with decorations showcasing the resort’s theme. Disney’s Beach Club also has an extra-special feature – a near-life-size, working gingerbread carousel! The last time we visited, they had several silver hidden Mickey’s for guests to find on the carousel, also.

Walt Disney World is beautiful to visit during the holidays, and this includes the resort hotels. Whether you’re staying at one of Walt Disney World’s deluxe resorts or not, it’s worth a visit to check out some of the detailed touches that bring the holidays to the resorts.

    I may have mentioned in another forum that resort Hanukkah decorations leave much to be desired: a single, lit Hanukkah Menorah placed on a rear desk is NOT enough to demonstrate some inclusion for those guests who don’t celebrate Xmas. I suggest that Disney management consult w/holiday party planners about what would be more extensive Hanukkah decorations than the aforementioned Menorah.

      You bring up a good point and I would recommend that you write to Disney expressing your thoughts on this, as it is important for Disney to hear directly from their Guests when they feel something could be improved. 🙂 Happy Holidays!
