What would be your dream Disney Christmas Experience?

If you could stay at any resort during the Christmas holidays, which Disney resort would you choose, and why? Would you bring decorations from home, or use Disney Florist? What special events would be "can't misses?"

Im a homer. I love our DVC Resort, and still can't imagine changing. BUT.... I would pick AKL. Go with the deluxe package that puts us on the top floor, and so the meals are included as well. I would put up a tree, and go to the Christmas Shop at Downtown Disney, and LOAD up on EVERYTHING I COULD CARRY, and decorate the room. Cant decorate outside, so won't bother with that, but ill make sure the room is as festive as possible!

As for events. I don't know too much about them. I also am not big on crowds, so this trip might be one of those that is spent at AKL doing all the stuff there possible, and chilling at Downtown Disney or hitting all the other resorts for lunch and dinner. I think that would be a magical christmas and now I wanna do it... lol

I'd just love to be at WDW for Christmas, with as many family as possible. Any hotel would do as I doubt I'd be in the room for long enough to notice if it was decorated or not. I'd have to be able to get a full turkey dinner with all the family on Christmas day though, maybe at the Rose and Crown to get a taste of home.

I would love to haul our trailer down to Fort Wilderness and stay for a couple of weeks over the holidays, or maybe even a whole month after we've retired. Of course we'd bring our own decorations and do the trailer up inside and out, and if we stayed long enough we could avoid the parks during Christmas week and chill at the campground, try some of the resort restaurants, or do some of the non-park activities we never seem to have time for. Then when the holiday crowds died down, we'd head back to the parks.

Maybe if gas prices go down. And when we have fewer cats and can just take them along with us.

AKL would be my dream resort. I would bring stuff from home as well and decorate the snot out of that place. We always dream of Disney World for the holidays but it's an impossible dream for now. I have always wanted to go to MVMCP...it seems awesome!

Well I would love to be at WDW for X-mas. Resort, well first choice would be the Poly, but the King Kamehameha suite. Second choice would be a one bedroom Villa at the AKL. Never stayed in one of those, but I hear they are great, with a Savannah view! Yes we would decorate the room to the hilt, tree in the room and all! Would we do the parks, I would definitely have to try the MK. We would have to do MVMCP & see the Osbourne Lights, never saw them.

You know what... im changing mine...

I want the room in the Castle in MK. I just realized that... so take out AKL..... replace with Cinderella's Castle Room, and then keep everything else.

Kinda surprised no one else thought of that one biggrin

Golly, Mase, you're right. Staying in the Castle at Christmas would be perfect.

Mase- Amen to that!
But realistic, I would stay at the Wilderness Lodge, with our room all tricked out in holiday decorations, congerige level, personal butler in a red and green sweater vest...
Ok, never mind about "realistic"

My dream would be taking my husband's adult children and their children and our little ones. 6 adult 4 children and two on the way total and staying in a three bedroom villa at a deluxe resort. I would have to put up a tree and visit the parks and eat eat eat! It would be great to spend the holidays together and have everyone experience Disney together.

Love the pic of Jan, Joe! I know this holiday season will be difficult for you -- we're thinking of you and sending hugs from afar!

Sweet pic of the two of you, Joe.

I wish we could have a Golden Oak "Grownups" house (I mean for all of our members. Kiddoes welcome, too Smile ) I think I'd have Jeff and Scrappy decorate, but with an unlimited Disney budget! Now THAT would be something.

I would love to do a big family cruise with my family and my best friend's family. That would make for 9 of us, 4 Concierge rooms at the Wilderness Lodge and then in 4 Concierge Family Veranda Rooms. I think that 4/5 nights at WDW followed by a 4/5 night cruise, with Christmas at WDW and New Years at Sea! I'm thinking we would need the deluxe dining plan and plenty of extra money for all the shore excursions and spa treatments we want!

I would love to take my 83 year old mom, my two teens, my husband and his mom and stay at the tree house villas. I would deck the halls ceiling and floor with traditional pine and glass ornaments. Since the villas have a full kitchen we would cook and have our Christmas dinner there. I would love to take my mom to the parks to see the parades and lights. She often tells me that she regrets never going and I wish I could change that. What better time than Christmas to make her dream come true.

This absolutely warmed my heart. I hope you can take her there, even if you can't make the dream Christmas trip.
