Christmas At Sea

As the Christmas season continues, let's head over to Disney's Yacht Club Resort to have a look at their decorations for this period.

In the lobby, we have this beautiful winter scene, looking over a small village celebrating the holidays.

Surrounded by garlands of winter bloom over the balconies in the lobby and reception area.

And their tree is, of course, decorated with decorations fit for a sailor!

From The Springs to the West

Every resort in Walt Disney World gets into the Holiday Season, with gifts perfect for this time of year to decorations and trees, themed to fit in perfectly with the Resort itself.

Take, for example, the decorations at Old Key West, placed around the main area.

These wreiths near the entrance to Olivia's are almost ready to go fishing themselves!

Whereas over at Coronado Springs, the decorations have are a much more laid-back affair, perhaps reflecting the easy-going nature of the resort itself!

Flo-ing with Christmas Spirit

A trip to Walt Disney World during the Holiday Season just isn't complete without visiting the Grand Floridian Resort. From the minute you approach the resort, you are welcomed with beautiful poinsettas and decorations.

And once you enter the lobby area, well, you can guess what we see first!

But don't forget, this is the location of the original Gingerbread House.

And in this House you can actually buy your very own piece of gingerbread - to save you feeling the need to nibble on the walls.

A Lodge Full of Christmas

At any time of the year, Wilderness Lodge in the Magic Kingdom area of Walt Disney World is one of my favourite Resorts. A place full of nooks and crannies, and beautiful theming, it's a perfect place to stay while visiting the World. Of course, during the Holidays, the place becomes even more charming and cosy!

The magnificent tree stands tall in the centre of the lobby, whilst the balconies around the lobby are decorated with hanging garlands.

You can even see a nod to some of the animals of the Wilderness above the entrance!

They shoot, they score!

Down At the Board-Christmas-Walk

Just a short hop-skip-and-jump from Beach Club, we go to Disney's Boardwalk Resort, to  have a look at some of their Christmas decorations.

And we are introduced to a beautiful tree before we even enter the Resort itself!

But once we enter the lobby, we see that the Holiday Season is well and truly upon us. And we can see that there is also a Gingerbread House in this hotel.

Let's take a closer look.

And don't forget to take in the information about the Gingerbread House, which it looks like Stitch may have built.

You can also buy a piece of Gingerbread from the Gingerbread shop, next door.

I'm sure it's all perfectly delicious, with no, um, alien ingredients!

Lying On The Beach At Christmas

We now take this chance to head over to the Beach Club, the closest resort to Epcot, and have a look at their Holiday decorations, including this special piece of artwork. Or would you say special snack?

Yes, this is their Gingerbread 'House'! Although as you can see, we have a castle, and a beautiful carousel of horses instead of the traditional house.

Each horse has been individually created, with hundreds of hours of work put into these masterpieces.


and last, but not least, Ariel. Fitting for the Beach club!

And here we have some more information about the Gingerbread House and Carousel.
 Don't eat it all at once!

Enjoying a Moment...With Eye-Popping Colour

With only a week to go to Christmas, and just a few days to Hannukah, let's enjoy a moment in the Pop Century Resort. It's time to gather round the tree for a family photo...although, you may notice that the colours are, well, slightly off!

It's just the fun of photoshop - don't worry, you haven't had too much eggnog.

Christmas in the Sun

Heading over to the Caribbean Beach Resort in Walt Disney World, the holiday season is still very much present but at a quieter, more relaxed pace. Without going for a big tree as soon as you enter the Old Port Royale Centertown, you are greeted with decorations that pleasantly fit in to the area.

But it's the little details that make Christmas at Disney unlike Christmas anywhere else...

Decorating the road signs.

An Animal Christmas

At any time of the year, the Animal Kingdom Lodge at Walt Disney World is one of the most beautiful and well-themed resorts of them all. But when you add Christmas-time and the Holiday Season into the mix, you get a really wild kinda time!

Here is the beautiful tree, standing in all its glory in the main lobby of the hotel. Towering almost as high as the ceiling itself, it makes you wonder how they got it in there in the first place...

And don't forget the decorations adorning the balconies on each floor.
