Walt Disney World at Christmas is extra magical. Disney goes all out with decorating and really creates some magnificent holiday displays to get guests into the Christmas spirit. But what if you want to skip the parks altogether, or don’t have theme park tickets? You can definitely still experience Disney and all of the holiday magic without stepping foot into a theme park!
Book a Resort-Only Stay
Of course, booking a resort-only stay is always an option. Disney does an amazing job of transforming its resort hotels into beautiful Christmas wonderlands, and some even have towering Christmas trees featured in the lobby to welcome guests. Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is known for its huge Christmas tree and rustic decor, while Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa has more of a classic Victorian feel and features a life-size gingerbread house and bakeshop! There is so much to do and see at a Disney resort hotel, you will be far from bored and have the perfect setting for celebrating Christmas.
Make a Dining Reservation at an Iconic Resort
If booking a stay at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa or Disney’s Wilderness Lodge just isn’t in your budget, why not book a dining reservation to gain access to the resort and all of the holiday magic it has to offer? With advanced dining reservations, comes the ability to explore the resort and check out all of the beautiful holiday decorations. Even if you aren’t staying on Disney property, you can still have a wonderful meal and soak up some Disney magic!
Visit Disney Springs
Disney’s resort hotels aren’t the only properties that get into the Disney Christmas spirit! Disney Springs (sometimes jokingly referred to as the 5th Disney park) has its own holiday magic going on! With the countless restaurants and shops, it is easy to spend an entire day exploring everything Disney Springs has to offer. This year the famous Christmas Tree Stroll was brought back, and guests get to take a leisurely stroll and check out all of the intricate and meticulously decorated Disney-themed Christmas trees! No ticket or purchase is required to visit Disney Springs, and no park pass reservation is required.
There are so many ways to get into the Disney Christmas spirit, even if you don’t have theme park tickets!
