Who doesn’t love Walt Disney World during the holidays?  Disney always does an amazing job of decorating for the holidays. Each resort and park has their own theme and it’s so fun to see what they come up with for the holidays.

Earlier in the season I wrote a blog about practicing patience in the parks this holiday season. Sometimes we need to take a break from the parks and do something different to get away from the crowds. Kids need a break. Mom and dad need a break. So what better way to do that then hopping on the monorail and stopping at all the resorts to see the holiday decor. If you get on at the Magic Kingdom, your first stop is the Contemporary Resort.

Not only can you see the awesome gingerbread display, you can grab a bite at the Contempo Cafe, a holiday treat at the special snack stand next to the gingerbread display, and shop for holiday gifts in the far less crowded gift shops. The thing that’s nice about resort hopping is you go at your own pace. No set schedule. When you are ready to go, hop on the monorail and head on over to the Polynesian Village Resort.

I love the Polynesian. It’s such a relaxing atmosphere. Not only can you check out the beautiful holiday decor, you can sit outside and grab a dole whip or a cocktail at Trader Sams and just enjoy the view. If you time it right you can even catch the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the beach. Once your done with the Polynesian Village Resort you have a few options to get to The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. You can jump on a boat for a leisurely cruise, you can take the path through the lush tropical landscape, or you can hop back onto the monorail.

Last stop is the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. This resort is so beautifully decorated with such a relaxing ambiance. You can stroll through and look at all the holiday decor, grab a sweet holiday treat from the gingerbread house, or sit and relax and enjoy the live orchestra.

So as you can see this is a fun way to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the parks. What are you waiting for?  Hop on board the monorail and enjoy your holiday adventure.
