One of the really enjoyable things to do at Walt Disney World during the holiday season is to visit the Disney hotels to see all the holiday decorations. Each of the hotels are beautifully themed and decorated with lots of lights, garland, wreaths, Christmas trees and gingerbread houses. And if you visit the hotels during the evening you may be lucky enough to see a local high school choir singing Christmas carols or a church group of bell ringers.
Disney doesn't just put up garland, wreaths and trees. They make sure that the decorations are themed and have a connection with the resort. That is particularly true with the large Christmas trees that you'll see in each hotel. In my opinion, the theming makes the decorations all that much more enjoyable to see.
In this blog I've included pictures of the decorations in the Animal Kingdom Lodge, Contemporary, Grand Floridian and the Polynesian Resorts. I hope you enjoy them!
The first hotel I visited was the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The large tree in the center of the lobby is both beautiful and very impressive. I love the animal in the wreaths, however, I do wish they'd add a gingerbread house of some kind.
The big Christmas tree at the Contemporary Resort Hotel is outdoors in front. The lobby of the hotel doesn't have very high ceilings and the really isn't any room for the tree on the 4th floor where Chef Mickey's is. The gingerbread tree is really special and how cool is that large Mickey wreath?
Without a doubt the Grand Floridian is the most beautifully decorated place in all of Walt Disney World. It takes your breath away as you enter the hotel. I know the large gingerbread house gets most of the attention, but the tree and decorations are just outstanding.
The Polynesian does has some really beautiful decorations but is lacking compared to the other hotels. They don't have a really big tree or a gingerbread house. A couple years ago they did put out a chocolate display that really wasn't very good by Disney standards.
My next blog will have pictures of the decorations in the BoardWalk, Yacht Club, Beach Club and Wilderness Lodge.
