Hi everyone,
so glad this board is here. You guys are fantastic! We've booked a land and sea holiday from Dec 5 - 12, and were supposed to be staying at the CBR the first three nights.

We booked through Dreams Unlimited and our agent, Beth (who is wonderful) is on holiday until the end of August. She advised that I wait until her return to see what is offered, so I guess I will have to sit tight (I'm not the most patient of people!!! I wanna know now!! )

This is our second trip -- stayed at CBR in January of this year -- and now we are taking my parents for their first time. The kids will be 8 and 5. IF they offer us an upgrade, which would be better for us, do you think?? We'll be at MK and Epcot most of the time.

Thanks!!!!!:D

Just my 2 cents ... but since you are going during the holidays...

WL has fantastic decorations (not that all the resorts decorations are not fantastic also). However, WL has so much to work with -- a hugh lobby area, wonderful theming to begin with... They do a spectacular job. Of course, WL is my favorite resort so I am a little biased.

I would think no matter what your choice, you will have a wonderful time. Disney does a masterful job of making Christmas very magical, so you won't be disappointed.

(OK, now the Poly and AKL fans can make their pitch ;) )

We've been adding a "Christmas trip" for the last two yrs, (and again this year), along with our regular summer trips. The Wilderness Lodge is absolutely breathtaking at Christmas - and two yrs ago, it was kind of cold outside and sitting in front the fireplace in the rockers was just a dream!!!! We haven't stayed at Wilderness Lodge YET, but we will soon!

However, I think that with your children, and the ease of the monorail, and that yall will mostly be at MK and Epcot, I would probably go with the Polynesian. We've stayed there twice and it is so nice, and very convenient!!! It would also be very easy for your parents if they would decide to go back to the hotel when yall were still in the parks.

Be sure to visit all the monorail hotels for Christmas - the Grand Floridian is absolutely beautiful!!!
