If you only had time to see 2 resorts over Christmas...
 
Which two would they be and why?

My extreme over-planning only leaves room for us to visit 2 or 3 resorts. Looking for some suggestions.

Wilderness Lodge because of the log cabin style looks so great with Christmas decorations and with a 4 story Christmas tree, and Animal Kingdom Lodge with its own unique African designs and wood interior, 4 story Christmas treee and watch the animals from their viewing areas.

I would try for a resort while at each park....for instance...
at MK? Check out the GF and WL
Epcot?? Either BW or YC/BC
AK?? Obviously, AKL.

If you are already in that area, it's a shame to miss the resorts that are nearby. You can always head to the GF, check it out (for instance), then back to MK and take the boat over to the WL....check it out and get some lunch there, at their food court or at Whispering Canyon Cafe!

It's always nice to take a break from the busy parks....especially at this time of year. So, I like to head to a resort, check it out and grab a bite to eat.

Exactly. :thumbsup2 These are the two most decorated resorts.

The good news is that we are staying at AKL, so well get to see that one. I really like the idea of WL, great big log cabin feel. I've heard a lot about GF too which will be easy enough while at MK.

The WL & GF. Have been to both and they are amazing!!

The giant Gingerbread House at GF is a must see!

WL and GF.

If you are staying at AKL, then I agree that GF and WL are the next choices. I personally think AKL is the most gorgeous ever at Christmastime, but of course it depends on personal taste. :)

If you're only going to do it once, then WL and AKL for sure. IMO, GF was too cold and sterile-looking.

You could do all three Boardwalk resorts, and still have time to hit up another couple of resorts.

For my tastes, I really liked the decorations at CSR and the camping area at FW.

Osborne Lights are up till 1/6/13, so does that mean the resorts will remain decorated through then as well? The 5th is a Saturday, and I was thinking about seeing the resorts during the day and Osborne Lights that evening.

Great question, looking for the answer to this too...
