I would do it! sounds like fun!!! But be prepared to get there early and stay late, because that is one of the days that if it reaches max capacity then they will shut the park and you can not get in. usually by 10 or so is when it is full!

but it would be cool!

I don't think the OP was asking about touring any particular park on Christmas Day. I wish I had experience eating at any owned restaurant Christmas Day, but I do not. I hope someone comes through soon to help.

True, but many people don't realize that having an ADR will not get you into a park that is at stage 4 closing. It's important information.

To the OP-
If you are going on Christmas Day not only can you book restaurants in advance, you have to. There will be no walk ups available, as it is, hands down, the busiest day of the year.

As for Christmas dinner, I'm pretty sure most restaurants just serve their regular menu.

Some restaurants do offer Christmas dinners.It is important to note you need to book ASAP.Most places do not take walk ups or standby guests on normal days nevermind holidays.It is also important to note that if you make an adr for restaurants inside any of the themeparks, you need to get to the parks early and plan on staying the whole day.Certain parks , like MK, DO close to capacity.Now there are phases of closure ,but once PHASE 4 hits, no one gets into the park and that includes people that have adrs.Even adrs that are secured with a credit card(like CRT).Plan accordingly

Also, even though you have ADR's be prepared to wait. We had reservations at the Wilderness Lodge for 3:30 and were not seated till 5:00. Diners were taking a lot longer to eat and they did not allow for it in the system.
