We go for Christmas and stay at the Wilderness Lodge. I've seen every deluxe decorated and I believe the WL has the loveliest decorations.

I would agree WL, GF and AKL are magnificent! We toured all the deluxe hotels last Christmas just to see the decorations! Make sure to see them all!

I agree with all the posters, but, I do enjoy going around all the resorts if I can, I love what they do at the BWI and Beach Club too

All of the deluxe resorts have great decorations, but our favorite is the WL, followed by the GF, with AKL and BC/YC/BWI probably being tied for third.
