DH and I are planning a trip the week after Thanksgiving. This will be our 1-year anniversary trip. We literally always stay value for non-occasion trips, but we agreed we would stay deluxe for our anniversary (we stayed at GF for our HM). After pricing it out today, we decided we just can't justify spending an extra $1,000 to stay deluxe when we could just stay at a moderate and use that money for food. The other option was cutting the trip a few days short. i would much rather stay longer. i know I must sound like such a brat, but I was really looking forward to staying deluxe during the holidays, and now I'm kinda ...bummed because we never stay deluxe. My question is: How are the decorations at the moderate resorts during the holidays? Do you still get that Christmas feel? Which would you say is the best to capture that feeling?
