    I was there this past Dec. and there are decorations everywhere. I didn't get to resort hop but I know there is a nice display at Boardwalk. And for some reason I'm thinking at the Gingerbread House at GF there was a paper that said where some displays were. There was also a nice gingerbread house in America in Epcot. DTD is cool because there's a tree with game and toys on it.

    Have fun!

    Its been about 8 years since we have been there at Christmas time but all I remember is that no matter where you go Disney does Christmas really well. The one that always sticks out in my mind though is the GF there's nothing like turn of the century America done up in a Christmas scene. I think if you want to see a hotel without decorations you would want to go see it with them.

    Boardwalk, Grand Floridian and The Yacht and Beach Clubs should be on the top of your list.
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    I agree but have to add Wilderness Lodge, the tree is incredible. I have not been to the mdoerate resorts at xmas time so can't help you there, the values aren't really anything to travel for.

    Wilderness and The Animal Kingdom Lodges both have great trees!
    While the value resorts don't have ALL OUT decorations, they are cute themes - if you are staying there.
    I didn't visit any of the moderates on our little family christmas tour.

    I have been to all the hotels at Christmas time and have stayed at all but the Beach Club, Pollynesian and Old Key West. The Wilderness Lodge, hands down is the best resort to get you in the Christmas mood. The horsedrawn carriages, the fireplace in the lodge, the giant Christams tree, the carolers. When I sit by the fireplace on a rocking chair, sipping hot chocolate, looking at the decorations and listening to the singing, I feel like I am taking part in oneof those picture perfect scenes in those Christmas Special magazines IOh I want to stay there next Christmas!

    I have gone for past 3 years during the xmas season, I love it! We use to go for Halloween and then one year they started putting up the decorations while I was there and that made me want to go the following year in early December, the best week is the week right after Thanksgiving! Weather is always nice and it's not crowded. This year, I just made my trip plans for Nov 1st - 8th, I am taking my parents and it was a better time for them to go. I know that the weather is a little warmer too! I am so excited, I start planning as soon I make my phone call.
    DISNEY IS MY HAPPY PLACE THE ONLY TIME THAT I GET 2WKS OF HAPPINESS AND WORRY FREE TIME!!!!!! This time I will see it through the eyes of my baby girl born 2008.

    Next Trip is December 2010

    Can't wait!!!!!!
