A trip to Disneyland is not just a trip to Disneyland.  Combine it with outdoor adventures in and around Orlando Florida.  After all, if you’re spending the money to travel to Orlando, you definitely need to make the effort and visit the beautiful coastline as well.  Do some sightseeing and take in the beauty of the summer at Christmas time.  There are loads to do in Florida to enjoy Christmas celebrations.

Christmas is a feeling, an atmosphere, indescribable.  Lights, food, and family but also hidden in the many fantastic experiences you’ll find around the world.  One such magical Christmas experience is at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, USA.  Why not book ‘n flight and experience the Disney Christmas Magic at Walt Disney World Resort this year?  It’s magical, it’s fun and it is definitely something you should experience at least once in your lifetime.

Where is the best place to go in Florida for Christmas?
1)  First of all, obviously, it is Walt Disney World Resort.
2)  The Town is called Celebration.  Visit Market street, go on a horse and carriage ride, a miniature train ride, or stop at the many restaurants and holiday shops.  For the best Christmas lights, take a walk on 1027-1036 Jeater Bend Drive.
3)  Enjoy all the holiday festivities in Mount Dora – Festivals, Christmas parades and so much more.  And remember to stop at St Nicks Holiday Shoppe (331 N Donnelly St, Mt Dora, FL 32757)  The annual boat parade starts at the Mt Dora lighthouse and is a fun event for the whole family.
4)  Then there is a place where you can see more than 3 million lights adorning the historic district for about two months:  The Annual Nights of the Lights.  This award-winning holiday lights display runs from November 19, 2022, to January 31, 2023, in historic St. Augustine.  They also offer a free park and ride shuttle service.

Where to stay

Book your accommodation in Orlando Florida, just a few minutes from Walt Disney World Resort and Theme Park.  Some of them also include a few things that might make your stay much easier and happier.

Buena Vista Suites

This hotel is an all-suite property 3 minutes' drive from the Walt Disney World Resort. Guests can enjoy the heated outdoor pool and a complimentary breakfast. Scheduled transportation to Walt Disney World is provided. SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica are a 15 minutes drive away.

Universal's Loews Royal Pacific Resort

Universal's Loews Royal Pacific Resort offers exclusive unlimited ride access which lets ticket-holding guests skip regular lines at Universal theme parks. Early Park Admission* to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ and Universal's Volcano Bay™ water theme park 1 hour before the theme parks open. (Valid theme park admission required.)

Floridays Orlando Two & Three Bed Rooms Condo Resort

Located on International Drive, this pet-friendly Orlando resort boasts a 22,000-square-foot welcome centre and 2 outdoor pools. The Walt Disney World theme parks are just a 10 minutes' drive away. The property is 6.6 km from the Orange County Convention Center.

Travel Tip:  Should you wish to save money, book at a hotel or B&B outside of the resort.  Obviously, rates are cheaper out of season, so if you’re not going at Christmas time, you could save a lot.  Especially on accommodation.

Reliable booking at your fingertips.

When to visit for a great Christmas experience

Christmas decorations normally start in early November and end only in January, but from the 23rd of December to the 31st of January is a very popular time to visit Disney.  Naturally a very busy time for the resort but it is the ultimate time to experience the Disney Christmas Magic.

Walt Disney World USA

A show-stopper during Christmas time in the USA is the San Antonio River Walk.  It is a beautiful experience during Christmas, but actually all year round.

Travel Tips - If you're on a budget

We all know a trip to Disney can be very expensive, so a travel tip from me to you is:  Buy your own snacks outside of the park.  You can buy snacks from the normal shops outside of the park and it would be much cheaper than buying in the park or at the hotels.

There are drinking fountains all over the park.  Bring refillable water bottles.  It is much cheaper than buying a new bottle of water each time.

Pack essentials like sunscreen, hats, painkillers, and Band-Aids, just in case.  It is better to take it along in your backpack than buying it inside.

And on that note:  A Backpack is the best thing ever as it keeps your hands free.
