Disney Resorts on the Boardwalk

One of our favorite parts of a Disney vacation is resort hopping and browsing around. Beautiful lobbies with amazing smells, excellent restaurants and unique shopping make this a nice escape from the general whirlwind of a Disney Vacation.

Christmas on the Disney Boardwalk

The Gingerbread traditions at the Disney Boardwalk are EPIC! Each resort in this area builds a larger-than-life display for the holidays. These usually show up in the resorts during Thanksgiving week, or the week right after. Check out the posts for pictures of our favorite gingerbread displays at Walt Disney World.
