We had our 1st ever trip to WDW last Dec. and loved it so much that we are going back again in Dec. this year. We stayed at POP and really liked it, but I want to stay somewhere different this year. We really like the looks of the Wilderness Lodge and the Nemo AOA. And since we are taking advantage of the free dining plan during the week of Dec 10-15 it's totally afordable for us to stay at either place. But we can't decide. It will be me, my fiance' and my 5 yr old daughter. Does anyone have pros/cons or advice for staying at either of these two resorts. Which would be the best place for a Xmas vacation.
Our 1st trip to WDW (Dec. 2011) was so awesome we're going again this year!!!
WL is decorated beautifully for Christmas. Becasue of that, it books up really quickly, free dining or not. Have you checked to see if there's even availibility at WL? That might answer your question right there if it's already booked up.
If there is availibility, I would pick WL hands down. I could alsways stay at AoA any time. WL for the holidays is extra special!
We love WL at the Holidays as well (or anytime for that matter). They have beautiful decorations and it's nice to be in a place that feels so woodsy and cozy around the holidays. Especially the fireplaces.
Another perk, especially with a 5 year old, is the ease of getting to the MK by boat rather than the bus.
