    Hi Sonia!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    Unfortunately, I'm not exactly sure what information you are looking for.  Are you looking for a place to stay that will appeal to that wide of an age group or parks and attractions, etc?  If I don't answer your question below, please write back!

    Since you are coming at Christmas time, I suggest staying in a resort that has great holiday decorations.  The Wilderness Lodge, the Grand Floridian, and the Animal Kingdom Lodge are my favorite resorts during the holidays.  If you can stay in one of these three, you won't be disappointed from a holiday decoration perspective.  Of the three, I think the Wilderness  Lodge has the most "Christmas fee".  Other nicely decorated resorts include the Beach Club, the Yacht Club, and the Boardwalk.

    With regards to theme parks, if you have never been to Walt Disney World before then you definitely have to visit the Magic Kingdom.  It is the crown jewel of the Walt Disney World Resort and, in my opinion, of the entire theme park industry.  It has a lot of attractions for the whole family.  For example, it is my 7 year old's favorite resort as well as mine.  After that, I would suggest visiting Epcot, followed by Disney's Hollywood Studios and then Disney's Animal Kingdom.  If you have the time, I definitely recommend visiting all four theme parks; they are all great for guests of all ages.

    Be sure to make Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) for any Table Service (full service) restaurants you would like to dine at.  ADRs are critical during the busy holiday period.  ADRs can be made online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE, and they can be made up to 180 days in advance.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if I didn't answer your question, or if you have any more!
