    Sherisse from MB Asked

    We will be at WDW for 10 days this Christmas. On the 25th, I am planning on breakfast at our resort (BC), dinner at 1900 Park Fare, with some time in between at DTD. Will try to do BBB for the girls, what else would you suggest for DTD that day? Thanks!

    Hi Sherisse,

    Christmas at Disney World, what a perfect gift! Wise choice on skipping the parks on Christmas day. They are typically at maximum capacity and it can get quite crazy in them.

    There will be some many things for your family to enjoy at Downtown Disney. The shopping is of course the first thing that comes to mind. The World of Disney is the largest Disney merchandise shop on property and offers just about anything you can dream of. There are a number of speciality shops like the new TrenD, Once Upon A Toy, and Design-aTee (where you can create your own custom Disney shirts, such a blast).

    The kids might enjoy taking a spin or two on the train or carousel or spending some time in the Lego play land. Mine like to stop and get a temporary tattoo or enjoy a cool treat while watching some of the entertainment that often performs on the stage by the lake.

    Further down towards the Westside of Disney, your family could enjoy a ride on the Characters in Flight balloon. Disney Mom Cathy recently enjoyed this with her family and you can check out her video on our home page under the New videos option to your right. There is also a huge movie theater if you are interested and of course, Disney Quest. The large interactive gaming facility that I can't seem to get my boys out of.

    Our favorite thing to do is just to stroll the Downtown area and watch the crowds and enjoy the holiday music and decorations. Hope you have a wonderful holiday there.
