Thanks Katherine !!! You are correct.
They were just putting up the decorations when we stayed at BLT last month…it was great to see the finished product! Thanks so much for the tour, and Merry Christmas to you both!
Merry Christmas. As I said in past episodes, the Walt Disney World Monorail is my favorite way to get around. I have visited the Grand Floridian R&S. Not during the holidays thou. The resort is awsome. I love walking down the Grand Staircase. Reminds me of the Titanic. The Polynesian Resort is nice to. But (In my opinion nothing rivals the Wilderness Lodge. Thanks for posting. You brought back some Disney memories. See you tomorrow. P.S When are you going to post Holiday Wishes?
The Contemporary also has the largest Christmas tree at 70 Feet. Its outside near the porte cochere (Valet Parking)
Loved this episode, especially since the first window at Bay Lake Tower you showed was MINE! We had the JOY and the Mickey heads and icicles in our window for our stay. I loved going into the Contemporary on the monorail and seeing my room lit up each night and I hope other guests enjoyed it as well. Keep up the great shows and Merry Christmas!!
Hey Rick and Amanda,
I loved seeing all the beautiful decorations at the resorts in the video. I can’t wait until I can see it all live and in person myself.
Rick-here is a question for you: Is there anywhere in Disney World where they have a Nativity Scene during the Christmas Holidays?

There is one at Hollywood Studios that is part of the Osborne lights display.
When we visit Disney for the holiday we like to go and visit the differant resorts to see the decorations it is alot of fun. If you get a chance you should go over to the Shades of Green and see the Chrismas tree they set out it is a great tribute to all of our military and as a vetern myself i think it is great.
