Here are the Best Hotels for the Holidays in Orlando

Curated By

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, especially for those living in the Orlando area. We’ve rounded up the best hotels in Orlando that are sure to get you into the holiday spirit!

Though we don’t have snow,  we sure do make up for it with our show-stopping Christmas decor. If you’re not sure where to find the best festive spots, we’re here to help. 

Walking into Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center is like walking into a winter wonderland. From the twinkling lights to the indoor snow tubing, this hotel has all the ingredients needed to bring your dream Christmas to life. And for those that rank Elf as their favorite Christmas movie, you won’t be able to pass up their interactive exhibit that takes you on a journey into Buddy the Elf’s world. 

A giant Christmas tree, a life-size gingerbread house, and garland draped throughout the lobby—Grand would be an understatement when it comes to Christmas decorations at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. But it doesn’t stop there. You can also snag some tasty seasonal treats like their famous gingerbread shingles. 

Leave the warm Florida weather at the door, because when you enter Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, you’ll be fully transported into a cozy holiday getaway. From the towering Christmas tree to the nuzzled corner fireplace, everything about this hotel screams Christmas. So while soaking up the must-see decor, don’t forget to hunt down their seasonal treats like the Gingerbread Pine Trees and the Reindeer Food. 

One Christmas tree just wasn’t enough for Disney’s Boardwalk Resort. So whether you’re sitting by the fireplace in the lobby or outside on the boardwalk, you’re sure to be surrounded by holiday decor that won’t disappoint. The best part, you can snag all of your favorite Christmas treats from the Boardwalk Bakery, just steps away. 

Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is filled with an abundance of Christmas lights, trees, and wreaths. But, what truly makes this resort so special during the holiday season is the subtle details. Spend time hunting down hidden Mickey’s within their Christmas Village or checking out the themed ornaments. Then end your Christmas tour with a sweet treat from Beaches & Cream Soda Shop right next door. 

Simple doesn’t have to be boring. The proof is in Disney’s Contemporary Resort Christmas decor. From their twinkly outdoor Christmas tree to the lobby dressed in garland, every inch of this resort is celebrating tradition in an elegant and modern way–even down to the Chocolate Peppermint Cookie treats. 

When you picture a white Christmas, do you imagine snow or sandy beaches? If you answered white sandy beaches, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is all of your Christmas dreams come to life. They have everything from pineapple and floral-filled trees to garland leis on tiki sculptures. But whatever you do, don’t leave without grabbing one of their Honolulu Cookie Company shortbread cookie packs!
