Let’s take a look at past holidays – Pop Century and Art of Animation

There are only two value resorts that we tend to check out during the holidays. Last year, Art of Animation was new (so, of course we had to see what they were presenting) … and since we love the decorations at Pop Century and it’s a short walk away, Nick took photos there too.

Fort Wilderness Christmas 2013

If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you know that we really like Fort Wilderness. Before the new kennel opened up across from Port Orleans Riverside and it became more difficult to drive over and park at Fort Wilderness, it was a regular occurrence for us to go to the Fort and go

The chocolate display at the Swan Resort grows each year… This year, there was an angel on the top of the chocolate Christmas tree and a letter from Kandy Kane…

Swan & Dolphin Holiday Decor and Ornaments – Holidays 2013

The decorations at the Swan & Dolphin are elegant and restrained (compared to most of the decor at Walt Disney World during the Christmas Holidays) – very pretty…

Old Key West Ornaments – Holidays 2013

More ornaments! These are really cute and very well themed.

there were a number of Christmas trees in the gift shop at Old Key West… some of them had what we call “I live at the beach and YOU don’t” signs (slightly bragging)

Old Key West Decor – Holidays 2013

We didn’t have high expectations for the decorations at Old Key West… our mistake. They were colorful and whimsical, very nice.

Hope you enjoy Nick’s photos from 2012.

Let’s take a look at past holidays – Port Orleans French Quarter
