2022 Holidays at Walt Disney World – Rent a DVC Villa!

November 18, 2022
By

One of the most popular times of the year to visit Walt Disney World is the holiday season.  With the incredible decorations, parties, and special holiday festivities, it’s no surprise that Walt Disney World is the most magical place to spend the most wonderful time of the year.  Take your holiday trip to the next level by staying in a Disney Vacation Club Villa!

Gorgeous Decorations and Special Holiday Treats

The DVC resorts have some of the best holiday decorations, including massive Christmas trees and impressive gingerbread displays.  In the Grand Floridian lobby, you’ll find a giant Christmas tree and gingerbread house where you can purchase gingerbread cookies and other holiday treats.  If you stay at Copper Creek or Boulder Ridge, you’ll see the enormous Christmas tree in the cozy lobby of Wilderness Lodge.  Over at the Beach Club, you’ll find the incredible gingerbread carousel.  These are just some of the highlights.  It’s worth taking some time to visit the DVC resorts since each one has uniquely themed decorations to fit their aesthetic.  Also, there’s no shortage of holiday cookies and cupcakes to try as you make your way around to the different resorts.

Great Locations Near the Parks and Festivities

Many families look forward to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom every year.  DVC resorts like the Grand Floridian, Bay Lake Tower, the Polynesian, Copper Creek, and Boulder Ridge are all a walk, a monorail ride, or a boat ride away, making it easy to get to the party and return to your resort quickly at the end of the fun-filled night.

The Magic Kingdom isn’t the only theme park to host a special holiday event for the 2022 Holidays at Walt Disney World.  From November 25 through December 30, there’s the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, which celebrates holiday traditions around the world.  The festival features Holiday Kitchens around the World Showcase, the Candlelight Processional, storytellers, a scavenger hunt, and a cookie stroll.  Staying at the Beach Club or BoardWalk places you within walking distance of the festival.  If you prefer the Skyliner, stay at Riviera, and you can get to International Gateway in EPCOT within minutes.

During the 2022 Holidays at Walt Disney World, Disney Springs has some great holiday shopping and a Christmas Tree Stroll.  The trail consists of about 20 Christmas trees spread out throughout Disney Springs.  Each one has its own unique Disney theme, whether it’s a movie, character, theme park, or ride.  Pick up a map and stickers to mark the locations of the trees as you find them, and you can redeem the completed map for a special button.  To stay a walk or boat ride away from Disney Springs, book a villa at Old Key West or Saratoga Springs.  

Larger Accommodations to Bring the Whole Family

With DVC villas as large as the Three Bedroom Grand Villas that accommodate up to 12 guests, you have more space to celebrate the 2022 Holidays at Walt Disney World with family.  You also have a full kitchen to cook or bake if you’re feeling ambitious and want to whip up some holiday family favorites at your home away from home.
