8 Ways to Enjoy Walt Disney World Without Going into the Parks

5. Resort Hopping

Every resort is themed with a unique flair. This theming can make for awesome family photos. Each resort also has a gift shop with merchandise themed for their specific resort. The resorts are fully decked out and decorated for the holidays. During Christmas, you can find a huge edible gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian. You can also find a gingerbread carousel at the Beach Club Resort.

About Brandon Blanchard

Brandon Blanchard has been married for 14 years and has 5 children. All 7 Blanchards are infatuated with Disney World! Their Disney Infatuation started after his wife, Esme, convinced him to take their then four children (7 and under) to Disney in December of 2010. She had grown up going to Disney and wanted her own children to experience the magic! He told her that they could go once, but he didn't know why on earth he needed to use a whole week of his vacation time. There were only 4 parks! After walking down Main Street for the first time, Brandon looked at his wife and he started the next sentence with the most magical four words: “When we come back…” Disney World has become their happy place and can make everything right! After a series of corporate relocations, Brandon jumped on one that would move his family to Central Florida permanently in 2015. Professionally, Brandon is a manager for a Technical Support Company. Esme homeschools their 5 children who think it is SO COOL that they have the freedom and flexibility to visit theme parks weekly!
