@BeccaBee83: I used to work at Disney world at MK and going to the MK on Christmas day wouldn’t be the best idea. That was the worst shift I have ever worked! The park reached capacity by 9am and we had to turn people away. Not to mention the crowds were insane and the wait to get on the rides were all over an hour. That is truly one of the most busy days for the Magic Kingdom out of the whole year πŸ™

I would definitely imagine this would be one of the craziest times of the year at Disney World and Universal!  My husband is a teacher and TONS of kids go to Florida/Disney over Christmas break when they’re off school. 

I think someone else posted recently about activities besides Disney to do in Orlando…maybe do a search for that?

@BeccaBee83:  They all will be busy but I would stay away on Christmas for sure. The parks are beautiful during Christmas so it may be worth fighting the crowds to see it, just be prepared for it. The keys to the kingdom tour is amazing but book it now! That is the most popular tour and with the time you’re going, I imagine they will be booking up fast. Discovery cove, is also amazing. Worth every penny IMO. Legoland is pretty new so I don’t know much about that but looks like fun! As far as dining, Orlando has a lot of great restaurants, if you’re going to the parks maybe try and get into Epcot for a day and eat somewhere in the World showcase? I don’t know how many days you were planning on going to Disney but if you get the park hopper option you can hop between  the parks πŸ™‚

Go to Cocoa Beach for a day! I think it is only an hour from Orlando.

I just spent two weeks in florida with my kids a couple years ago, and I would totally advise against WDW on Christmas day.  Just skip Gatorland…seriously.  It’s a collosal disappointment and was a waste of my money.  It might be Florida’s first amusement park, but it’s old, outdated, and the people working there were jerks.

Universal Studios/Harry Potter is absolutely amazing,and it was one of my favorite parts of the trip.  drink as much butterbeer as you can!  You could do a tour at NASA, which we did and loved.  We got the expensive behind the scenes tour.  Also, Cocoa Beach is a MUST! it was so relaxing to just sit on the beach and bask in the sun. (and it is about an hour from WDW)

I hope you have an awesome time!!!

My Fiance and I were in Orlando for six days in March and had a great time…. 

I HIGHLY recommend Discovery Cove… we loved it there and found it to be SO relaxing and such a relief from the craziness of crowds everywhere else. What we did there was the All-Inclusive Day Package, which includes admittance to the park, breakfast, lunch, unlimited snacks and unlimited beverages (including alcohol…beer, frozen drinks, mixed drinks). This package includes everything their park offers EXCEPT the dolphin swim… and this package is what I would recommend. It is much less expensive without the dolpin swim, and many reviewers mentioned that the dolphin swim here is over-rated (much better options in Miami). With this packaged you get unlimited use of all other areas of the park- salt-water reef with snorkeling equipment (tropical fish and sting rays — VERY cool), lazy river, bird aviary, beaches, pools etc. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this for a relaxing, resort-feel in Orlando for a day… one of the highlights of our trip!

I would also skip Epcot… we went there and were very dissapointed! There are surely better park options than Epcot, we really regretted wasting our only park day there. 

Look up reviews on Trip Advisor and read the forums for Orlando… the people there are really great and helpful! Have fun!! πŸ™‚
