There’s plenty of Christmas magic to behold beyond Disney World’s parks. The three hotels located off Magic Kingdom’s monorail, the Grand Floridian, the Polynesian and the Contemporary, are open to the public and sport jaw-dropping decor, including a life-size gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian. Disney’s Beach Club Resort, which is next door to Epcot, houses a life-size chocolate and gingerbread carousel with a different design every year.
