I don’t know about you, but for me, the absolute best part about this time of year is all the yuletide items you can try! There’s a reason we wait all year for them. All across the resorts, you can unwrap items that will light up your palate with flavors that are sugar, spice, and everything nice. From the almost too cute to eat (almostSnowman Chocolate Marshmallow Pie at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to the plant-based and gluten-friendly Santa’s Forest dessert at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and who can forget the classic Christmas Feast at multiple locations, everyone can taste their way through the holidays – one resort at a time.

Let’s continue our foodie adventure through the most wonderful time of the year in this guide.

If you’re ready to start exploring a Walt Disney World or Disneyland family vacation, I recommend checking out Undercover Tourist for your ticket options. I’ve already used them twice, once at Disneyland and once at Disney World and will plan to continue comparing their prices with other sites, however I usually come back to UT because they have the best deals and their instructions make it easy to add your tickets to the Disney apps.
