While none of the resorts we talked to has specific holiday decorating policies for hotel rooms, they did encourage participation in many of the special events that surround the holidays. These include things like visits from Santa, story-times, cookies and milk, gift deliveries from elves and more. They also encouraged common sense in your individual room decorations. Make sure you can freely move about your room. .
