Timbers is usually open. It is our Christmas day tradition to eat there since we've been coming down for the last 7 years.

A list of all restaurants that will be open should be available soon.

We also visited the Historical Village last year over Christmas (not Christmas Day).

Wherever they decide? If they take reservations?
