The 7 month mark is for August, and I've been trying to get a VWL studio for an additional party for that week, and I've been "up against" all of you Christmas ressie people!

Well, so far, I've gotten what I've wanted. Good luck to you too!

We've booked at BWV for December 16 through 23. Got a Grand VIlla for the last three nights and will have some relatives join us for DH's birthday bash. :banana:

It was the first time DH made the ressies - he had his check list ready - and two phones on speed dial. Set timers everywhere in the house with the two minute warning to test the speed dials and be ready :thumbsup2

It all worked! We will be in standard view studio for first four days then the Grand Villa :cool1: Never been in a Grand Villa, but have peeked in a few times :rolleyes: :goodvibes

We will be at WDW for x-mas this year! This will be our first holiday visit, and I am so excited. Bring on the crowds :)

I just finished our VWL reservations today for Dec 17-24.

Tomorrow I start our BWV reservations for the Dec 24-Jan 5

Good luck to everyone! I hope everyone gets their first choice reservations! Happy Holidays :santa:

I'm going to book Dec 31st - Jan 5th at SSR. I might try to move somewhere different at the 7month mark, but that will depend on what we think when we tour all of the resorts in March. We'll be at BWV then, already scheduled OKW for October... but who knows... maybe we'll love the BWV or BCV and try to move there in October and/or December/January.

we are going but not over actual Christmas. We have a 2BR booked at the BWV for early December. I am very excited as it will be our first time taking our DD over the holidays (We went in January 2004 but they had already started "undecorating" by then). I cant wiat!

Alright! :Pinkbounc I got our 2-bedroom Boardwalk view room for Christmas Eve! I've got three more nights to book, but this one was the most important for me! (Not that I want to be switching rooms on Christmas Day, so tomorrow is important, too...) Now we have to decide where to eat on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! Any suggestions?

I have booked a studio at VWL for the 19th - 23rd, changing to a 2 bed for the 24th & 25th, got the 24th booked this morning. Will then either switch back to a studio at VWL through the 29th or move to SSR for the 26th - 29th. Not sure yet what to do, guess I'll make my decision when MS answers the phone on the 27th! LOL!!!!

I asked for a lock off with hopes of not having to switch rooms completely for the 24th & 25th but I know there are no guarantees, especially at this time of the year. Everyone keep their fingers crossed for me till then please.

We have never been for the holidays either and the 23rd is also DD's 8th birthday! We can't wait to go.

We are planning to do Le Cellier and the Candlelight Processional for dinner Christmas
Eve. I think we will do Whispering Canyon Cafe for lunch Christmas Day and 1900 Park Fare for dinner. Had lots of recommendations for WCC when I asked.

See you all there!

Decided to brave the crowds at Christmas!

We are planning on arriving on December 26th - so I can't call until this Friday morning. I plan on calling again on Monday to wrap up our short trip of the Dec 26 - 29. I am booking Friday (12/29) for cash just to be safe. I am not sure what the airline situation will be, so I want to have the leway of a extra night.

Oh ya - we will be at our 2nd home - the Beach Club Villa's!

I will be taking my 2 boys without DH because he is in retail and that time of year is just crazy for him. He has been telling me to book this trip since we first bought in 2002, and I have finally decided to do it. A bit nervous to travel with 2 kids solo, but we will do it! Planning on trying the Magical Express for the 1st time too.

Nice, that sounds so great. I was wondering that also, we are VWL and I thought I heard Liberty Tavern had XMAS Eve dinner at MK? EPCOT area I am not sure but its a great problem to have.

I think we're leaning towards Artist's Point at WL for Christmas Eve and maybe Flying Fish, Blue Zoo or Yachtsman Steakhouse for Christmas Day. We were thinking about staying around the Epcot/MGM/Boardwalk areas on Christmas Day so we don't have to deal with crowds/transportation and can rely on our own two feet. I dunno... still deciding... but you're right, what a fabulous problem to figure out! :teeth:

P.S. Congratulations to everyone who got the reservation that they wanted!

Hey jade1 and anyone else needing to know. Here is a link to last years Christmas meals; http://www.allearsnet.com/menu/men_christmas.htm. They all looked good to me. We decided on Whispering Canyon because we are staying at VWL & had several recommendations for it and 1900 Park Fare because it is close enough it should be easy to get to.

We are not planning to go to a park on Christmas day at all.

My problem is that I have a little one that Saznta will have to visit. What are you all doing about Santa & presents?

I'm all done making our reservations for a 2 bedroom at BCV for Dec 17th-22th. I did it day by day and last Monday called for the last two days. YIPEEEE Possibly at the 7th month mark we might try for one more night of the 16th with some banked points from the other home resort so as not to lose them! (Good excuse for staying another day, don't you think? ;)
Can't wait to see CP again and Osborne lights and all the other great decorations! I haven't been at that time of year for 3 or 4 years. Good Luck to everyone making their reservations! :cheer2: :woohoo: :cheer2:

I LOVE WDW at Christmas, and it is so exciting reading everyone's plans. Our very first trip to WDW was the week before CHristmas, and to me, nothing has more CHristmas feeling than Main Street in the Magic Kingdom first thing in the morning and at night with all the lights on the tree. Oh - and the Osborne lights are pretty special, also.

A few years ago we spent Christmas at OKW. We had a small tree with lights and presents underneath, stockings hung on the buffet, all of our cards from home on display, and even made CHristmas cookies while there. Christmas Eve we went to the Candlelight Processional which was sooooo beautiful. We did the package arrangement and had good seating. Then went to San Angelo Mexican restaurant - DH's birthday is Christmas Eve - and that was his choice.

Christmas morning - housekeeping left a stocking on the door at each villa. A fun touch. That day we went to the parks - Magic Kindgdom - and it was great! I assumed the crowds would be awful.

To My surprise ;) Although there were lots of people, the Christmas spirit really took over and I have never seen such a happy, mellow group of people. Perfect strangers smiling and saying "Merry Chritsmas." Many, like us, were not rushing to do rides but just walking around with families, taking it all in.

We had CHristmas dinner that evening in our villa at OKW - we had bought holiday foods pre-prepared for the most part - at Publix and had a wonderful time cooking it together.

Merry Christmas to All!!

Just booked my first night on 12/26 - the funny thing was the MS guy automatically asked "what will your final check out day be?" I guess they are catching on to our calling day-by-day for ressies.

I plan on doing the Magical Express - I have to wait until my flights are set up before that can be reserved right? I saw a place on the DVC site to register for it, so I am planning on doing it there. Has anyone used it?

01-30-2006, 04:57 PM
I finished this morning. Now I will just wait a little while for things to calm down at MS and give them a call to add the dining plan to my reservations.

I booked a studio at VWL for Dec. 16th - 23rd, moving to a 2 bedroom for Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. Then we will move to SSR for the 26th - 29th. Flying home on the 30th, the kids wanted to spend some time there.

We are starting the trip out at Universal & RPR for the 16th - 18th. Would have rather started at Disney but didn't want top pay double out of pocket for a room at the Universal Resorts by staying the week after Christmas. We are however going to go to MVMCP on the night of the 17th.

I already pretty much have my plans made. If it were possible to make ADR's I'm all ready! LOL!

Now all I have to do is make it all the way till Dec 16th for a Disney trip. This will be the longest time between Disney trips for us since 2000. Not sure if I can make it!

Happy planning everyone!

For those of you who know how much we adore VWL, get a stiff drink and hang onto your hat...

We cancelled our VWL for December 15-18, and booked a Honeymoon Suite at the Grand Floridian. :eek:

I always thought the two best Christmas time resorts were VWL/WL, and the GF.

Never stayed at the GF. I'm scared. :scared:

Wake up the kids and call the neighbors! OMG! The VWL police will have an APB out for you by the second day of your trip. It's a good thing Granny isn't around to hear this.

If I do this day by day for each night of my stay am I going to get 7 different confirmation letters, one for each night? Will all the reservations be linked or am I going to have to check out and check back in every morning. I can't see that happening and this is probably a stupid question, but I wanted to make sure.

mlill
01-31-2006, 01:02 PM
No, it will be one reservation with one confirmation number. MS will just put a note on their reservation screen that you are calling day-by-day and not to send out the final confirmation letter until you are done calling. Good luck!

All set for 2BR and Studio at OKW Dec 24-29th. Haven't figured out if we will stay longer or go to the beach for a few days but at least Christmas at WDW is a go. Now to start watching for flights - guess that will be at the 6 month window as we prefer SW for their direct flights from Providence.

Just returned from Walt Disney World yesterday! I needed to call day-by-day for a 4-nite post Royal Carribean (Freedom) cruise with my extended family. My phone call for Day 1 was made from a Northwest airline flight as we were landing in Memphis (9:05am). I started dialing the second the wheels hit the runway. I was talking to MS as I was walking off the plane. Days 2-4 were made from Magic Kingdom, MGM Studios, and Animal Kingdom respectively, just after walking thru the turnstiles at 9am. :rotfl2: Not the way I would have planned it, but I was able to get all four nights in a grand villa (first time!).

Now my question. My only experience at WDW over the actual holidays was New Years eve in 2004. It was a disaster - wall to wall crowds at EPCOT.
In our group of 11, we have a couple of people who really dislike crowds. If we were to go to the Disney parks for 2 of the four days (Christmas, Dec 26, Dec 27, Dec 28) which days/parks would you recommend? Are some of the days less busy than others or doesn't it really matter?

THANKS

We are going Dec. 16-26th, but not sure where we are staying yet. We are hoping for BCV though, for the 17-22nd (S-Th). Will do POP most like for Sat. night, then move over. What do you think our chances are for a Studio those 5 nights, booking 7 months out?

And what is calling "Day by Day"? Is it not an exact science for when you are allowed to book?

I just wrapped up our BCV Studio ressie from 12/26-12/31. I am paying cash for the weekend nights because the point cost is just through the roof! I can almost swallow the 19 points for a weeknight, but that 43 point per night on the weekend is just too much for a studio.

I was able to get the 25% DVC cash discount too - surprised they were able to offer it to me this early so I grabbed it. It is actually the same cash price we paid for our 1-bedroom last October (ha ha.)

This premier season sure is an expensive one!

Now the fun begins with the airlines....

Slaves to the DING! It's getting to be a common tale! LOL! We're waiting for IND to MCO, too! (Seeing the $34 fare good thru June 9th pop up last week almost killed me!) We've got our DVC annual pass vouchers sitting here, waiting to be activated when we go in Dec. (We're planning another trip next year for Halloween so we get two trips out of the passes.) Once those passes are active, it's gonna be hard to stop me from taking a 'quickie' trip if a great DING fare comes up!

Congratulations to everyone who got their Christmas/New Year's reservations! I hope the countdown goes by quickly!

We are going Dec. 16-26th, but not sure where we are staying yet. We are hoping for BCV though, for the 17-22nd (S-Th). Will do POP most like for Sat. night, then move over. What do you think our chances are for a Studio those 5 nights, booking 7 months out?

And what is calling "Day by Day"? Is it not an exact science for when you are allowed to book?

Because of the demand for the resorts at that time of year a lot of members book their trip daily starting with their first night, which of course would be the day after since it is for what would be the check out day. We do this to ensure we get the resort we want. Like mine, I booked daily to ensure we were able to be at the VWL for Christmas Day.

I have always heard that it is best to bok your home resort at the 11 month mark and then try to change it at the 7 month mark.

Hope you can get what you want.

We decided to go just last night. We booked our airfare this morning and I reserved an OKW studio from Dec. 21-28th. I hope to change resorts at the 7 month mark and I am not sure if we want a studio or a 1 bedroom.

Our Anniversary is 12-26 (19 years). What would be a nice restaurant for an Anniversary? Would a CP with Le Cellier be good? Any Christmas tree lists started yet?

You already booked airfare? Right now Delta is $600 RT from Hartford and that is a bit to swallow! I am watching daily to see the seat count and once Southwest sells through the end of the year I am hoping the fares go down...

Now I have to decide what time I want! The 8:15 one was too late this past year I think. What are the times for the show? We might have to shoot for the middle one, but that makes dinner so early! We will figure it out though, I can't wait!

It looks as if the shows are 5:00, 6:45 & 8:00. I'm thinking that if we do the 5:00 CP we could schedule dinner for about 6:30. Does that sound like it would work? I'm really not sure so if it doesn't sound like it would work would someone please let me know?

Could anyone tell me more about the CP at epcot, also the best place to eat before the CP. I am thinking that might be good for Christmas eve.

MemoryMakers2669 & I are both planning on CP for Christmas Eve & I believe we are both planning to do Le Cellier also. I think I will probably do the first CP and plan for dinner for around 6:30. Hopefully that will leave us enough time and will be an alright time to see the CP.

On Christmas morning we will be staying at our resort and eating in the room. I'm thinking we will do WCC for lunch & 1900 Park Fare for dinner. We are not planning to visit a park at all Christmas Day. We all love to mini golf so I thought we might just try that out and also do some resort hopping to see the decorations.

I would love to hear anyones opionions on this since we have never been for the holidays before. Does this even sound do-able?

We changed ours, no more POP. BWV Dec. 15th to the 20th. We will try a trip with no car, using ME and didn't want the hassle of changing resorts.

Delta changed direct flights out of Dayton, now only 1 per day (used to be 2 1 AM and 1 PM) and that's in the morning. We have gotten so used to these direct flights, (smallish plane). The PM worked well for us, DH could work, we go offsite or Value for Friday and begin our DVC stay. We're adjusting.

I get to make mine in a few days! :bounce: I also can't leave well enough alone, and decided to try the Contemporary Tower in a Magic Kingdom view room on our first 3 nights! So, now we're doing a split stay, and are going to go to MVMCP on the 15th so we can just walk back to the Contemporary! :banana: (No more midnight, standing room only bus trip after the party!)

I'm not sure if it would even be available, the dates might be booked already. If there is enough interest in having one, I'll see what dates are open. So, would you be interested in going to an IllumiNations Dessert Party between Dec. 15th - 27th?
