I am going in December but im not sure when. DO you goys think the Processional will effect crowds? I probably will not do the Candlelight Processional, so if crowds will be worse this week than say, the 2nd weekend of Dec., I will avoid it. Any thoughts?

Hiiiiii.. Welcome to the Group!

Yes, I've read where the candlelight processional makes it wall to wall people. I'm hoping to avoid that date also.

I will update the info on cast member parties too as the parks close down early on those dates when that information is posted.

I'll add you to the list now.

Thats what I thought....I will look into the 13th-16th now. I'm guessing that will be less crowded than Nov. 29th - Dec. 2nd huh?

OOooooOOOhh DebbieLouWho it would be great if You and Your sister WendyLouWho could go when i go!

I'm really going to have to save save save too.. i'm so glad i've taken advantage of the Disney Outlet Store online's clearance sales and bought the kids great christmas presents. The girls got all the princess babydolls..they will love them!

If we support each other in this thread to save or cook a smart meal instead of ordering pizza {mmmmmmm pizza why don't we have pizzzzzz!!} .. then maybe we can all swing it.

dlawallace... we went Dec. 11th thru 14th 2008 ... it was not too bad except when it got time for the parades then it was super busy... i think in general that is the rule for parades during the holiday season.

Well.. we want to go the 11th thru 16th.. that's a friday afternoon thru wed morning.. but our annual passes expire on the 11th.

so now the debate on whether to renew them or to move the trip up a weekend?

It would probably be better to go the week before as my husband will have payroll to do on the 15th.

So, 4th thru 8th it is.

Maybe

We will be there in Dec. Dates aren't firm yet but we will be there around the 15th, most likely the weekend before and we will leave either the 15th or 16th. DD9s 10th bday celebration!! We are looking to stay at the HoJo and we will firm our dates this weekend and make our ressies soon after. I want to do the holiday tour, I think it would be so fun but with 4 people it's kinda $$$.

Well...
We are sort of planning a trip Dec 17 to Dec 23. We will drive unless we determine that weather is too bad, but hubby is from Minnesota, so I don't know how bad it would have to be! But figure $300 in gas compared to a bare minimum of $600-$800 in airfare, and then the rental car and the parking fee at the airport etc.

Yeahhhhhhh Kerri and Tracey!!

Tracey... I hear You on the prices. We are going to use out southwest card at the grocery store then pay it off right away and the rewards add up super fast.. so we should have alot of of trip paid for that way.

Also we are having to work around going when 3 grandchildren are in school and can only take them out 2 days. That darn school..who needs ed U ma Ca Tion anyways?

List Updated!

I must say i'm so grateful to see that i'm not the only one who plans months and months ahead. Thank you all for the responses.

I've already been working on my christmas gift list. I try to have it done by october so that I can do some holiday baking and enjoy the season.

Plus with this economy it never hurts to plan ahead.

Ok so my goal is to eat out only 1 time a wk, on Saturday's after soccer games. Lunch is cheaper than dinner anyways.
Always pack my lunch.

We drove 2 years ago. The only place it was bad, was I think it Grants Pass in Oregon. But the drive was very nice. I split the cost of gas with a friend. So it ended up only costing me around $120 in gas. Much better than $750 for 3 rnd trip tickets.

When I took the kids for Christmas 2007, I had been planning since Christmas 2006. Over a year before we actually left. I wanted to make sure it was super special & a great Christmas.
