Haven't booked anything yet but also plan on going the 17th-23rd. I'm worried it will be crazy busy, but we'll have already been a few times this year with our AP's, so the trip would be a bit more relaxed enjoying Santa/Reindeer, decorations, etc. We plan on staying at a Sheraton and the new Villas at Grand California if we can book these dates. Wish me luck on June 7 (the first day to book this new resort)!

Add me to the "eat out less" list. Not only will it help save money for the trip but it will help my waistline too.

Count us in!

We went ahead and made hotel ressies at the HOJO's for Dec 5-9, continuing on to stay in Joshua Tree with the in-laws. I didn't realize that it might be crowded due to Candelight Processional, but that might be cool to see. We are going to get our first APs in June and are very excited! My in-laws announced that they would like to come with us for part of the time, so once that's firmed up I'll need to get another room. Anyway, they are in their mid 70s and will be going at a much slower pace. I know my mother in law really enjoys looking at holiday decorations. If anyone has any other suggestions for holiday activities that they would enjoy, I would appreciate the advice. We are saving too and are looking forward to our two vacations this year!

It is soooo beautiful during the Christmas holidays. We went in December 2006 and had the most incredible time. We stayed at the GC so grandkids loved the storytime with Santa, watching the fireworks from the balcony and all the really great decorations they put up, plus the easy entry into DC. Now, with DH's "semi" approval, I've just made ressies for Dec. 14th-18th at the GC again. After seeing how beautiful this hotel is during the holidays we decided we couldn't stay anywhere else. With the cost being as it is, at least we're putting back into the economy, even if it puts us in the poorhouse! We can't wait to get back and see all the new sights.

I fell in love with DLR, whats not to love. Fantasyland, Toontown, Nemo and so much more. Both parks and DTD are full of little Disney touches that make it truly Walt's park. Mickey Pretzels, Mickey Gingerbreads, Mickey pancaks. Yummy. It is truly th

Me too Me too!!

DBF's birthday is December 5th (so is his Mom's AND Walt Disney's), so we'll be there that week. Well, I don't know exactly how we're going to plan out our days. But we'll be there!

We went last year during Christmas and it was beautiful. I love it!

For those of You staying at Hojos.. i don't know if you know this but i thought i'd pass it on because every discount counts in these times.

If You tell them You are from Disboards you get a discount.

They also offer a AP discount.

I don't know if they offer a Senior Discount but Liesel, You mentioned that You were taking some Older Hearts with You, so it might be worth asking. As when i booked our onsite reservation, we got a 30% Senior Discount for both rooms we booked. So it's worth asking.

I don't think you can stack them so you need to ask and find out which is best for you. Some may be applied only to rooms over 100 a night.

QueenDoOver posted about the Pirate themed suite she booked at Hojo's and the wonderful deal she got on it. With the discount the pirate suite came down to like a 100 or so a night, i think.
