Also hoping my gf doesn't find out I upgraded us to Club Level before we get there!!
We didn't think we'd be going this year. Took a trip late last October and figured it would be 2 years until we got back...at minimum. Then fall came, got an email, booked on 9/1 for 12/15-22 w/FD. Sooo psyched. Surprised my daughter last year for her b-day, this year will surprise her for the Holidays! She'll flip!

2. how are the crowds during this period?

3. I requested Magnolia Terrace so we can make use of the nearby bus stop. will we have a hard time finding seats on the bus due to crowd levels?

thanks!

Last year DD got 1st trip and B-day buttons, they fussed over her a lot and a couple of restaurants brought her out a candle lit dessert and balloons. They really go out of the way to acknowledge your "event" by offering best wishes.

Can't address the crowds, this is our 1st December. Obviously you are leaving to return home on a good day, the day of when crazy week begins. I think it will be ok.

We were in Magnolia Terrace last year. We had a car, but always took the bus to MK. We never waited and I thought it was fast-20min max. Obviously, near the end of the night/fireworks time, buses are nuts, but that's to be expected. We left before they were over and many times when we 'hopped' to MK during the mid afternoon, the POR buses to MK were easy to get and few on them.

I loved POR!! When we booked with FD there were only the rooms left for free dining were the Royal Rooms - Princess & Frog. So we will be in either Oak Manor or Parterre Place. I didn't think any of the areas were that far to get to. The grounds are beautiful.

What does everyone think about FLE? Will it be a big todo? Or will it just be the day Disney marks on the calendar as the official opening day ?

Dec. 8 - 15th

I'm in too. Dec. 8 - 15th. Wyndam Grand Bonnett Creek -- the hotel not the condos. Hope we like it!

Going with my DH, 2 sisters and my niece -- they will be at the AKL.

We were there for Christmas in 2010 and can't wait to share it with family!

I 100% agree. It's like being dipped in Christmas decorations. And though the urge strikes me every time, I have to keep reminding myself... Don't try to catch the snow(p) on my tongue. BAD IDEA!

Yes a very bad idea. Nothing says Christmas like mouth full of non toxic soap bubbles.
