9 days until we fly out to Anaheim for the weekend....DisBaby has a case of the sniffles so I'm hoping it get's better...I need a little escape. The pictures and tr's have been fantastic and have me so excited. We'll be there Dec 7-9 with grandma and grandpa if anyone wants to meet for gingerbread cookies.

I can't say yes for certain, but I have heard the gingerbread Mickeys were around all year now. They certainly had them November 2, even though it wasn't officially Christmastime yet.

Also, the last day for Holiday Time is January 6 (they're even celebrating Three Kings Day!). So, there is absolutely no reason there should not be gingerbread Mickeys. I found them in Pooh Corner in November 2011 and the bakery in Buena Vista Street in November 2012, no problem.

Have a wonderful trip!

Thanks for the reply! I am hopeful I can find the gingerbread. Just wasn't sure if holiday offerings get pared down by the last official day of the season. I can't imagine them being there year round. Maybe they just start making them after Halloween ends? Guess I will find out soon!

You don't even have to go into the parks to get the cookies. They are sold at all of the places that sell candy - which includes Marceline's Confectionery in Downtown Disney. They are also sold at the Market House on Main Street. So if you don't see them in one spot, look for them in the other places. Sometimes the cookies are wrapped in plastic; sometimes they are not.

As I mentioned in this thread a page or two back, I got the cookies with festive red chocolate-dipped ears in December 2011 at the Market House. This year - at least on opening day of the holiday season - I could only find the regular chocolate-dipped ears in any shop I checked. I'm not sure if the red ones have begun to appear or if all the cookies are just the basic chocolate variety this year.

The gingerbread Mickey cookies being sold at the bake shops seems to be a hit or miss kind of thing - sometimes they are sold there, and sometimes it's just the regular gingerbread cookies (without Mickey ears) that are sold in the bake shops.

During Halloween Time 2011 I was told by a Cast Member that the gingerbread cookies were going to start being sold year-round in more shops. I guess they had already been sold most of the year in one or two shops, but she said that they were going to become more widely available around the parks, all year long. So I am assuming that still holds true.

Is there a Jack Skellington meet and greet near the HM Holiday? Or is he out only during Halloween?
Thanks!

Yea! I finished reading the thread up to date today!! (Thank you to everyone for all the great info and pics!!!) You all have given me so many ideas! But, with ideas come questions ....

I have a list of items I want to be sure to get while we are there. We have been to WDW many times, but this is our first trip to DLR, so still learning about DLR. We were at WDW for Christmas last year (actual week of Christmas), and noticed that because it was so late in the season, they were out of some of the merchandise we wanted (Christmas shirts, etc). In particular, we got the Santa hats with Mickey ears, but they were out of the Santa hats with Minnie's bows. Also, we saw someone with Santa hats with Goofy (or Pluto) ears! (And I think they even lit up!) But were never able to find them to purchase. I'm afraid the same thing will happen at DLR since we will again be there the actual week of Christmas. (And I SO have to have that mini tree in the green canister!) Is there some place I can pre-purchase those to make sure we get them before they run out? (I haven't seen anything like what I want on the Disney Store site online)

Thanks so much to everyone! And you have put me in the holiday/Disney spirit! 3 weeks from today and we arrive! I am SO excited!! Oh, and I saw some other people mentioned doing the Holiday tour on Christmas Eve - we will be on the tour on Christmas Day (the 3:15 tour for the 5:30 parade). Anyone else on that tour with us?

We are doing the 315 tour on the 23rd because we have dinner plans on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Reading this thread makes me want to just go now. I am so excited for our trip!

I too have got to have that little tree in the canister. After all, Santa needs something to put the presents under on Christmas Eve, right? That will be our only tree. It is on my list of items to purchase.

So are 2 calendars - one for upstairs, one for downstairs. Some pokitpals because I love them and collect them, and finally a bag. Yes a bag. One of those reusable ones Sherry has been taking pictures of in her Trip Report thread. If you have not checked out that thread, you need too. She is putting in a ton of beautiful pictures and lots of shopping and food porn pictures.

I 'found' money when I was checking the balance on our old gift cards. Right before my Dad died in March, he had sent me birthday money in February. I used it to get me Disney gift cards for a summer trip to disneyland and then forgot about them. We didn't go over the summer and just found them again. I LOVE found money!

And I can't wait 23 more days for our trip.

I have been waiting this week for our costco vacation package to arrive.....they sent it ot the wrong place! Thank goodness i have been checking, and even after calling costco travel THEY thought they sent it to my work, not my home! UPS is awesome and are sending it to my place of work tomorrow! It has kind of spread out the anticipation but I can't wait to get them in MY hands!
