Exclamation Last Minute Weekend Trip..HELP!

I am your typical Disney OCD planner who plans everything months in advance but last night decided to book a last minute trip, leaving today () and coming back on Monday.

I am so excited to finally get a chance to attend MVMCP on Sunday and see all the decorations but I feel like I have no idea what i'm doing this time around

I'm traveling solo stay at ASMu and have plans to attend MVMCP on Sunday and possible go to DHS Sunday just to see Fantasmic and the Osborne Lights (another first for me). I am also hoping to take a tour of the monorail resorts to see all the Christmas Decorations...And if I happen to catch wind of a soft opening for TT I will probably have to head to Epcot too (not counting on this since the official opening is a week away but a girl can dream right?)

That being said does anyone have any last minute advice/tips for me? Is there a preferred way you like to tour MVMCP (I really want to check out New Fantasyland as well)? Is there any other Christmas must - do's out there? What about Candlelight Processional - am I crazy for choosing Osborne Lights over this? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!

** Also just as a quick side note - I was contemplating this trip last night (found a great deal on airfare/hotel) and thought to myself "no you were just there in September don't go" and even posted on Twitter my conundrum about the trip and just then I got a notification that Stacy (Yes...THAT Stacy...from must do Disney) is now following me on Twitter! HA! Must be a sign right? So that is how this trip came to be LOL Can't let Stacy down! **

TIA Everyone!!

No tips as my experience is going with two young kids and therefore totally different, but have a great trip!

(And the Osbourne lights are fantastic although sometimes the street gets really crowded. I have never been to the processional.)

I havent been to disney since i was a cp but i really loved the candle light procession i went to it three times.(but i worked in epcot si maybe im biased) I would say it depends on who is the reader. The osbounre lights are cool but they dont last as long i think. And there is a long break in between songs. Or at least there use to be. I would definitely travel to the resorts and check out the decorations at the resorts. The christmas parade was the highlight for the party for me and meeting the characters but i loved seeing all there different outfits. Good luck!
