I'm still coming to terms with these big numbers:

First visit to WDW in 1994, been DVC members since 1999.

- 65 ADR's (Top 5 please!)
Cape May Cafe for breakfast and dinner, Captain's Grille for breakfast, Trails End for dinner, Liberty Tree Tavern and all the rest!

- 3am Main Street clock (Have I missed a Disney reference here or is just because of EMH???)
The EMH hours at MK we like are 23rd and 28th December, open until 3am

- 24 times through Mickey's Philharmagic (How long has that taken you?)
That was last trip, the year before was 23.
Wow! Thanks for the ADR recommendations. We haven't done Trails End yet so I'll be sure to add it to our list. Good luck with making it to 24 on Mickey's Philharmagic.

Fort Wilderness area is so unique and it is a place most people do not visit when going to WDW. We normally catch the boat across from MK. At Christmas the decorations at the RV and campsites is a unbelievable.

The Sleigh ride at night takes you on a half hour ride around some of the best sites.

Trails End has very nice food and very reasonable cost.

We've been to FW for Hoop Dee Doo. We were hoping to do the Haunted Hayride with the Headless Horseman this year but it was cancelled. Hoping it returns next year.

Would like to see FW at Xmas time and take the Sleigh ride. There is so much to do at WDW that you just have to keep going back!

On NY day the Segway at Fort Wilderness.

Apart from that we have around 65 ADR, and have fun riding the buses, boats, train and Monorail and visit our regular servers and CM's some of whom we have known for ten years.

This year in EMH at MK we want a photo at the Main Street clock at 3 am.

Explore the new Fantasyland section and pass our record of 24 times through Mickey's Philharmagic!

And start planning for next year!
Your Christmas day sounds awesome must be so magical to experience

Colin, that does sound like fun.

So you spend every Christmas there, is it just the two of you? Do you have family here?

Don't answer if you think I am being too nosy!

We have only ever been to WDW over Christmas. If you choose the time you go to the parks it is easy to get on the rides, we mostly go to MK from maybe 6 or 8 pm and the atmosphere is great. If you stay at WDW long enough it is easy to fit in the attractions in a relaxed pace. One night we arrived at Mk at 10.45 and left at 1 am, in that time we went on 9 rides like Haunted Mansion and POC, probably more than you would fit in if you were there all day.

We first went to WDW in 1994, then 3 years later, then we have been every year since except for one. Just the two of us (we have no kids) but nearly every year have friends join us for part of the time. The first visit was 2.5 weeks, the trips have slowly grown to 5 weeks.

We made it to the Boardwalk. Forgot to mention we went via Las Vegas for a concert in the Colosseum. Had a 6.45am flight via Dallas to Orlando. Got our room overlooking Crescent Lake, just over the Screendoor shop. Might post some photos after some sleep.
