Is anyone else waiting for the CP info to be released? Last year a partial narrator list was first available on June 13, and packages were able to be booked on June 26, so hopefully soon!

I'm hoping for December 1 or December 4. What is everyone hoping for?

Edited to add some information (please note all info is from 2012/2011):

Is it worth it??

And still more!

Gary Sinise November 29-December 1

Neil Patrick Harris December 2-3

Ashley Judd December 4-5

Whoopi Goldberg December 6-7

Wink Cp 2013

My family has decided not to pay for the package and to just try and find seating somewhere in which we will be able to hear the reading. The package is to much money especially when we have very picky eaters and not everyone would be able to unanimously decide on one restaurant. I definitely want to at least hear it if I can not see it though.
Does anyone know of a good spot to sit to hear it?

Yes and I would expect that Le Cellier isn't going to be one of the participating restaurants. I booked it this morning for our December trip and there was PLENTY of slots available, unlike in years past.

Talking Cp

Me too. Am looking for the 6:45pm show on December 3, December 5, December 6 & December 8th. I find the 5pm show still too light outside, so like the 6:45pm show to get the full effect. Hoping to be able to see 4 different narrators.

I was thinking of the 5 PM show since we have a pre- rope drop breakfast that morning.

Does it make that big of a difference? We will be TIRED by then

Planning on December 14th.

A couple of questions for those who have done the CP package:

How long is the CP?

If we do the package aren't we reserved a seat? So why the need to line up and wait for our guaranteed seat?

Were you planning on staying for Illuminations? If so, it really doesn't matter what show you go to because you'll at Epcot til closing.

Staying on-site?
Traveling with young kids?

They are not too young, 8 & 10. We are staying at the Poly for the first time. However, on our last trip we did commando style Disney. 3 nonstop days in the parks from RD to park close. I will never do that again. We were so grumpy, and my feet were killing me by day three!

So, we have have a pre- RD breakfast I was going to do the CP lunch package and the 5 PM CP. Then chill at the pool and maybe watch Wishes from the Poly beach.
I promised my family a laid- back vacation this time!! But if the CP is way better at 6:45 because of the darkness we will consider staying. We have never seen it.

Your plan will definitely work. Yes, it's a long day - perhaps keep the evening before an easy one then the next morning low key. Doing the CP dinner package may allow you to go back to your room mid-day to rest and freshen up.

At least it won't be HOT!
