I am so ready for this trip. It's driving me crazy all the people around me are leaving for their vacations now and I've got 5 months to go.

We are going to POFQ 12/22-12/27.

My husband and I got up this morning (4:45 CST time) and split our list of ADRs and got everything we had planned! We were worried, since we're going Christmas week, of availability, but we managed to get a BOG dinner on our arrival day (at 9pm, but that's ok!) and a CRT breakfast, as well as a Fantasmic dinner package and a birthday/graduation adults only meal at the Yatchsman.

*yawn* Now I just have to wait for CP and the Dessert Party to go on sale! Sending good wishes to everyone making their holiday ADRs!

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

We are thinking about booking a trip for December 1-7. Went 12-18th (the infamous cold spell) in 2010, but now that is in the "peak" pricing, and we would have to stay at a value with the Pop Warner kids for 2 days. So, I was think the 1st-7th would be pretty good, right after Thanksgiving so most people are home, also a good start to the Holiday season.

We have a 2BR VGF resort reservation (non DVC members) that happens to be during Pop Warner week. From the research I've started doing, it seems that it may be hard to get any types of Disney World discounts during that specific week in December. I know that there are PIN codes for FD but that week is not covered. If I'm lucky enough to receive a PIN code or if WDW extends FD, offers GP room discounts, etc. will they be offered that week and/or at the VGF since it's brand new? Would getting an AP get me a discount? Does anyone have any advice, words of wisdom, information, thoughts for WDW discounts during Pop Warner week?

That would be a great week the crowds are really low, but try to remember that the Christmas parade will be taped on the 6th and 7th at the MK. From what I understand on the 6th it is the performances and on the 7th it is mainly the parade. I was told if you go those days try to avoid the MK. my original plan was to go that week also but with 2 little girls I could not avoid the MK for 2 days! So my reservations were moved to the next week staying off site.

Hello everyone We are currently booked Halloween week, but I'm going to be switching us to December tomorrow. It's looking like our dates will be Nov 30- Dec 8, probably staying at Pop. It'll be just the kids and I. I sat down tonight and managed to get most of our ADR's changed, so that made me very happy!!!

That week is hard because Disney knows that they can get the business. I do not think getting an AP will get you discounts except for free parking but if you are staying on site you get that anyway. The AP also can get you at some restaurants a certain % off of your meal. As far as I know free dining is hard to come by that week unless they give you a pin.

Going the 14-18 for a quick first trip for the kiddos. Our DS6 is autistic and I am afraid to stay any longer than that.

DD7 already has a list of princesses to meet!

We are doing two days in MK to take things a little slower and 1 day at HS.

Thank you so much for answering my rather lengthy question(s). I guess I will just have to cross my fingers. Thanks again!
