54 Days to go!

BOY do we need this vacation! So excited! Work is going great (been here three months now after 10 months of unemployment!), DIL graduated as LPN this summer and started last week at CMC here in Charlotte and things were going great! That's when the other shoe drops, right?

DS#2's apartment caught on fire last Wednesday - his half wasn't burned (the other half burned TO THE GROUND), but still a lot of damage from water/smoke. Geesh!! So he's staying with me until he and his roommate figure it out. No one was hurt, everything can be replaced (thank goodness for renter's insurance) but at family dinner last night, EVERYONE agreed, this is a MUCH NEEDED, MUCH ANTICIPATED vacation that is going to be AWESOME!!

I hope someone can help with this --- I'm using the my Disney app and I linked my ressie and 1day1park tickets (that were won from a contest) to my MBs...is it possible to still upgrade the tix to 1 day park hoppers??? I'm hoping I didn't mess up bad--cause my family is counting on hopping. The tix that are linked show up as 1 day base tix...thanks for y'all's help!

Sounds like it is needed. Much to celebrate and much to escape. Sounds like a perfect time to visit the Happiest Place on Earth!

Glad your son is ok.

Hi Everyone,

I should be arriving in Disney in 2 days but because of a quick trip down a flight of stairs we had to postpone our trip. We are hoping to re-book in early December. While I have been to Disney many times, I have never been to WDW during the holidays. What are the must see things to do with a 6 year old girl?

Thank you,

There are storytellers at Epcot who tell the Christmas traditions of their countries.

You can also check out the campsites at Fort Wilderness, Many of the campers put up great Xmas decorations.

Will be there on Nov 29th-Dec 6th. Doing MVMCP on the 5th also. We wanted to do the Candlelight Processional but the two people we most wanted to see, we already have our days full at another park. I had thought about park hopping over but I'm afraid if we don't do the package with the guaranteed seating we could have to stand in line forever and then not be able to get in at all or get a seat, I really don't want to stand through the entire thing. Anyway, so ready to go. I love going at Christmas, it's so beautiful. I have been reading a lot on this year and I'm getting antsy about it being sooooo crowded. I know there is never a slow time for Disney anymore, but I would just like a little lower crowd level. Keeping my fingers crossed, got all my FP+ choices made, so I know I will get to ride all the must do's at least once. We like late EMH also, so that gives a little more opportunity to experience some lower crowds. I wish we were a rope drop family, but we are soooo not. My girls would be so grumpy (I know this from experience) that I would not be able to deal with them. So we sleep later and stay out later. It works for us. But, we will be at Disney so it will all be good.
