finally caught up! Saw your Dismeet with Katmark over on her TR. You all seem like such a fun bunch!
I totally get how you feel with taking pictures. I'm the same way and spend most of my trips anywhere with anyone running to catch up!
I'm so jealous that you guys are going during Christmas time! Christmas and Disney are my two favorite things so I'm hoping that some day we'll get to go!

Love the shiny new badge - major congrats on being thread of the month!! Ahhhh...those Christmas pics of Disneyland make me wish I could visit there so badly! It looks gorgeous, especially the castle dusted with snow! Great WDW update as well. It's always kinda fun to close out a park. Too bad about the dud photopass person, that's always frustrating.

I am so loving your plans for the December trip. How could I not? They include us. It's too bad Michael is not coming though.

I am so looking forward to our character breakfast with you and your dining friends and hoping we can hit a few attractions together afterwards.

Yes, a car is a good thing when you have an early morning ADR and we are happy to give you and Em a ride.

And even though I saw the DL photos on FB and commented, I'll say again that I enjoyed them.

Not going to lie, I'm pretty bummed about missing out on almost everyone! I'm going too early! I'll have to read all about it and live vicariously through you all and your DisMeets!
Your plans sound fantastic.
The Disneyland photos are beautiful, and I would look at them again and again, no such thing as a redundant Disneyland Christmas photo.

I love all your trip reports, great pictures and writing . Congrats on thread of the month. We are going in December too and hope to meet up with Katmark . We enjoy all your dining reviews, I am trying to talk him in to Tusker House breakfast after seeing your pictures .

I can't wait to see your Cinderella Castle suite pictures. We have been lucky enough to see it twice on D23 tours and it is breathtaking every time. It is so special.

great plans for your upcoming trip - sounds like it will be amazing

Glad I read the whole thing though as after I read "meet ups with a group of ladies (and some hubbys and boyfriends)" I was trying to figure out what group Rob fit into

Great Disneyland pictures - they really decorate a lot more of the buildings than at MK. Have to say, for someone who has never been there, the 2-person wide Space Mountain still throws me

We leave WDW on December 2...foiled!

I am SO envious of your resort choices, both of those look amazing. There is so much Christmas fun to be had, too!

Sighhhh Sleeping Beauty Castle looks gorgeous.

Once again, you have some fantastic plans for your upcoming DW trip. Amazing meets (and probably some surprise ones), awesome dining I'm sure, great resorts, a Pah-ty and a Cruise.

Great intermission and pictures from DL. Lovin' it!!!
Thank you Dee! Again, it's about you guys doing the work to make this top thread thing happen.

It should induce a tear or two for sure since I'm a sucker for anything Holiday themed but throw in a castle and a fireworks show and I'm done!

Love your pics from DL! I was considering a trip in 2 weeks but am thinking it's probably not a good idea with WDW coming up again! (If I get a cheap hotel room it may still be an option though!)

I never even knew they had a "Thread of the Month". Congratulations!!
Hi Paula! Yay for December! We'll be able to spend more than a few hours together for sure! Hmmmmm.... I'm thinking maybe you have made a decision about a trip in 2 weeks. Works for me!

You need to make a post and tally up all of your Dismeets - I am SURE you'd blow us all out of the running!

The plans sound awesome! Bummer that the website is still acting screwy - I was hoping, by the time I need to make ADRs for our next trip that all would be running smoothly - only 100+ days until that date and I am starting to get nervous.

Loved the DL photos! And your friend's dd is just precious! Alli had no hair - just like her - for the longest time.

Looking forward to your next update Brenda!

D~
Thanks D~! Traveling to WDW during the holidays is a first for us.

I'm not even close to your Dismeet count - even with this trip included! You are part of the Dismeet Royal Court my friend!

Everything ended up ok except for the first day that I tried to do FP+. I finally abandoning any FP+ plans that day. Everything should be worked out soon you'd think.

Like A, Em didn't have a lot of hair until she was nearly 2. I wanted to put her hair in braids and ponytails but it took awhile to get to that point.

Hehe, well slow and steady wins the race Brenda, so if this is still going in 2015, that means you win!!

I feel like I got a sneak peak at all your travel plans!! YAY!

Obviously you are going to LOVE the Christmas season at WDW. It's seriously off the chain. And don't forget about the Castle Dream Lights on Cinderella Castle.

And OF COURSE I am super duper insanely excited for our get togethers. I can't wait!

Aww Disneyland always decorates so nicely, maybe even more than Magic Kingdom. So pretty.

And Em and the little girl... too precious!
We know you so well Rob!

Not sure what I'd win if this thing goes into 2015 but likely a gold watch for its retirement would be fitting!

I second your insane excitement!

DL hasn't put up all of their decorations yet. They are still doing the change over since the front gates still had the Halloween décor and a few other places. Once they put up the tree and the Main Street decorations it will be super festive.

Kathy and Mark are awesome!

As much as I lag behind so much with my camera I keep thinking that one day my little travel party will appreciate all the photos. I'm still waiting.

I'm still on the dreaming side of the Disney at the Holidays trip. I can only imagine how beautiful it will be.

Thank you Emma!

Isn't that castle beautiful? And they don't even have the lights on it yet.

I agree! I feel like I'm part of something special when they have to shoo you out of the park late at night!

Hi Andrea! You are here for the good stuff! The Castle Suite makes an appearance on day 8. I'm ready to start day 5 soon so with the pace I'm going it may be a little bit. There's another thread on the TR boards that has a family that stayed in the Dream Suite as part of a vacation sweepstakes you may want to check it out as well. (I need to come back and share the link since I'm behind with her TR it called Boo to You and a Dream Suite Too.)

I hope you stick around until then.

Hi Kathy! I'm so very glad those plans include you! I wish Michael would have come as well. Shooting for next June or August though.

We'd be glad to enjoy some rides/attractions after breakfast with you guys. (We used our FP+ reservations at AK for our time in the afternoon over there.) Thanks, we'll take you up on your ride offer.

I know Wendy. I really wish our dates had lined up but you only have a week to go! Super exciting.

Awww thanks about the DL photos!

Hi Tracy!! I'm so glad that you are here and reading! Yay, you are part of the KatMark fan club too! That would be nice to run into you as well.

Thanks for reading the dining part of our trips. You definitely shouldn't lack choices at TH. And did you see Mickey waffles and Krispy Kreme?? Yum!

Oh my gosh! You've been in the Dream suite more than once!!!! That's insane! And you'll never forget any of the details right? It is just so spectacular.

Thanks Phil!

You are TROUBLE Mister! Allow me to clarify! I was definitely referring to my dining divas travel party who are women and THEIR men. Rob is taken by Stacey so we can put any other rumors to rest.

So exciting that your trip is so close!! And it's your first time going during the holiday season. I love love love the Dreamlights and all that pizzazz!

Um, can I come along for the Epcot bar crawl? I'm telling you, I would totally fly down for like a day if I could.

I'm also loving your super fancy Top Thread banner.

Finally caught up as well. I'll also be in WDW the first week of December so don't be surprised if a stranger says hi, although with all your great trip reports and pictures I'm guessing that already happens (DIS celebrity), I'm also hoping to get a chance to meet Rob since we have a couple overlapping FP+'s.

I loved your DL intermission pics, I went for the first time last month and every time I see pictures now I just want to go back (already booked for Jan 15th ) and take more time to just look around at the details rather than running from ride to ride.

Can't wait for more...

You are living the life Brenda! I've read through your last report and this one over the last week or so and thoroughly enjoyed them both (thanks to Rob's shout outs on his TR). You and Emily are adorable and I think it's great that you're able to make these special memories.

Looking forward to more!!
