Great picture of Breezy! The tour sounds like it would be fun. This is the weekend of Candlelight Processional, right? It sure would be nice if we could do a dining package & see the show. I would be up to joining the Holiday Tour. I took it back in 2002, so I'm sure it has changed some, plus touring with DISers is always fun.

I understand that Disneys California Adventure is undergoing a major facelift?? Has it been completed yet, or is it just beginning? Another question... How many days would you guys recommend that we put aside for both theme parks? 4? 6?? We will probably also want to take in some of LA's other attractions as well. We're open to all suggestions!!
California Adventure won't be completely done until 2012, however, as they finish things they will open them up, like the World of Color water show in the lagoon at California Adventure.

I would think four days would be good, but having said that, I would recommend a 6-day hopper, since the cost from 4-day to 6-day really isn't that much, and then you have the option of doing things in the area and going to the parks for a few hours to get your Disney fix.

Add me to the list, please! We will be getting to town December 21st and tentatively spending the 22nd through the 24th in the parks...and doing local stuff the 25th (like maybe visiting the aunt and uncle, if we tell them we are in town.) The last time I was at DL that close to Christmas was 1978! Are the crowds as bad as it is rumored?

Hi Ladies! I will be there the 21st and 22nd, and depending on my flight, may just go on the Happy Haunts tour with you all I may be going with a friend, with just the little boys Oct 8-11th, so would do the party then, but if not, I will probably go solo on Wed. night, just so I can say I've done it. I will be alone, on the tale end of a business trip to San Diego. I will miss Beth's bday, but I know you all will make it a great day. Anyhoo, thanks for starting this thread Heather.

We are arriving sometime during Thanksgiving weekend (probably Saturday becaue the flights are less expensive) and leaving December 5th or 6th.

DH and I have fallen in love with DL the last few visits. We have always made WDW our home this week in December but this year we will be staying at the Grand Cali and CANNOT WAIT!

My family is going too.

I had planned on going 12/6-12/11, but I'm on the fence now that I know the candlelight processional and CM holiday parties will likely be that week. We might have to push it back a week instead.

I'm assuming the week after Christmas is horribly crowded?

We dodged a bullet last year in August and the park, while pretty crowded, was definatly doable. I'm hoping for the same miracle this year!!!1
