I was wondering if anyone has had to take the Magical Express after 10pm and pick up their own luggage. I will be arriving at 12:10am and I just get a little nervous about the process. Can anyone who has been through it late at night tell me what the process is like? (I did it once before during the day I am just nervous about it being so late at night).

We just booked and paid in full for our Christmas vacation. We'll be driving from the Boston area (are we crazy?) and staying at CBR from 12/26-1/2/2010! I'm nervous about the weather......will it rain, will it be cold? Please be warm (ish)! I'm a little nervous about the crowds but we're determined to have a more leisurely vacation than our past two Disney trips. Don't get me wrong, they were STUPENDOUS vacations but fastpaced.

I found it surprisingly easy to book our ADRs and get almost everything we wanted.
12/27 Boma @ 7:05 PM (loved it here last November)
12/28 Raglan Road @7:15 PM (have been wanting to try this for years now)
12/29 Crystal Palace @ 2:00 (have been reading some bad reviews)
12/30 Tusker House @ 8:10 AM and Cape May @ 7:15 PM
12/31 Teppan Edo @ 2:40 PM (Want to get our big meal out of the way so we can "hunker down" for Illuminations
1/1/10 Narcoossees @ 7:05 PM ( a repeat - we love it here)
I'm really excited to try some new restaurants. Tried to book a bunch of buffets as I have a picky eater who still talks about Chef Mickeys, Boma, and 1900 Park Faire.

Anyone else going that week? Nervous about crowds? Weather? What will you pack for clothes?

added ... looks like you have a good plan getting to Epcot nice and early on 31st Dec .... I was there in 2004 for NYE and it was the busiest I've ever seen a Disney park, it was an amazing night though - Illuminations is even more spectacular!!

I have eaten at Crystal Palace 4-5 times before and every time it's been fantastic... I've read soo many bad reviews online of Disney restaurants that I have absolutely loved.. so I've stopped reading the reviews! Restaurant dining can be very subjective .... depends on the mood of the guests, servers, chefs, etc!!

38 days for us.. and now it's November.. so we're going next month !!!!

I am so excited....since it is 11/1, that means that we have exactly 1 month from today until we are back at our Happy Place and seeing the Christmas decorations for the first time....(can't wait to see the castle all lit up ). Well since we have made our ADRs back in Sept., I have been tweaking and trying to make it so that our vacation will be a magical one (since this is my birthday present from my lovely DH and 2 DDs). So here is my finalized dining plans which I am not going to touch any more.

- 12/1 Arrival Day 1900 Park Fare Dinner @ 5:30pm
- 12/2 Akershus Breakfast @ 8:05am
- 12/2 Garden Grill Dinner @ 6:25pm
- 12/3 MVMCP (no ADRs made)
- 12/4 Le Cellier for Lunch @ 11:30am
- 12/4 Teppan Edo Dinner @ 6:10pm
- 12/5 CRT Dinner @ 8:10pm
- 12/6 Cape May Character Breakfast @ 7:30am
- 12/7 California Grill @ 5:30pm
- 12/8 O'Hana Character Breakfast @ 8:35am
- 12/9 Captain's Grill Breakfast @ 7:30am
- 12/9 Yachtsman's Steakhouse @ 8:00pm
- 12/10 Captain's Grill Lunch @ 12:00pm....Departure Day

37 days and a wake up. Need to call and check to see what my flights have been changed to so I can readjust them. It would be so much easier and consumer related if they would call to see how you the customer wanted the change. But I guess that isn't their thinking so I will call at least once each week till we leave. Lois
