Probably a lot of people, but we will be among them from mid December to early January. Our sixth or seventh year for this time of year. Decorations, golf cart parade, MBYBQ, Christmas dinner (maybe a pre-frozen ham or turkey breast with the trimmings, New Years eve....

Why do you ask?

Hey Ken and Judy, We were there last December. I love all the decorations of the campsites. It really puts you in that Christmas frame of mind. I made a Cinderella's Castle and had it timed to great Disney music. Did you see it by chance? We were in the 500 loop.
Would be great to meet some folks online and then meet them in person at Christmas.

Have a Magical day
Dave

We have been there every December for the past 5 years, but we're going to miss this December.

We'll be at "the Fort" in October/November and head to California and Disneyland in December.

We've always wanted to see the Haunted Mansion decorated for Halloween/Christmas with all the Nightmare Before Christmas theming!

So this is our year!

But we'll see you all next December!

Dave,

I saw your castle last year and I was so blown away that I took a video and posted it on YouTube

Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZpzL...eature=related Watch it right to the end folks, it's a great show!

You did an awesome job, sorry we're going to miss it this year. See you in 2010 though! I want to try to capture a better video when I see it again!

Gary

Thanks Gary and Tigger, I had a great time with the castle show. Met so many people it made my head swim. A few people said the only thing missing from the show was Tinkerbell. Well guess what, I think, I have figured out how to do that!!! So this year, Tinkerbell has agreed to make several special appearence's for me (she's such a sweetheart). Thank you Gary for posting the castle on Youtube, you are too kind.

We will be at Fort Wilderness from Dec 13 to the 27th. I can't wait!

Dave

Dave,

I just watched the video. I missed it last year, but my DW saw it with some looping relatives (double meaning). You did a fantastic job. We'll be sure to look for it this year. Our decorations are not as technical, but go mainly toward a variety of blowups, lights, etc. Last year DW drove our van just to haul blowups, but won't do that again. We both sideswiped the concrete construction lane markers on I-85 just south of Atlanta on the way home. I'm not sure they will ever finish that stretch, so we'll take what the cargo trailer can carry along with the golf cart.
