When are the different "Santas" at Epcot? Only on Christmas day or are they there longer? I know that Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parade is around after Christmas.

Hello all!! Subbing!! We are going Dec 5-13...our 3rd time in Dec! We really love Dec/Jan...but wanted to see all the decor before it got crazy!!!! The only tip I have is not to go too crazy buying stuff! ha It all seems so needed when u are there and it's all Christmas-y... but we try to wait and let the kids look all week, then toward the last day, we shop. Whatever they have (or we have) really felt we wanted the whole week, is usually what we get! Just a little $$$$ tip for ya!!!
Also, just take time to watch your children's faces..it's priceless

Thanks for the tips! We'll be there December 19-28 staying at the Grand Floridian for our first ever Christmas visit. I can't wait.

I was just going through this thread for the first time and it looks like there are a couple of earlier questions that didn't get answered.

This is a Disneyland thing, not Disney World.

2)Is there a schedule that will come out as to who is speaking which nights? If so, when can I expect it to be made avaliable!!
It will be my first time to CP too. I have been told that the program runs just under an hour in length. I have been told that, even with the dinner package, you should still show up a half hour to 45 mins. before showtime to get a good seat upfront. The schedule isn't up yet, and it is rumoured to come out in early August. I believe Steven Curtis Chapman is the only marrator who has leaked his dates to his fans... sometime in early December.

I have a question: If the MVMCP only lasts through December 18th, does this mean there are no Christmas festivities after that date?

They don't do the charged Christmas party, but they do the fireworks and the shows everyday until C Day. Or so I think!! ha!!! pretty much same stuff, just for free... correct me if that's wrong!!

It's our first Disney Christmas Trip, too! We have always wanted to go and can't wait to get there! Have done lot's of studying and, of course, we know it is impossible to do everything, everywhere. We'll be there from Dec. 14-Dec. 19 at the AKL-Kidani Village. Also, our first time at AKL!
