Snow-Wigd and the Christmas Elves, a December pre-trip!

Today was ADR day! So I decided it was time to get this party started.
I imagine there will be some bumps in the road between now and December 20th so hang on to your seats!
I'll be back with the cast, the dates, and all the other important stuff.....

Grumpy, freaky, nightmarish? Let's hope he gets that fixed.

It's in my revolving ticker but perhaps a little hard to read, I've added every sort of date I can think of on that thing.

I totally understand, I've been having a tough time with all the fall trips and DIS-meets just around the corner. We got spoiled last year with 4 trips so close together that it kills me to wait 6 months between trips. I know, poor me.


********************
Those of you that have followed us on our previous adventures know the usual crew.
Marc, Baylor and I (the mom). We are taking a few more this Christmas! We have Harper, our granddaughter 17 months, her mommy and daddy, Megan and Matt (oldest daughter), Keeley (younger daughter) and Max, our German exchange student. At times will be referred to at FES......especially when in trouble as he has been lately!

The details are flying out very early in the morning of December 20. I think we need to be at the airport about 5:30.
Arriving at Orlando around noon.
Spending 5 fun filled nights at Kidani in a 2 bedroom villa.
Flying out the 25th at 5:00 in the afternoon.

We've got plans and ADRs.
Still trying to figure some things out, especially Fantasmic. We have a couple of first time visitors so we want them to see all the cool stuff. I know, I know, not enough time in an almost 6 day trip but this will be as commando as they want it to be. I imagine some of mine and Marc's time will be spent at Kidani with a sleeping baby. That's OK, just as long as I make my ADRs and see Spectro. I unbelievably missed in this past summer and we were there for 2 weeks!

Up next, Where are we eating? What are we doing? What Disney tradition am I breaking???
