I'll let ya know if it changes - but at this point I'm not counting on it.
I'm sure we all have pics of our kid's crying, we could send them in for you to make a collage. Post it on the wall in the office with a sign that reads "December trip canceled, SEE WHAT YOU'VE DONE!"

Bummer you can't make it but given the number of trips you seem to make, any time I go I probably have about a 20% chance of being there at the same time as you.

Didn't they have a free dining or 7 for 4 deal going on this past year? That could really affect crowd levels. From what I've been hearing, Disney is trying to "phase out" their discounts this year.

yes I hope that, plus the rain outs for the parade taping was the problem this yr, and it does not become a trend for the Dec wks.Don't get me wrong waiting 60 mins for a ride is still better then being at work.Plus it is a little more bearable waiting in line in cooler Dec temps then in hot Aug temps

last time i was down for these two weeks , the weekends got packed, the locals come in on the weekends but during the week its isnt any worse than october. that was 2007. we get to the parks at rope drop and by 12-1 we head back to okw. than head back to the parks around 4 or so. at rope drop you can get on the most popular rides 3-4 times before theres a line. fast pass and wait for 1 ride and you can get on alot before 10am. there are only a few times of the year i would never go. christams week, easter week, spring break. if you want to see packed, show up the week between christmas and new year. the line for the resort bus's back up to the mk check point.

They did. They had extended free dining through most of December to keep bookings up. I've read the same things about their goal of phasing out the discounts for 2010 - but - it does remain to be seen how the economy goes through the summer before they fully determine whether or not they will reduce them or continue to offer them.

Any thoughts on the breakfast idea?. Would most likely be reasonably easy to pull off and would be a great meet & greet.
