We just got home last night and had a blast!! It was our first time during Holidaytime and it was so beautiful! We stayed at DLH and although we missed decor there (it being so early in the season), the park was enough to keep us satisfied.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to all the people on this thread for all the amazing info I have read and ended up using over the last two months. Especially to Sherry, you have helped SO SO SO much, way more than you know!

This time we got annual passes, so we'll be back soon, but we'll miss the holiday magic.

Best part, the Holiday Tour with front row seats, I was even more excited than my 4-year-old nephew

I am so glad you had a wonderful time and that the holiday tour was such a hit. Glad you go to enjoy a little of the holiday magic.

We did the holiday tour and fantasmic premium viewing, but I was pretty skeptical about paying so much. I have to say it was SO worth it! We had never been during the holidays and never seen Fantasmic, so it was such a treat to experience both like that for the first time.

My 4-year-old nephew was a "bit" of a handful this time around, especially during the tour, but it still wasn't a bad experience. He was way too antsy during the tour, but when it came to IASW and treat/parade time, he calmed down, thank God!

Can you tell me more about the tour and your experience with a 4 year old? DD is almost 5 and we'll be taking her so I want to be prepared! Also, how do you like the tour? And is there a holiday tour pin this time? If so, what does it look like?
Also, did you see the fireworks and if you did, where did you wait and for how long?

Thank yoU!

He is four and a half and sometimes a handful in general. If you're child is mild mannered, then she'll be fine. He did okay at first and liked listening to Christmas music on the headphones. About an hour in, he was over it and we skipped the stroller because we didn't want to be holding the group back with the train ride, etc. Him and my DD7months were the only children in our group. The other group had 3 children, it would have been nice to be with them and not worry so much about him being antsy. He didn't want to ride Haunted Mansion, but once we got to IASW and the parade/treats, he loved it. In his defense, we dragged him around that day with no nap before the tour because of the timing. It was also day 4 of a 5 day trip to DLR. He was pretty much over everything at that point...lol!

I liked the tour, there were quite a few interesting facts. Our guide was Nathaniel and he was adorable and chipper, as they all are

There was a holiday tour pin and it was adorable, I will try to post a picture later today. It was one of those toy soldiers and the pin had dangling legs for the soldier. Super cute!

As far as fireworks go, we watched them from the hotel room that day since it was about 2 hours after the parade for them and our kids were toast. Friday we watched them from Plaza Inn's upper patio, I always like watching them from there and feel like you get a decent view, although a little skewed. Saturday, I think they were cancelled due to the rain, we were hotel bound most of that day to pouring rain, but we didn't see any happening from the window even in the breaks of rain. Sunday we watched from our premium seats for Fantasmic. All we were great views and we were near snow each time, but we never watched from directly down main street. We got the best castle view from Main Street, but I really loved watching them from ROA.

Just checking in...finally got all of our reservations set for the trip. We will be there 11/28 to 12/4. Based on info from the fine folks in this thread we're going to try the Holiday tour, reserved Fantasmic seating and a WoC dinner. We always have to eat at Blue Bayou and Steakhouse 55 so those are set as well. Thanks for the great information, opinions and pictures everyone!

I just can't believe that the Christmas season is here already and we're already hearing about peoples Holiday trips.

I have to admit that I'm a tiny bit sad about it too. The build up is soooooooooooo much fun and before I blink my trip will be over.

I can really relate. I alwats get a bit sad about a week before our trip because I know the excitement and hype will all be over. I really feel like planning is half the fun! Have fun on your trip.
