Smile Christmas Day/Eve Menus

Does anyone know when they announce their Christmas menus? I have seen the 2011 menus at themouseforless (would link, but I don't have enough posts yet) but with the Carthay Circle Restaurant being new and the place to go for WoC preferred viewing access I'm really interested to know what they'll be serving... Any ideas on when the menus would be available and any speculation on what they would serve?

Thanks.

J.

Anyone know when they post the official DL/DCA park hours for the month of December? We visited WDW last December and will be visiting DL this December for our first stay at DL during the holidays!

I think they post hours six weeks out. Which, with what I've read is a shorter advance notice than WDW.

Just booked 12/25-12/30!!!

I know it will be crazy busy but we have been before, and I'm super excited for all the Christmas decorations

Group of 8 and I'm the planner for the group. Eeeek! Oh who am I kidding I LOVE planning . I've planned multiple vacations for this group.

DH grandpa 88
DH 39
Me 36
MIL 67
DH'S Aunt 55
Family Friend 64
DS1 11
DS2. 8

We are staying at Best Western Raffles-first time off property (we have done DL once 2007 and DW 2011). DLH was $1500 more .

We are on the dining plan DH grandpa bought it so we are using it . Anyone with any tips to maximize? We got the 5 day plan.

I also need to rent a scooter for DH grandpa. He thought it was amazing last year at DW. Anyone got a favorite company? And do we need a gac for him to use the wheel chair entrance? Didn't last year at WDW but I am just curious. Any tips for traveling with him at DL?

This trip was totally out of the blue so I am starting to plan today. I'm making my way through this whole thread do forgive me if the above questions are answered.

We will be there the 16th to the 22nd. I'm graduating from nursing school on the 14th and we are taking our kids to Disneyland to celebrate!

Hi all, I booked our first trip to Disneyland 12/25-01/01.

We arrive the evening of Christmas day and leave early morning on the 1st. This trip is a surprise for our 2 boys ages 11 and 5 on the trip. They will find out Christmas morning and then we head straight to the airport for our 5+ hour flight.

I'm really excited but I'm a bit nervous about the crowds as we have never travelled anywhere during a holiday!

We will be spending 5 days at the parks and probably 12/30 will be a rest day/DTD/visiting the resorts... not sure yet. But we want to be well rested for NYE since we will spend the whole day at the park.

Can anyone tell me if we will be allowed re-entry to the park on NYE if we get our hands stamped and the park reaches capacity?

I will be there December 1st-7th (leaving the 7th, so in the park for 5.5 days!)
I am going with my cousin and her partner, her partner's sister, and my 4 year old nephew (their son)! I am so very excited, I am going down a day earlier then the rest of them, and they are not telling my nephew where they are going until they get to the airport. They won't tell him I am there at all, I will just be waiting by the statue in front of the castle for them they day they arrive. We went to WDW together last year and every day he asks when Aunt Molly is taking him back, we have a little mutual admiration society thing going on, both for each other and all things Disney! He very excitedly told me about the "new Disneyworld in California called Disneyland" the other day and since he is a huge Cars fan his head just might explode when he gets there!
I take a Disney trip every other year, but the last 3 trips have been to WDW, so going this year to DL is a double treat. Not only am I getting a trip two years in a row, but, I am gettting to go back to my beloved DL and see the HMH again, and hopefully Jack will be there My husband and I were married on Halloween and had a Nighmare Before Xmas wedding, so to say that HMH is my most favorite ride ever is a bit of an understatement!

In any event, I cannot wait, I feel like stopping strangers on the street to tell them all about my trip because I am so excited, but I fear most of them would not understand. Instead my poor husband (who is staying home) has to hear alllllll about it!

Bring on the Mickey eared gingerbread cookies!!!

I can't even imagine how fun this will be for you! I remember commercials were parent surprised their kids with a Disney trip. We've never been able to keep that good a secret!

My experience is that you can get back into the parks. Are you staying on property?

It is also my experience that people are nuts about staking out spots for the fireworks early in the afternoon (blankets etc. with someone holding the spot). I like fireworks but really wouldn't take my park time mantling a spot.

We've been at WDW or DL for the past 6 years on NYE. This past year was the first year I convinced my gang to go back into the park after a full day to count down the new year. I was soooo excited. Had to laugh when it was so foggy we couldn't even see the fireworks!

Welcome 2012! We think we can see you.

We are staying at BWPPI thanks to all the great advice on these boards to stay within short walking distance to the parks especially Christmas week.

It is going to be really hard to keep it a secret but I think because we're going to WDW in November, I can focus the kids' attention on that. I even booked eveything before telling DH, I had to make sure he wouldn't blow the surprise!

I think we are going to take it real slow on the 31st only doing walk on rides or shows so that the kids will still have enough energy for the countdown to the new year.
