Very tough question. IMO, they're both very heavy crowd wise. Kudos to those who can get through it without biting someones head off.

I wanted to share a photopass picture.

Is there a compiled list anywhere, describing what holiday treats are available this year? I'm going to DL tomorrow and want to know where to go for something special!

LOL, I was almost escorted off property one christmas for snapping at the girl with a light wand directing traffic. We couldn't physically move, I don't know what she was expecting from us.

Looks like you have already started the new thread when I am at WDW Sherry. Finally we started the new Christmas thread. Very nice pics everyone and looks like I got to post some of my photos on the new Christmas thread.

I also got the Mickey Snowman Popcorn bucket at the MK today at Liberty Square. I know that this is part of the WDW thread, but I would like to show the Mickey Snowman Popcorn bucket that I picked up today.

Oh my goodness this place was packed today! We rode just the train and monorail, and even they had waits. I overheard a CM say 70,000 and believe it. They weren't letting people back in without hand stamps. The weather couldn't be better. Were at PPH on a floor that's been renovated so I'm OK with it this time, not usually a fan of this property. I will say I enjoyed WOC from here. There are Snowman buckets galore. Fireworks were cancelled due to the high elevation winds. Mandara was awesome! I wish I could have taken pics. Its so beautiful inside. I'm not sure we'll stay long Sunday after seeing todays crowds and it was a blockout day.

Yikes, thanks for the update! I'm going to DL tomorrow and Monday- I didn't expect it to be so busy. Oh well.

Did you see any special holiday desserts, by the way?

Desserts at dining locations or to go treats? I know there are a lot of pictures of treats in these thread and some recent trip reports.

Hi everyone. We were in the parks yesterday and I agree - yikes! Lots of crowds. As another person said, the rides didn't have terrible wait times and we used FPs for all the major ones but there were crowds. Lots of band groups there for the parade too. Splash had a 60 min wait, space had a 60 min wait and ran out of FP in the late afternoon, indy was 45-50 min wait. Jungle cruise was only 5 min and BTMMR had a 30 min wait but we got a FP around 3 for a 410 return time. I was so thankful for FPs yesterday! The only way to go. My husband was waiting for the Tangled M&G for our daughters and after standing in line for about 5 min a CM came and cut the line off 2 people in front of him. They said the next opportunity would be at 415 (this was around 245pm). We decided to skip it. We had tried to time it during the parade because we figured things would clear out but FL was still packed - Tangled had a huge line then PP had a 50 min wait. We had to wait 10 min for Snow White when we are used to it being a walk-on. We tried to go to Buzz during the 530 parade but it still had a 25 min wait. There were just crowds everywhere. We now have 2 sick kiddos so we are skipping today and going to head to the parks on Monday and Tuesday for our last day before our flight at 6 pm. We had not planned to go to the parks on Tues but after dealing with the crowds and having sick kiddos we think today will be better spent hanging at the hotel and doing laundry and swimming! Here are some photos of yesterday.
