Are there any dining packages for Christmas eve that we should know about?

I'm so accustomed to WDW at the holidays and I have zero experience with DLR around the same time. I feel a bit like a fish out of water.

Do they still do the characters in pajamas? It looks like they have a full night on Christmas Eve now, whereas the post with the pictures was from an early closure night.

Finally, what do we need to know about Fantasmic and CP out there? No reserved seating, right? Just walk up?

Thanks

Does anyone know where I can find 2012 Christmas day menus, that is if they're out yet? Or any word on what Carthay Circle might be offering?

The carthay circle menu is postes in this thread about 30 days ago. I quoted it, so check my posts to find it or scroll through the pages.

I saw it last week. It was ok. Not sure why it's called 4D as it was barely 3D!

So nothing like Muppets or Bugs Life (can't remember what that one is called lol)? Too bad.

Talking

Wow, feeling lucky today! Called to book the Holiday tour for Christmas Eve --- apparently everyone else was too! wanted the evening parade, so the 3:15 tour, called at 7:50am, 7:55am, 7:58am, 8:00am, 8:01am and somewhere around that time they opened for business... I guess I called the main vacation planning line and wanted to make sure I had the right # so I looked online and saw a tour specific # so I hung up and called again --- about 8:05am. Was on hold for a good 20 mins or so.

Talked to a great cast member... When I said I wanted the afternoon tour for 7 people she looked and immediately came back with OMG, that's filling up fast we need to rush through your order... So we rushed through all the entries and in the end got my 7 spots and afterwards she said there were only 2 more spots left

Now on Monday I need to call for Desset Dining and then I think our fixed schedule items will all be in place!

YAY! Congrats! We had an interesting experience booking the holiday tour as well (for earlier in the month). I called right at 8 and was on hold for a LONG time. When the CM answered, she said they weren't accepting reservations until 9. Instead of making me call back, though, she took my number and promised to call me the minute they came online. She said they were booking this tour fast every day and didn't want me to be too late. Ten minutes later she called and said the system came online early. We were the first to book. Gotta love Disney custmer service!

Now on Monday I need to call for Desset Dining and then I think our fixed schedule items will all be in place!
