I don't know if this has been mentioned here lately, but since I know Goofy's is a popular choice for holiday meals, FYI it's been relocated temporarily.

Dec. 14, 2010 – Jan. 21, 2011: Goofy’s Kitchen dining room and buffet will be
relocated to Magic Kingdom Ballroom 1 & 4 due to several projects taking place in
the restaurant. Normal operating hours and offerings will be maintained.
MousePlanet posted a photo on their twitter. I think it looks kinda weird

I'm curious as to the comment from a poster about waiting in line for candy canes...what is that all about?
I will be visiting alone, primarily to see the decorations while they are still up.
If I go on Dec. 2 or 3, do I have a fair chance of seeing most of them?
If I arrive at rope drop, do I have a decent chance of riding some things without an hour's wait in line?
And lastly, how can I decide which of the special holiday treats are worthy of my interest, money and time spent in line to buy them?
Thanks in advance...

Jan 2 is a toss-up. I avoid Sundays because all annual passes are usually open that day. But...you've got everyone getting ready to get back into their normal schedules the following day. Going Jan 3, you'll be fine crowd-wise since everyone will be back at school. They're going to be starting to take down the decorations. They won't completely go down overnight.

Any of the Holiday treats are yummy!

So it did start, I couldn't remember when it was happening. When we were there last weekend, we could tell they were getting ready. It's got to be done for the construction. At least it's better lit than Goofy's Kitchen!

Good grief, I just noticed that I said I was going to be there DEC. 2nd or 3rd and I meant Jan. I'm sure more figured that out as I said New Year's.
Thanks for your comments, lapdwife. Sounds like I need to go on the 3rd, and hopefully, I will still see many decorations.

FYI, just so you know, our school district (Corona/Norco) is off the first week of Jan. Furlough week for the teaches, extra week off for the kids. We are only about 30 min. from DLR so you can expect people from our area to be there. Inc. me. It still won't be as bad as before Jan. 2nd, but it may not be as empty as you would like.

Okay, I know I have reindeer pix from last year but they are on a different computer. Here is one taken in 2008 of my favorite reindeer


2008

Do they look furrier than this year? To me they look the same.

Here's the picture I borrowed from the first page.

(My favorite reindeer is either first or second in this line.)

Oh, sorry, I guess I should have read more!

Maybe they were fuzzy last year, I remember it as being colder early in Dec. Until Tuesday, we were in the 80's here so maybe they need more cold to get furrier. If that's the case they should get furrier real soon. It's so cold now that my fingers are almost freezing while typing this. I know, to the rest of the country it's not that cold but any time it dips below 60 I'm freezing!

I saw a photo recently of the real reindeers, and they just don’t look as furry as they were last year.. I just remember them having more of a coat on them.. that is why I asked if they maybe had gotten a hair cut

they should let us pet them.. don't you think?

Oy...I have a PS there for January 17th. I also think it looks kind of weird but we'll see. Thanks for the heads up!

I plan on making a bunch of cookies as gifts for my coworkers (I even bought the Mickey ones on my last trip) but that cookie cutter looks like it'll be a great addition to what I have. I'll definitely try to look for it at the Walgreens near my house. Thanks for sharing!
