Looks like a fun filled week! You may want to consider no dinner ADR during MVMCP. When we went to the Halloween party, the crowds could start to come in at 4 pm. If you leave the park to go to dinner you'll be missing some of the party. Maybe try for a breakfast adr that day? You will love Jellyrolls if you go!

What is the general consensus about DHS closing early for POP Warner? I know last year they closed at 5pm. Was there any rumors yet about this year?? We only have DHS planned for 1 day and it happens to be 12/5. I may need to rearrange my trip a little so we can see Osborne lights....maybe not. Is 1 day enough for Animal Kingdom? Really? If we did DHS during the day on the 5th, we could come back on the 8th to see just Osborne Lights or use the Evening Magic Hours on the 9th after our MK Day. I just don't want to stretch the limits of us being over tired and ruining our trip. We have a lot planned as it is already but would hate to let our WDW vacay slip by without seeing Osborne Lights.

We have:
2: Travel, Ohana Dinner
3: Epcot AM, Biergarten Lunch, MK PM (parade, fireworks, chapeau)
4: MK Day, Whispering Canyon Dinner, Chip and Dale Campfire Program
5: DHS, Beaches & Cream Dinner, Epcot Illuminations
6: Lazy Morning/DTD, MVMCP, 5:00 Harmony Barbershop (DD)
7: Animal Kingdom, BOMA Dinner
8: Epcot AM, Le Cellier Lunch, DHS or AK PM
9: MK Day, 8:05 CP, 11:30 Pirates League, (Hoping for BOG, we have LTT right now)
10: 9am Ohana Breakfast, Monorail ride/DTD, 4:30 Magical Express to MCO

I would go for the Osborne lights on the 9th after MK since it's Evening EMH at DHS. Lower crowds to fight at the lights

Probably a very good option - I hear MK gets MOBBED and they often have had to 'close' the park by lunchtime Whatever your decision, I would certainly avoid MK on christmas day

AK closes at 5pm on the 12/8. So DHS might be a better option.

We are having the same problem as you. 12/5 was to be our only DHS Day but I feel I need to come up with a plan B if the park closes so early. I definitely don't want to miss the Osborne Lights.

You might want to check the hours again. I thought I remembered a post last week saying that DHS was closing at 5pm on 12/5.

That is correct. I checked Disney's site last month to see what day DHS was closing early. They have December 5th down for closing early (I think it's 5 pm) due to Pop Warner's party.
