I'm doing something similar. We're going the 8th-13th and my birthday is the 19th. I think that still counts as a birthday trip.

Dining reservations at DL are less of a fixture than at WDW and if you wanted to you can get away with not making any. Counter service locations are tasty and sometimes you can score a walkup at a table service. That said, I recommend making a reservation if you plan to eat at the Blue Bayou or Carthay Circle since those both fill up fast.

I haven't been in a few years, so I am not sure if they have changes to their no show policy. Someone else should be able to answer that bit.

We are doing a similar thing...we are doing Christmas on the 22nd with the grandparents (our kids think we are going to SoCal to visit family) and the kids' last present will be a giant box filled with a helium balloon bouquet & a letter that says, "SURPRISE!!! Your going to DL." I am making shirts for each of them, and then they will have goodie bags filled with fun stuff for the 16hr car ride. I am so excited idk if I can wait the 101 days.

Here is one of the shirts...sorry it's so big


I hope everyone has a magical trip!!!

I am totally bummed. We have to cancel our trip. DH has to have heart surgery the first part of November, so now we don't have any vacation to use, and of course, the funds are now gone as well.

Oh well, I guess there is always next Christmas. I will start saving now, then I can be sure to be able to stay on site again.

Have fun everyone!
