I officially booked DLH! Woohoo. I have been dreaming of staying on property forever. My girls are going to be almost 7 and almost 3 when we go. I am not going to tell them until I pick my daughter up from school on the day we leave. I am hoping we can fly even though we are only a 6 hour drive. Adds to the excitement, as they have never been on an airplane before. Can't wait!

That's so great! We waited and waited for an Entertainment rate to show up for our dates, but they never did. Maybe I didn't start looking early enough. We found a decent rate at Carousel ($89/night), so we settled on that.

Nice! Your dates are very close to ours. I hear that the week of the 10th should be pretty light crowd wise.

Fun! It'll be crowded, but your hotel is right across the street. Nice access!

Nice! JetBlue and Southwest should be releasing new flights for that time period soon.

Nice! I'm doing something similar. My mom hasn't been in almost 30 years and she's agreed to come for a few days. I can't wait to share all of this with her!

We'll be there from December 10 - 13. We are booked at the BWPPI, but if I get a GCH pin code, I'm going for it!

Our very first visit to Disneyland (and first trip to the US) is in December, looks like 9-13th December at this stage. Still trying to decide between DLH or PPH, depends on the budget!

Yeah! Our dates are nearly the same. It sounds like a great time to be there.

We (Me, DH, DS14 and DS12) will be there 12/23-12/28 staying at the Carousel. My sister in law and her family are joining us (same dates, same hotel, family of 5) for the trip. We are flying down from Oregon and they are driving down from Northern California.

We are DLR veterans and did our first WDW trip last year. It was great fun, but all 4 of us were sure that DLR is hands down the better park for our touring style. We prefer lots of riding and less shows/character time, so the more compact style of parks is ideal. That, and it was just wrong to not be able to eat a dole whip INSIDE the Tiki Room!

Here's to a great Christmas at Disneyland!

Our extended trip with both sides of the family will be 11/21-12/1. Will be cool to see all the changes from December of 2010 to now. Will be the first trip for my 2 nephews aged 6 and 8. Perfect ages for Disneyland I think!!!
