I've been at DLR during the NAMM show for the past 3 years. Honestly, it's not that bad. I'm more concerned about some of the closures while we're there. With no F! or fireworks, WOC will likely be packed (esp. since it's going down right after that weekend). There are some in our group who have never been, so they'll probably try to brave the crowds. Me and my 7 month pregnant self will probably be watching from VGC!

We found a VGC reservation for sale that we simply couldn't pass up, so we're taking an unplanned trip from Jan. 13-Jan 18. First time staying at VGC as well as the first time DD5 will have a vacation with the grandparents, so everyone is super-excited.

How bad are the crowds Jan 2 - 6?
We went for four days in November, the week of Thanksgiving and it was horrible! Just wondering how it compares to the first week of January, since most schools will still be on vacation.

Although the official calendar shows that WoC will not be presented and shows GRR as closed for Refurb, it does not list SSS yet. I'm hoping that refurb got cancelled.

I will be taking my sister and 3 year old from January 15-21. I am running the Tink 1/2 Marathon, and my sister just graduated from college. We decided to tour the parks the Wednesday - Friday before the race since Monday is a holiday. I'm hoping we'll encounter less crowds that way.

Staying at the La Quinta Anaheim Suites on Clementine. Has anybody walked to the parks from that hotel? We'll have a car, but I'm hoping to save on parking by walking.

It's getting so close for many of us. Ours is at the end of January and I don't think I'm quite feeling the excitement yet. Maybe once Christmas is over and done with? Have a blast everyone!!

Our trip is near the beginning of the month and it hasn't quite kicked in for us either. We decided to delay telling our 5 year old until the morning we leave and that secret is killing me!!

A bit of a spontaneous trip. We had to put down our 12 1/2 year old golden retriever on Wed. last week and Grandma died on Friday.

We need some DLR magic to perk us up!
I didn't see your post until today, I just want to tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your grandmother, and your furry companion.
I hope you are able to have a good holiday season, and a wonderful trip to Disneyland.

Hello fellow Dis'ers! We recently got back from our Dec. trip to DLR and we have 5 preferred seating vouchers that we didn't use. I tried to give them away on the giveaway thread but I got frustrated after no replies from 5 different people (and some who did reply but didn't need or were no longer going). Soooo... anyone want them? I'm hoping that they could go to a family of 5 who is traveling in January, as they expire at the end on 1/31/13. I'm happy to throw them in an envelope and send them your way.
