My best birthday present ever was in my sophomore year of college, I am a HUGE Christmas fan and it was my first year not living at home and I was flat broke and depressed. The morning of my birthday my friends showed up with a Christmas tree and decorations and we decorated my house all morning. 20 years later and it still causes me to tear up.
That was really nice of your friends to do that for you. I agree that getting one big birthday/Christmas present is a nice benefit.

Just joined this site but have been planning our Dec 14 thru Dec 21 trip since February. I am so excited I can't stand it. It's the first time my kids DD6,DD4 and DS2 and my DH will ever have this experience. No pressure. We are staying at BLT. The only thingies am nervous but excited about is the Magicband/Fastpass+ thing. I hope to try it. The not lowing is a killer to my planning. Oh we'll I am going to WDW.

Keep reading so you can plan accordingly. Its the busiest time of the year and it will be crowded but with a plan it is doable

Thanks, I've been doing a lot of reading throughout the Dis and also have read The unofficial guide several times!
Going on the trip is DH, myself and our two DD's (7 and 8). This will be their first trip ever, can't wait!!

WOW Exciting times for sure. I have 2 DD's who started out going at 1&2 yrs old and I know how fun it is to watch them marvel in the wonders of all things Disney ! They are 21 & 22 now and still can't wait for the next trip down!

One thing I always tell people who ask me for WDW advice is to remember it IS going to be crowded (Christmas especially) so you will probably not see evrything so without a doubt just enjoy what you see. Make a list of must do's with some research (let the girls pick some too) and plan accordingly.
One must do is to leave some time for whatever comes up.
Have a great time. Keep asking questions here if you need more advice

Okay so just made a reservation at H&V for Dec 12th. Hoping that Sofia will be there if she is not will cancel this and go to 50's Prime Time. I did H&V a couple of years ago when my girls were 1 and 3 and they liked the characters but this time decided that unless there was a change in the line up this meal was a skip. So I am really hoping that Sofia makes her way there by Dec!!
