Hey you never get what you think you want. I didn't want 9 years between mine, but I am at peace now, and really happy about it. You'll be glad in a few years they are so close in age! I'm sure you hear this all the time, but time flies! How did I get so old?

I spent the weekend setting these up. It was fun but frustrating at the same time if you are not a planner because you really need to know where you're going to be on what day.

Oh, well, 53 more days to go.

I'll be in Disney Dec 5 - 9 @ YC.
I'm doing some last minute planning and updating. Also looking to see if there is any news I should be aware of. Love this forum!

It's early but I'm itching about the weather. I make my girls' clothes and I wonder how warm they should be Obsessing over here.

Going 12/14 to 12/21. So excited, just added La Nouba to the itinerary. Have wanted to see this for some time but I thought it was expensive and if I found a deal, it was never for the date I was in WDW. Finally, they have a deal on category 2 seats from 10/29 to 12/20 on Travelzoo. Still debating if I should add a day at Universal Studios. I want to experience the Transformers ride and get a pic. But right now, the itinerary is very heavy. I'm attending the Christmas party and want to attend the Candlelight Processional at least two days.

Just decided to go

We decided just today to go to Disney with the kids, DD-9 and DS-6!!
December 3-9.
Haven't even started planning where to eat or where to go on what days..
Staying at ASMu
What's the verdict..will it be crowded? Didn't know if there was free dining which I know brings the crowds...pop Warner is at the end of our trip so not worried about that...
Ahhhh! So much planning..so little time...

Free dining wasn't offered to the general public during the beginning of December, just room discounts.

This time has always been a good time to go, the crowd levels will be fine. Pop warner does not add too much to the crowd levels since they are playing football. You will see more at the hotels stay at an all star. Your biggest issue will be getting any good dinner ressies at this point. As long as your flexable with that, you will have a great trip. Get your dining and Fb+ done soon.

Have a great trip...

Going practically same dates and was just looking at "making some dining changes" There are plenty of good restaurants still available for a variety of times. Mostly 5pm ish and then after 7 ish but plenty to choose from. Gonna be a great week !

I know it's frustrating bit that's all u can do. Are u subscribed to the December canceling ADR thread? That's a good source. Especially if you pick the instant email notifications.
What days will you be there for. And how many are you😃

Are you using the Disney website resource area for dining ? Like I said I was on last nite for the 4th-5th and 6th looking to make some changes and each day had a lot open . Pop in your date and an appx time and everything available will show up.

I'm wondering if the website is down. I did see others complaining about it. Also I did use disneys site and even tried calling. With nothing avail. I'll keep trying and hope the server is down! I'm mostly worried I won't get any character meals!

help

We're leaving for POR December 8th for 5 nights. I see others going around the same time talking about making FP+ reservations. I can't seem to be able to make any. Is FP+ only available for certain reservations or am I doing something wrong. Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks,
Jane
