Just a quick Happy Thanksgiving for all of our future friends to be!

Can't wait to get this board flying along as we get closer to the cruise.

Have a blessed day with family and friends.

Just returned from Thanksgiving at WDW 79 most every day and 28 back here, only 50 degrees difference

Lots of people and high school marching bands but lines not nearly as bad as I thought they would be. The longest was Soar'n which said 115 minutes and ended up being 80, Walked straight into most saying 20 minutes and only 5 minutes for Rockin Roller Coaster.

Christmas decorations were great and and much warmer than our usual end of December visit. Hope this holds us over until we are in DL/CA next March

Helloooooooooooooo?!



It's awfully quiet around here!

We are headed to WDW in one week for our first ever holiday visit! So excited I can't stand it ... and still have to get through another week of work, which I also can't stand.

Hope everyone is doing well!!

Personally I have been busy with course study that I have to pass before the end of the year to complete IRS requirements for my job!!!

Weather has been very warm here in TX for December and we are in another drought!

I know you will enjoy WDW for the holidays. We usually go the first 10 days of December (this was our off year, we will go in 2013) and enjoy the decorations and festivities. Have a great time. If you have not already made plans to see CP in Epcot, don't miss it. It is fantastic!

We are also getting ready for our cruise on Feb 1 aboard the Magic in Galveston. Just a 4 night, but at least it will be a quick getaway.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Way too quite, starting to think no one else is coming. WDW during the Holidays is FANTASTIC We were there for Thanksgiving this year and just after Christmas 2010, busiest times of the year and crowds not nearly as bad as we had expected.

We did the soft opening of Fantasyland and checked out the decorations at some of the resorts, really nice.

If you are going to watch the fireworks at MK we found the middle of the street in Liberty Sq between the bell and the lake you can see very well and no crowd. Watched the parade, just up the street from there, watched the fireworks and then after made our way up to the castle as the rest of the crowd from Mainstreet was leaving the park, waited a few minutes and watched the late laser show on the castle - again very little crowd.

Have a great time.

Good luck with the exams ... no fun this time of year. We have also had warm weather here in mid-Missouri although it's supposed to get cold next week. Thanks for the tip about CP - we haven't booked it but were planning to hover at the fringes.

Thanks for all the great information - we're hoping to use our new camera to film fireworks at MVMCP as a test for what it can do on this cruise next year.

We are thinking about booking this cruise - it would me me, DH and DD (15). We were booked on the EBPC cruise that left today but had to cancel due to a medical issue. We really want to do the PC, but more important we want to do it with Disney. I'm hoping they offer some deals for this sailing, the cost is a little higher than the Dec cruise.

Well sure hope something works out so you can join us. With all your planning and work on the Dec Cruise, your FE coordination and meet set ups you have a head start for Sept. Also hoping your hip is better.

Sorry you missed out on the current PC cruise, but hope you are able to join us. I had been reading y'alls thread for the Dec PC to see how many were going and what the plans were. There is a couple from Houston that left on the cruise who is hoping to book the February cruise we will be on while on board. Let youalleverybody know when you book and she can add you to the roll call. I am in charge of the FE, postcard/recipe exchange and those wanting to go to the wine tasting. If you join us and know of other things we might be interested in, please let us know.

We are going on a short trip the 1st of February on the Magic from Galveston to Cozumel. Then we will be hot and heavy with the rest of our planning for the PC trip. February is when I will be able to make my reservations for the Grand Californian at Disneyland which is where we hope to stay before the cruise.
