I've heard they don't do the paint brushes anymore!

I could be wrong, but that's what I've been reading- that they stopped that , and the Tinks Treasures.

Christmas @ WDW - need to hit all the Holidays

We finally did this last year & it was great ---- actually not as crowded as I expected & we stayed the full week prior to Christmas day --- as long as you are mostly doing FastPass attractions & have enough days there and only need about 8-10 hours a day in the park it was great.

We'd like to hit all the Holidays at WDW

Carrot cake cookie! Like a giant whoopie pie filled with cream cheese icing. Easily big enough to share. I think they're only available at DHS.

Tom Sawyer Island is definitely going to the top of my list. Been reading a lot about it and can't believe I have never been there.

Great thread! It's interesting that some things my family considers must dos other folks have never done! (Like the Tiki Room, Carousel of Progress, People Mover) Upcoming trip in Nov. (Thanksgiving week) was going to be a family trip (me, hubby, and grown kids), but DH can't get the time off, so I may turn it into a solo trip.

New things planned:
Candlelight Processional
Go to look at Christmas decorations at the resorts
Osborne Family Lights
The Animation Academy
Segway tour at Epcot
Spirit of Aloha
Finding Nemo
Dessert Party to watch Wishes

If I have time:
jungle cruise at night
Toy Story Mania
get cinnamon roll at Main St Bakery
Downtown Disney
Rope Drop (I always think it's a great idea, but never happens)


New things we did on last year's trip:
stay at deluxe resort
Magical Express
Dining Plan
ate at Whispering Canyon
ate at Coral Reef
Watched the Electric Water Pageant
Pin trading
ate dole whip (was somewhat disappointed in it)
Expedition Everest
Talktime with Crush
oh, and I painted my nails - Minnie Mouse - so was popular with any little girl who was waiting in a line near us.

I heard about this for the first time while reading through a recent trip report. The one I saw had the waffle smothered in Nutella with bananas, strawberries and blueberries on top. It looked delicious, but I couldn't say if there are other flavors.

It's on my list and I plan to share it with my SO because it looked ginormous.
