I thought I had quoted Jordan's post, but I guess not. I vote you keep your schedule the way it is and just use the FP+ at DHS. It is not worth $100 to get FP to 4 attractions, in my opinion, especially in MK. What did you decide to do?

Quick note for anyone planning in eating lunch at BOG: I did yesterday, and the food was fantastic, but be warned they close off the line around 2:30-2:45 to enter. It took about 20 minutes after getting in line to even order, then eating time, and they need you out to set up for dinner. So don't wait too long to get in line for it!
Yay for eating lunch at BOG!!! You are like an explorer we sent out to investigate before the rest of us go.

We plan to do epcot and HS on Saturday. phew! I feel better now. Crazy huh!??
There is nothing I don't love about this post. Well, except for the bad Punta Cana experience. Have a blast in Disney!!

zOMG 10 days over here. I can NOT keep up with this thread!

Trying to decide whether or not to do online check in. And my new shoes I got a month ago are not working out. Do you think it's possible to break in a pair of shoes in a week?

Just read a post on wdwmagic about FLE opening and it looks like the enchanted forest won't be open on my MK day (12/5). Grrr. Hoping its open the night before so we can at least ride the Little Mermaid. Oh well I still get to have breakfast in the castle that morning and we'll hit any MK things we missed the night before and head to HS. And if we get HS done on 12/5 we'll hop from AK to MK on 12/6.

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

Where is the map for MVMCP located? I need to print that!

Hello December DISers! We have finally decided to book our first Christmas trip to WDW! We will be staying at POP, arriving late night on Dec 19 until Dec 26. Can't wait!

Thanks for putting such a great thread together. I'm sure there's a lot to read and learn to preapare ourselves for the busiest time of the year at WDW.

morning everyone

this is me... to the 1000th power!

Just printed my boarding pass!

Have 2 1/2 hours of work left!

DBF just booked us in Austin for tonight at the Omni with a Priceline deal of $65! (We won't go into the fact that he just now decided we're going to Austin tonight - could be worse, right? He could've decided that later today like 4pm...)

I'm about to make our reservation for the shuttle from MCO to the Hilton (for anyone interested - each person, roundtrip is $34 - but you buy roundtrip in advance. If you buy one way tickets then it's $21 each way = $42 roundtrip per person)

Still need to pack, drop our Golden off at doggie daycare, eye appt for me, mani/pedi, DBF's mom's birthday dinner and um, get to Austin... I figure if we make good time we can be in Austin by 10pm... plenty of time before our 5am wake up call...

yay for Disney tomorrow!

Welcome!! There is a lot to read and learn, but dont let the debbie downers scare you ok? There are a LOT of people on here (not this thread) but the DIS in general with negative opinions about Christmas time, but there are just as many with positive. I choose to pay attention to the positive, and what I have learned is for the sake of all you consider special - EARLY MORNINGS! So our plan is opening the parks every day but one (our off day) and only staying late late one (night before our off day). Good luck!
