There have been no announcements yet about characters. Here is the list from 2012: https://sites.google.com/site/wdwcha...ents/mvmcp2012

MK is just beautiful with the Christmas decorations and snow on Main St. I definitely give the edge to MNSSHP, but the Christmas party is good in its own right. My favorite things are the snow and the parade - especially the toy soldiers.

Here is the castle lit up, photographed through the snow:

I have to laugh because coming from Massachusetts I'm not getting excited to see the snow on Main st. BUT I will be excited if I don't see snow until after I'm home safe and sound getting ready for Christmas. We had a winter a couple years ago with maybe 1 snow storm. LOVED that winter. Not sure why I don't move.
I must say that the Main St. snow will be fun since no shoveling will be involved.

I'm pretty sure that is not true about the toy soldiers, unless it is new this year. In the past there has been not traditional meet and greet like that, if that is what the CM was saying.

Here are many toy soldiers decorating the Town Square garden area, near the flagpole that you could certainly take pictures with though.

Yes I can!!!!
Be online when JetBlue announced they are flying out of Worcester and get 2 round trip tickets out of Worcester for total cost of $230.

We had been looking at Manchester, Boston, and Providence. DH wanted Jetblue. So the day Fox25Boston said "The governor will be holding a press conference at 9am to announce JetBlue flying out of Worcester" my friend got on line to look to see if they were listing November flights. We were on speaker phone and booked before the gov actually showed up.
Totally totally lucked out because by noon the flights were much more expensive. But I've been watching for February and March and depending on when you travel you can still get some reasonable flights. Not that lucked out price but still reasonable and the location really helps.

Previous Airline didn't do well in Worcester. I hope JetBlue does better and is there a long time. Because I plan to make regular visits to Disney.

Disney Where Dreams come true!!!
So far the plans for this vacation have all been falling into place.
We are pretty excited.

We are flying SW also. But for free . My DH travels so much for work he will have earned enough points. Plus by then he will have companions fly free. So one free ticket on points and one with companion pass.

The only day we can attend is Nov. 22nd, the Friday before Thanksgiving. Will that evening sell out? This is a makeup trip from one we had to cancel at Christmas, so we really want to see the parade. Will it be so packed that we can't enjoy it?
TIA

This post is from 2011 but I think it still gives a pretty good idea of what to expect:
