Even with the FP+ you won't have time to see the lights before the show, but you will have plenty of time to see them after. I heard that you should give yourself a good hour or more if you like to see all the details. There will be photographers there to take your pictures and you'll want to experience the snow and see the the lights dancing to the music (I think that happens every 20 minutes or so). Santa Goofy might be there too. Good, I'm so excited to see them, my kids will freak out.
Me too! I am a total Christmas freak! Can not wait to see all the lights! Oh and my girls too! Lol

We usually spend 30-45 minutes just hanging out watching the Lights and enjoying the music and atmosphere. You will love it- it is so much more than just a bunch of lights. Hard to describe the WOW factor to folks who haven't experienced it yet.
While this is technically accurate, plan on 60 minutes to see Fantasmic and to get out of the theater.( nightmare!)

Also be aware that the buses only run for a little while after park closing time (official time). Last year we lingered at the lights and had to squeeze on a bus because it was the last one of the night....

This year we rented a car so we do not have to stress at the bus stop , possibly in the rain, to squeeze on a bus...

After all the issues with my log in info after doing the BOG FP+ I was very hesitant to look to see if it stuck, and I didn't see it in MDE. Today I logged into the BOG lunch link and it was still there! I printed the page and will bring it with me just in case.

I don't have FP+ set up for the day we will be in MK, (we are using a CM pass to get in that day) is there a way to set up FP+ with that? Is that why the lunch isn't showing in my MDE?

You wouldn't believe some of the things people carry on. Yours sounds like it will be no problem. The worst that would happen is they make you gate check it and you pick it up when you arrive.

Figmentchick - can you put a link to the park days list in the first or second post so we can find it easily?

Thanks.

Yup, that should be fine. Just remember to have your small bottles of liquids in your quart ziploc out for the TSA xray. That's where most inexperienced travelers get flustered. Do the boarding pass/wallet/phone/sunglasses/watch pat down after security to make sure you didn't leave anything behind! We go through that mantra several times a day at DW as well...

I told him we'll celebrate at home, but, no, he's not getting the huge party all his new friends are getting. Kids.....

As for Disney planning: I am going to finish packing today and make my LGMH. And I have to work on the budget and September financials, too, but I can do that while we watch Disney movies (and Iron Man 3, but that still counts cause Disney owns Marvel, right?).
My kids get a little bummed that they don't get the big Communion and Confirmation parties that their cousins do, I can't imagine what they are going to say when they see their first Bar Mitzvah. They are going to be soooo jealous. My kids believe in God, but not in any particular religion and my husband calls himself a heathen or a Jedi depending on his mood. I'm more of a cultural Catholic, I don't practice it, but with a big Irish family I'm still at many Masses each year and I still have a very strong faith, just not into the politics of religion.

Wouldn't it, if I see you guys I will probably be screaming and waving, I'm definitely on the loud side. My poor in-laws and husband will be totally confused when I start introducing them to my imaginary friends. Luckily my kids are used to my craziness.

I sent her a pm with this link http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=829 to help make it easier.

Everyone else can send me their park schedule if they want to be added to that post. I still think it is funny that CaraMiaBelle and I will be at the same parks for 5 of the 6 days that we overlap. We are even going to be at the same restaurant near the same time on one night. I feel like I'm stalking her.

Sounds like we definitely belong together. My hubby considers himself a Unitarian; everyone's entitled to their own opinion, just don't harp to him about it. And we're more of an eclectic family. I was raised in a Jewish-Catholic home, so I got a little bit of everything. In our house, we have a lot of the Jewish culture (and food, not kosher, though....I LOVE bacon) and values. But we also include a lot of "heathen" celebrations in our house around the moon cycles and seasonal festivals.

I so intended to pack today for Disney....didn't happen. lol But, I still have plenty of the day left.....
