DH and I just returned from a Dec 10-14 trip and we had a BLAST! We were pleasantly surprised with the manageable crowd levels, having never gone outside a busy summer or closer-to-Christmas time frame. We had no problems getting on anything--even Toy Story ManiaWe ate at Plaza in MK, St. Angel and Rose and Crown in EPCOT, Flametree BBQ in AK, Ohanas at the Poly, Brown Derby at DHS, and our foodcourt at ASMo. All great meals--R&C and Flametree got high marks and will definitely make our "repeat" list. As a couple, we were flagged to move in faster ques on most of the rides and it was neat having our Disney Reward dollars take us through the entire trip instead of running out half way throughBuses from the ASMo ran quickly with no wait longer than 15 minutes. I had a mix up with DH's ticket (I have an AP) that was handled quickly and efficiently by Elaine at DHS guest relations with a credit. I also had a situation handled by Disney Dining (I'm so sorry I didn't get her name) in that I was never told our night to attend the Terrace Dessert party was also a night for MVMCP and thus an extra charge for that ticket. Obviously, we were'nt interested in paying that much for desserts (even though it's an awesome experience), and she worked a way to get the reservation moved,then cancelled, so I was happy and another couple could get in to enjoy it. All this on the phone while waiting for the busTo be honest, DH and I were unsure if we'd have the same level of enjoyment with the trip without DS and DD (who were both finishing up finals in grad schools), BUT WE HAD A FABULOUS TIME. Temps so warm we needed no jacket M-T-W with only a sweatshirt on TH at night. I wore shorts the entire timeWe heard Jodi Benson read the CP at EPCOT, enjoyed all the special entertainment to be had from the British band in England to Christmas stories from around the world, to Mulch, Sweat and Shears Osbourne lights pre show at DHS, and toured the new Fantasyland at MK. I can't wait to see all the pictures.
