Hello all! We just returned from Christmas week with the mouse. I do not have time for a long , drawn out trip report but thought I would leave a few of our experiences here for you. Let me start off by saying I was terrified of the crowd stories but was pleasantly surprised. I am one that wants to do everything...hence the title. We visited the parks on the 24th thru the 29th and had weather ranging from warm to OMG THIS IS NOT FLORIDA WEATHER! We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo at Westgate Lakes Resort. Have friends that own there and got us a deal that we just could not pass up. It was nice. We had an updated room overlooking the lake. Monday 12/24: Started the morning at AK. Made "Rope Drop". We rode Safari, Dinosaur, EE, visited with Russell and Dug, and saw Bug's Life. Left at 10:45. Did not use a single fast pass. From there we went to EPCOT. We got FP's for Soarin, rode Nemo, saw Turtle Talk, and then made our way back to Germany for CP reservations. Biergarten: YUMMY! We ate....well....everything... After lunch...or the glutinous feast as I call it...we wandered the countries until it was time for the CP. I am soooo glad that we did the package because people had started lining up 3 hours before start. We saw Gary Sinise. It was just awesome. Brought most of us to tears. When the Candelight Processional was over we jumped on the boat back to Future World, rode Soarin, Spaceship Earth, and Mission Space. Oh...we also got a snack at Sunshine Seasons after Soarin. The CP package also includes priority seating for Illuminations as well. That was stunning. They add a little extra for Christmas. Overall, the crowds were not bad. AK was empty while we were there, however there were many people coming in as we left. Epcot was busy, but no different than a June day. It was a wonderful Christmas Eve.
