    I booked our 2 bedroom villa for 4 nights. I didn't have more points to make it a longer trip but our kids want to go for Christmas decorations. Thinking of booking a harbor hotel for a few nights to extend the trip longer, I don't want to fill rushed with 8 kids. I want to enjoy the holiday decorations and nighttime entertainment.

    When do they film the parade and do the candlelight stuff, hoping I missed that weekend in my planning.

    The parade they film in the middle of November I believe, but the CP is usually in early December. You also need to watch out for the cast party which makes disneyland close early, at 5 or 6pm also early in December.

    Maybe a tip for you, maybe not. But we have done an on property followed by an off property in the past. Our family MUCH prefers to stay off property first, then finish on property. So if you can add to your trip before, finishing at your GCVilla may be more fun.

    My family hates to move mid trip, big hassle and takes away from the park time.
