    Welcome!!
    I have not been there at that time but I certainly want to go at that time.I think any time you go is a good time.
    As for booking the further out I book the better.

    It can be warm during that time, but nothing like June is. When we went in December 07 it got light jacket cool 1 or 2 nights, but that was it.

    I think you will be able to enjoy yourself during that season.

    i'm going that week too (nov. 28th-dec. 6th). i've heard it is a good time b/c all of the decorations are up and the christmas crowds haven't arrived just yet.

    welcome to the dis! :disrocks:

    If you are looking to avoid the heat, then you should travel b/w late October and April. Outside of that, it can be really hot.

    You will get to see the holiday decorations which should be a plus for you.

    As long as swimming is not high up on the priority list you'll be fine.

    My kids personally would rather be at the pool than the parks :sad2:....so we go in August. Crazy hot. It's brutal. I think I lose 5 lbs. in water weight from sweating. I don't recommend it to anyone, but all of the attractions are air conditioned, so it's bearable i guess.

    We just went at the time you're asking about, and it was great! Crowd levels were not too bad, but the weekends were a bit heavier. The weather was decent, with one REALLY cold day... but a light jacket or long sleeves with jeans worked fine most days, and tshirts worked for a couple days. We did get one nasty thunderstorm, that most people looked unprepared for. (Weather Channel, people! :confused3 )

    The Christmas decorations were terrific, even if they were cut back from previous years, as I had read. Did lots of resort-hopping to check out the spectacular chocolate and gingerbread creations! :thumbsup2 You might be interested in the Yuletide Fantasy backstage tour, it was lot's of fun. And we really enjoyed the Candlelight Processional too.

    We're swapping up times with you, and going this June!! But that's the only time we can take my DNephew, who otherwise might never get to go. So we'll endure the heat for him!

    I recommend making reservations just as soon as you can. And Pop was not bad in '06, so we're staying there again. We did enjoy our stay at ASMusic in Nov/Dec, the rooms there have been updated recently. But the little guy will enjoy the theming at Pop better.

    Happy planning!

    My family and I are thinking of going to WDW around the same time. I think that it's a great time to go. :thumbsup2 Like many of the previous posters have said, you should definitely make your reservations soon if you can.

    Happy planning! I think that would be a wonderful time to go. Will probably try that time of year after kids are out of the house. School gets in the way of traveling when I want to. The weather should be pleasant then.
