    Mommy2PrincessAbby -

    Thank you so much for posting the info from the Blog!




    pixeyyy -

    Here is a post from last year that had all the pricing info, including discounts - http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=42998026&postcount=1.

    This year's tour will be slightly more money, I would guess, just because prices have gone up for everything at DLR in 2012!:faint:

    There is other tour information (including links to photos and reviews) under the "Holiday Tour" category in Post #3 on Page 1 of this thread.

    I know it was brought up before, but I just can't find it!....

    Do you have an estimate of the cost of the candlelight processional package? I just talked to mom and she wants to go if possible. I'm a budgeter, so I want to make sure I have enough money earmarked to take her.

    Thanks!

    I think these hasn't been announced. Someone posted a rumor what restaurants would be used but nothing official has been announced. The dining email told me early November, and other people have heard similar things.

    I'm intrigued that the Holiday Tour says you'll have a look the new DCA Holiday magic!

    I am officially 2 months out today! 3 years of planning, and 1 year of being excited and frustrated with ticket changes and such....we are so close! What a rollercoaster this has been to organize! I so wan't to know what the CP plans are! I want to be making our PS dining arrangements, and such but feel like I should wait and see. My DD and I have considered taking DGD2 to breakfast with Minnie as a "girls morning", while ALL the boys sleep. I have considered a morning at "build a bear" but is it worth wasting valuable morning hours? We are staying at PP, and I know a more quiet event would be best for her. I can't wait to see the popcorn buckets and coffee mugs. I still cannot wrap my head around how to make sure we get on RSR in Carsland. All the sudden my head is swirling with all the things I still need to plan!!!

    I purchased my Holiday Tour tickets a couple of days ago and was told that the price is $68. I received a Disney Visa discount of 20%, making the tickets $54.40. I believe AP holders get the same discount.
    I'm excited to hear that DCA is being included because I hope the holiday version of Carsland will be up for us at the very start of the season.

    I'm loving this week's theme. I don't think I have a single picture of Toon Town in my collection so it's nice to see all of yours! :goodvibes

    I'm getting really excited. I just found out I'll be going to Disneyland for the first time ever the week between Christmas and New Years, and these pictures are really getting me pumped up.

    I think I read it earlier in the thread or another thread here; sorry I don't have time to look. It was someone having a discussion with dining representative, who did not know but thought some restaurants would be listed. I remember the list not including BB but CCT and FM.

    Al Lutz says the reindeer round-up is canceled and this is the last year before they start Christmas parties, WDW style. Plus he said they are going to start a peak ticket prices, like the increased meal prices during the holidays. Oh, and he said they are going to enforce FP times starting around Thanksgiving!

    As if my whole touring plan wasn't already in shambles with DCA opening so darned early my whole trip, now it looks like I have to try and use my FPs at the appointed time (thanks Al Lutz for reporting)... doesn't sound like it will be a totally enforced by the trip, but I know DH, and if we are "reminded" once, he will want to make sure we are there on time for the rest. This trip is shaping up to be very interesting.

    The new Mice Age... there is another thread with the link... now Al Lutz doesn't work for Disney, so his stuff is based on rumor... but he is more often right than wrong. He states that they will start educating people about the return time at Thanksgiving and by Christmas will be enforcing the return time...

    This is our first trip and I'm getting pretty bummed out about all the changes that are being speculated about :( It feels like we picked the worst possible time to discover Disneyland (huge ticket increases, record setting crowds, no more reindeer roundup, the CP mess, possibility of FP return times being enforced, etc...) I'm sure we'll still have a great time, but I wonder if we'll be inclined to make this a regular vacation :confused3

    kaci -

    You'll still have a great time. The holiday season at DLR is going to be amazing no matter what happens, but it does seem like there is a lot of stuff happening at once.

    I think that DLR is getting a little too big for its britches in thinking that because Cars Land and Buena Vista Street were added in, suddenly it's a resort on par with WDW, and that Disney now has to do all of these major things to 'act' like WDW. I think they are trying to do too much all at once.

    Disney is very smart - they will tell us about all the things that are new (such as the Cars Land decorations this year), but not tell us about the things that are being taken away. So this way we think we are getting an even bigger and better holiday season, when it's actually being scaled down.

    I had a feeling that with the addition of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street decorations, and now the ice rink in Downtown Disney, other things would be taken away. I just wasn't sure what would be taken away. Now we know with almost 100% certainty that the reindeer will be gone this year. But that won't be enough. Something else will have to be removed, too - but Disney will assume that no one will notice.

    Frankly - and this is relevant because we are in the middle of Toontown Theme Week in this thread - I have a sneaking suspicion that the 3 Christmas trees that were removed from Toontown and replaced with ugly 'cartoonish' trees in 2011 were cleaned up, freshened up and 'redistributed' somewhere else in DLR...it's possible those old Toontown Christmas trees will now be part of Cars Land or Buena Vista Street (since all the shops and restaurants will be decorated, too), if they weren't already used in other locations last year.:idea:
