    We'll be checking in for our trip at FW Campground on the 19th and staying until the 26th. Driving from Virginia. My husband and son have no idea that we're going--breaking the news to them on the 16th for my husband's 35th birthday. I'm so excited and nervous! My husband and son have never been to WDW and I haven't been since I was six years old!

    Does anyone know if Periwinkle is still meeting with TinkerBelle in Pixie Hollow? Our DD really is hoping she is there next week for our trip.

    At least it will be open part of our visit. DD loves the chocolate/chocolate chip muffin! It's a tradition!

    Was the background for Tink still set up for winter time? I am hoping Periwinkle was taking a break when you went through. I can't believe they only had one fairy greeting guests. How long was the wait?

    Have you noticed a decline in attendance yet? Just wondering if the holiday crowds left yet.popcorn::

    Beautiful weather today and yes it does seem still quite busy. We went to Animal Kingdom this morning to do the safari and everest there were a lot of people there I'm glad we park hoppers I would not want to stay. My boys went to Disney quest and my husband and I went to downtown Disney shopping we will be headed to Epcot for illuminations this evening. So far Our timing for the buses has been great. :goodvibes
