Well we braved the veteran's day weekend and I have to say with proper planning it was no big deal. Sure it was super crowded but to be honest it didn't bother us a bit and eventhough it was sold out I didn't see fastpasses being used up for the rides till very late at night. A couple of points of interest to some. We had lunch at Cafe Orleans and you pretty much HAVE to have a PS before you go. I didn't realize you needed this but I was able to make one on Friday for lunch on Sunday and it was great!! I LOVE the monte cristo and it was perfect. I have pictures of it, the kids monte cristo and the seafood crepe as well as the two desert options (beignets and chocolate crepe) if anyone is interested. We got chocolate coins with our check and for right now for every 30 bucks you spend you get a nightmare before christmas coin. We got 3!! Also they DO have photopass in both parks and although we had a few glitches we got some pics and they were there yesterday and I have already ordered mine. I was familiar with it from DW but it IS up and working so if anyone has any questions about that feel free to ask and I will post my pics when I get them if anyone is interested. Can't wait for our next trip next month. We are taking my daughter for her 7th birthday and doing happiest birthdays and the holiday tour!!
