Okay, I have official gotten the DL bug. We had our first trip in March and I am hooked. Yes WDW will be my first love, but I think I will have to try Californian a few more times. My question: Is New Years as crowded at DL as it is at WDW. I am trying to decide between the week before the week of Xmas (Dec 16 - 22, 2002) or maybe the week after Xmas (Dec 29 - Jan 3, 2002). I prefer the New years time because it will be mine and DH's 10th anniversary, but really do not like that shoulder to shoulder feel you can get at the holidays.
