    I could be wrong, but that's what I've been reading- that they stopped that , and the Tinks Treasures.

    We finally did this last year & it was great ---- actually not as crowded as I expected & we stayed the full week prior to Christmas day --- as long as you are mostly doing FastPass attractions & have enough days there and only need about 8-10 hours a day in the park it was great.

    We'd like to hit all the Holidays at WDW :)

    Carrot cake cookie! Like a giant whoopie pie filled with cream cheese icing. Easily big enough to share. I think they're only available at DHS.

    Tom Sawyer Island is definitely going to the top of my list. Been reading a lot about it and can't believe I have never been there.

    Great thread! It's interesting that some things my family considers must dos other folks have never done! (Like the Tiki Room, Carousel of Progress, People Mover) Upcoming trip in Nov. (Thanksgiving week) was going to be a family trip (me, hubby, and grown kids), but DH can't get the time off, so I may turn it into a solo trip.

    New things planned:
    Candlelight Processional
    Go to look at Christmas decorations at the resorts
    Osborne Family Lights
    The Animation Academy
    Segway tour at Epcot
    Spirit of Aloha
    Finding Nemo
    Dessert Party to watch Wishes

    If I have time:
    jungle cruise at night
    Toy Story Mania
    get cinnamon roll at Main St Bakery
    Downtown Disney
    Rope Drop (I always think it's a great idea, but never happens)


    New things we did on last year's trip:
    stay at deluxe resort
    Magical Express
    Dining Plan
    ate at Whispering Canyon
    ate at Coral Reef
    Watched the Electric Water Pageant
    Pin trading :yay:
    ate dole whip (was somewhat disappointed in it)
    Expedition Everest
    Talktime with Crush
    oh, and I painted my nails - Minnie Mouse - so was popular with any little girl who was waiting in a line near us. :rotfl:

    I heard about this for the first time while reading through a recent trip report. The one I saw had the waffle smothered in Nutella with bananas, strawberries and blueberries on top. It looked delicious, but I couldn't say if there are other flavors.

    It's on my list and I plan to share it with my SO because it looked ginormous.

    The following is on my to do list for my next trip:
    Watch an entire parade
    Get a nice family picture in front of the castle
    Visit Animal Kingdom Lodge
    Afternoon Tea at the Grand Floridian
    Bring my daughter to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
    And last but not least the Nutella Waffle!!!
    Every trip I have a list of things I want to do and we just can't get everything done in a week. Guess it gives me a good excuse to go back!

    I'm adding to my to-do list daily, but so far it's:

    Dole Whip - In all of my years going to Disney I haven't tried one. That will end!
    Nutella Waffle - Self explanatory.
    Soarin' - Haven't gotten to spend much time at Epcot.
    Test Track - Always been closed when I've been.
    Character dining breakfast at GF - Mary Poppins!
    Jungle Cruise - Never bothered with it, but now I really want to ride!

    Maybe Expidition Everest.... I hate being dizzy from all the head jarring on some coasters.

    You should definitely do EE! Our DD was 10 during our last trip and was finally tall enough to ride all of the coasters... she was apprehensive to say the least. She did not like Space Mountain, Rock'n Roller-coaster or Thunder Mountain. We finally convinced her to ride EE and when she got off she was just giggling away and begging to ride again! So after another 5 rides that afternoon needless to say it is her favourite. I hope you give it a chance, going backwards and forwards is alot of fun, plus the view from the top is really remarkable!

    We will try and add another of the tours to our list. Not sure which one.

    We have already taken the "Keys to the Kingdom Tour" and Also the 8 hour tour where you go behind the scenes at MK, Epcot, and HS. This tour included eating at the Whispering Canyon.
