    I am super excited. We stayed DLH Concierge last May when we went.

    It was dh and dd's 7 & 9 first trip, and since Grandpa left us some money, and had always wanted to take the girls, we decided to make it memorable, and once in a lifetime, so we did everything, and spoiled all of rotten, just like my dad would have, if he had been able to take them.

    We will have to be a little more on budget this year, but I have been saving, and looking for deals, so we shall see. I would really love to be at dlh again, if not concierge then, well, I guess that's okay, lol,

    We'll be there similar dates. We're staying at Carousel because of the Micechat deal. If you call them directly and say you want the Micechat rate, you may get the same deal - $89/night.

    Nice! I'll be celebrating my bday there at the same time! It's a couple of weeks early, but I wasn't interested in the mob crowds around Christmas Day.

    Let us know how the Desert Inn is - it was on our short list of possible hotels.

    We are getting pretty excited about our trip, the last few months have flown by so I can see the next 5 months are going to go by quickly too. I have booked DLH for the 9-14th Dec, threw caution to the wind and went for it even though it is really blowing the accommodation budget. Oh well we will just have to tighten our belts a bit more and it will be so worth it when we get there. Now trying to think a bit more about what we are doing for our LA & Hawaii leg of our trip until we are a bit closer and we get a better feel for how best to plan our disney days with cars land open

    I agree! I've had a ticker since the first of the year. Time has FLOWN by, so I can imagine it will continue to do so until we arrive. Then I hope time slows WAYYYYY down. :thumbsup2

    How wonderful! I dream of multiple Disney trips per year!

    Woo hoo!!:cool1:

    What a great way for your son to spend his birthday!

    Our package is booked, our kids tickets and hotel are arranged! Now i am planning character meals, and a "build a bear" trip for my gd2! I would love to sneak in a tour or fantasmic for my hubby and myself! I have purchased personalized Minnie luggage to take to my gd2 with disney toys in it and ask her if she wants to go to Disneyland! I simply am looking forward to the holidays!!

    SomeDude78 - we'll be right there in the thick of the crowd too! :rotfl:

    For all of those of us crazy enough to brave the crowds right at Christmas ( I think there's about 5 of us families/groups now) want to meet up? Or will we be too busy fighting our way through the crowd? :upsidedow
