We were there last year, it opened on the 16th I believe and I was able to get multiple reservations closer to the trip using Touring Plans Reservation Finder and mouse dining.Just booked All star Sports 12/15-12/22!
We also splurged on deluxe dining, so I'm looking forward to trying restaurants we've never been to.
Question - Is Story Book dining super popular? I thought it would be easy to book, but there's no availability for the entire week we're there.
That is an awesome deal! I updated the resort on the roll call, but if you want me to change the dates let me know if you are arriving early or staying lan extra day at the end.I renewed our annual passes today and it opened up the discounts for December so I changed our BC res to the YC Club Level and added a day for $1900 less!
Yes it is! I was shocked there is still availability and yes we are arriving a day early, arriving on the 20th instead of the 21stThat is an awesome deal! I updated the resort on the roll call, but if you want me to change the dates let me know if you are arriving early or staying lan extra day at the end.
12/7-12/14, staying at CSR for now unless a room discount comes out then I'm open to switching to deluxe.
Kinda worried about crowds, but my kids have been begging to go again, so whatever
Ugh you guys! I just signed up for Touring Plans and began trying to plot out our days. I'm so overwhelmed! It's been so long (10 years) since I was there, and I just don't know where to begin. Given the time of year, I know crowds will slow us down, plus we want to try and stay as loose as possible with the schedule. Touring Plans seems to be making this harder than it needs to be. I need tips! Here's my general park plan:
Arrival Day: MK (arrive by 3)
12/25: no parks day
12/27: Maybe MK/AK day?
Our general idea is to hit the parks early in the morning, then break after lunch, around 2 and head back to the resort for a couple of hours. Then either hit the same park or another for dinner and the evening. What rides/shows do you guys think are must do? My kiddos are 9 and 13, and will be tall enough for everything.
Thanks! We're skipping the party, since most of the options will be going on during Christmas week anyway. We have hoppers too, and I'm hoping that will help. I'm thinking we'll just schedule our 3 fast passes per morning, and then try to play the rest of the day by ear based on moods and crowds.We will be there the same dates as you. 12/22 is a MVMCP night. I’ve never been but I heard it’s wonderful party. Some characters that you don’t normally see in the parks will be there. I have hoppers also so we can be more flexible with our plans. Did you reserve your dining? We are doing the Candlelight processional on Christmas Eve. It sounds like you have a great plan so far.
We’ve been a few times over this week with the current fast pass system, and what we do is make rope drop to do rides in the morning, break after lunch (even us big people nap sometimes over this week) and then go back to the parks late afternoon/evening for fast passes then.Thanks!

I’m thinking the week before won’t be any less busy given the fact that the final piece of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge opens on Dec 5Have not used this persona in ages. Never could get it to work so changed years ago- literally. Was skipping WDW this December because of GE but could not resist. Currently POP dec 14-20 but may go week early hoping for smaller crowds.
