Gotta take myself off the December list! I changed my trip to 9/26-10/3! I went around this time last year and loved it, I want to do the Halloween party, and I just couldn't pass up free dining! SOOO excited!

I'm close to booking Dec 2-7....still debating between that and F&W in October though....haven't been to WDW either time of the year so I'm open to either..makes the decision harder

We are leaving on Christmas day and staying at the CR thru Jan. 2nd. Shhhhhhhhhh, it's a surprise. Kids don't know. Christmas present.

It is so far away but I am so excited. Worried about the crowds, but I plan on just taking it all in and enjoying the magic of it all.

have been during both times and both are great times. Beginning of Dec. has no crowds but you have the beauty of all of the Christmas decorations and happenings. October is much warmer for swimming/water parks, still no crowds. Can't go wrong with either one!

We are booked for our 4th December trip Dec 16-21 as of right now, I would love to add a few more days, if I get brave and rich enough. We have never stayed past the Sunday before Christmas and the crowd on that Saturday night last year scared me, it wouldn't have been so bad, except I had someone else's child in tow.

We love December and the Christmas Decorations, it helps me to not be quite so sad.

Crowds

Has anyone been to DW the beginning of Dec.? We are planning a trip 12/5-12/12 and I am so worried about crowds. I went 3/08 and the crowds were so bad...I can't go through that again! What about crowds at Universal? I'd appreciate any and all help.

FYI...For those planning to go over x-mas, I read that if you don't get to the park when it opens, you might not get in. It's very crowded.

Thank you in advance for your help!

I'm not sure when the Pop Warner Super Bowl Week is this year, but it made for a very crowded trip in 2008 and it coinsiided with Mousefest(which is no longer). We we went the week after, Dec 13-21 and it was very pleasant and the crowds didn't seem to come in until Dec 20 for Christmas week, but I expected that. We went Dec 3-10, 2006 and I won't go during Pop Warner again, it just isn't a time for me to go.

Besides, if you go later in December there are alot of sales, if you like to shop like I do.
