December 2012...Christmastime in WDW

There isn't a thread already for December 2012?!? If not, I think it's time to start one. Is still a long way out but, planning is half the fun! Who's going? Thoughts? Ideas?
I am taking my daughter as an early Christmas present! We're planning on 12/3-8...possibly adding on a day on either end, if we can find a great deal! But, if not...5 days at the Grand Floridian...will make us both very, very happy!

I'll join in. I've had my Dec 2012 trip planned for about a year now ... link to my PTR below. Originally we'd planned it as a graduation/moving trip for next year in between leaving our current house behind and moving into the one we own, but then I finished my degree early so now its just a b-days in WDW trip. We'll be there from Dec 1-15.
Cruise is booked (and re-booked with an on-board re-booking OBC!), DVC points for the second week have been traded/reservation made for the other member and he is ready to wake up at 4a to make my BWV reservation, point rental for the pre-cruise week has been set up ... really excited about seeing it for the first time in over 20 years all lit up!

I'll join in too! DS and myself will be going down just the 2 of us from Dec 15, 2012 through Dec 19, 2012 then we'll be joined by DH and DMIL from Dec 19th thru Dec 22nd. DMIL has never seen Disney at Christmas, in fact she hasn't been to Disney since 1972!!!

We are booked at the Port Orleans French Quarter, I think DMIL will love that resort and it's a family favorite

I've been searching for a thread for this and hadnt found one...until now.

We have been planning our trip for about 3 years now. We are booked at BW in a Deluxe CL room. Going Dec 20-27, 2012. DxDP. SOOOOO looking forward to this trip. This will be the first trip for my two youngest kiddos.

I dont have a PTR yet, but will start one in the next few months.

I do have a PTR for a trip we have booked for Oct (MNSSHP, F&W) if anyone would like to read that...theres not much to it yet, but its hard to write about the trip this far out.

Looking forward to planning with everyone over the course of the next year.

We have been planning for a long time too! I was so happy when that 499 day booking window opened! We are staying at BW too! Our 1st time to visit WDW at Christmas!

Congrats on your graduation...you should just celebrate it ALL! Plenty of time with 15days of Disney! There is just nothing better than Christmas in Disney!

365 days for us, one year to the day. But my ticker says 11 months 29 days? Apparently its overly optimistic!

December 2012

We're planning our first holiday trip for 2012! I want to go in December, but on one of the days where it's not crazy busy, so around the middle of the month. I've got several Disney trips between now and then, but I can't wait for this one!
