I got a 30% PIN for Sept. so we booked Labor Day week instead of week after Christmas. My kids will miss more school but it will be very low crowds. My plan B will still be week after Christmas but off site Always gotta have a plan B with my family.

We are booked for Dec 15-22 2012 at POFQ! I LOVE Disney in December and we love POFQ.

I wasn't going to re-book this early (we were there this past December), but I FINALLY managed to get myself a PIN for the first time, good for our December dates, and I wasn't about to let that slip away. Still hoping for free dining though, which would work out even better.

Or trip is official now. Airfare has been purchased. So excited to see the holiday decorations and to experience the holiday magic but a little nervous about the crowds. I know it is going to be VERY crwded. Prepared to deal w/ that. more nervous about parks closing and not being able to get in. I really hope this isn't a disaster, lol.

We are going!

We will be there from Dec 9th to 16th. I'm still weighing various options for accommodations so I'm not booked yet, but should book this month for sure!

This is our first Disney trip at Christmastime, and my first Disney trip with a grandbaby!! I can't wait!!

I thought it was way too early to book, but apparently not! Where did you find the PIN? I am still catching on to the abbreviations on this board (first timer here) but this sounds like a promotion code?

Definitely not too early! I booked last month.

PINs are promotion codes that are person-specific. You get them either by snail mail or email, and they cannot be shared or transferred. No one knows exactly how they are given out, although there are some theories. I have NEVER gotten one before, and I've tried everything from ordering maps, saving vacation quotes, requesting dvds, etc.

Anyway, as soon as we got back from our WDW trip this past December, I immediately started pricing another one for 12/12, just to see what it would cost. I saved the quote and didn't think much of it. A week later they emailed me a pin for 35% off hotel, for the exact dates of my saved quote. I took that as a sign to go ahead and book!

You can't combine discounts, though, so if free dining is announced, I'll have my agent drop the PIN discount and add free dining instead.

We changed our dates...

We were originally booked Dec 20-27 at BW, but last month I added 2 more days to the beginning of the trip...now Dec 18-27. We are hoping to catch the last MVMCP ...now, they just need to announce those dates!!

We will be staying at the Poly Dec 21 - 28th. We are all so excited to be in Disney on Christmas Day! We have been there twice while it has been decorated, just never Christmas Week.

I am also a little neverous about the crowds but since this is our
12th trip, we are not in a rush to see everything.

Now we just need to decide which park to go to on the 25th and where we want to eat Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Any suggestions would
be appreciated
