We did the Tour last year, and it was our first trip to DLR during the Christmas season. I thought it was totally worth the money. Going again this year, and can't wait I am excited that it includes DCA this time. I booked the first Tour on December 2. We did the nighttime Tour last year, so I wanted to try the day Tour this time. Did I say I was so excited!!!!

They didn't open until 9 am on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Holiday hours. Of course, the recording doesn't tell you that--I only knew because I called a couple of days ahead to get all my questions answered. Otherwise I'm sure I would have been freaking out!

We booked the tour for December 22 and Fantasmic! Premium Viewing for December 23. We've never done either one and I can't wait!

Yes, I found that out the hard way on Thanksgiving when I tried to call to make Fantasmic dessert reservations! I was freaking out because it just kept looping back on the same recording

But YEA! Just got our reservations today for the Holidaytime Tour on Christmas Day!!! Hey Mickey&JoshNut I saw you were trying for reservations on Christmas day too - did you get your reservations? If so, which tour did you get? Maybe we'll see you there!

Glad you got your tour too! We are doing the 3:15 tour (doing BB at 11:30), so I guess we won't be on the same tour together. But enjoy!!

Odd question, but does anyone happen to know if the tour swings by Soarin' at all? I was hoping to pop over for a few seconds and grab some FPs for later in the day. LOL

We just stayed on the main street and Carsland, but maybe if you make a special request you could run over there super fast, some of the people in our group did some pin trading while we waited and our guide answered questions.

Thanks! I mean it's not that important, I don't want to be a bother. I'll just play it by ear and see if the opportunity comes up.

Ok so I'm determined to make this tour happen on Dec 31! One quick question: I know when buying items in the parks with my AP, any credit cards used must match the name on the AP. This isn't normally a problem for me, as though I don't have a credit card, I just pay with cash. However does anyone know if this rule is true for booking a tour? So if my mum pays with her credit card can I use my AP for the discount even though the names are different? TIA!

We just had a friend of ours book a tour for us as she has an AP and we do not. We are all going on the tour...she just has to be present since she is the AP holder who bought the tickets. I am sure it is fine in reverse so long as she is present.

I can't remember, but I think they ask for the AP and I think the name has to match the credit card for the discount. I know it does for merchandise.

I've booked two tours using an AP discount and they've never asked me for any proof. I have always assumed they just look it up by name to confirm but who knows...

Thanks for the replies! I will attempt the AP/credit card purchase, but if that doesn't work we also have CAA so we should be able to get the discount somehow!
