Be prepared for crowds. I've never gone over Christmas, but my aunt and uncle did in 2004 - said they never will again. Wall to wall people, waiting times in the hours for everything - did I say wall to wall people? Oh yeah. I've gone in early December - that way I get to see the Christmas decorations without the crowds being there. It was the perfect time to go!

Ditto. No crowds and all the Christmas spirit. Great way to get in the mood. Don't forget Candlelight Processional!

Now, don't go discouraging folks who want to go on Christmas! I did it last year, and with proper planning and the right attitude, it was a wonderful trip! Made all my ADRs and dinner packages, followed all the advice for getting to parks early and AVOIDING EMH at ALL costs! Take the midday break, see all the sights when the parks are overloaded...it was great.
That being said, I figure I'd try a less stressful time of year this year.

In the past 6 years I have visited WDW during Christmas week twice, the most recent was December 2004. Yes, the crowds are large, but I would still go down that week. The decorations and the excitement of the large crowds helps to increase the Christmas spirit. So if you don't like the crowds but love Christmas decorations and music then take Sandy advice go in early December (I have done multiple early Dec trips as well). Otherwise go ahead and enjoy WDW at Christmas.

I would love to be actually be at WDW on Christmas Day, but only if I was there with a special someone. I can't imagine anything more romantic than walking hand in hand down Main Street USA on Christmas morning!

I just found out that I'll be able to go 12/2/2006 until at least 12/10/2006. Hopefully some great AP rates will come out soon. Since I'm solo, I'll just try for POP again.
