We are back from our first DVC trip to BLT (I promise I will write a trip report), and now we've become some of those "crazy DVC people" who go more than once a year.

You crazy DVC person! LOL Can't wait to hear about BLT and congrats on booking another trip - isn't it great?


I have not gone down in Dec so I can't help too much.

Thanks, Val!


Yeah, we are going to eat before the party. I just made a reservation for T-Rex for 2:00 PM that day.

We went Christmas week last year and fell in love with Disney during the holidays! We hit the parks at rope drop and toured until lunch or until the crowds became unbearable. We actually were lucky because early mornings were slow and we able to hit all the big rides with very little waits or fastpasses. The longest we waited was 20 mins!

The holiday decorations are beautiful, we enjoyed touring alot of the resorts and all four parks. Amazing lights and christmas trees! Osborne lights are a MUST! WOW!

Weather wise was wild! We had low 30's in the mornings, 70's around lunch and then 30's again in the evening. We brought both winter and summer clothes and wore them all.

We loved Christmas at Disney so much we are headed back again this year Dec 26-Jan 2!

we went early december so did not deal with crowds...but.... We went because I wanted to see the christmas decorations!!

You must seee Osbourne family lights. It was so amazing that I almost cancelled Boma ressies for later that week because I was considering going again that week. The castle lighting is nice as was MVMCP (dont know if you will do that). We stayed at the GF because i wanted to see the gingerbread house and we also checked out beach club and yacht club which had really nice decorations.

We definitely had slightly cooler weather and rainy days so bring layers!!! have a great time!
