I don't know how accurate this website is - but here is what it shows for holiday pricing:

Dining Dining designates certain date ranges as being "Holiday" periods and increases the price of buffet dining.  Approximately $4 is added to the adult standard price, and $2 is added to the standard child price.

Restaurants included in Holiday pricing are:

1900 Park Fare
Biergarten
Boma
Cape May cafe
Chef Mickey's
Hollywood and Vine
'Ohana dinner
'Ohana character breakfast
The Crystal Palace
Trail's End
Tusker House


The date ranges (inclusive) for Holiday Dining available for 2012 and 2013 so far include:

03/30/2012 to 04/15/2012

06/08/2012 to 08/18/2012

12/21/2012 to 01/06/2013
 
This information came from here:  http://www.wdwmagic.com/holiday-dining-dates.htm

That is the DDP prices but I was mainly showing you the dates b/c you said you weren't sure when the lower prices start. Looks like they start the 1st. :smileyhappy:

I thought that when they went from the higher DDP in Dec to the lower DDP Jan 1st that would mean a lower price but I think Deb is right and I'm wrong. I looked more on Mousesavers and here is what they said, "Note that “holiday pricing” (i.e. higher prices) will be in effect for some restaurants (particularly the buffets and character meals) from mid-December through the first few days of January (holiday season)". So I think Deb's info is correct and it will be through the 6th. 

Here is Disney's "offical" pricing for Tusker House. I would guess you would be paying the top price at holiday time.

$$ ($15 to $35.99)
Price per person*

I just went on All Ears and have you seen the pics of the Little Mermaid section of the Art of Animation? It's so cute!

Thank you Tawnya.   I had not even thought about the Tusker House lunch until I read your question. 

I asked my DDs if they wanted to try the Yak & Yeti, and read off the menu to them. . .or go see Daisy for lunch.   They chose Daisy.     I switched to lunch there.     My plan was to hit AK emh to do the Asian side (we have never even been over there) and then grab lunch before leaving.    I know Tusker is not as close as Yak & Yeti (from the map, not personal experience) but this way they should get some Daisy time.

I'm looking forward to hearing about lunch from both of you. I loved Tusker House but we did breakfast. I'm very curious about lunch!!

Did ya'll see on disboards where it was announced Be Our Guest will serve wine & beer?  It is one of those hot topics over there - should alcohol be allowed in the Magic Kingdom?   No - I'm not wanting to debate it here. . LOL. . .just didn't know if anyone was looking for any interesting reading.

I dumped our Chef Mickey dinner.   Since we have the characters pretty much covered between  'Ohana,  Cape May and Tusker House it seemed safe to let it go.    I booked Tony's instead.  It's on a Sunday, and it's a late ADR (7:00 pm), on a MK emh evening.   I can't see us staying for rides (as that is daylight savings day too), but I know my DDs love Tony's.    No dining plan means I could just order two servings of fried zuchinni (share one, hog the other one) and skip real food. . .just like I would at home.  LOL

Yea, I saw that too. Crazy. All the "Walt will be turning over in his grave" "MK will be ruined forever", blah, blah, blah. LOL I think the wine especially fits perfectly into the French theme of the restaurant. Plus, I agree that at the end of the day, where else do they need beer and wine more than MK? :smileywink: Maybe there would be less stressed out parents therefore less stressed out kids and it could really be a more happy place. :smileywink:

I really like Tony's. I like that move. You are right-characters are covered. :smileyhappy:

I couldn't debate the topic if I wanted to.  My feelings are so mixed.

I mean if someone wants to go to MK drunk, they are going to go to MK drunk.   Not serving it in there isn't going to stop them.

On the flip side I've read where some birthday parties at Chuck E Cheese locations that serve beer have had parental fights.   So arming stressed parents who have been with wound up kids all day with alcohol isn't always a great combo.

But, back to the first view - wine/beer does go with French cuisine.. . .if they are trying to be authentic, you kind of need it.

I'm sure if Walt was going to turn over in his grave it would be about something else. . . .
