Published: November 6, 2009 at 12:17 PMI can't go too far for the holidays this year, but luckily Busch Gardens in Williamsburg is going to be doing their first ever ChristmasTown celebration. We're going to do the dining with Santa thing for the niece and hopefully catch some of the cool shows and get some good wintry snacks. Something about fried bananas foster. mmmmm. Griffon may also be open depending on the weather, but that's not a deal breaker for me.
Published: November 6, 2009 at 12:24 PMWe will be checking out BGW Christmas Town one weekend.
Published: November 6, 2009 at 12:45 PMSadly no x-mas trips this year. We went to wdw/universal/BGT last year and had a GREAT time, only wish we had money to do it every year!!!
Look forward to picture's/video's to see the fun I'm missing.
Published: November 6, 2009 at 1:32 PMWe're going to Florida from the UK on the 30th November for 2 weeks. We're staying at a Disney hotel for the first time ever. In the past we have always stayed off site. We'll be hitting all of the Disney parks, Universal and Seaworld. Taking my two boys aged 3 and 18mths and couldn't be more excited. Nan and Grandad are coming too so built in babysitters for a night out. Shame there's no more pleasure island because I just loved the adventurers club. Looks like it'll be Citywalk. Also looking forward to the T rex cafe at Downtown Disney as we last visited in 2007 before it arrived. Cant wait for Mickeys Merry Christmas Party and my forst view of the castle......Here we Come
Published: November 6, 2009 at 2:26 PMLucky for me, the parks will be all decked out for the holidays in time for my birthday next week! Now to convince my husband to go to MVMCP using the military discount. ;)
Published: November 6, 2009 at 7:25 PMI'll be headed to Silver Dollar City's An Old Time Christmas in early December. Dazzling lights, great shows, wonderful food, and delectable hot chocolate are all part of a joyous Christmas festival. If you live in the Midwest, you owe it to yourself to visit SDC during the holidays!
Published: November 6, 2009 at 8:37 PMunfortunately, increasing prices from parking lots to admission, does not agree with decreasing salaries and curent econemy.
Published: November 6, 2009 at 9:46 PMI will be having breakfast with the Grinch in December at Universal Orlando with my fiance and future step-kids. I will be using the Universal restaurant pass to eat and ride the Cat in the Hat with the kids, then leave before we have to pay and head to Sea World where we all have passes.
Published: November 6, 2009 at 9:51 PMI go every year to Disney World for both Halloween and Christmas. Not this year, can't afford it.
Published: November 6, 2009 at 10:20 PMi will be heading to BGW for christmas town But it will seem really strange not riding or seeing BBW
Published: November 7, 2009 at 9:04 AMMy grandmother form Hong Kong is coming, and she hasn't been in the U.S. in over 18 years. So we're going to take her to the WDW and Universal parks during the Thanksgiving holidays. But this visit I'm going to be taking it easy(as in not trying to hit every ride) because during the spring semester, I'll be doing the Disney College Program.
Published: November 7, 2009 at 4:29 PMLet see... I will be going to Walt Disney World's Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party, Seaworld holdays, Universal's macy's, Islands of Adventure Grinchmas, and Busch gardens too
Published: November 7, 2009 at 10:42 PMI will be going to Dollywood's Smoky Mountain Christmas the last two weekends of November and many times between Dec 26-Jan 2. I've been going now for 19 of the parks 20 seasons for the festival and love it!
Published: November 9, 2009 at 3:28 AMIll be heading to WDW for Christmas this year..Planning on going between Thanksgiving and Christmas..Nothing like free admission to the parks (Thanks to Family) But really just want to go to MK and check out Space Mtn. Rehab, ANd see the Castle..
Published: November 9, 2009 at 6:14 AMA person should go right after Thanksgiving if they want to enjoy a theme park. All of the christmas decorations are usually up and the crowds are small, so you have them to yourself. If you go during the holidays, the crowds can ruin the experience. It is worth it to get the kids out of school for a few days.
Published: November 9, 2009 at 10:28 AMMy family will be spending Christmas week in Disney for the first time. Buy since I know how the crowds are gonna get, on Christmas Day we are not going to the theme park, we will be doing something else.
Published: November 9, 2009 at 12:30 PMAs usual, we will be holding off until Jan 3rd for our yearly Disney trip. Holiday travel is too expensive and the 1st week of Jan is pretty empty and very reasonable.
