No theme parks for me over the holidays, but with how busy they are from reports you read, its almost makes me glad I wont be there(again almost).
But I cant wait for my next visit to FLA next Dec(well before the x-mas rush). Nothing gets one in the holdiay mood more than spending quality time at WDW/USF!!!!!(also BGT).

Nowhere. All the theme parks in England are shut..


Besides, there are video games to play!

Option F: unknown at present. A lack of local relatives does this to you unfortunately, plus I haven't heard a thing from anyone this season so far. If any semi-local get-togethers are planned, I'll be there. If not, then I'll most likely go with my backup plan, code-named DLR. :)

I can understand being excited about spending the holidays at WDW (Walt Disney World) but this is the first time I've seen someone excited about holidays at USF (University of South Florida)...granted, the football team gave us a few thrills this season, and we're looking forward to the Sun Bowl, but still... ;-)

By the way, we now call it BGA (Busch Gardens Africa) vice BGT (Busch Gardens Tampa). Very close to USF, by the way, so you can kill two birds (preferably not partridges in pear trees) with one visit.

Merry Christmas, to all!

Disney is incredible at Christmas!

There is no way I'd go to Disney at Christmas. It is wonderful to be there the first couple of weeks in Dec. This time we are going mid-January. I'm hopinh for few people, extra short lines and/or no waiting. Is this possible at Disney in mid-January?

Thats a good question Mary, I too with my family are planning to go to WDW in january. Has anyone been there in jan. and how is the weather there during this time. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't go near WDW Christmas week - been there; done that and it was awful!!! Going a few weeks before is much better - you can see the decorations, take part in any holiday activities and you miss the massive crowds. Disney isn't that bad mid-January, but check to see when their marathon weekend is - it can get pretty crowded at that time. Bring sweaters and jackets since it can be chilly - especially at night.
