New here

Hi,
Im new here. We're going to Disneyworld in December for Christmas. It will be our first time there. We were in Disneyland 2 years ago in the summer and enjoyed ourselves except for the heat. We're very excited to go to Disneyworld.

Hi Thank you Smile. It will be my husband, my son who is 16, my daughter who will be 13 in September and my youngest who will be 11 on the 26th of this month and me of course. We're actually staying off site. We're driving from Canada, so we're leaving Dec 12th, the kids think we're leaving the 13th. So it'll be a surprise for them that we're leaving a day early. We're stopping at Mount Rushmore on the way down. Than in New Jersey and New York. We want to try and meet Cake Boss. We'll be in Orlando the 19th until January 1st. We're going to Mickey's Christmas Party on the 20th. Ive already made an itinerary for us. It'll probably be changed ten million times before we go.lol.

welcome

sounds like a great road trip. You're going to be there during a busy week. If you have any restaurants you want to try, make an advance dining reservation (ADR) as soon as you. If you have any questions on the restaurants, feel free to ask. We like to talk about Disney food.

I had thought about road tripping from Minnesota for our next trip when we take my sisters as a surprise graduation present, but when we did the math it didn't really end up saving us any money over plane tickets, plus we'd have to take more days off of work and I wanted to make sure I still liked my sisters enough to enjoy the trip by the time we got to WDW! laugh I would love to have enough time to road trip down with time to make touristy pit stops on the way though!

How fun! The great Canadian/American Road Trip!

The weather will be nice when you're there; you won't have the sweltering heat to contend with.

Were there any rides at Disneyland that you especially liked that you're looking forward to visiting at Disney World?

Hope you and your family have a wonderful time! We're looking forward to hearing more about the planning stages of your trip!!!

welcome there are lots us of Canadians on here. I am now a vancouver islander. If you are going to Mount Rushmore on the way that's going to be quite the drive. Enjoy.

There are some very knowledgable and wonderfully friendly people here.
