    Thank you for starting this thread! :) So excited for Holiday Time, especially with all the craziness that's going on now...
    Exactly! I'm happy to drown myself in speculation about what this year's holiday season will bring. I wouldn't mind a few rides on IASW Holiday right about now, too. Thank goodness for Youtube :love:

    Totally! Just the thought of the castle lighting brings tears right now. We skipped our annual Holiday Time palooza last year because I was sick (with a URI!), so this year will be extra special for many reasons!

    Oh my! I'm glad you recovered, but missing the DL holidays had to be rough! Here's to a good holiday season for you this year🥂

    I moved my last week's trip to Dec 6-10. I haven't booked airfare yet. I have to use my delta credit.

    I've got you added! Feel free to post your hotel if you'd like and I'll get that updated.

    I've added you! Please let us know what you think of the Westin. I'm so excited that there will be more hotel options soon.

    I have been to WDW twice at Christmas, but never DL. Excited, hopefully this trip will happen. I am in the midst of rescheduling a WDW trip because the wedding we are going to is being rescheduled.

    Yay! Hopefully this will be a trip that won’t get canceled this year...Grand California VGC 12/27-1/1. We’ve done show dinner packages in the past during Thanksgiving. Any ideas for something new? (It’s me, DH, DS15, DS13)

    Have you done the WOC Dessert Party for the holiday show, "Season of Light"? That is always a fun holiday treat!

    I may just have to do this! We did a dessert party at WDW before being led to our designated area to watch the show which I didn't like too much. This would be a huge dessert splurge and as you say "fun holiday treat":) That's now on my research list-New Years Midnight WOC Dessert Party? :goodvibes
