Re: Yuletide Fantasy
We took the Yuletide Fantasy tour last December and really loved it. You get to do lots of cool things - you start off by strolling around a deserted World Showcase before it opens to the public while your tour guide explains a lot of the Christmas customs from the various countries. You also get to visit a couple of the resorts and the theme parks for an up close and personal look at how they do what they do with the fabulous Christmas decorations. The tour ends with a visit to the workshop and warehouse where the Disney decorations are made and stored. This place is HUGE. You're given special safety goggles to wear while you're inside the workshops as frequently there are cast members busily at work making like Santa's elves as they create little pieces of Disney Christmas magic. At the end of the tour, you're given both a lovely Disney Christmas ornament plus a special collectors' pin commemorating the tour. Both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone. Oh, and before I forget, a special tour bus takes your group from place to place so that the amount of walking involved is not bad at all.
