I'll only be there for four days in December but my priority is seeing all the resorts with their decorations and seeing Epcot, MK and DHS at night all decked out with the Christmas spirit. I wish you could fit in DHS at night Tara because it's really incredible what they day with the billboards and the show on TOT!!!

Oh, I know that Linda!! I agonized over it. I was thinking about the Christmas Tree Trail at DS but you are very right about the wonderful happenings at DHS. Perhaps I will reconsider...………...

Oh my gosh!!! :love; The Christmas Tree Trail ROCKS!!!! I honestly don't know if it will be up by December 7th, but if it is, we are so there!!!

There are around 25 different themed Christmas Trees to see. You walk through the area and there is snow blowing and Santa is at the end. The trees are all highly themed and very artistic!! It is AH-mazing!!!!


This was Pinocchio's tree from last year

You will have fun with your sister I am guessing even if you just stay on the monorail and ride round after round of the property!
We haven’t gone for more than 3 or 4 days in years, and it is much more challenging to feel you’re getting to do all you want.
We have 3 days at DL in December, but only two days of park tickets. It’s easier out there, though, because you can walk so easily between the two parks. Then we’ll focus on DTD on the day we fly out (in the evening) to Aulani.
At least you and Muffin have a trip planned close to this one, don’t you?

I agree, it is so hard to try and fit everything into a shorter trip, which is what most of mine are these days! I will say that I went last December for the first time during the Christmas season, and while the Christmas Tree Trail at DS was very cool, DHS at night was my absolute favorite! That park had the best night time holiday atmosphere! It was incredible and I really wasn’t expecting to feel that way!

Hope things work out with the trip as not always easy to cut what you have planned out.

Well it just so happens that I have given this matter some thought and have found a way to fit both of these things in.
