    WOO HOO, We're going to DL!! Need help.

    OK, My wife called me at work today and said she didn't want to wait until early March to make our next trek to DLR (which is what we had been planning for the last year or so). She wants to move it up to the week AFTER Thanksgiving. I'm really jazzed. I need the break from work and what a better way to do it? To top it off we are going to stay at the Grand Californian. We plan on staying for almost a week and it's nearly $1000.00 cheaper than if we stayed with our original March plans.

    I need some pointers though. We've never been to DLR at that time of the year. Will the Christmas decorations be up? Will HM still have the NBC overlay? How are the crowds traditionally during this week? Are there any special events geared toward the holiday season that early? We're even thinking about spending a day at Knott's. Is that a good idea or no?

    In general, what should we look for and also avoid during our stay?

    YAY!!! I'm going to Disneyland!!!!

    Yes, the Christmas decorations will be up. And Yes, the Halloween/Christmas overlay for the HM will also be running.

    Congratulations! I know that you will have a great time. The weather should be perfect.

    Christmastime at Disney, you lucky people! Knotts was great fun too, but IMO Mrs. Knotts Chicken Dinner is kind of overrated. Don't forget to ride Xcellerator!

    We're going the same week, JF!

    I think everyone answered your questions....but I've been this same week before and it was awesome.

    In the past (pre-50th celebration), there's been a lull between Thanksgiving weekend and the Candlelight Procession weekend. I've gone twice during that lull, and you get it all--the holiday decorations, the attractions are all going, but the crowds are light(ish).

    We're also considering a day at Knott's or Universal...the kids have never been to either one!

    We go that week too, my daughter doesn't know we are going yet. It is a birthday surprise( birthday is the 28th) and she will find out 1 1/2 days before we leave. I love all the decorations in the park.

    Thanks to everyone for the great input. BUT, what about the fireworks and/or Fantasmic? Will they be limited to the weekends by the end of November? We are spending Thanksgiving with my mother in the central valley before heading on to DLR. I want to make sure we have an opportunity to see at least one of the two. Thanks guys.

    I wish I was going to DL too, but I am stuck at WDW this weekend. But *joy*... I will be at DLP on the 22nd, and TDR on the 26th. Anyone around those parts of the World willing to meet?

    Yeah, Xcellerator is good for revisiting Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner...

    Yes, this year. That's why we're so excited. Just like that our wait time was shortened by 3 months. I have no doubt there will be MC-ers lurking about and I do plan on keeping my eyes open.
