Okay guys, and gals, I know it is a bit early but some of us have to dream since we canít be there every time we would like. I am in the beginning stages of planning our next Disneyland family tripÖ in November 2008. I am hoping some of my fellow Micechatters can help me with their infinite knowledge and wisdom and, yes, even opinions. I realize everyone will just be guessing but many of you seem to have magical powers, or connections, to come up with information that some of us do not have. Also, I thought that maybe while this time of year is still fresh on everyoneís mind it might be a good time to go ahead and ask a few questions.
First, since the new castle Christmas lights were just added this year, what are the chances that they will use them again next year? I really am hoping they will be there again because they look so beautiful at night.
Next, I am looking at dates beginning from November 10th. Veteranís day falls on a Tuesday for 2008. How does a holiday that falls on Tuesday usually affect the crowds? Will people most likely go to DL mainly on the weekend before the 11th or will they be more likely to make it a long weekend by taking off Monday, as well, and stay on through Tuesday?
And last, judging by this year, will November 21 most likely be the day to kick off the holiday season for 2008 with the parade and fireworks? Would the electrical parade be showing only closer to Christmas or does it run for Thanksgiving? (Why, oh why, do they run it on such a limited basis?) Is there anything that makes Thanksgiving extra special? Is it really worth fighting the crowd?
Thanks in advance to all of you who help us with questions! We would be lost without you! You do honestly help some of us come up with the stuff that makes for the most memorable and magical DL experiences.
