    CongratsLieisa, it's funny how we have all seen each others families grow up virtually and their achievements etc. and all gradually becoming empty nesters but still not ready to give up on Disney yet. Do make sure you take time to go the Boardwalk and walk round some of the hotels and look at their gingerbread and chocolate creations. We o to the Grand Floridian as well and take the monorail to Polynesian and Contemporary hotels. Nobody does Christmas decs like Disney. We arrive just after you leave unfortunately so wont get chance to meet but have a great holiday and here's to the next 10 years as a member.Advice from people like yourself on the other side of the fence is invaluable to other people as they know you are not biased in any way. So thank you to you as well.

    All the Disney hotels, if you go follow the directions to the Boardwalk hotel (you need to take photo id to get pat the gatekeeper) tell them you want to look around and they will tell you where to park. From the Boardwalk car park youu can walk around the Lake and see the Boardwalk, Beach , Yacht , Swan and Dolphin hotels, each with their own decorations. At the Beach club in the evening they have a marshmallow toasting (meant to be sing along but they werent singing when we went last year) and then show a film on a giant screen on the beach.
    The other hotels you do the same, the Grand Floridian gingerbread house/shop was amazing and we were lucky enough the evening we were there that Mickey and Minnie came in for a photo session.
