A Disney Christmas Open Thread

Hope everyone has a merry Christmas, Festivus, or what have you. If you were lucky enough to make it to a Disney Theme Park for the holiday then you were likely to encounter huge crowds, long lines, and sour faces from guests and cast members alike. I’d love to hear your stories so consider this an open thread to post about your Disney Christmas.

Here’s one to get you started.

  1. My friend and I went to Disney world from the 17th to the 21st of December this year. I guess we lucked out because while we were there, there were hardly any crowds. We walked on to most of the rides, save for Peter Pan’s flight which had an atrociously and inexplicably long line, and rode several rides twice. I guess we left right before the rush! It was probably th best vacation ever with all the lights, music, and glamour. I don’t think I could go back at any other time of the year.

  2. I worked guest control and an attraction group at Disneyland this holiday. The park was extremely crowded but I tried my best to keep everything moving. There were many people who were obviously unhappy with the amount of people in the park (that’s what happens when you come to disneyland on a holiday folks) but I also found that there were many very friendly and understanding people visiting as well. I actually enjoyed my holiday at Disneyland, it was made a bit brighter by the kindness of those few people that understood that we were all trying our best.

  3. I went to Disneyland on the 23rd, and it was perfect. There were a lot of people there, but with some well timed fast passes and a bit of luck, my friend and I managed to have one of the best times we’ve ever had there. We didn’t quite walk onto rides, but we never waited more than half an hour, which I think kept us from getting bored. I noticed a lot of grumpy people there that day though, so maybe it was just our attitudes. I can understand the folks with children being grouchy, but a lot of those people had no apparent reason. I think sometimes people are determined not to make good of things. Anyway, most of the cast members smiled at us, weary smiles though they were. Poor kids. :) They looked like they were working hard, and we appreciated that. holiday time is fun.
