As I said on the DHS thread, Yes, I know we are crazy. We all understand that it will be crazy. It was the only time I could get the whole family to WDW.

We will be 9 people staying at FW in a rented camper. Arriving 12/23, leaving 12/28.

Our FP+ are Jingle Cruise (9:05a-10:05a), Space Mountain (10:45a-11:45a), and Mine Train (6:30p-7:30p). We also have an ADR for HDDR at 4:00p.

I planned this as a very laid back day. Any input is appreciated!!

I might be mistaken but I think that Christmas is one of the days that has the potential of reaching capacity. If that happens, you might not be able to get back into the park in the evening. You might want to re-think some of your planning?

Hmm, just read something about the different phases of closing and it looks like you'll be ok since you will be re-entering the park that day AND have an in-park reservation (the dessert party). So, never mind.

I'll be there with ya, crazy and all.
I think we are going to try and get there when it opens at 6 AM. I doubt we'll make it, we are so not early morning folks.
We'll only be at MK for the first half of the day. We are celebrating Christmas dinner over at AK to do Harambe at Night. Did it on my Birthday and LOVED it. Perfect way for us to celebrate the day

Nah, not for anyone but folks buying a 1 day ticket at the gate, with no ADR and no FP. If that.

he's right
Be open to the idea of leaving before 2:30. We did Studios on Christmas Day a few years ago, opening through lunch. I think we walked out by about 12:30 or so and the place was PACKED with a huge line of folks at the ticket windows waiting to get in. I can't imagine staying a few more hours would have been fun. You don't necessarily need to plan to leave earlier, but if it seems people aren't enjoying themselves, call an audible.
