Today I am just 48hrs away from liftoff to enjoy a swift holiday visit at WDW with the biggest group of Liners ever!
I’m starting this trip report a bit early since I’ll be sharing this space with a few other pals that may be familiar to you and some of them arrive before me.
I’ve never been to WDW in the month of December before, and I’ve barely hit fringe holiday time at the extreme ends, in early November and early January when things were just going up and coming down. So I’ve not seen the place in its full glory and I cannot wait! I’ll be focusing this time most intentionally on the holiday offerings - decor, entertainment, snacks, and snowp!
My plans are relatively loose this trip, so you’ll have to follow me to see where I end up. I can tell you with certainty that I arrive Friday afternoon and I leave Tuesday afternoon. What happens in the middle is up for discussion.
Flexibility is also of tremendous importance since I’m also visiting with my daughter, Julia, who is in the Disney College Program at this time. This will serve as a between-the-holidays holiday visit; her program ends just after Christmas so this timing made the most sense. Her role is a little bit in flux right now, and so are her hours, so I may be zigging when others are zagging so as to prioritize time with her over all else. Then again, maybe she’ll join the group and learn about shenaniganing (is that a word?) from the pros.
Are you ready! Let’s get to the most magical Christmas Tree Farm on Earth we call Walt Disney World!
Wohoo! Swift holiday visits are the best! Have a great trip.
There are to be references.
Well, there’s one in the title. How 'bout that? Can’t promise there will be more!
How did I not know this?? I’m so excited for you to see it all!!
I am so extremely excited!!! I wish it was Saturday!!!
This is my chance to try to convert you to swiftism.
The title reference is here somewhere….
I’m so confused. I assumed this was @Flavita 's TR from the title.
I can see how you would think that.
The trip title came from the evolution of this gigantic meetup, which began its planning over a year ago IIRC. Over time, more and more people made plans to be there, myself included. As people announced coming, folks would say, “Oh! You’ll be there too?!” So when I was listening to Christmas music the other day I heard this lyric and immediately thought of this trip and it all just made sense!
How the heck is this not @Flavita trip report??
Oh gosh now I’m feeling bad!
Nooooo!!! This is great!!! Don’t feel bad.
I wasn’t planning on making any Swift references (I’m actually serious). You are in charge!!!
OK. If you say it’s okay then I won’t feel bad
Forget about discussing Swifties…it is THIS that I am most shocked about! How exciting for you!
Thanks! I’m pretty excited myself, and I am definitely prioritizing holiday things over all else this time!!
After this trip I think the only month remaining during which I’ve not visited is March. I could also say May, but on a technicality I was there on 5/1 once.
This is a little shocking to me.
Also I didn’t know you were a Swiftie.
I don’t know if I can be considered a Swiftie - I think that implies hardcore fandom.
But I do really enjoy her music
