We have just returned from a weeks stay in Fussen and had a great time. You could visit both of the castles, then take the cable car up the Tegelburg if the weather is clear. If you're reasonably fit walk back down the mountain and take in great views of the castles( takes about 2 hours). There is the Crystal Therme in Schwangau where you could relax and enjoy the heated indoor and outdoor pools. Again lovely views of the castles from the pools. You can enjoy a meal there and also have a cocktail at the pool bar. A lovely way to spend the evening if you've had a busy day. If the weather allows you could hire a bike and cycle to lake Hopfensee which takes about 30 mins from Fussen. There is a cycle track around the lake and lovely places to eat and drink. Buses also run from Fussen to Hopfensee. Im sure you'll have a great time!

Fuessen is a lovely in winter, like a fairy tale village. If you're there on one of the first two weekends in December you can see the Christmas market. Since you will have a car, you can also visit the rococo wonder of the nearby Wies Church (on the UNESCO World Heritage List) and the Ettal Monastery. Here's a good link about Fuessen and the area in winter. www.bavaria.by/christmas-market-in-fuessen

You might want to reserve your Neuschwanstein tickets in advance, to avoid the long line for same-day tickets. I don't know how crowded it will be in December, though.
