As usual, Magic Kingdom was fantastic but we never got a chance to check out the new Fantasyland ride (Little Mermaid) because the FastPasses were all gone by the time we reached the kiosk sometime around 11:30. Standby wait time was 95 minutes. An eternity when you are there with a toddler or an impatient Daddy.

Animal Kingdom was also fun but understaffed for the amount of people arriving in the mid-morning. My husband had to wait one hour in line to "activate" our previously purchased Florida resident tickets. Once inside, we only got to do a few things and eat lunch before 5:00 (the time when several of the rides stop) snuck up on us.

We visited all four DisneyWorld parks and Downtown Disney. As always, the staff is wonderful and very helpful. Disney always has so much to see and seems to always improve from our previous visits. Loved Epcot. It's like two parks in one. As my son gets older he appreciates "touring the world" more. Loved trying food in different countries - U.K. Fish & Chips is great and the restaurant in Norway had great sandwiches and desserts. Everest and safari at Animal Kingdom are must see items! Magic Kingdom has so much to do and see and my son loved the new Sorcerers Card game. You pick up free cards near City Hall or in FrontierLand and when you visit different parts of the park you use the key to unlock videos to catch villains. We visited Hollywood Studios on a slow day. Short waits for Star Tours and other rides. We were also able to get into all the shows and arrived shortly before they started.

My 5 year old had a wonderful time at Walt disney world at Christmas. It truly even brings out the child in the adults. We loved every minute of it.

I do agree that some details about Disney don't seem as nice as in the past, but it was minor. The choice of quick service food in MK could use some tweaking. I am a collector of Disney Tinkerbell ornaments, cels and stretched canvas. The pickings were slim and of low quality, a major disappointment for me. Beyond that, I always managed to find a clean restroom, pleasant workers, cashiers that went out of their way to find a Dug toy or the right size t shirt.
Fireworks are second to none and Tink flying from the castle will always bring a tear. My boys are now 21 & 18 and we all love vacationing in Disney.

Visited Epcot, Downtown Disney and Hollywood Studios. Thoroughly enjoyed doing almost everything at Epcot. Lunched at LeCellier restaurant, food was spectacular! Loved Test Track and Sorin'. Dinner at 50's Diner at Hollywood Studios, food was average, but the atmosphere was fun. Tower of Terror, Backlot tour, and Lights, Motors, and Action were all great!
