You have to decide if you’re a Tigger or an Eeyore

We enjoy this trip so much we even did it twice in one calendar year. No two trips have ever been the same.Wow, you two have done this so many times!! That makes me feel like its going to be an amazing, very fun experience! Have you done any of them with the DIS, or have they all been regular ABD trips?
This trip is going to have a Philly invasion, so far it seems everyone except Brian and I are from there.
I am soooo excited that we'll be there for the Christmas season! We were able to do IASW holiday overlay and the HM overlay last year when we were at DL for the Star Wars half marathon in earlyish January, but besides those two ride overlays we've never seen any other decorations or parades or anything.
What is your favorite, can't miss part of Christmas at DL?
I'm also excited we'll be eating at Big Thunder Ranch BBQ as a group, since it sounds like that whole area is going away, which makes me pretty sad. Don't they have some sort of Christmas carnival back there?
All of our previous BSM adventures have been with the Dis. We also did London/Paris/Disneyland Paris and Italy trip with the Dis, we did Ireland on our own with ABD IN 2014.
The IASW and HM overlays are fantastic, the nighttime Christmas parade was a spectacular, and I don't usually like parades.
If you have the time get over to the Farmers Market and The Grove, we finished up our last minute holiday shopping at the Grove under palm trees and Christmas lights.
Big Thunder Ranch BBQ on the first trip was not good, last trip in 2013 it was terrific. I do not remember a Christmas carnival there.
Grand California main lobby is unbelievable at Christmas time.
