Holiday 1996 WDW Trip Reports


Jennifer Longenecker - December 1996

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: DL
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie
  • Comments: Jennifer and her new husband John spent their honeymoon at WDW in December. This report covers several restaurants...plus the usual great insights of a rookie visit. I particularly enjoyed Jennifer's accounts of the Hoop Dee Doo, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, and the Jolly Holidays Dinner Show.

Lisa Harris - December 1996

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: WL, PO
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: Lisa's report on her second trip in 1996 (this time with her husband and son) focuses less on attractions and more on restaurants, hotels, and lessons learned.. She stayed at Port Orleans and Wilderness Lodge on this trip. To learn more, read Lisa's report from October, too...(she was lucky enough to go to WDW twice in 1996!)

Doug Corey - December 1996

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: BWR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Infant/Toddler, Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: Doug, his wife Kay, and daughters Rebecca (age almost 6) and Erin (age 3 and a half) were joined by Grandma Audrey (Kay's mom) on this trip. The family stayed at the Boardwalk resort for their early month trip which included all of Disney's Christmas shows and special events! A great story of a wonderful trip...

Michelle Warner - December 1996

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: WL, ASR, FWC
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Infant/Toddler, Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: This is the granddaddy of this year's Christmas trip reports! If you didn't know there was a contest going on, there wasn't...but I think Michele's wonderful narrative would have won top honors! During the course of the trip, the Warners stayed at almost every resort at WDW (ok, I exaggerate a bit here). I guess one reason why I enjoyed the report so much is that Caleb and Michelle's two children made me think about what my family's trips to WDW will be like in a few years....I can't wait!

Joe Cochran - December 1996

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: YBCR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: Joe and his two friends stayed at the Beach Club and had a great trip -- three adults, without families, as a group of friends. It's an unusual story for that reason, but the trip was a great one!

Mike Bachand - December 1996

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: BWR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Mike Bachand and his wife made their annual trek to WDW in December. This is the story of that vacation.

John Marone - December 1996

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: DL
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Infant/Toddler, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: John, his wife, and their 15-month old daughter made this trip. This is a brief report, but filled with useful information.

Terry Ratliff - December 1996

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: DL
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie
  • Comments: Terry and his wife spent a few days at WDW and concluded that they wouldn't return! Read the report to find out why...very interesting point of view. Even though I disagree with Terry's conclusion, he says some nice things about my web site, so he must be an ok guy.

Linda Tomsho - December 1996

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: FWC
  • Accommodations: Fort Wilderness Home
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult, Senior
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: Linda Tomsho and her husband, three kids, and mother all visited WDW in early December. Very interesting narrative. Linda and her family were struck with illness during the trip, which dampened things.
