Holiday 1999 WDW Trip Reports


Noreen Chin - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: CBR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: As I post this report, in October 2002, this is truly a flashback to almost three years ago. I find that it's really fun to go back and read some of the older reports as they often spark rememberances about my own trips from years gone by that I'd forgotten about.

Alpha - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: ASSR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Frequent
  • Comments:  Quoting from the report, "It's hard to imagine that if all goes according to our plan, we'll have our child with us next time we're at WDW...We went this time with the knowledge that this is the last time it will be all about what we want...That's why we were looking forward to this last opportunity to visit WDW as a couple -- one last blast before we become parents."  Of course, Barb and I had a "final, no-kids" trip, too.  And a second one.  And a third.  And a fourth.  We ended up waiting three years for our son to come along  ;)

Christina gill - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: BVR, Dolphin
  • Accommodations: Standard Room, 1 Bedroom Vacation Home
  • Ages Represented in Group: Toddler, Pre-School, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments:  This is a summary style report, not as greatly detailed as some...and I know a lot of you like that!  The Gill's traveled with their two children, ages four and two, so if you're wondering what it's like to do WDW with kids, here's at least one example.

Rachel Warriner - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane
  • Resort: ASMuR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: Rachel visited WDW during the December RADP.  This is just a fun report filled with recollections from the trip.  It's not an intense play-by-play, but very fun to read.

Dennis Greenblatt - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane
  • Resort: WL
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments:  A shorter report, but chocked-full of detail.  The descriptions of the decorations at Wilderness Lodge are priceless!  One unique twist to this report is that, since Dennis had been to Disneyland Paris twice in the last year and half prior to this trip, he contrasts WDW's Magic Kingdom to DLP.  It certainly makes for an interesting report.

Judy Fallon - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: Offsite (Parent's home)
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult, Senior
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent, Infrequent
  • Comments:  This is a short report of Judy's one-day with her Parents.  The threesome spent the whole time at Epcot enjoying the Millennium Village and the attractions at the unique park.

Tami Farmer - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: ASSR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Infrequent
  • Comments:  This is a fun to read report on a relatively brief trip in mid-December.  All of the holiday-goings-on were on-going, and the Farmer troupe took advantage of it all.  The report is written in a play-by-play fashion, but is just sufficiently detailed to keep just about everyone happy.

Pat Edaburn - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: CBR, DL
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie (but DL Veterans)
  • Comments: Pat and Lori visited

Tori Lamoureux - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Personal Van
  • Resort: SOG
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Teen, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Frequent, Infrequent, Rookie, DVC Member
  • Comments:  Tori and her family visited the World just before Christmas.  The trip included a stay at Shades of Green (we've had a lot of those lately) and a long drive from Oklahoma.  The report is written in a daily summary style with plenty of detail for those folks that are into that kind of thing.  One last thing, Tori's daughter uses a wheelchair, so the report does cover issues regarding access that may be helpful for some trip planners.

Amy Johnson - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: CR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Infrequent
  • Comments:  This is a play-by-play style report on a late December (just before Christmas) trip enjoyed by Amy, her fiance', Jason, and Jason's mom and brother.  The report is fun to read, and it gives evidence that this pin trading thing can be addicting.  Beware  :)

Carol Kelley - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: ASMuR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments:  Carol visited WDW in early December to join up with several other folks at the annual RADP (rec.arts.disney.parks) meet.  She traveled solo this time, but enjoyed meeting up with many folks from the newsgroup.  Carol also visited Islands of Adventure, so this report includes a first-hand account of that relatively-new park.

Sue Holland - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: OKWR, DL, HHI
  • Accommodations: Standard Room, 2 Bedroom Vacation Home
  • Ages Represented in Group: Teen, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Infrequent, DVC Member
  • Comments:  This is the documentation of Sue's sixth trip of 1999.  As usual, this is a wonderfully detailed report covering just about everything that the group did.  Also, as usual, Sue summarizes the trip with a great list of lessons-learned that we can all use to our own advantage.

Joseph L. Riccitelli, Jr. - December 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: ASSR, Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments:  Joe visited WDW in early December to join many others at the RADP (rec.arts.disney.parks) meet.  This is a VERY detailed report that covers the trip planning process in detail, as well as providing a very detailed play-by-play of the whole vacation.  As it turns out, this is one of the lengthiest reports on the site!

Lowell Ross - November 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Suite
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Rookie
  • Comments:  Lowell and Lucy enjoyed a nine day visit just after Thanksgiving and into early December.  They stayed offsite (more and more a rare aspect of trip reports of late).  The report is written in a daily summary style, so it's not "too" detailed, but there's plenty to learn here.

Binnie Betten & Beth Eloheimo - November 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: ASMuR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Rookie
  • Comments:  Binnie and took her grandaughter Alisha, and Beth brought her niece, Renee, along for a wonderful trip to WDW during the 4th annual RADP meet events.  This is a great report, mostly told by memory, of a fun trip.  It's written in a summary style, so those of you that really enjoy that type of report will love this one.

Lisa Willis - November 1999

  • Time of Year: Holiday Season
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: CSR, ASMoR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room (two rooms)
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Infrequent
  • Comments:  This is a wonderful report of a nice, long family trip that spanned ten days (including travel).  The report has  plenty of detail including a summary of expenses and some nice descriptions of the family's meal experiences.
