Yes. We're catching it just as it starts this year. Disney will be decorated and the Universal stuff starts (Nov. 16 once we get there also (Nov 13 to Nov. 23rd vacation )...Nice to have Express pass for a few days. Knock off all the rides, and repeats those days, and then take it easy when at CBBR....We even had a few days where it was warm enough (high 70's low 80's) to hit the pool without freezing when out of the heated water.That was the idea lol...we *did* have SMSM rate at Endless...but all of the extra activities and amenities at CBBR were the major draw...and I wanted to have 2 days of express *just* in case....if I had not gotten such a great rate for RPR I would have just taken CBBR...but at the $185 rate I felt it was a good price to pay for ride insurance lol. Next year we'll have to see how the holiday dates fall ect....thinking about a stay that bridges across the beginning of XMas festivities so that we can see the regular castle show and the non holiday park look. I'm hoping they plan on starting holiday things the weekend of 11/14-11/15 next year...with the way the calendar falls..I'm afraid it may be 11/20-11/21 though.
