I'm now on the waiting list for points at the Villas at the Wlderness Lodge. I'm hoping to have my points by January so I can book for a few days after Dec 27, 2014. We are on a 7 night DCL Christmas cruise until then (12/21-12/27). I don't think we could hit WDW before because of the school schedule. So I'm considering going afterwards for maybe 3 nights. The posts in disboards make the idea of going seem like the most horrible idea in the world. Here are my thoughts on it: why not go even if its just to enjoy the ambience and get on zero rides since I'm paying holiday airfare to fly all the way out there anyway? It would seem silly to just go for the cruise.
So does anyone like this time of year at all? Will we be miserable even with low ride expectations? We can enjoy the resorts, pools and water parks (if it's warm enough), right? My son only likes the wave pool and lazy river at this point. No slides. (He's got anxiety disorder amount other things so that is probably why). One person on disboards brought up how crowded it will be to eat. We don't do much TS so would this be the same issue for quick service? I might have to get a 1 bedroom villa or rent a car I guess? I really don't want to rent a car though.
Amy positives about going? It's the busiest time of year so someone must like it, right?
Thanks for your advice and help! :)
