DLP - End of Nov - Open to ideas :)

Hello Dibbsters.

Been a little while since I was last around.

We've had a bit of a Disney break since "going large" at WDW for Easter 2018. Proper kitchen sink job (14nights Beach Club - Club Level, etc.)

I've managed to convince Mrs TP that we need to rekindle some of Disney Magic and so have booked a suite at NPB Compass Club for a long weekend.

Our 2 little ladies (11 + 10) have no idea. We're gonna pretend to do a London weekend and the first they will know about seeing Mickey is when we check-in at St Pancras. They still wont be as excited as me though.

We've done DLP quite a few times when the girls were younger. Last time we stayed in Castle Club and had the most magical 4 days imaginable. (Pluto doing doggie shuffle-bums along the ground at breakfast!) I did look to go back there, but couldn't really justify splurging 3.5k all-in for two nights. (GULP)

To finally get to my point of posting... I'm just looking a for few ideas on what to do. I'm slightly aware that we will have great expectations from last being at WDW and that DLP might be a bit meh...

We've only ever stayed in DLH so any nuggets about NPD would be appreciated. We've never been during Xmas season... so anything to look out for?

I'm aware that my girls are a bit older now and not in the princess stage (eldest never). We LOVE inventions and will try to book when the when the window opens.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Cheers
TP

If you have a suite at Compass Club level booked then I believe that comes with VIP fastpass - so definitely make use of that!

Location wise the hotel is less than a 10 minute walk from the parks, so don't bother with the shuttle bus. You will also find the security lines via the hotel walkway will be significantly shorter than those where the buses come in (because that is also the same place the day trippers car park and the train station come in).

Christmas season at DLP is amazing. Don't miss the Christmas parade (watch it from Main St for added snow!) or Mickey's Big Band Show, both are fantastic.

Have a great time!

Thanks for taking the time to respond :-)

Yes the VIP Fastpasses was a consideration for the suite. When booking Disney I always get sucked into the "For a few hundred more I can get... "

Part of the attraction of NPB was it's resemblance to Beach Club. Hope we're not disappointed.

Deffo suckers for the parade so that's a given. Will check out Big Band!

Thanks
TP
