Around the Disney World in Less than a Month

Last-minute vacation madness: my sister in DC just asked me to plan a vacation to Disney World for my 6-year-old niece during this year's winter holidays. She'd like 3-5 days, either before or after Christmas. Today is already December 8. Is this perfectly doable, or difficult/expensive but worth it, or not recommended? If we go ahead at this late date, what can we do to get the most out of the trip? [more inside]

Recommend Cold, Awesome Places for a Vacation

I'm going to be starting a little sabbatical from work around Thanksgiving time, and we want to take a vacation trip to kick it off. It'll be approaching winter, and I've always been fascinated by the idea of cold northern oceanfront places with fantastic storms and windswept beaches. Something like the setting of The Ghost Writer, beautiful and austere landscape, cozy house right on the water. Can anyone recommend a town or place to look, maybe pacific northwest or new england? My experience with VRBO-style rentals in California has been good, and dog-friendly would be a big plus.

Italy when no one is there?
