    5 adults, 4 kids arriving Oct 16th. Columbus Day and Canadian Thanksgiving are the 14th. Do you think the parks will be unusually crowded by Thursday and Friday of that week?Thanks for your help!

    Hi Janet!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Historically speaking, that is generally a low to medium crowd time of the year.  I personally love it.  It is generally less hot and humid than the summer time and there are two fabulous events going on during that time of the year:  Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.  Both are great so definitely consider going.  The basic Food and Wine Festival is included in your park admission, but the Halloween Party requires an extra special ticket.

    Enjoy planning your magical Disney vacation, and please write back with more questions!
