    Anna, Saw that you mentioned wait times of around 60-90 minutes on major attractions during xmas season. Are these typical. Our trip in Aug had as long/longer waits! I have always been hesitant aobut going at xmas?? plannniing 12/23-12/27 EXCITED!!!!

    Hi, Heather!  We have seen longer waits at Christmas time on some of the major rides, but I think you can expect wait times of at least 60-90 minutes for most of the rides and attractions the week between Christmas and New Year's.  It is one of the best times to go, so you can enjoy all of the holiday festivities!

    The thing that helps the most during Christmas week is the Fast Passes!  Use them!  Take advantage of off peak times for things too - dine early or later than normal; and if you can skip a parade, try hitting some of the busier rides during the parade.

    We'll be visiting then as well, so maybe we'll bump into each other while we wait for a ride!

    Have a great vacation!
