    What is the best park to visit on Christmas day based on the crowd size?

    Hi Tess, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question! Although Christmas Day is typically one of the busiest days of the year at Walt Disney World Resort, with a bit of planning, I’m sure you’ll be able to have a magical Holiday!

    Based on my experience, the Theme Park that seems to handle large crowds the best is Epcot. Although this is in part due to it’s size (in terms of square footage, it’s the biggest of the 4 Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks), but also because there are so many undiscovered nooks and crannies to explore. Because several of these hidden gems are often overlooked, it’s often possible to get some “breathing room” at Epcot, even during busier times of year. 

    Because the Candlelight Processional and Epcot International Festival of the Holidays have been drawing increasing numbers of people to Epcot to “Celebrate the Season”, I would highly recommend making a reservation for a Candlelight Processional Dining Package, once they’re available. Hearing that beautiful story told with an unbelievable orchestra and choir would be the perfect way to end a Christmas Day at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Have a Magical Day,
