    I booked my 1st WDW trip with my hubby and 2 kids(6F &4M) We arrive 5/16 PM & leave 5/21 AM.I am now reading Stars Wars 1st weekend might bring a huge crowd. Doing on HS 5/17 EP 5/18 AK 5/19 MK 5/20. Should I change my dates due to higher crowd

    Welcome to the Mom's Panel, Andrea! We're glad you're hEAR! How exciting that you are planning your first trip to Walt Disney World! If you are anything like me, you'll experience that Disney Magic and be hooked! Star Wars Weekends are held at Disney's Hollywood Studios on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. I think since you are planning to attend Hollywood Studios on a Thursday, that you will be fine. I think the parks will become more crowded around Memorial Day when the schools are starting to let out for summer. I have attended during the dates that you are planning and found the parks to be quite pleasant. Although it is always impossible to precisely predict what the crowd levels will be, I do think you should be okay if you avoid Hollywood Studios during the weekend. I hope this information helps! Please write back if you have any other questions that I can assist you with! I would love to help you plan a Magical "First" Walt Disney World Vacation!
    Happy Planning,
