    Hi! I am coming to DW December 1-7th 2013. 1st I am worried that Thanksgiving crowds will still be lingering? Do you think so? #2 do you know what restaurants will have the best decor? 3rd the MVMCP, since it's a sep ticket does it count as a base tic day?

    Hello, Melissa,

    I think it is likely that your trip will overlap the Thanksgiving crowd at first, but then those guests will be heading home by the first of the week. Typically, the first week of week of December is a good time to visit to avoid crowds.

    We have been fortunate to celebrate a handful of Christmas holidays at Walt Disney World. Truly, it is transformed throughout the entire resort in its holiday finest. When I think of restaurants, I'm drawn to those in the deluxe resorts because of the entire experience of first enjoying the holiday decorations then visiting the restaurant. The Grand Floridian, the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and the Wilderness Lodge are stunning and worth visiting for a meal at any of their restaurants.

    Finally, when visiting Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, it is a separate ticket that does not affect your Magic Your Way tickets. 

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if we can help again.
