    1 Cont.: How crowded would Dec8-16 really be? 2. I have a plan based on Extended Magical Hours, special events, and others for the park I would visit each day; however I would love your famous week planning answer for me. Thank you so much!


    Thanks for the follow-up questions!

    So to your first question, on a scale from 1 to 5 (with 5 being fully crowded) that time frame will have crowds around a 2. So really fairly light, but with a good park buzz.

    As to week planning, thanks for the compliments! Here is what I would do, assuming no parks on arrival and departure days.

    • December 8 - Arrival Day
    • December 9 - Magic Kingdom
    • December 10 - Hollywood Studios
    • December 11 - Epcot
    • December 12 - Animal Kingdom
    • December 13 - Magic Kingdom
    • December 14 - Epcot
    • December 15 - Hollywood Studios
    • December 16 - Departure Day
    I have your park days spread out pretty evenly, but if you have a party with several smaller children you might consider swapping your Epcot day on the 11th for another Magic Kingdom day. I tried to get you as many Extra Magic Hours as I could, though you should not feel the need to use each and every one.

    FYI, if you have park hoppers, and would want me to re-plan for that, just write me back!

    Have a magical vacation!
