    Hello Moms and Dads. I have a very important decision to make so i need some advice, we are planning our 2014 trip back to WDW and cant decide either Christmas of Halloween ? My bday is close to halloween, my oldest daughter is close to Christmas...HELP !!

    Hi Kelly!

    This is a great question and a hard one. There is no right answer as it is guest dependent. I can tell you that early December to mid-December is my absolute favorite time to visit Walt Disney World. The parks and resorts are beautifully decorated for the holidays and there are a lot of special activities throughout the parks. My favorite special activities are the Candlelight Processional, the Osborn Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. 

    However, I very much prefer Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party over the Christmas party. It is my favorite special event in Walt Disney World. If you are just coming for a day or two, come for Halloween and do the party. But if you are coming for more than two days, then I recommend the end of the year. Just know that Christmas week itself is one of the most crowded weeks at Walt Disney World. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
