    Would Dec. 17-22 be a good time to visit Disney World, as far as crowds would concern? Would it be high, medium, or low crowds during this time?

    Hi Robin! The first answer that pops in my head is that any time is a great time to visit Disney World! Now, certain times of year are definitely busier than others, and the Christmas holiday season is most definitely one of those times. The closer you get to Christmas Day, the busier you can expect it to be. I would anticipate crowd levels to be lower for the first few days, and then picking up closer to the end of your vacation. 

    I will say I am often surprised by crowd levels. There are times when I expected it to be busy and it wasn't, and others when I thought parks would be quiet and they were packed. To me, the key is to best manage your time. If possible, get to the parks early. I'm always amazed how much we get done in the first few hours. Be sure to plan ahead. Choosing your FastPass+ selections in advance will save you so much time!

    I hope this helps with your planning Robin! Write back with any other questions as you plan your Disney vacation!
