    My entire family (17 of us) will be going to Disney World January 4-11, 2012. I was wondering how the weather usually is and also about the crowds? Also do you have any helpful tips for a large group of our size with small children? Thank You

    Hi Jamie,

    How fun such a big group going together, you all will have a blast!!

    The weather is cooler in January.  The average temps range from low 50's to high 60's.  Check the long range forecast before you leave so you can have a better idea of what to expect for weather.  No matter what, it will be better than what you experience in Ohio or what I have in Canada-no snow!!!
    The crowds are really good when you will be there!   It does get busier on the weekends.

    With a large group, organizing is the key. You can all wear a custom family shirt which is fun and then you are easily identifiable to your group. Make sure that everyone partner's up or stays with their assigned group.  If you split up, have a specific meeting time and place. It is always helpful to have your cell phones so you can stay in touch with each other or make other plans and let the group know. 

    Make sure you book your dining ahead of time so that your group can be accommodated.

    You will have such a fun time with your family.

    Wishing you a very magical vacation!!
