    A family of 6 will arrive on Dec. 22nd 2012 and we will stay off the property. Which parks we should go first on 23rd, 24th or 25th. - crowd-wise and try avoid long lines for rides? Will it be easier if I park at Epcot and take monrail to Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Filomena!

    Walt Disney World will be very crowded on those days.  According to the independent website, the website for the research team behind the tour book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World", you should visit Animal Kingdom on the 23rd, Epcot or Hollywood Studios on the 24th, and the Magic Kingdom on the 25th.  However, keep in mind that all of the parks will be crowded for Christmas and there is a good chance one or two of them will close due to capacity.

    I don't think it would be easier to park at Epcot and then to take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom.  I suggest just parking at the Transportation and Ticket Center as usual, but definitely get there early!  I suggest showing up at least 60 minutes before the posted official park opening time.

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