    My family and I are planning to take my children to Disney for the first time in January 2010. We will be arriving on January 10th and staying through the 16th. Should we change our days because of marathon?

    Hey Janet and my answer would be absolutely not.  I personally have never been during the marathon but my brother and his family go every year!  My sister in law is always very proud to report to me that they never wait in line for more than 15 minutes each year during the exact week you are going.  So I honestly think you will be very pleased with the crowds, or the lack thereof, during that week.
    Thanks for the great question, and for coming to the Mom's Panel.  I hope you have a magical WDW trip in January.
