    My family is planning on doing a vacation soon. We were thinking about coming Dec 17-23. I know Christmas week is very busy but what about the week before Christmas? Last time we come to WDW, it was so busy that we didnt get to do everything we wanted.

    What I've found, Brooke, is that Disney's room rates for the various "travel seasons" of the year offer great insight as to when the parks will be most crowded.  The fact that holiday room rates don't go into effect until December 23rd in 2011 bodes well for crowd levels during your travel dates.  Another perk is that the holiday decorations and special events should be in full swing during your vacation so you'll likely have the best of both worlds (as a certain Disney star likes to say).  Great news, right?

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
