    My family is thinking about coming to Disney in either the first week in October or the week of Thanksgiving. Which week do you think would be less crowded? Also Is the Art of Animation or All Star Movies Resort better for a 3 year old?

    Hi Kayla!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! 

    In regards to crowds, the first week in October will be far less crowded than the week of Thanksgiving. October is a great time of year to visit because the crowds are low and the weather is wonderful! You can also enjoy Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! This is a separately ticketed event that is a must do at Magic Kingdom. You will enjoy a special Halloween fireworks show, Boo to you parade and trick or treating. 

    Both Art of Animation and All Star Movies Resorts are wonderful. I've stayed at both of them and your 3-year old would love either one. To help you decide, consider what characters your 3-year old likes. If Toy Story, 101 Dalmatians and Mickey are favorites, consider All Star Movies. If Little Mermaid and Nemo are favorites, consider Art of Animation.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
