    My family and I have been many times to WDW but never around Christmas time. We will be there from 12/22-12/27, we plan to go to all 4 parks. I am having a hard time deciding in which order (by day) to se the parks?

    Avoid the Magic Kingdom on Christmas Day. Steer away from the parks with Extra Magic Hours.

    Know that it will be crowded. This is the busiest time of year at WDW. However, it's also magical, festive and fun.

    If I were touring during the holiday week, I would schedule my family to tour using this plan:

    Dec. 22 Epcot (the 3 other parks have Extra Magic Hours so avoid them)
    Dec. 23 Hollywood Studios (Epcot and MK have EMH and AK can be done another day)
    Dec. 24 Magic Kingdom (the crowds will be waiting to go here tomorrow)
    Dec. 25 Animal Kingdom (crowds will go to the parks with EMH and/or evening entertainment)
    Dec. 26 Magic Kingdom until later in day when crowds arrive for EMH
    Dec. 27 Hollywood Studios, then Epcot

    I have gone over this plan and this is truly how I would tour the parks for this holiday season. Wishing you a merry time with Mickey!
