    My family will be visiting WDW 1/8-1/14 to watch my Father-in-law run the marathon and celebrate in-laws 40th wedding anniversary. How are the crowds during that time of year? Where is the best place to get the best view of Wishes?

    Wow, so much to celebrate!

    You will get a moderate influx of guests for the marathon itself, but other than that, mid-January is blissfully moderate in terms of crowds. This is a good time to visit if you want to beat the crush.

    As for Wishes viewing spots ... Moms Panelist Bret recently put me onto a cool new addition to an old favorite Disney information fan site. Go to the website You'll find here a page called Walt Disney World Satellite Maps by Robo. For "category," choose "fireworks" and for "sub-catergory" choose "Magic Kingdom." Click on the photos that says "Magic Kingdom Fireworks Viewing Areas." This will show you exactly where you want to be.

    Happy viewing!
