    We love visiting WDW the first week of Dec because of the low crowds and cooler temp but this past Dec was COLD. Next year we are looking at Jan 30-Feb 6. How will the crowds and weather compare to the first week of Dec? Would like to do a water park. Thax

    Hi Karen!

         That first week of December is sooo magical!  I've been there during that week two different times - once in shorts and the other with a heavy coat!  Both times, the crowds were so wonderfully light and the Holiday spirit was everywhere.  However, the end of January and the beginning of February actually boast some of the LEAST crowded days of the year!  The Holiday decorations have been taken down by this point, but the crowds are virtually nonexistent.  This year, you should expect to see crowd levels of 1 or 2 out of 10 at the beginning of your vacation with a slight increase up to 5 out of 10 near the end.  Weather can be very chilly, if not downright freezing at this time and the waterparks are often closed for refurbishment during the colder months.  There are many benefits to both time frames - you honestly can't go wrong!

    Much pixie dust,
