    Which parks are best for 12/25 & 12/31? We will be at the parks for 10 days so riding rides are not a big issue. Traveling with boys 4,7 & 13. I'm more looking for the ultimate holiday experience.


    There are two ways to look at that. The Magic Kingdom is the best park, based on the holiday ambiance. However, that park will be filled to capacity both days. And when I say "filled to capacity" I mean it. The park will typically fill up to a point where they will not be able to let more people in, regardless of their having a ticket or being a Disney resort guest. 

    That means you have to get there early, staying all day. If you leave, you may never get back in.

    For my money I go for the Animal Kingdom first, then Epcot. Animal Kingdom seems to draw a smaller crowd.

    On the 25th you might like Epcot for the international holiday experiences of the World Showcase.

    So really your call. If you can brave the insane crowds, and can arrive early and stay all day, then try the Magic Kingdom. If you are more about minimizing the crowd issue, and maybe getting some international flair, try Epcot or the Animal Kingdom.

    I am glad to answer any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
