    We are planning to attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party. I've read the best week to go is the first week of December but I also saw that is the week of Pop Warner. How will the crowd at the resorts and park be at that time?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jonni!

    I hope you are ready for a holly, jolly holiday visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. I absolutely love Disney during Christmas. The decorations at the theme parks and resorts, seasonal treats to be discovered and enjoyed, to the MERRY-fic special events, it really is the most wonderful time of the year at the most magical place on earth!

    Jonni, I’ve visited during the dates you are planning on attending and I do agree that it’s a great time to go! Holiday crowds tend to ramp up as Christmas approaches, so I’ve found early December is a great time to enjoy the magic. I wouldn’t worry too much about special events taking place during your visit. More often than not there are special activities happening at the resort. But if you want some help picking a date, I would check with an online crowd calendar for some guidance. Crowd predictions are not a perfect science, but these sites study historical trends and make sure to be in the know about any special activities happening, so they can be fairly accurate. My personal favorite is the Undercover Tourist Crowd Calendar.

    I hope this helps answer your question and aide in your magical planning. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to come back to see us.

    See ya real soon!
