    Planning our first trip to Disney, looking at places to stay inside & outside the park, coming the week 12/15-12/20, 3 adults, 2 tweens & 4 yr old boy, no holiday hrs on site? What are the major things that we do not want to miss? Is that a crowd

    Hi Sherry!

    First timer! Congrats! These are all great questions! To start, I would recommend that you visit the Disney Resorts page so that you can compare and price the resorts. I personally recommend Disney's Art of Animation Resort (particularly the Cars Suite) as they sleep 6 people comfortably and is one of the newest and cutest resorts! As for the holiday hours, these have not yet been released for the days you will be visiting. Currently, you can find park hours listed through November 26. I would recommend that you continue to check back as these should be released soon. As for the must sees, there is so much to do and experience that I would not have enough space to respond, but I can point you in the right direction. I would recommend that you visit the Activities page where you can explore different attractions, dining experiences, and special events at the click of your mouse! As for the crowds, December is a popular month, especially due to the holiday decorations. The days you will be visiting can have large crowds as many start their holiday vacations early.

    Hope this helps! If I can assist you with any other planning question, please feel free to send them my way!

    Thank you for sending your questions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Happy Planning!
