    We are planning our first vacation to WDW with our daughters who will be 6 and 4. We are planning 12-13 thru 12-17 what can we expect for crowd levels?


    That is a great age to take the girls! Mine are now 5 and 7, so we are getting the same experiences you are.

    You can expect some very nice crowd levels. They should be anywhere from fairly light to moderate most days, since schools throughout the country should still be in session. This means you get the plus of all the holiday decor, paired with shorter wait times at attractions and restaurants! Do know, however, that levels will be higher on the weekend days of your stay. 

    While they have not announced dates yet for the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, make sure you plan around those. Since they will cause the Magic Kingdom to be closed to just those with the extra event tickets, you want to be sure to have evening plans elsewhere on those evenings. Unless of course you are attending!

    I would love to help with any follow-up questions! Just ask for me by name in your next questions and I will let you know of some of the things we did with our girls to have fun!

    Have a magical vacation!
