    We are planning our next DW trip for Nov/Dec of 15'. What is the absolute BEST week to visit while all the xmas festivities/decor/lights/MVMCP are going on and please base your answer solely on the crowd level. I am flexible and like lowest crowd possible!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer! I am so glad to see you are planning another vacation to the most magical place on Earth. We must be kindred spirits as I also enjoy visiting Walt Disney World during the holiday season yet I like to be there during the lowest crowd times possible.

    In my experience, the best weeks to visit Disney during the holidays are the week before Thanksgiving and the two weeks after. For example, next year those weeks would be November 14-20, November 30 - December 6 and December 7-15. Typical Thanksgiving crowds begin to arrive the Saturday before Thanksgiving and depart on the Sunday after. If you would like to visit closer to Christmas, the week before, which would be December 12-18 next year, should also be a good week to visit.

    The best part about visiting any of these four weeks is that all the holiday decorations are up and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and the other holiday shows and events are in full swing.

    As your trip gets closer to your trips dates I suggest consulting the crowd calendars on They calculate historical crowd levels, special events and park hours to come up with their park touring recommendation.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more planning questions please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
