    Planning restaurants to book tomorrow for our trip in December. Hoping you can help by letting me know what crowds will be like at the different parks, December 21-26, so I can plan accordingly. Thanks for your help!!

    Hi there, Michelle!

    The weeks right before and right after Christmas are very popular at Walt Disney World. With so many families vacationing together at that time of the year, the World is a natural destination for family fun at the holidays.

    While I can't really predict the individual crowd levels, I would point you toward some third-party sites that use historical data to make exactly the kind of predictions you're looking for.

    My favorite is - they have bee around for a while, and have refined their methods of data collection and analysis to make pretty precise estimates of crowd levels. That might help you better develop your own plan of attack for visiting each of the Parks.

    But do be advised that it will be busy. Fortunately, there's so much to do and see that you're sure to enjoy every moment of your visit.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
    -Deborah B.
