    Planning our trip to Disney World for the dates of Dec 27th to Jan 2nd. We have a 1 day pass and the only day we can not go to the park is on the 29th. I know it is difficult to predict crowds but what would be the best/ 2nd best day to visit?

    Hi Marlene,

    You'll be visiting during a very popular time of year and crowds will pretty much be similar throughout your visit. I would choose which day to visit a park based on what FastPass+ selections you're able to secure. Play around with and see what FastPass+ selection options come up for you on each of your vacation dates and go from there. You'll want to take advantage of FastPass+ as much as  possible during your visit. You also may want to consider visiting at park other than Magic Kingdom Park, as that is typically the busiest of the four theme parks. I will say, New Year's Eve is the one day I would probably avoid the parks. The crowds tend to swell, especially as it gets close to midnight.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions, Marlene.

    Have a magical day,
