    Planning a visit with a family of 9, including a 2, 4, & 7 year old Jan 25-28. It will be the first trip for the 4 & 7 yr olds (girls). What should the crowds be like then, and are there any special events that might affect our trip while we are th

    Hi Carissa,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  Visiting Walt Disney World with a larger group such as you are can be so much fun, and how exciting that it will be the first time for your girls!

    The dates that you are visiting should have low to moderate crowds.  Since you are not visiting over any type of school holiday, this tends to keep crowds lower.  To my knowledge, there are no major special events planned at Walt Disney World during your dates.  When looking for crowd predictions, I like to visit the unofficial website  For a low cost, you can see their crowd predictions for Walt Disney World theme parks for up to a year in advance.  Bear in mind that in January the weather tends to be cooler, with average highs around 71 degrees Fahrenheit.  This should be quite comfortable, just be sure to bring some layers, especially for the evenings when it will likely be chilly.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Carissa.  Have a great time planning your trip, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.  We on the Disney Parks Moms Panel love helping you to plan your magical vacation!
