    Please give me suggestions on which parks to visit first, my dates to visit parks are 12/31/12 to 1/5/13, and have 5 day pass(no hopper), thanks a lot in advance. Just found out the panel can't believe what I was missing!!

    Hi, Kavita!

    We're so glad you found us here on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel, too! :-)

    Now, regarding your magical trip, that's just around the corner, I always check out the fantastic (unofficial) crowd-predicting website before mapping out my schedules. While you'll be in the parks during a very popular holiday, it's still possible to try to avoid the most crowded of the four theme parks by planning carefully.

    As such, follow this plan, if it works for you:

    12/31: Animal Kingdom (crowd level 9.1 out of 10; all others are 10)
    1/1: Magic Kingdom (9.2 out of 10)
    1/2: Disney's Hollywood Studios (8.4 out of 10)
    1/3: Epcot (4 out of 10)
    1/4: Any park for a second visit (MK is predicted to be the most crowded of the four parks. However, at 7.5, that's still LESS crowded than on 1/1. Epcot is a best bet at 4.0, with HS at 4.9 and AK at 5.9)

    If you've never been to Walt Disney World during that particular week or during the holiday season, be sure to send more questions, as this is truly the most magical time of the year in WDW; I'd love to help point in the right direction at each and every park. We all love to help!

    Have a wonderful trip!
