    My son and I will be at WDW 11-25 thru 12-2. We have park hopper and water park package. We arrive at DW noon on the 25th. What you would suggest for that first day and the days to follow given the holiday crowd?

    Hey Sara!  What a great time of year to be headed to WDW.
    If you are not wanting to get in the crowds of a park on your first day, why not start your vacation off with a fun trip to Downtown Disney.  There are great shops, wonderful restaurants and it is definitely a place to really get you going.  However, if you arrive on the 25th and hear the parks aren't too terribly bad ... then I always recommend a trip to the MK to get the vacation rolling.  I start each and every WDW vacation with a stroll down Main Street at the MK.
    As far as the rest of the days, that is a hard one to call.  You can count on those parks with EMH's probably being more crowded, especially for the evening EMH's.  The great thing is you have the hopper option, so if crowds become unbearable at one park, chances are there is another park that is not too bad.  So take that ticket and check out some place new.  Also definitely take advantage of the fast pass system, this is always a great way to knock out the most popular attractions without wasting a lot of time standing in line.
