    Hi. I am surprising my kids with a visit to Disney for Christmas in Nov. 11-18th 2013. My question is : is this time of the year very busy? My son has ADHD and doesn't do well around crowds and standing in lines.

    Hi Rachel!

    Typically, crowds will not be too bad at that time of year.    I always suggest that you approach park touring with a solid plan.  Being that your son may have difficulty with crowds and lines, I suggest that you get to the parks a half hour before posted opening time.  This will allow you to get in and visit many attractions while much of the "World" still sleeps!  I also recommend that you utilize FastPass in order to alleviate difficult wait times for popular attractions.  Another thing I like to suggest is that you take a mid-afternoon break back at your hotel.  A little downtime at the pool or even watching TV, can help recharge the batteries.  

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation!
