    Thanks for all the great advice and help in planning. When exactly does the holiday crowd usually begin? We are planning to go December 12th thru 18th we hope the parks are not too busy as this is before most winter breaks. Do you think we were wrong?

    Leonard, it is impossible to predict the crowds at Walt Disney World but from past numbers and experiences you should still be before the main surge of people coming for the holidays!  December used to be a very quiet month but Disney has added so many great things for the holidays that it has become more popular.

    I still believe it is a great month for a visit between the lower crowds and the cooler weather.  I think you have chosen a perfect time for a Disney trip and should experience great Disney magic during your stay!
