    Tradtionally, what is the least crowded park on Christmas Day? Visiting Xmas week with our 3 teenagers. We have been that week before, but always arrived the day after Christmas?

    Hi, Michele!  My first recommendation is to avoid the Magic Kingdom.  That is the park that historically is the busiest on Christmas day, sometimes filling to capacity by late morning. 

    I've had good luck with Disney's Animal Kingdom and EPCOT.  EPCOT just always seems to me the best park to be in when things are busy.  Because it's so spread out, I never feel the effect of the crowds.

    Your best plan of attack is to arrive as early as you can at the park you plan to spend the day enjoying.  Make sure you have dining reservations for any dining experiences you want to have to avoid disappointment. 

    Have a wonderful vacation, and wave if you see me!  I'll be braving the crowds during the Christmas holidays right along with you!
