    Hi Leslie!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    You are going to Walt Disney World during what is usually a crowded time, especially as you get close to Christmas.  I suggest visiting the independent website  That's the website for the research team behind the tour book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".  They are famous in the Disney fan community for producing a crowd calendar that predicts the crowd levels in the various parks on specific days.  They make a recommendation on which parks to visit on which day and which parks to avoid.  That will help you set a framework for your visit.  Their recommendations are based on a lot of math and years of data collection.  As an engineer, I'm a huge fan of their work.

    On that site, you will also find touring plans, which are step by step instructions on visiting the parks such that you can minimize your wait in line.  Like their crowd calendar, their touring plans are based on a lot of research and high power mathematics.  Definitely check them out, especially since you are going during a busy time of the year.

    I hope this helps!   Write back if you have any more questions!
