    Hello, Sheryl!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    I am thrilled to hear about your upcoming Walt Disney World visit!  You and your family are about to experience what the MAGIC is all about, so let's get started.

    With all my WDW visits, I have noticed a trend when it comes to crowd levels.  Some parks are busier than others on certain days of the week.  Of course, you'll want to stay away from a park that is booming with crowd.  Now although you are visiting during a most busy time of year, you can still find some sense of calmness when it comes to crowds.  Please read a response I shared with a guest concerning CROWD TRENDS for certain days of the week.  Hopefully, this will help you map out a plan as to which park to visit for each day of your visit.  It has been most useful for all of my visits.  There will still be crowds due to the fact that you are visiting during the summer months, but this could be a starting point.

    Make sure to take advantage of Disney's FASTPASS service.  With this service you are given a time to come back to participating attractions with little or no wait time.  It really saves on time with many popular attractions.  There is no extra fee with utilizing this service, so make sure you use it.  You'll be glad you did!

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
