    We will be going to WDW for the first time during Thanksgiving. I assume the crowds will be larger and with four children ages 7 month-6 years, is there any advice on how to navigate around the parks?

    Visiting Walt Disney World over Thanksgiving will be so much fun. The parks will have some great decorations and it's truly a magical time. With children those ages I would focus on getting to the parks early and choosing family type rides. With the early arrival you can make sure to go on all the attractions you must see, like 'it's a small world', the classic Jungle Cruise and Peter Pan's Flight. These rides can get somewhat crowded so arriving early can ensure riding these family classics. Another reason to arrive early is to be able to get some fun in before nap time for the little ones. I would also look for more family rides where the whole gang can experience the magic. Whether it be Pirates of the Caribbean, Dumbo the Flying Elephant or a cruise on the Rivers of America on the Liberty Square Riverboat, these are all great memory makes that the entire group will enjoy. I hope this helps make your experience more magical.
