    Hi y'all !!!  I am writing from Texas!! My husband, son and I will be taking our first Disney Cruise the end of this year, but want to visit WDW three days before New Years Eve. How bad are the crowds likely to be? Thank you kindly

    Ahoy There Jessica,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on your very first Disney Cruise; you must be so excited! Disney Cruises are amazing and if you have any questions about your Cruise before setting sail be sure to stop back by and ask our Disney Moms Panel Disney Cruise Line Specialists. They'll give you their best tips and advice that are guaranteed to add extra pixie dust to your voyage! 

    The crowd level during the week between the Christmas holiday and New Year's Eve is extremely high. If you are planning to visit during this time then I suggest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel so that you can take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours that are offered to Guests of Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. I also recommend arriving at the Theme Parks as early as possible ( prior to Park opening if you can) so that you can experience as many Attractions as possible before the Parks become too congested. Although the Theme Parks are very crowded at this time of year it is still a great time to visit. All of the Parks and Resorts are festively decorated and overflowing with the spirit of the holiday season; it's truly a magical sight to behold! 

    Wishing You Many Magical Memories,
