We will be in the parks for the first time EVER!! on January 26 - Feb 2. just ondering if anyone had a guess on how crowded the parks may be, what kind of wait times for the rides and if anyone else would be there at the same time. Don't have a LGMH shirt, but I will be the one with the goofy grin embarrassing my teen DD by constantly doing the happy dance in the park :banana: complete with mouse ears! can't miss me :dance3:

We'll be there from Jan. 27-31. We usually go a week earlier in January but we've never been disapointed at this time of year. Crowd levels are great. No more than 20 minute waits for the most part. :thumbsup2

We will also be there from the 26th to Feb 2nd. We go the same week every year and the crowds are not bad at all........... We are staying at ASMU in a family suite this year. Last year we stayed at Pop Century.

I work for a school district but at the admistrative office so I can go when I want also. When I worked in a school it was hard because I had to pay higher prices and fight the crowds. We cruise also on the off times to save money.

We'll be there 1/26-2/1. We're hoping for low crowds too. We usually go this time of the year and it's never a long wait. We only have to use fast passes for Soarin.

Ha- I hear ya! I am a teacher and am taking Jan 25- Feb 2 to go to Disney- even pulling my kids out of school too:scared1: ! However, there is a long history behind this trip and this is something I don't do often. This is only my second time in 11 years taking time out of actual school days for a vacation. Our district isn't too strict though. We just have to use our 3 personal days and take 2 without pay and the kids' absences are excused as long as you tell them ahead of time and discuss it with administration. So, here's to the countdown!!!:goodvibes

I took my DD for a long weekend at the end of January several years ago(I
think it was Super Bowl weekend), we stayed at POR and I have a picture of
her in the big pool and it was deserted. Nobody else in the picture AT ALL.
Very light crowds. It was the year the castle looked like a birthday cake!:rolleyes:

We have made trips during the last 4 years in January and the crowds have been great. They are so good, in fact, that we are heading to saratoga springs in 15 days. Hope you have fun!

DD and I will be there for a 'Girl's Weekend' the 24 - 28 :goodvibes

I just booked the room about a month ago and really wanted to go in Feb., because we were just there in Nov. I started looking at rooms with AP discount at Feb. 13 and worked my way backwards until I found availability at a value resort. It ended up being Jan. 24th, so I'm hoping that means it'll be relatively uncrowded that weekend!

Wow! Looks like my sis and I will be in good company. We'll be at POP Jan. 26-29th for a sisters weekend as well. Can't wait!! :woohoo:

I was at MK last January and the crowds are not as bad in January and February. Especially for the P&P Parties. The crowds for the Enchanted Adventures parade didn't come close to SpectroMagic's crowds only a few hours before. We're planning on attending the party on the 26th - getting the tickets tomorrow!

We'll also be there from Jan 26th to Feb 1st. First night at Pop and then moving over to Beach Club Villas. Never been during this time period and can't wait! I'll be looking for all you Disers! I might be wearing my:grouphug: fanny pack (I know they look BAD but so darned convenient!) with the lime green MM head plastic luggage tag hanging there to show I'm part of the "In Crowd".
See you there!
