Planning a December trip question.

Im trying to plan a December 15-21 trip to WDW. I havent been to Disney in 20 years. I was wondering if anyone can tell how crowded it will be during those dates? And any other tips you can share for those dates will be appreciated. Thanks

That is the week before it starts to get really crazy. Plan well, and you'll do fine. Plus, you are there for the Christmas season, so there is a lot to do!

Expect crowds to grow by the day. I have been the 16-20th. By the end, it was quite crowded. Arrive at rope drop and utilize FP.

That's when we are going this year! My plan is to ride all the big stuff and stuff my daughter was to short for last time for the first 4 days and then the last few are for repeats, minor rides & shopping. Just make sure you make it over to the Osbourne Family Lights in Hollywood Studios. It is spectacular!!!!!

I would check out the crowd calendar that Dan posted.

Also, come visit us on the December thread. There is a lot of information in the thread, especially post #2.

That week honestly isnt too bad, although near the end of it I could see it getting super busy with ppl pulling kids out of the last few days of school, and the expansion being open! However, we went last year the 14-17th and did all 4 parks and a MVMCP no problems

With the FE open, all bets on earlier years are off. Personally, I think it'll be crazy packed, like Christmas/Spring Break, but I hope for OP's sake it isn't.
