Our plan...doable or too much?? Crowds rated 10s all days

We are going to be at WDW at Christmas..yes I am crazy..lol. We have 6 day park hopper passes. We plan to get to the rope drop at every park when we are going. Is my plan too much for crowds that will be rated 10s?? These are just the things we would really like to do..if we can't..we can't.

Thank you!!!

Even during Christmas if you get to the park at opening you should have no problem accomplishing those items. Do make sure you know the opening times of the park as they do change. I would look at www.easywdw.com or the travel agent calendar link on that website for park hours and info regarding touring.

well, your list is full of the top rated rides at each park, so they will have the longest lines. When they say the parks are a 10 , they really really mean it. Make sure you have a good 'park day' plan, and be aware that rope drop might be as early as 7am (which might be hard if you have kids) and know how to use Fast Pass. Also know that this week you've picked is unlike any other week, crowd wise and even for people who know what they're doing it can be a challenge with waits that are beyond anything normal.

I do have kids but they are 17 and 9 and have no choice but to be getting up early.. And like I said in my post..I already know it will be very very crowded. I asked if my list would be doable..since I already know about the crowds

I think it's doable as long as you use FP as much as possible. Did you correspond your park days with what should be the least busiest park per day? I use touringplans- I think when you're within 30 days, it's free to check their recommendations.

I have been using easywdw for the crowd calendar. Maybe I will double check on touringplans. We plan to use FP as much as we can. Hoping that and getting there early will help. Thank you

If you do RD, you will be able to do most on your list during first few hours. I think you are fine. Just do not stop to smell roses during those first hours, eat breakfast in your room and do extra morning hours if you stay on site.

I think you can accomplish all of it without a problem.

Absolutely, this is doable if you are there at park opening. Even on really really crowded days you can get a lot done and get other FPs during the first 90 minutes after rope drop.

You should strongly consider dining reservations if you don't already have them, so you are not waiting forever to eat.

I am a teacher so I always have to go when it's 9s or 10s. If you are there at rope drop and make great use of fast pass, your list is easily do-able.

At Christmas it is so insane packed crowded later in the day that you will probably be ready to go having finished all your list anyway! I completely second the need for ADRs!
