Avoiding Marathon Week?

We just came home from our first Disney vacation and we had a blast -- now it's time to plan our next trip!

We were all set to go back for a short trip in Jan 2014 to celebrate our middle daughter's 5th birthday. I was looking forward to being IN Disney World ON her birthday.

Our plan was to fly out Wednesday 1/8 after school and have Thursday 1/9 (her birthday) as our first park day. We would then fly home Sunday afternoon.

H will only let the girls miss 2 days of school so we can't go earlier in the week -- has to be Wed to Sun. I've started planning and I saw that the week we picked is set to be the Marathon Weekend.

Should we forget about that week and go a week later?

I'm not sure how much the marathon impacts crowds.
