Advice Needed - Disney Crowds Christmas Week
I am planning a family trip to Disney from December 20 - 25. My daughters are 15, 14, and 11. I know that this is a very busy time to visit. I have gone to Disney World numerous times, but never during Christmas week. The only reason I booked this time frame is because I don't have to miss work, the kids won't be missing school, and the Disney Dining Plan is free as part of a promotion (which really surprised me considering this is a peak time and Disney never offers promotions during the holidays).
I have already been forewarned to avoid going to the Magic Kingdom on Christmas day. My question is, would it be less crowded to visit Magic Kingdom on Sunday December 21st or on Christmas Eve? Sunday has EMH both in the morning and at night. Has anyone ever been to Magic Kingdom the Sunday before Christmas or on Christmas Eve? If so, what was your experience and do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you in advance for your time and help!

I would say to go the Sunday before Christmas. Last year, I went Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and both days were really busy. On Christmas Eve we went about an hour or 2 after RD and it wasn't so bad, but as the day went on, it did get pretty busy so we ended up going to Epcot.

In 2011 we were there 12/20 - 12/28 and I would absolutely recommend the 21st over the 24th. We did not notice a huge jump in crowds until the 24th (then it got insane).
We went to MK early on Christmas morning just to see the parade and say that we were there on Christmas but after that we left.
