I thought the crowds were fine. As you can tell by the report didn't wait more than 20 minutes for many rides (TSM, Jungle Cruise and Soarin that I can recall). Empty? no, but definitely doable. We did everything we wanted to do in the time we had and we were in no way 'park commandos'. That to me is sign of a sucessful trip :P
Gotta do TGM or UG and have a plan. I saw lines and crowds build during the day and would have been very disappointed in the waits if I didn't follow 'the plan'. Hitting fantasyland first thing paid off - things we practically walked onto between 9-10 am had 20-40 minutes at 11am. Look at the crowd on Main Street on Saturday as well left at 11am and Frontierland around noon was packed. However, at EMH at Epcot and AK were rather light.

Bless you and your family!

Sounds like you had a beautiful trip with your son!! Thanks for posting the report I enjoyed it and loved the pics.

How do you get a twilight ticket for Disney Quest? I can't seem to find any info.

Thanks!

Thanks for reading!

I think the twilight pass for DisneyQuest was a compensation because I had to wait almost 30minutes for the computers to come back up to buy tickets. Don't know if it's a regular thing or not. I was pleasantly surprised.
