I was there on Christmas Day a couple years ago and ran out of the park screaming. It was beyond crowded........but I don't know if to would be more crowded than the other parks.

I've gone to HS the last few years on Christmas Eve to see the lights and I have never found the crowds to be too bad. Going again tomorrow night. Now Christmas Day is a whole different beast!

"One Of the Most Wonderful Times Of The Year"
Go with a warm Santa Mickey hat and a warm heart and you shall enjoy yourself immensely!
We went a few years ago and yes it was VERY crowded but we

shared a cup of hot chocolate at the writers shop
watched the Osborne lights/listen to beautiful music and
shared a special time with family that will always hold beautiful memories.

Have a wonderful Magic time.
Hugs Mel

Crowded, but manageable. We did the Candlelight Processional at Epcot last year on Christmas Eve. Epcot was shoulder to shoulder! After the CP, we headed over to DHS and found it much more enjoyable.

Went last night as planned and it was empty! Got there around 8pm, grabbed a coffee with Baileys and headed for the lights. Streets were not crowded at all. Even sat on an empty bench for a bit to watch!

We left after F! (first show). It was packed getting out of there, but after Hollywood and Vine, it was pretty clear. Glad we had the Dining Package. That was awesome!

I'm wondering the same thing about tonight, Christmas Day. Hoping for Osborne Lights, a late F!, hopefully a low standby wait at RnR.

We did the CP Christmas Eve last year, too. I didn't think it was that crowded (given the time of year). Which performance did you go to? Maybe we saw you there
