Hi all!! Seems like there have been a lot of posts about horrendous crowds this month. My family is going this December for our first Holiday trip. We went over Thanksgiving many many years ago, but as I recall it was pre-Christmas glam and deco. I am also very excited about a trip I am planning with a friend for next October as we have never been in the fall either. DD will be almost 6, as well as my friend's oldest. She also has another DD who will be almost 2 and a half (first trip for this kiddo.) She is also expecting to bring her DF who isn't big on crowds, even though he's a really big guy (6'7") . But a lot of people seem to be posting about how the crowds have pretty much ruined their trips. Is Oct normally this bad? We're planning to go mid-Oct around the 17th, getting there late night on a Wed and leaving Sun. Should we shoot for end of Sept to avoid the madness?? Do you think Dec is going to be as bad as this Oct has been?
