We are going to Disney in October and were planning to go the first week and visit the parks during the week. We do not plan to attend the halloween parties and I read that there are no other fireworks during the week so now I am considering the second week and going to the park on Columbus day for the longer hours & fireworks. How crowded are the parks on Columbus Day? Gay Days are Oct 5-7 and Columbus Day is Oct 8th....will gay days effect the parks on Columbus Day? Are the fireworks worth putting up with the crowds? Do most people have this day off in Cali? Do a lot of APs come this day? I am considering this mainly for my 4yr old who loves fireworks and doesnt know Disney without them! TIA!!!
