Hi! We are a family of 5 tentatively planning our first trip to Disney together - kids would be ages 7, 9, and 11 when we traveled. (Husband and I have been there but not for many years!) Due to our schedules our options are a little limited, but the first week of 2020 is wide open and I was thinking it would be a lot of fun to surprise the kids at Christmas and travel during a week we usually don’t have much going on. I know it’s a busy time at the parks. I’ve read some posts on a Facebook group today reporting this past week was insane at Disney and now I’m getting nervous. Will we regret traveling the first week of next year? Pros for me are the weather (we live in the mountains and do not like extreme heat- we’d all be fine if we needed coats!), the time we all have off that week, starting the year doing something magical together - and the fact that the parks would still be decorated when we arrived is kind of fun. But - give it to me straight? Too crazy with three kids .... or doable with patience and planning?
