How does our touring plan for December look?
Your December Disney World Crowds page says early December crowds are light.
We have two families with 6, 9, 10 and 12 year old girls. We are opening Animal Kingdom on Sunday, doing Fantasmic on Monday and Mickeys Christmas party on Tuesday.
Since Mon and Tue will be touring into the night we were thinking of just going with the a mid-day arrival and staying until closing.
The rest of the week will be spent at Magic Kingdom and Epcot.
I know the 1st two hours are the best time to tour, but this time of year how bad will lines be Noon to 8:00 pm?
Dad’s Marvelous Answer
George. Congratulations. December is the best time to visit Walt Disney World.
Your touring plan for December will work great unless the Monday and Tuesday you’re talking about are the 7th and 8th. That week is the annual football tournament and cheerleader event at Disney World. Screaming teenagers will be out in force in the evenings.
The real problem you might encounter is with Monday. Fantasmic is currently being shown only on Sundays and Thursdays. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been closing as early as 7:00pm on Mondays. The schedule won’t be posted until sometime in September. Watch Dad’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios page for more information.
I’m not sure you can tour all of the Studios from mid-day until 7:00.
I do agree with a mid-day arrival on Tuesday and then enjoying Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. I’m jealous.
George, you and the girls have fun. December should be a great time to visit.
Dad loves Christmas at Disney World.
