We want to see the Christmas decorations at Disney World
Hello…my family and I have been to Walt Disney World in September for the past 3 years and love the low crowds and free dining! This year we want to see Christmas decorations at Disney World for the first time.
We are able to travel Wednesday to Tuesday. Do you suggest 11/30 to 12/6 or 12/7 to 12/13? Looking for lowest crowds and possibility of free dining! I know both weeks overlap pop Warner and the parade taping is Saturday 12/4. Does the taping usually just effect Magic Kingdom that day (and maybe Sunday if rain)?
Thanks in advance!

Dad’s I’d go early Answer
I love the Christmas decorations at Disney World. It’s my favorite time of the year. In fact just writing about it makes me want to sing. “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”(Dad sound just like good old Andy.)
If it were me, I’d go November 30 to December 6. Why? You get the most time before the kiddos arrive. The teams will start arriving Sunday or so which gives you 4 days before they arrive. They don’t really get into the parks until Monday night.
It really doesn’t matter too much. If you check the predicted crowd levels at Touringplans.com, you’ll see there real compatible.
Now about the Parade taping. It only effects the Magic Kingdom, and really only effects the areas where the taping is happening. It can make getting around in the park difficult, but until the taping is over for the day, it doesn’t impact the length of lines at the rides.
