First off I apologize if this is a long question. That being said we're planning on taking our 2 1/2 year old daughter to Disney in the fall. My husband is a teacher with limited personal time (2 days!) so we are pretty much forced to go around a Holiday just to squeak out an extra day (travel day). We were thinking of going Columbus Day weekend. We would leaved Wednesday after work (10/9) and return Monday (10/14). This would give us all day Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I'm thinking most of our time will be spent at Magic Kingdom since our little one is still young. I was just wondering what can I expect in terms of crowds. I understand it's also the F&W at Epcot so I know that will attract folks. The only other thing I was contemplating was leaving Friday 10/11 and coming back Wednesday 10/16 (taking the other end of the Holiday weekend so that we'd have all day Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Do you think one set of dates is better than the next in terms of crowds? I appreciate the help!
