We are visiting family and I am considering a short trip to Disney World with our 2 and 8 year olds. I understand that this is the busiest time of the year so I'd like some advise on avoiding the crowds at their peaks.
Would the decorations be up after Christmas? what about after New Year? Are the parks open on Christmas and New Year day? Is there any time during given period that the pace is a bit slower?
Should we be looking at other parks to avoid the crowds? Perhaps SeaWorld? I don't know what appeal to a 2 year old, she is nuts about Mickey. But then again maybe going to Disney Downtown would provide the same type of Mickey fix :)
We have another period where we will be in Florida from mid August to early September, but I think it would just be too hot for a Disney trip.
Any advise would be much appreciated!
