We are going to Magic Kingdom the first week of December. I was looking at the calendar and the days I want to go are having Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party those days and closing at 7pm. One of those days will have early magic hours and open at 8am instead of 9am. We will not be on property so cannot use that. I am wanting to know if these short days are normally busy and crowded or less since they have the party that night. Also, is the day with the extended morning hours going to be more crowded than the one without? Just trying to decide on a day so I can book a character meal. Thanks in advance for any help.
