    Hi me and my family is planning a visit for Christmas. We'll be arriving Dec 20 and leaving Dec 29th. I've heard its crowded this time of year, is there anything we can do to cut down on our exposure to these crazy crowds?

    You have chosen a very busy time of the year during which to visit, Myka.  I would be remiss not to tell you, though, that you've also chosen a very festive time; the holiday decorations at Walt Disney World are indeed a sight to behold.  In order to make the most of your vacation (and avoid crowds as best as possible) I would recommend getting an early start.  Crowd levels tend to increase as the day wears on.  Guests who visit the theme parks early (right at opening) typically can enjoy at least a couple of attractions with relatively low waits.  It would also be wise to eat at off-peak hours.  For example, enjoying lunch around 11:00 and dinner at 5:45 is a good idea.  Other than that, just go in prepared to make the best of your trip; don't let the crowds get you down.  You might not be able to enjoy all of the attractions in the parks due to heavier than average crowds, but you can certainly still have a festive trip.  Enjoy!
