    Heather Asked

    We are planing our first trip to WDW, is the first week of December a good time to go? Do we need car seats for our kids on the shuttle from the airport or any other shuttles? Thank you so much.

    Heather, mark the first week of December "Walt Disney World vacation" on your calendar since this is an excellent week to visit Mickey.

    In early December, the holidays are in full swing at WDW, but the crowds are not. The resorts and parks are decked out in beautiful, well themed, festive decor and several Christmas celebrations are held. Hundreds of Christmas trees, thousands of poinsettias, and millions of lights create a magical holiday atmosphere. Plus the weather tends to be mild and sunny, but pack a light jacket and pants for possible cooler evenings and mornings.

    Consider purchasing tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party in the Magic Kingdom. Held only on certain evenings during the holiday season, this event offers snow falling on Main Street, U.S.A., cookies and hot chocolate, characters attired in their holiday finery, and most popular rides are open. Another special holiday event is Epcot's Candlelight Processional. A spectacular retelling of the nativity story with an orchestra, a choir of hundreds, and a celebrity narrator, this event is included in your admission to the park.

    No need to lug along a car seat. Child seats are not required on Disney's Magical Express or on the WDW bus system.

    Planning a first trip to WDW can be a bit overwhelming. Please contact me again if you have any questions about resorts, tickets, restaurants, rides, or any other aspect. I would love to help you plan a magical vacation for your family.
