    Trip 11/25-12/1, chosen for low crowds. Dates good on UndTour crowd pred, but parks I've chosen for each day aren't looking so hot. E.g., green overall day, but red MK. Should I try to reschedule my many dining res and other events or am I TY

    Thanks for visiting the Mom's Panel, Lauren! You are going to love visiting the "Happiest Place on Earth" when the parks are beautifully decorated for the Holiday season!  I think you are very wise to choose a time of year to visit Walt Disney World when crowd levels are traditionally lower. The unofficial website allears.net features a Historical Attendance Levels Chart and lists the week following Thanksgiving until mid December as "lowest attendance." I always consider the crowd levels when choosing a vacation date, but do not plan my park days based on crowd predictors. In fact, the unofficial website touringplans.com most always recommends that guests avoid a park offering Extra Magic Hours; whereas, my family always takes advantage of Morning Extra Magic Hours. Because we always stay on property and are able to utilize the Extra Magic Hours, we have found that we are able to get many of our favorite attractions done when the parks are less crowded. I also have the unofficial app Undercover Tourist on my phone and look at it frequently for wait times while on vacation. However, I do not change our itinerary if the park we have chosen.to visit is "red" especially when I have already made Advanced Dining Reservations. Since you have already made several Advanced Dining Reservations and planned your trip accordingly, I would not recommend trying to change everything you have booked. If there is a particular day you are most concerned about, then you could check availability for the restaurant you have currently booked and then modify your itinerary. I hope this helps!  Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Sending pixie dust your way that you have a Magical "crowd free" trip, Lauren!
    Happy Planning,
