Mom And Son On Run

    Barbara Asked

    I am going to wdw during presidents week with my mom and my three kids, 10,8,5. I could not take them out of school. How busy it usually that week. Valentine's day is feb 14 and we will be there, how hard is it to move around.

    Hey Barbara!  I'm going to be honest with you, it is crowded during that particular weekend.  Many schools are out for this holiday and a great deal of them find themselves at WDW.  I have been that weekend and it was crowded.  So to make the best of it, here are a few suggestions that helped us not to waste too much time in long lines.  First we hit the parks super early.  As soon as the rope dropped, we were off and running to the attractions we knew would become busy late in the day.  We made great use of fast passes and tried to make sure we at our meals a bit earlier than the average time for lunch and/or dinner.  We always buy the hopper pass option, so if one park became more than we could take, we simply left and headed to another park.  The weather was wonderful, so it did help to make standing in line a bit more tolerable.
    No matter what the crowds are, you will be at WDW, and how can you help but to have a magical time.  Best of luck on your planning, and thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel.
