Thanks for your response! I appreciate your advice! We do have six days in the parks with two of them being short days but we don’t need any breaks or days off with ages of our children. I was told that the Polynesian, where the luau is, is a great place to watch the mk fireworks. Not true? And that the Epcot fireworks can be viewed from the cape may? My kids prefer buffets over quick service meals.

Regina, you can’t see the EPcot fireworks from Cape May. You can see the MK fireworks from the beaches near the Poly, but they are a hundred times better inside the park, on the Main Street axis, facing the Castle.

Ok! Thank you so much for answering my questions and setting it straight! It is so helpful if planning our days! I am going to follow your low crowd schedule to plan our days starting on that Monday, March 2.

Hi there –
My family and mother are going to Disney staying in our condo at Westgate – checking in Dec 26th and out on the 2nd… We will have a 13 yr old, 10 yr old and us adults. We are looking to do a 3 day hopper pass – where can I get the best deal on those?? Also what are the best days to visit the MK during that week… obviously not the weekend and it will be busy the full week. We plan to arrive when the park opens, hit whatever rides first and then just plan on sight seeing – take pictures… etc. we do want to see the electric light parade at night, so thought about leaving for a little while, but afraid we won’t be able to get back in – do you know what time the parade starts at night?? Just excited to see all the decorations, my 10 yr old has never been. Also, am I understanding correctly that you can not purchase a dining package (like we were able to get for Busch gardens) because we are not staying onsight – do they allow you to bring bottle water in or any snacks in a backpack?? We will be there also for NYE – we don’t need to go “IN” the parks but do you have a spot outside where we can watch the fireworks?? Thanks for the great website and any help you can give!!

Hiya Amy! There are no good days, but some are better than others. See Josh’s Dec stuff here http://www.easywdw.com/category/calendar/12-december-2014-crowd-calendar/ and his January stuff here–they also include such things as parade times http://www.easywdw.com/category/calendar/01-january-2015-crowd-calendar/

The only fireworks you can see well forom outside are HS from just outside the turnstiles and MK from the TTC…

My family and I are planning our first trip. I am a teacher and am limited to summer June7-August 15, 2 weeks at Christmas, Thanksgiving week and Spring break March 7-14. What is the best time to go. We really dislike the heat but huge crowds are not great either. Is it a lost cause?

7 Dave { 01.22.15 at 7:13 am }

Hi Andrea! If not for the heat issue, I’d advise as early in June or late in August as your schedule permits. The March option is your next best choice.
