    We just got home on February 9 from Disney. We arrived February 2. My goodness we’re there a lot of people. We went the first week of February in 2017 and the lines were nothing but this time we were surprised and not in a good way. Too many people and super long lines ?. We used to go the last week in January and crowds were minimal but we switched to February for a better chance of warm weather. So bummed people caught on. ?????

    We leave Monday, Jan 21. We are only doing 3 park days, 22-24. Did we choose a bad week to go?! My hope was people would be back in school after Monday but it’s looking like people had the same idea as me. Do you recommend which parks to do which days? We are planning on doing AK, MK and HS!
    Thanks for your help!

      Sorry, just found your itinerary for this coming week. We are planning to do MK Tuesday, HS Wednesday and AK with the possibility of going back to MK Thursday if the kids want to!
      Your site is awesome and so helpful! Thanks!

      Hi Nicki so far crowds have been running high–like the last two years. The 22nd any of the three parks will be fine. The 23rd avoid MK. The 24th any of the three will be fine.

    We will be in Florida the month of January and really want to see Epcot with holiday decorations. Which day would be best, plus avoiding the biggest crowds? If we came 1/5 or 1/6, would the decorations still be up? What about 1/7?

      Catherine, crowds will be quite heavy through 1/5. 1/6 and 1/7 should be OK. I am not sure Epcot will have much left then, though, as it is the first park to end its holiday program–it ends on 12/30. So much or all may have been taken down by then.

    We are thinking of taking our family to Disney the last week of January (Jan 26 arrival date). What operational choices are you referring to above? It will be our third trip to Disney, first for the kids. We have a reservation for the week after Thanksgiving 2018 but are thinking of pushing it back for personal reasons and we are hoping the Jan 26 dates will be similar in experience (minus Christmas programs obviously). Thank you!

      Hi Nicole, apparently they chose to save money by cutting back on capacity through various staffing approaches and also in some cases where possible limiting ride seats available (e.g. rides with two sides would operate just one). This led to much uproar, and we did not see it come back in May–the next natural time to try such a stunt.
