We are thinking about Christmas party 11/13 but it sounds like free dining is also during that time. Will that have huge impact on crowd levels? Found an article on TP’s blog anticipating crowd levels and it looked like a pretty good night to go but it was written in May (before FD was announced). Any thoughts?
FD is at this time. It is part of our package. We are going to the Christmas party on the 14th. HS in the morning and early afternoon and then off to MK for the party.
You should be fine. Buy the tickets and have a great time.
The majority of people visiting the disney parks will be staying offsite. The occupation levels at the disney resorts are always pretty high anyway - disney offers free dining to keep it that way. So, I wouldn’t worry too much about free dining affecting crowd levels.
