I have a friend who wants to take her 6-year old daughter and husband to WDW over Christmas this year. I told her that’s the busiest time of the year and she then asked me if it was a mistake to go for a first visit during that time - none of them have ever been.
I honestly don’t know how to answer that.
I personally would not choose to go at that time because of the crowds, but I know different people have different experiences and some people love going over Christmas. On the other hand, it’s not a great time to go simply because you can’t do as much and a novice Disney visitor may not know how to use Fastpasses to their full advantage. And the crowds can be quite intense during that time too. But I’m not sure if I should discourage her to go at that time or not.
What would you tell someone who asked if Christmas is a bad time to go for a first-time visit?
