Has anyone been to WDW on Christmas Day? I want to plan my next vacation from Dec 20th until Jan 2nd of 2014-15, because I love Christmas and its my bday too, my question is how bad are the crowds?

They reach capacity at Christmas on most days, very crowded. May even be worse or just as crowded as Spring Break. - mrsincredible  1069.1 #5 2:02PM
I've never been for Christmas but I would imagine its very crowded - Schramke  529.9 #12 2:02PM
ok maybe i should go in early December? - DisneyVicki  23.6 #149 2:08PM
Yes!! The first 2 weeks of Dec are some of the least crowded of the whole year, and you'll still get to see all the Christmas decor!! - mrsincredible  1069.1 #5 2:20PM
We do this for Disneyland Paris We go before school holidays start but all festivities have started. It's so Christmassy - snow on Main St during the parade, the tree lighting ceremony every evening pure magic. It's my birthday too - best bit though no crowds!! - rink2  138.7 #58 3:41PM
Ok, I wanted to stay longer, but not with Kayli's school schedule, but ok - DisneyVicki  23.6 #149 2:28PM
Wow your adventurous. I'm sure it will be great. - 5disneylovers  1119.3 #4 2:34PM
Go any other time if you can. - DizneyGirl  777.2 #7 2:51PM
Really don't wanna ruin your DW plans but Christmas and new years are the busiest time. But don't let that stop you from havin a great time! WDW at christmas is a once in a lifetime MUST!! good luck (: - ariel116  99.3 #70 3:26PM
Yes, we went 12/23-12/30 one year and never again! Too crowded and expensive and wouldn't suggest it. Try the first few weeks of Dec for a more more enjoyable WDW Christmas and bday! - Andrea84  701.7 #9 3:49PM
Did you see a lot of celebrities during the Christmas Day parade or can you even get a spot for that? - DisneyVicki  23.6 #149 4:08PM
The "Christmas Day" Parade is filmed a few weeks before. So it's actually not live at all. Most celebrities are like the locals: Staying away from WDW during this time (Unless there for Candlelight at Epcot) - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #2 4:21PM
Really that stinks, so if I went earlier, would I see the parade they air on tv...but hey say it's live? - DisneyVicki  23.6 #149 4:31PM
They don't annouce it for a while as far as filming dates. It's not really worth the hassle. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #2 4:57PM
Ok im in the minority. But i have been at xmas many times and loved it. It is magical and yes crowded. Take advantage of EMH and fastpasses get ready for the parades early and sit and rest for a bit. I - Bakerjars  241.3 #32 5:09PM
I don't need to worry about fastpasses because I'm disabled and get in the fastpass line for every ride..just worried a little bit about crowds..I dunno..maybe it is a once in a lifetime thing and I should do it, are the water parks heated and open then? - DisneyVicki  23.6 #149 5:44PM
I didn't know you could get in fast pass line with disability - lghr  48.8 #105 7:53PM
You can..get a guest assistance card at guest relations and then you get in fastpass line every time...worked for me last week and all I said at guest relations was that I hate crowds, lol - DisneyVicki  23.6 #149 8:05PM
^^^That worked??? Hmmm, I have access to a therapist wonder if I can get her to write me a note. - Lelundrial  581.4 #327 8:16PM
Yes, but I was also in a scooter...don't know if that had any effect. - DisneyVicki  23.6 #149 3:09AM
I can guarantee that had an effect. I am not good with crowds. Even at comic-con I have to get out of the exhibit hall and find a space to take a breather nearly every 20 minutes. I don't like people near me, and my tolerance has been seriously diminishing over the years. - Lelundrial  581.4 #327 7:31AM
We went last year for the first time during the Christmas holidays and it was not bad. We only had one day when it was crowded. It is still the prettiest time to go. If u are not in the Christmas spirit when u are there something is wrong. - tdarden  10.3 #245 6:16AM
I've been there a few times for Christmas we used to go every year on Christmas the crowds aren't too terrible it is definitely busy though but with all the lights and things to see its worth walking between a few extra people. I've never seen it hit capacity at those times I was there. So not as bad as spring break - mickeym0use  20.6 #162 7:16AM
