Well your two date ranges are basically the same, except for the 2nd - 5th which just tacks on Saturday. In any case it shouldn't be incredibly crowded, but nonetheless be prepared. The middle of the week is when crowds are lightest, particularly Tuesdays and Thursdays. So the 3rd will probably be the least crowded day. - JRDrummer_CM 875.4 #186 12-11-12 10:53PMLikeReply
Having been there on those exact dates this year I can tell you that it will be very crowded. Rose Bowl game and parade are on New Year's Day. Both teams and their families from the Rose Bowl will be in the parks that week too. Disneyland was a bit too crowded for us so we ended up spending more time in DCA even with all the construction that was going on at that time. Good luck though! - KermitFan13 653.6 #275 12-12-12 6:28AMLikeReply
