My kids (Son 14 and Daughter 11) are out of school from December 16 through the new year. My wife and I are thinking about spending a day or two at Disneyland and/or California Adventure during that time. We all love the Disney experience but don't much like the crowds. In the past we've gone the Monday and Tuesday after Thanksgiving and we owned the park. It was great. But now the kids are old enough that we can't pull them out of school like that.
I'm hoping to tap into some of the great knowledge here:
1) What should we expect in the way of crowds the week of Dec 18 and the week of Dec 26?
2) It seems like Fastpass makes even the croded days ok. Is this really the case?
