Most theme parks, festivals and museums bring out their best stuff and lengthen their hours on crowded days. Get the map and schedule of events, preferably in advance, and plan your day around your favorites. Arrive early for shows and parades. You, and especially your kids, will enjoy them more if you have a good seat.
Heavy crowds may keep you from seeing and doing everything, but they can't keep you from having a good day. The important thing is to make good memories, even if they are the kind you'll laugh about later.
