    How are the crowds the week after Thanksgiving? We are thinking of arriving the Saturday after Thanksgiving and staying through the week. Thank you for your help.

    Hey there Jennifer!

    I think you have picked a practically perfect time to visit Walt Disney World! While the Saturday after Thanksgiving might be a little busy as the Thanksgiving crowds typically leave on Sunday, you should still be able to have a *MAGICAL* time. We visited during the first week of December last year and found the crowds to be minimal. There were even times where we would forego our FastPass+ selections due to low wait times.

    For a detailed review of crowd predictions I always check out the calendars on They take things like historical crowd levels, weather and special events into consideration when making their recommendations. While the December calendar won't be up for a few more months, you can review their recommendations from last year to get an idea of what might be in store for this year.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
