    Marchelli from LA Asked

    We will be traveling to WDW Nov 18 and leaving on the 24th. Some people say it will be packed and others say we shouldn't have any problems with the crowds. I haven't been there in Nov, looking to get some answers.

    Hi Marchelli,

    The following is all the information direct from the WDW Website about the busiest and least busy times of the year to visit WDW:
    Although special events and promotions may influence Theme Park attendance levels, the following list highlights historic attendance trends throughout the year:

    Lowest Attendance: January (except New Year's Day) until just prior to Presidents' week in February
    The week following Labor Day until just prior to Thanksgiving week
    The week following Thanksgiving until the week prior to Christmas

    Moderate Attendance: After Presidents' week in February through early March
    Late April through early June (except Memorial Day weekend)
    The first part of Thanksgiving week

    Highest Attendance: Presidents' week in February
    Mid-March through Late April ("Spring Break")
    Memorial Day weekend
    Mid-June through Labor Day
    Thanksgiving Day and weekend
    Christmas week through New Year's Day

    During regular attendance periods the Theme Parks tend to be the busiest on the following days:
    Magic Kingdom® Park: Monday, Thursday, and Saturday
    Epcot®: Tuesday and Friday
    Disney's Hollywood Studios™: Sunday and Wednesday
    Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

    Thanksgiving is on November 24, 2011 and even though you will be leaving on Thanksgiving Day and that Weekend which is considered the Highest Attendance Period to visit WDW, you will still be there during the High crowd season which is considered the week prior to Thanksgiving (or starting November 19th).  You will not see the Extreme High as far as crowds/Resort pricing, etc..., but you will experience higher than normal crowds because it's the week leading up to this big holiday.  

    Best wishes,
    Brigitta
