    What is the best week to see the christmas decorations the week right after Thanksgiving or the first full week of December(5-12 )(as far as crowd level?) Touring plans.com says first weekof Dec. but with pop warner there I find that hard to believe.Thanks

    Hi Derek and I am with you.  I was actually there the first week of December this past December ('08).  I can say without a doubt it was crowded.  One evening at DHS we could barely move there were so many people there to see the lights.  Now with that said, crowds can change every year, but those I spoke with who had been there the week before, said the crowds were actually better the week right after Thanksgiving.  I also think crowd numbers can change depending on when Thanksgiving actually falls.  It was late last year, so that too may have played into the larger crowds that first full week of December.  I wish I could give you a definite answer but from my own personal experience, I think I would give the week right after Thanksgiving a go!  Thanks so much for the great question and have a great vacation no matter when you go.  Is it too early to say Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays?
