    Hi! Just booked a last minute trip for Nov 22-28 and want to know if any portion of that timeframe is typically more crowded at the parks. Is the week of Thanksgiving generally more crowded then the week after, or is there not a difference? Thanks!

    Hi Julia, 

    You will just love visiting Walt Disney World during the Holiday Season.  Typically, the week of Thanksgiving is more crowded than the week after since most children have time off from school that week.  It is not as busy as Christmas or New Years Eve.  Generally the Wednesday before Thanksgiving through the weekend will be busier than the beginning of the week.  I would make sure that you make your Advanced Dining Reservations ASAP if you have not done so.  This way you will have any specific meals and restaurants already planned out.  A very Thanksgiving like meal is at the Liberty Tree Tavern at the Magic Kingdom.  This family-style meal is all you can eat and will have turkey, beef, and sliced pork with mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, stuffing and macaroni and cheese.  My family just loves dining here for dinner!  I know that you will have such a magical vacation, Julia!  Enjoy!
