    We are coming to wdw the week before Thanksgiving. what are the crowds like. We have a 8yr and 5 yr old. And which day of the week is slower for magic kingdom

    November is a pretty average month from the crowd size perspective, right up until the last week. It starts pretty slow and crowds build up until the week of Thanksgiving. That week is very busy, and it can be almost too much for most visitors. But I think that you will find that the week before Thanksgiving will be a pretty good one to be there, both from crowd size as well as weather.

    As for what day to visit the Magic Kingdom, the busiest are traditionally Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. I always go for a Tuesday, which seems to work out for me on most trips.
