    What are the crowds like during the first two weeks of November?

    Hello, Kim,

    The first two weeks of November will typically have lighter crowds in the parks, and it can often be a great time to visit. If you happen to arrive by November 1, 2015, you can catch the last Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, enjoy the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival which runs through November 16, 2015, and even enjoy the transformations of the parks and resorts as they begin to shine for the holidays.  In fact, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party begins on November 8, 2015. 

    I should share with you that while the crowds are lighter, the first couple of weeks in November do often overlap with what is known as "Jersey Week," when schools in New Jersey have an extended weekend resulting in some families opting for a Walt Disney World vacation. However, I wouldn't let that discourage you as it is no where like what the week between Christmas Day and New Year's Eve is like when essentially every school is on vacation. If I had a chance to visit Walt Disney World during that time, I would do it in a heartbeat!

    As you continue planning and have more questions, please let us know.  We are happy to help!  -Kara
