    2 families totaling 10 will be traveling to Disney either Thanksgiving - arriving Nov. 20 or President's week - arriving Feb. 12. with children ages from 5 to 15. Trying to decide which week would be best in regard to weather and crowds? Suggestions?

    Hey Angela!  Thanks for the great question.  Okay, I have never been during the month of November, but I have been every other month and yes I've been on President's week.  I can honestly tell you I have never seen WDW so crowded in my entire life, and I have even been there on the 4th of July.  Now this is not to say that Thanksgiving won't be crowded too, but there is something about that President's week that there just always seems to be a great deal of people that go to WDW. 
    I saw that you are from GA like me, and it seems to be a time when a great deal of people from GA go down to Orlando.  I can't guarantee you what the crowds will look like at anytime of the year, but if I were choosing, I would go during Thanksgiving.  Not to mention you will get to see the incredible holiday decorations during that time, too.
    I hope this helps and if you have any more questions about planning your upcoming trip, I hope you will come back to the Mom's Panel.
