    Hi! We are looking at booking our Disney vacation during the week of Thanksgiving. Is this a good time? We went last June and were miserable trying to get through the crowds with a toddler. We are also considering the 2nd week in October. ???


    If you were "miserable" in the summer crowd, you'd pull out your hair during Thanksgiving Week!  The crowds are thick, albeit the weather helps you bear it better!

    If I were in your shoes and had a choice between Thanksgiving and October, I'd go with your October dates, hands-down.  Not only will the weather be just as delightful, the crowds will be thinner and your resort rate will be less!

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
