    Which has the lowest crowds, end of September or the week prior to Thanksgiving week? I normally go in November but thought I would try a different month. But want to go when there are fewer crowds.

    Hello Lisa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   Both times you mention should have about the same crowd level, in my experience.  As you may already know, crowds seem to drastically pick up beginning the Monday before Thanksgiving.  The week before that usually sees very manageable crowd levels.  The end of September is also typically good for lower crowds, especially the very end of the month.  Whatever you decide, remember to plan your dining and FastPass+ selections far in advance.  Enjoy another exciting trip to Walt Disney World!

    I wish you a magical vacation.
