    PA too! Trip planned Nov 24 - Dec 1, trying to figure out which parks to see when? I thought DHS, EPCOT, AK on Wed, MK for Thanksgiving, then EPCOT for processional on 28th, DHS Sat, and MK for MVMCP on the 30th. What do you think? Please help soon! Thanks

    I'm going to take a look at last year's schedule in order to help you out with a November game plan. Just remember that the delayed release of the November hours may cause some things to change.

    If I was traveling from PA to WDW during your dates, I would:

    Monday: I would go to Epcot or Hollywood Studios in the morning, then Epcot or Animal Kingdom in the evening. Especially if the Hollywood Studios has evening Extra Magic Hours. And Monday's are a big day for crowds to hit the Magic Kingdom.
    Tuesday: Anywhere but Epcot (if it has an Extra Magic Hour morning as it did last year)
    Wednesday: Magic Kingdom or Epcot. Tour either of these parks before the crowds arrive on the actual holiday. Everyone wants to be at the Magic Kingdom or Epcot on Thanksgiving.
    Thanksgiving: Avoid the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Go to Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios.
    Friday: Avoid Epcot in the evening unless you must go this evening for the Candlelight Processional. All other parks are good choices for morning and/or evening unless the Extra Magic Hour schedule for 2008 is dramatically different.
    Saturday: Epcot or Animal Kingdom. If the Hollywood Studios have morning Extra Magic Hour again, then this will be the park that the crowds go to. Those without park hoppers will stay.
    Sunday: Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party sounds great. It's such a fun event!

    Here's my thoughts -
    During any holiday time, you want to go away from the crowds. Many resort guests head to the parks with Extra Magic Hours in the morning or evening. While Extra Magic Hours are great in the off-season, over a holiday week, I would avoid them.

    Have fun!
