    Hi Panel! We are headed to BC Nov. 23 for 6 nights. I am trying to make ADRs for the trip and can't decide if we should do Hollywood the 24th and take advantage of Magic Hours or do Animal Kingdom since that weekend may still be busy from Thanksgiving.

    Hi, Abby!  I can't really tell you what would work best for your family, but I can tell you that the weekend is going to be busy, likely through Sunday.  In my experience, when the theme parks are busy during a holiday, extra magic hours in the morning are usually a good opportunity to get a jump start on a park, but evening extra magic hours can be quite busy, as resort guests are trying to take advantage of the extra park time. 

    Since the 24th has the morning extra magic hours, you may want to head there and get in the extra hour to do things that are going to be super busy later in the day, like Toy Story Midway Mania, for example.  I think I'd be tempted to do Hollywood Studios.

    I hope you have an awesome vacation!
