    Hello! I have planned a trip from 11/11 - 11/18. Wondering if this is a recommended time to go, and what the crowds will be like. I have never been to Disney in the middle of November.. are the crowds similar to those at the end of November? Thanks!

    Hi, Alexis!  I think November, before Thanksgiving, is a great time to go.  You'll find the holiday decorations are beginning to appear, and you may be there on a night when you can attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.  Crowds this time of the year are very reasonable.  Many families are gearing up for holiday vacation time, and may not want to take the kids out of school.

    The weather is usually very comfortable this time of year, with low humidity, and nice sunny days.  You're at the end of hurricane season, and you'll be over the days of high humidity, so you may not even see the typical afternoon showers you usually see in the warmer weather months.

    The busiest time of November is Thanksgiving.  You're going to miss the bulk of those crowds.

    I hope you get to enjoy a wonderful November vacation!
