    Planning a short group trip for Veterans Day weekend and a few are worried about long lines or missing out. What are the crowd levels?

    Hi Maribel!

    Well, I just looked and Veteran's Day is November 11, 2013.  So, I got on one of my favorite Disney planning websites ( to see what the crowds look like for that weekend before.

    The crowd levels for that weekend are predicted to be an 8 out of 10 for both days (November 9 and 10).  While this is on the higher end, you can reassure your group members that with a bit of planning ahead and using the Disney FASTPASS system, it will still be a great trip!  Plus, the weather is usually awesome that week AND you will get to see a lot of the Christmas decorations.  My family vacationed that week last year and plan to do the same this year.   We love the late fall months at Disney World!

    As a side note, the runDisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon will also be taking place that weekend.  The half marathon race is Saturday night.  Runners won't affect the overall numbers much, but you will feel like you see them everywhere:) 

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have other questions as you plan your trip!
