    We are planning a trip for Nov. 15-22. This is the week before Thanksgiving. Will the parks be crowded like Thanksgiving Week or will there be lighter crowds like the week after Thanksgiving?


    The crowds should be lighter, for the most part, like the week after Thanksgiving.

    But realize that the Saturday/Sunday at the end of your vacation is really the start of a vacation for someone else coming down for that week of Thanksgiving. So the crowds really kick in on that Saturday and Sunday the 21st and 22nd. If you can plan your trip to end by the Friday before (the 20th), with travel home on the Saturday, you will be like a fish swimming upstream (in a good way!).

    Please feel free to send me any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
