    Hi! Planning a trip the week after Thanksgiving this year. Sun 25-Fri30, any advice on crowd level for that week and what park may be best each day?Also have QS DDP. Going to HS check-in day. If check in is at 3, How can we use our DP credits that day?

    Hi Joshua!

    Thanks for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    Historically, the crowd level will be high on Sunday and then fall off significantly on Monday.  With regards to what park to visit on which day, I suggest visiting the independent website  That's the website for the research team behind the tour book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".  They are famous in the Disney fan community for producing a crowd calendar that predicts the crowd level in the various parks on various days; that's exactly the information you are looking for.

    You can check-in as soon as you arrive at Walt Disney World.  You don't have to wait until your room is ready.  You can pick up your admission tickets and go into the parks and play and dine using your Disney Dining Plan meal credits.  Later you can return to the hotel when your room is ready.  If you have luggage, just leave it with Bell Services until your room is ready.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
