    The prices for Disney world accommodation are about 25 to 30% more during the first 2 weeks in Dec than in mid Nov 2025. I would like to know how busy are the parks between 10th - 21th Nov - which includes Veterans Day ? I prefer low crowds.

    Hey Howdy Hey Ann and welcome to planDisney!

    I am so excited to hear you are in the beginning stages of planning your Magical holiday to the Walt Disney World Resort. Planning can be such an exciting part of your vacation. Checking into all the resorts, planning your days in the Theme Parks and doing your research on all the tasting offerings is a super fun part of the planning! Thank you for your question about crowd levels during your holiday time. I will be happy to give you more information on expectations. Giddy up!

    Over the years, Disney has recognized crowd levels wax and wane and has developed several strategies to keep the interest high. From RunDisney events and Special Offers and Discounts, there is always a reason to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth. With all that said, there still are times when you can visit the parks with lower-than-average crowd levels. One of the big tools you can use is a Disney World Crowd Calendar.

    There are many options available online if you type "Disney World Crowd Calendar" into your search engine, you will find many choices. These calendars are handy because they use the current calendar of events for the resort as well as historical data to make predictions of the crowd levels. They will even get specific enough to recommend which parks to visit on which days for the lowest crowd levels. From the times we have visited in the fall, your best bet would be either early November or early December for lower crowds but still experiencing much of the Holiday spirit as the parks and resorts will be dressed in their Christmas best! 

    One big way you can also manage crowds on your upcoming holiday is with the purchase of Genie+. With Genie+, you will have access to Lightning Lanes which you can book during your holiday for access to shorter wait times so you can spend more time enjoying the parks and experiences and less time waiting in line. You will have the option to purchase these on the day of your visit, so you can pick and choose which parks on which days you want to use Genie+. It is a really nice way to spend time in the parks the way you want! 

    I hope this information helped you get a better idea of crowd expectations on your upcoming holiday. If you have any further questions, know that you have a friend in us here at planDisney to help you out!

    To Infinity and Beyond,
