    Thanks for all your help so far! Debating between coming to WDW Nov 23-30 (Thanksgiving week) right after our Disney cruise or Dec 14-22 (my 30th bday is Dec 16). I know it's impossible to predict crowd levels, but which week would you recommend and why?

    Hi Kristin!

    How wonderful that you will be enjoying a "Land and Sea vacation"!  Being able to enjoy both a Disney cruise and a stay at Walt Disney World ensures your family will have a wonderful time on the Disney ship and at the Disney parks!

    Of the two weeks you've selected, I would opt for the December dates.  Primarily, thanksgiving week is peak for Disney attendance as schools around the country are out for the week.  Crowd levels are high as are wait times for the attractions.  During the week before Christmas, the crowd levels will be a bit lower, and the probability of scoring a discount is pretty good.  You will be able to enjoy more of the attractions and the ambiance without having to deal with major crowds.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
