    Hi Jessica,

    I just checked the Touring Plans site (an independent site that predicts parks attendance and attraction wait times) and they confirmed what you have already heard; the week after Thanksgiving is a lovely time to visit Walt Disney World.  You will see peak crowds on November 23rd and 24th.  However, the crowds will largely dissipate thereafter.  If you want to check out these predictions for yourself, go to and click on the "November 2012 crowd calendar."

    Wishing you a magical vacation later this month!  You certainly have picked a great time to visit as the parks and resorts are never more beautiful than during the holidays.
