    We have the week after Thanksgiving booked at Disney this year, thinking of changing to the first week in November to take advantage of the free dining plan. Is the first week in November a lot busier than after Thanksgiving?? What to do...

    Hi Rebecca and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    Personally, I don't think that you would experience that much difference in the crowds when comparing the first week of November and the last week of November. I would absolutely book the first week if it allowed me to take advantage of free dining.  There are a number of websites that produce projected crowd estimates for each day of the year. My favorite can be found at However, there is a fee if you want to see more than a month or so out. I also like and their crowd calendar is accessible at no cost.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have more questions, come on back to the Panel- we love to help!

    See ya real soon,
