    Will the xmas lights be up at Thanksgiving and when is the Magic Kingdom Christmas Party?? Also how crowded is it at Thanksgiving???

    Guests can expect to see the holiday displays completed by Thanksgiving all around Walt Disney World, Sandra.  And believe me when I tell you that you're going to want to make time to see as much as you can; Disney knows how to deck the halls!  As for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, it takes place on select nights between November 9th and December 21st.  A separate admission ticket is required and can be purchased at a slight discount in advance, or for full price at the Transportation and Ticket Center on the night of the event.  All of the dates for the event can be found HERE

    Lastly, I would warn you to prepare for thick crowds during Thanksgiving week.  The holidays are an especially busy time to visit Disney.  But so, too, are they an especially festive time to visit.  Enjoy your trip!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
