    For those of you have have been during these particulare weeks, I am wondering which will be the LEAST crowded time to visit WDW (our first family trip): Nov 17-22 (the weekend before Thanksgiving) or Dec 17-22 (a week before Christmas)? Thanks!

    Hi Brittany!
    Wow! Talk about a question that is truly six of one and half dozen of another in terms of the answer. I have been during both weeks and there is little to no advantage in terms of crowds. In fact, BOTH weeks you mention are two of the least crowded weeks of the entire year (historically). Since Christmas Day moves with the calendar each year I think it makes it a bit harder to judge because people plan to arrive a few days before, or a few days after, or the entire week before, etc. Thanksgiving is always the last Thursday of November, so I think the crowd level is a bit more predictable. Therefore, I would give a slight advantage to that choice for smaller crowds.
    Regardless of the week you choose, I wish you a Magical vacation!! :)
