After Thanksgiving Disney World Crowds


HI Dad
Our Disney World Vacation is scheduled for Nov 27 through December 4th. We have 4 young kids 6,5,4,and 2. I picked these dates hoping to avoid the crowds and still be able to enjoy the Christmas season decorations. Was this a good choice? Will the Thanksgving crowds be gone or do they filter in to that week right after?

Thank you I have found this site very helpful!

Dad’s everything is beautiful Answer


Congratulations. You have picked the perfect week to visit Disney World. You will have access to all of the Christmas decorations, shows and extras (including the Candlelight Processional).

The best part about this week is, after Thanksgiving, Disney World crowds dwindle to nothing. By Sunday, everyone will clear out and the Pop Warner kids don’t show up until the next week.

You chose wisely.

I want to know how bad WDW was the week after Thanksgiving- I am thinking about going 11/28-12/5, but am getting conflicting reports on crowds- any help will be great.

With 4 kids under the age of 6, it sounds like you need 2 more adults to help out during your trip. Dad and I are volunteering!!!!!
