[QUOTE=CaraMia;992326]I really wanted to pass on disney this winter but it is a tradition to go during the holidays. My parents suggested we look into going the day after Thanksgiving. It would be just for the weekend. We normally go either the first weekend in December or the second. I know the crowds are real bad in December but the day after Thanksgiving I am not sure about. My parents have seasonal tickets that expire on Nov 30th so if we went this particular weekend it would save them from having to get the renewals. Same as us with my son’s ticket. My ticket and h’s just expired and we have to get new ones regardless of whether it is Nov or Dec that we go.
Anyone know about the crowds that Thanksgiving weekend? I already found out that the resorts are more $$ for that weekend in November. I got a quote of $149 for French Quarter- waterview room. That was all that was available. And they only had a studio or villa at AKL for $244 per night. The rate we got for December for Coronado was $94 per night, and $160 (with tax) for AKL.[/QUOTE]
Don’t do it!!! Go a week or two before. You need to be close to Thanksgiving to see the holiday lights, but to go on the actual holiday is just not a good idea (just my opinion, of course)
Having said that I’m going the week before to DL staying from fri nite and departing tues. morning. I’m only doing it because we know a lot of people that are going at the same time, but if they were going ON Thanksgiving I wouldn’t be joining them.
