This will be my fifth time in Disney come late 09. I've got 3 kids ages 19, 15, and 8. I'm really in love with the park and every time I go I realize how much more there is to see. I'm not sure where I should post this question but my main concern right now is timing. I am a school teacher so I must follow the school calendar and my husband absolutely despises intense heat (aka all summer). So I'm stuck with only two options: Thanksgiving week and Christmas week. Our last two trips were Presidents' Day Weekend and Easter Week so we know what big crowds are. We can handle it but we'd prefer to go the least crowded week possible. I have read many conflicting reports about which is less crowded so I'd love to hear if anyone has firsthand experience.

The week of Christmas is hands down the busiest week at Disney, Thanksgiving should be slightly better.

Welcome to DISboards. We just got there last Christmas and it's really crowded but we managed it, maybe less crowds during Thanksgiving.

Have a nice day. :)
