YIKES....looks super crowded right now

I am at work and just pulled up the wait times app to see how bad it was down in the parks because we are leaving this Sat night. From what I see, I am VERY glad I'm not there right now. In MK right now SM, BTMRR, PP, Dumbo, JC, HM, SM are all over one hour waits. In HS RRnC is 105 min, ToT is 60, TSM is listed as 120+ and both of these parks are recomn'd.

Yep, Thanksgiving (along with most holidays) result in much larger crowds. A few days after Thanksgiving it'll go back to being fairly slow until mid-December.

It sounds like a typical July day to me.....whenever I see a wait time for TSM of less than 120, the first thought that comes to my mind is, "oh, it's not that busy!". As long as you know how to navigate the crowds (when they go left, you go right), it's do-able.

What is one of the better/best wait time apps that are free out there?

The one I use is the Undercover Tourist one...the one with the green frog.

It works so well and is so user friendly that I went ahead and bought the ad-free version.

I'm not surprised. I would expect it to be super crowded this week.

I use "Lines" ap and it's really good. Accurate, lots of features. I think I paid $10 for it. Works at Disneyland too.

That is why I always go to WDW the first Monday after Thanksgiving weekend. I feel lucky to be able to take vacation at this time of the year every year. I think that most of the Thanksgiving week and weekend folks will be flying back home on Sunday night or Monday afternoon for work or school. But it could be different this year. I guess that I will find out in 5 more days.

We just got home and my thoughts are the same. Our last trip was last week of June. We have been to DL first week of July. Thats busy, but our norm. So when we arived on Friday, parks seemed slow. Saturday, Sunday not much different. We did notice it busy Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday was a little more, but doable. I think it is all a matter of perspective of what you expect to get done.
