Oh WOW! November 2013?? I have no clue if I'm in or not since it's so far out. I'll tentatively say yes, but who knows! It'll be fun to plan and maybe by planning it, I'll really get to go!!!

My family probably would be able to go Thanksgiving day through the following weekend, as that's when my vacation and my DHs vacation falls.

Even if some go the week before, the Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) through Saturday or Sunday should overlap for most of us.

I can't believe we have had so much response so soon! Woo Hoo!

Swappers are goin to to the World!

I know early Nov. is quiet, but what are crowds like as you get closer to Turkey Day? We will be HSing DS, so we will have more flexibility to go whenever.

I mentioned this trip to DH and he laughed. He said, "Well if there was one person you would give up Black Friday shopping for, it would be Mickey!"

Each day leading up to Thanksgiving gets noticeably busier for that week. Then it drops off again in the beginning of December until around... the 15thish? Somewhere in there!

We traditionally arrive on black friday and the weekend is pretty busy. We notice that on Sunday the parks seem to thin out and by Tuesday the park are pretty easy to maneuver. Crowd levels on Monday and Tuesday are predicted at a 5. Easily manageable.

I've never been there the week of Thanksgiving, but I have heard it is very busy. I think crowd levels are at an 8 by Monday and Tuesday and by Wednesday and Thursday they are at 9.

Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday before Thanksgiving aren't too bad- the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving day, and the Staurday and Sunday after are always completely packed. My understanding is the crowds die down after that again. So it is really the weekend of Thanksgiving (starting on Wed) that is really crowded- before and after that the crowds are good. We have only stayed After Wednesday 1 time and won't do it again- it is not worth the DVC points and going to the parks with the crowds.

Hmmm, my parents bought a place in Winter Haven. Cute little double wide in a community that all the houses are on canals that lead to 14 different lakes for fishing. It is 5 minutes from Legoland and he says it is about 40 minutes to WDW. Not that he has gone so he could really time it.

We are going there this year for Thanksgiving as it will be their first major holiday in the new place. If it goes well, we may do it again. It would be every other year to keep some holidays with my in-laws.

That means 2013 would be a year I was there. I could possibly meet up with you all for a meal that is out of the park or if you go to DTD. I couldn't afford a single or two day pass for all of us and there is no way my kids would let me go to a park without them.

Anyway, put me in for now.

Yeah.....Ann is a definite maybe! We would certainly be able to schedule a dinner at DTD to meet up with you. This will be so much fun!

Who said looking two years into the future was crazy?

We've done Thanksgiving two years and I love it! We're actually doing it again this year (it's a secret from Morgan!), so I maaaaaay be able to swing this. We generally fly in the Friday before TG and leave the day after (because as Rebecca says, it gets mental). This year I was able to get really good flights for Thursday (the 17th) to Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) so that's when we'll be there this year

I'm a possible maybe.

If you and Morgan want to do Legoland one of those days, let me know. We are tentative for Sunday to Saturday if we drive.
