Not at the World, but we're with Disney. This will be our seventh consecutive year at the Hilton Head Island resort. Last night DH signed up for the Thanksgiving morning 5K and free beer. As he always says, he runs so that he can justify eating all the Signe's pie!

Thanksgiving basketball tourney

If you want to see some college BASKETBALL that week, the Old Spice Classic will feature some great teams playing at ESPN Wide World of Sports. Games start Thanksgiving Day with the championship game to be played Sunday night. Come cheer on these student athletes!

We are arriving on Thanksgiving day and staying until 12/1. I can't wait. My DS and his fiancee moved to Gainesville this year so they will be joining us for the 4 day weekend and I can't wait to see them.

We did this same time frame 3 years ago and it worked out great. The first 3 days we did a lot of shows and rides that are fast loaders and then the crowds died out from Sunday on.

There are 2 little girls who will turn 7 and 8 at the beginning of Nov who are in for the surprise of their lives. Neither knows about the trip yet. Our niece is the 7 year old and she is going to find out on her b-day on the 10th. The 8 year old is our friend's daughter and they aren't telling her until we wake her up at 3 AM on Thanksgiving morning to leave for our 6 AM flight!

I drag myself to work everyday so that I can go to Disney World every year! Kungaloosh!

It's good to hear all the positive responses to Thanksgiving in the parks. Going at non-peak times is getting harder to do with DD13's school work.
We are going on a cruise with extended family out of Port Canaveral and get off the boat Thanksgiving morning. We were planning to hit US/IOA for the day then head home Friday morning but DD's BFF is performing in the parade at MK T-Day so we decided we just have to try and see her! I'm waitlisted for AKL & BLT but I know it's a one in a million shot so we have ressies for POP. I know it will be crazy packed but we are prepared to just try to spot BFF in the parade T-Day, get a few rides in at one of the parks Friday and enjoy the holiday decorations!

Looks like I'll be passing on our trip there for Thanksgiving this year... So a 2 BR in AKV Kidani should be opening up today or tomorrow depending on when I get a hold of MS.

We will be at SSR 11/14 - 23 for our first real Thanksgiving stay. Last year DH and I arrived the Sat after T-day and really didn't have any problem with the crowds. This year we have 3 days by ourselves before family joins us. This is a big birthday celebration. My granddaughter and I share the same birthday with Mickey, Nov 18! She will be 6 and I will be 60.

2 of us (not I) are golfing in the AM, the day of and the rest are doing the parks in the am! I will be cooking which I thoroughly enjoy! On holidays like this we like to eat around 1pm, that way we can have cold turkey sandwiches late in the evening!

Looking forward to it!
I've cooked multiple Thanksgiving dinners in the villa. It's fun, relaxing and something about being at WDW makes it cozy! Enjoy!

This will be our first Thanksgiving in Disney. I booked SSR just 2 days ago and was shocked to get it. Although I had to split 2 days in a studio and 2 days in a 1 bedroom. Im good with that. I had extra point this year and this was a good way to use them up.

I figured it would be very crowded so I have prepared myself for that, but we have never been in the parks during the winter holidays so I am beyond excited to see the castle lit up and the osborne lights.

We couldnt get good airfare so we will suck it up and drive from Maryland.

I just cant wait!

We're headed to Disney for the first time for Thanksgiving to watch the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Old Spice Classic. Very excited since the only time I was at WWS was for the Marathon weekend. Not sure how Thanksgiving dinner will go, but we'll see

We are also arriving on thanksgiving. Been to the world 10+ times, but never saw it decorated for a holiday. I am so excited! I know the crowds are busy, but taking it with a grain of salt. I just can't wait!

We are flying down on Tuesday night before TD and staying at Kidani for two nights...all 22 of us and then we have a thanksgiving luncheon at liberty tree tavern planned after which we will check in at the BWV for 10nights all in boardwalk view rooms with one Grand villa. I have do this every three years or so at this time and its perfect. The holiday decorations, the weather and the crowds are perfect for us. We do nothing but enjoy the ambiance at the beginning of the week and then after Thanksgiving we enjoy the lower crowd levels to see what we want . Patriots are palying the jets on thanksgiving so we will have a holiday party at the Grand villa that night. Getting really excited now.
