A lot of people have been saying the same thing so I'm going to not stress out about it anymore. See you there too!

Your better off to wait. I was looking for November too and I thought the rates were way to high. If you noticed on there site, they are offering flight specials April/May for 75.00 each way on certain days of the week so you might have to wait alittle bit longer and maybe they will offer those same deals soon.

Booked our flights with JetBlue this morning. We got really good prices $259pp round trip and direct flights. I did notice that shortly after I purchased our tickets prices on the site went up. That scared me so I was glad I went ahead and booked!!

Last year I was smart I watched air fares bought when they dropped on May 3 and only then booked my resort.

At least if I do end up having to pay more for our return trip doing 1 way I won' have to lay out all the $ at once lol
You were smart to do that. I would have done the same thing in a heartbeat, lol

Thanks. No. I actually prefer JetBlue out of Newburgh NY but the prices are crazy.

We have stayed the week before Thanksgiving several times and even again this year and have always had light crowds. Crowds will pick up the weekend right before thanksgiving (23rd+24th). This is our favorite time/week to go. Great weather and low crowds. I hope this eases your mind a little.

I also plan to be at disney Nov 9-23. From what I have read from blogs and crowd calendars the time before thanksgiving is not crowded. I plan to leave on the 23(Sat) to leave before the crowds arrive

Booked my airfare on JB tonight! Now it seems more real which only makes the time left seem longer. Paid more than I wanted but the way airfare goes up around me I didn't want to wait. At least I managed direct flights both ways. Have a really nervous DD that doesn't like flying so direct makes things a little easier.

Now I am just waiting for park hours, MVMCP and ADR's.

Thanks! Our trip is with my husband's parents, siblings and all their kids (17 of us)!! We're kind of having our big Thanksgiving celebration there. We even have traditional turkey dinner - we just don't have to cook it! It's a little odd being away that week, but since it's the whole group, it makes it totally worth it! We'll actually be seeing more family than we are usually able to see for Thanksgiving. I just hate that we won't be home to put up our Christmas tree that weekend, as that is our tradition. The crowds at Disney aren't too bad that week, either. Last time the only really busy day was Wednesday. We were surprised, but it was much lighter than other times of year we've been.

I just received an updated Crowd tracker from TP and it looks as if all estimated crowd levels have dropped for Early Nov 1-12 I am guessing bookings must be down compared to last year? No wonder with the high price of air fares
