Jersey Week Crowds

We are planning a trip during Jersy week next year. For those of you who visit at different times, how crowded is it during Jersy week?

I've been to Disney during each possible season, the most recent was my trip this year during Jersey Week, which was a first for my family. We had a blast, crowds were fairly low and the weather was perfect. Since most schools close at the end of the week the predictions I read said that Jersey Week really doesn't start until Wednesday or Thursday of the week, which was spot on. The later into the week we got the more crowded the parks became, but even when they were busy they were still manageable.

I'm hoping to do the same trip next year!!

We've also been to Disney during different seasons. This November was our first time during Jersey week. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I thought the crowds were very manageable and I wouldn't hesitate to return during that week again.

I think it varies from year to year. This year I have heard of lower than average crowds during Jersey week. Three years ago, we hit Jersey week and it was significantly busier than the few weeks before or after.

Jersey Week is more crowded on years when Veterans Day is the same week, especially when Veterans Day ties in with a weekend. You get more non Jersey folks during Jersey week when this happens. This year Veterans day was the Wednesday after Jersey Week...so less crowded.

We were there this year - didn't notice a big spike in crowds, just a bigger proportion of people that talked funny.
