November visits

This is my first post (hopefully I have done this correctly) wondering if anyone has traveled to Disney the second week in November. Curious if it was crowded and is it still warm enough for pool time? Normally we always go in late September and do the MNSS but hoping for some Christmas Mickey this next time. Thanks for any advice!!!

Hi!

We go to WDW pretty much every November, and are generally there the first two weeks. Weather is great then-warm during the day and much cooler at night. For swimming, you may want to stick to daytime.

Have a great trip!

The second week will be more crowded than the third week of November. There is jersey week, veterans day, and food and wine festival (which ends on the 10th). It won't be neary as bad as Thanksgiving week though. Hope this helps, have a safe and fun trip.

Agree with PPs on all accounts. The second week of November will see moderate crowds due to F&W, the marathon, Veteran's Day, and Jersey Week. It will still be tolerable though.

Weather has been hit or miss for us in November. Last time, most of our week was in the upper 70s and overcast with some showers on some days. We did get one pool day in when it was sunny and in the 80s. We wore t-shirts and shorts during the day, but usually threw a hoodie on when going out at night.

I usually go over Veteran's Day weekend and it is busier as PP have posted. This year I decided to push things back a week as the air was a little cheaper for the flights I wanted and there was more room availability at OKW.

Oh no!! I thought Jersey week was the week prior? Am I wrong? We are going the second week in November 9-15. All the crowd calendars say around level 4. I chose this week to go because my kids get Monday and Tuesday off so they will only be missing 3 days of school. We went the last week in November on our previous trip and the crowds were awesome. Our longest wait was probably 20 minutes. Now I'm panicked that I have chosen the wrong week. A friend recommended this week because she had gone and said it wasn't crowded at all. I'm really worried now!

Your week overlaps with Jersey Week. The Jersey conferences are 11/6 and 11/7 I believe, so Jersey families will either travel that week or the following week. Since it overlaps Veteran's Day (11/11), than can make for higher than usual crowds as well. But FWIW, I wouldn't worry about it being crowded - it draws moderate crowds, but its not crowded by any means.

It will be busy the 9th and 10th for sure. Lots going on. The rest if the week should be ok.
