I'm sorry I have no answer to your question - but this is the second time I've seen that designation and it raises a question from me. What is Jersey Week?

I've been going to Disney for 27 years and I've never heard of that time allocation. Thank you for helping alleviate my ignorance.

Jersey week is when the teachers have a few days off for a state conference I believe and it is a nice opportunity for those families to pull the kids out of school for the week and take a nice vacation!!

Thank you for the info.

I have been at WDW in November a few times and agree the weather is perfect, when I was there the crowds weren't bad - have a great trip.

Don't worry...you're missing Jersey Week. This year it's the first week in November.

Have fun!

We have been during Jersey week several years ago and while it is beautiful weather and the crowds are not near holiday levels it is surprising how one small state can add such a big impact on crowd levels!!! You will be fine but don't go in expecting to walk on attractions...

This will be our fourth time going during Jersery Week and we have never had a problem. We love going in early Nov, the weather has always been great, we find the crowds to be very managable we won't go at any other time.

We will be there that week also and I think it will be great. It's WDW so there is always going to be alot of people I'm just hoping not crazy amounts. Oh by the way our school district is also of for three days that week for parent/teacher conferences and I know it'sjust one district in Illinois but we have over 8,000 kids in it, so if many have the same idea we do you may see alot of people from the Chicago suburbs.

You are missing Jersey Week, but even if you were going during that time, there are no real crowds to speak of. A slight increase on Thursday - Saturday of that week, but nothing huge.

Hi op

Our local jersey shore school district is closed from 11/2/2009-11/6/2009 for election day and teachers convention, otherwise known as jersey week. You should be safe. have a great trip.

We usually go during Jersey week. It really is fairly busy especially at EPCOT as it is also the last week of the Food and Wine Festival. The other parks are not as bad, but EPCOT is absolutely packed. Since you are there the week after Jersey Week the crowds are noticably lower.
