The plan would be to avoid MK at all costs!!!!!!!!

I was thinking about going to Epcot that day, but AK would probably be an excellent choice, too. I'll be watching the Thanksgiving crowd predictions to see what will be the least crowded parks.

You bet, and it is 27 days until opening... Yes, I get my fox sports Detroit updates even here in CT

We've been at wdw 3 of the last 4 Thanksgiving weeks...it is practically a 9 or 10 the whole week until the Sunday after thanksgiving. We didn't have any issues, as we knew what to expect, and pretty much went with the flow. It got us ready for the crazy crowds when we went with the band the week between Christmas and New Years and helped us say, yes we can go for 10 days around the 4th of July... something I never thought I would say! Have fun planning

Maybe a day at FTW might be nice. You could walk over to TE and take a trail ride or rent some bikes or maybe a Sea Raycer

We were at FtW for the first time ever for HDDR. I love it over there. I've always been in love with the woods. It probably has something to do with happy childhood memories of staying at grandma's cabin in the woods. Anyway, I tried to get DH over there a second time last month by getting an ADR at Trail's End. The morning of the reservation he told me he didn't want to go there and I had to cancel it. But maybe I can try again next trip.

Thanks for letting me know about Thanksgiving weekend. That will be nice if Sunday clears out a little. It will also help knowing ahead of time that we'll have to deal with crowds. We weren't expecting the crowds when we went last month, I guess Disney was surprised, too. All those plans I had made expecting low crowds just went to waste. This time I'll be prepared.

I think if I can finally get DH to go there, he will like it. He just hates chicken, so I have to get around that issue.

Kathy! That's great and I'd be happy to add you. You're going to love all the decorations. Are you in a one bedroom? VWL will be sooooo cozy for December





Now, why no captions, Lodgers?! They just announced a winter storm warning here for midnight till 0300 THURSDAY... So I should have plenty of time to come up with something

DH loves those ribs, too and declared them the best on-property and I read your post as if Homer Simpson was saying it...

What's also GREAT is the pulled pork Eggs Benedict in the breakfast buffet:





And the Sticky Bun sundae:
