Are the walls down, and just the attractions not open except at certain times. We would be happy just seeing what these looked like when there in November, regardless of being able to go inside them?

That, I don't know. I saw some pics that looked like at least some walls were down, but they had a row of tall planters on wheels covering up the entrance area. Don't know if you can see beyond them or not, but I'm guessing you won't be able to enter past them.

BUT....I'm confused.....we are arriving on Nov 10th staying at POR until the 18th. We aren't planning to hit the parks until the 12th due to the crazy crowds that weekend. (I'm aware of all the activity going on that weekend, F&W, Veteran's Day,Jersey week, Golf tourney,etc.)

According to touringplans and easywdw, crowds look light/moderate most of the week. But, I was playing around on the WDW online reservation site and noticed all the resorts are booked, even mid-week. I asked a CM, but she had no information except that the resorts were full. Should we expect the parks to be packed? We often visit this time of year and the parks have been very manageable (never empty, but nice) .

Does anyone, maybe a CM reading this, have an explanation. There are even rooms available over Thanksgiving week still available and the parks are crazy full those days.

Thanks for any information
There is a big convention - officially at the Swan/Dolphin, but with something like 5000 attendees, plus their families. That could be part of the resort jam.

We arrive Nov. 12th but no Mickey Mail yet. We've got ADRs at Boma Nov. 13, Cinderella's RT on Nov. 14 and Chef Mickey Nov. 16, plus MVMCP on Nov. 15; still thinking we want to make more but not sure of our schedule. First time to WDW!

Man you get behind when you don't check in for a week. I love the Mickey shirts with the sharpies. My daughter would love making that. We are under 40 days now.

Still no Mickey Mail or ME tags.

Yesterday we had our amazing race for our church. We have a very nice sized youth group and had 14 teams with one team of 3 people. The kids had a blast as well as adults. I sign up to be a driver each year as they want the kids to be safe. I had to take DD with me and before we even made it out of the parking lot with ended up with my 5 yr old cousin in the car as well. They loved going along even though they didn't get to do the activities.

Between work, school, ladies volleyball(church), awana, and any other activies that pop up free time is getting hard to come by. I still need to plan our window decorarations. DD has to pick out what she wants since it is for her birthday. I see something pink and glittery in our future....lol

Looked through our Mickey Mail last night.

Those new luggage tags are AWESOME!

And while we did have it last time, we didn't take advantage of the game points for the arcade or mini golf because the girls were too young, but we're planning some resort time into the schedule this time so I think that will be cool.

My wife was inquiring about the spa discount too. Has anyone used their services and is it worth it?

Didn't make it round 2 for MP this week, but got my Mickey Mail yesterday. The thing I live most about Disney is that when you dream Disney dreams, you can never be sad for long! There is always something magical waiting for you
