Best time to go?

We booked our trip yesterday to WDW for Nov 3-9. Maybe I'm just second guessing myself because I've wanted to go forever, but I can't help but think that maybe the first part of December might be a better time to go if crowds will be lower.

Will this make a big difference? Is it possible to even change the reservation without a fee?

We would really like to go when the crowds are lower and our schedule is flexible so I want to pick the best time.

I gone to WDW twice just after Thanksgiving, got the on Thanksgiving day both time and the crowds were bad until Sunday, then it was like everyone disappeared.

But, the MK parade is filmed the first weekend in December, so MK is a pain in the BUTT on those days. But, the other parks are usually OKAY!!!

Also, if you booked through Disney you can change your dates without a problem. I've done it a few times and they are great about it as long as its months out.

Welcome!!! I've been to the world a fews years back around the same time you are going and it was really nice. Most of the ride were no more than a 5 min wait. However the more popular ride, lEverest, the Magic Kingdom Mountains, TOT, TSMM, Test Track and RNRC, oh and Soarin still had a wait. But they weren't bad.
