Jersey week

We are heading down Nov 2-9. Do you know if the crowds will really be affected by Jersey week. We have come down the same week before and if doesn't seem like the crowds are that bad.

The issue is that Jersey week falls and the same time as the last week of Food and Wine, and the Wine & Dine Half Marathon weekend. I would avoid it at all costs.

I am hopeing the crowds are not too terrible as we will be there 11/3-8. Avoiding the weekend so I do think that should help as well as avoiding PM EMH @ Epcot.

We wanted to go to F&W but also need the cooler and less humid weather.

I am not too worried we have been at the height of Spring Break and Easter week many times and the Crowd Calendars are much lower for Jersey Week

I've been down during Jersey Week in the past and it is a coin toss. There have been years where it hasn't been all that bad, but if one of the other posters is correct and it falls within the last week of F&W I would avoid Epcot for sure at all costs, especially on the last weekend of F&W.

We are going the exact same dates that you are going. Maybe the following article will put your mind at ease. I can't believe the entire state of New Jersey will be coming to Disney.

We went last year and thought it was great. It was actually much more crowded when we went back 6 weeks later in January (all those tour groups, my gosh!) We're from Jersey and while we do know A LOT of people who vacation THAT specific week -- they don't ALL go to Disney. For instance, we are going to Jamaica this year

You'll be fine!

Plus the weekend carries over into Veteran's Day, which happens to fall on a Monday this year making it a long weekend. Because of that, it may be busier than usual.
