I've gone the weekend before thanksgiving and it wasn't too bad. I would recommend checking out the crowd calendar predictions on touring plans.com to see what's best for you. Friends of ours went the week after thanksgiving and the crowds weren't too bad either. I haven't seen any November pin offers yet and some have said the earliest offers usually come in March. general discounts for that time of year won't come for a while- sometime in the summer. Mousesavers has some really good historical info on when discounts have been released in the past.
