    So I am planning on a trip next year, have heard wonderful things about the Halloween celebration and Christmas, but was wondering what everyone thinks of a Thanksgiving there! I wonder about the crowds, cost,places to have a nice Thanksgiving meal etc. Anyone with advice or been during that time?

    This is our normal time to visit, and will be there again this year. We have also been in October, December, January, March and July.

    I will say that the weather is very nice, though we have always done a lot more swimming in October than we have in November. During Thanksgiving you can enjoy the beginning of the Christmas celebrations. The negative is the crowd levels. Wednesday through Saturday of that week is crazy crowded. You will need a good touring plan if you will be visiting during that time. You will need to make dining reservations at the 180 day mark for your favorite Thanksgiving meal.

    9 or 10 on the 1-10 scale. If crowds are something you would want to stay away from, October would be better than Thanksgiving. There is also food and wine festival in October to enjoy as well as MNSSHP.

    Anytime at Disney is great but would really enjoy Thanksgiving with all the trimmings.
