    When exactly do the Thanksgiving crowds come in? We are leaving WDW next year on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. I am hoping that other than the last day or two, we will beat the holiday crowds. Am I being overly optomistic?

    We just got back today. We arrived last Wednesday. Crowd levels started off very low. I would say the worst was yesterday. We were at Epcot for 11:00ish and fast passes for Soarin were for 8:55-9:55. We ended up leaving Epcot in the evening and headed to Downtown Disney for a little shopping. Lots of people there too. We went to Universal on Tuesday and it was wall to wall people. So just prepare yourself for big crowd levels. However, we just rolled with it all and we did well.
    A couple of strollers clipped our heels, and we just moved out of the way. We had free dining and had a load of snack credits left so when our anxiety level would rise, we would stop and eat. I think I gained 10 pounds just in Epcot yesterday :(
