    I have the day before Thanksgiving off and I am an AP. My friend came up with the idea going to Epcot. Are we crazy? We are able to get fast passes and dining reservations so how bad can it be right?

    Thoughts?

    We are within an hour. Just wondering if the crowds levels would be too unbearable to have fun.

    I would do it. We were in EP on Christmas day 2015 and, honestly, it really wasn't that bad (MK, that week, was a DIFFERENT story altogether!). Book your FP+, get an ADR and enjoy the rest.

    All parks are predicted to be a level 10, but if you're up for that....SURE! We leave the day before that, so you can have our spot! :jumping1:

    Is your friend an AP also? If so, why not? Cost you nothing but food for the day. Epcot is the one park that if its crazy crowded, you can still get your 3 FP and enjoy the World Showcase. Probably still get low waits on a few other rides.

    Agree with above. You are crazy, but yeah sure, do it. You know it will be crowded, but you can also prepare for it.
    If all else fails...people watch.

    You have an AP and can go any time so there’s really nothing to lose. Guess I don’t see what’s crazy about it?

    We are going to be there that week. We will be at MK on Wednesday. You are not crazy. If there are crowds, then it makes you appreciate the atmosphere, scenery, and less popular rides. Slow down, smell the churros, and all that:D

    It will be crowded, but if you have the right attitude it will be a whole lot of fun.

    Why not? If you have an AP you will not need to "do everything" so the pressure is off. If you are okay with the crowds, go for it!

    I might avoid MK, but what better way to spend a day than at the World?

    With APs, FPs booked, and an ADR...I wouldn't even hesitate. I did the same thing for Thanksgiving day, when I lived nearby, and it really wasn't nearly as bad as I expected. Have fun!
