Specifically, the Magic Kingdom. We’re taking the Firebug there for two days either over the preceding weekend, or during the early part of the week before Thanksgiving. Our goal is to have the lightest possible crowds to fight.
Thanksgiving is on Thursday, November 22. Our choices are:
a) Saturday and Sunday, 11/17-18
b) Sunday and Monday, 11/18-19
c) Monday and Tuesday, 11/19-20
d) Tuesday and Wednesday, 11/20-21
The online info I’ve been able to Google tells me that Thanksgiving itself is crowded, but the earlier part of the week is more moderate. And in general, weekends are more crowded than weekdays, and the most crowded days of the week are Saturday, Monday, and Thursday.
But none of that tells me whether the weekend before Thanksgiving is more crowded or less crowded than early in Thanksgiving week.
Anybody got any inside scoop here, or have superior Google-Fu? We’d like to go ahead and book airfares, rental cars, and hotels now, before those things get too expensive.
