    The day RIGHT AFTER Thankgsgiving, great, or forget it?

    Well, my dad and I were planning on taking a trip to Disneyland (Well, you know when now) and we were wondering if that was a good idea or not. We thought it wouldn't be too crowded since everyone's going home and/or shopping, but on the other hand, since it's the BIGGEST shopping day, we were worried if everyone was going there to shop and crowd the place up.

    All we know is that we have to go after Thanksgiving on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, can anyone please help?

    Many thanks to you

    Go Sunday, it's your only hope.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Forget it. There are enough people in SoCal (18 million +) for many to shop and 50K+ to go to DL.
    It's blocked out on Deluxe APs. That should tell you something.
    Goonie's right. Sunday would be the best bet. That's traveling day for tourists.

    Sunday would be you're best bet. It's extremely busy that Friday and Saturday isn't much better.

    Wrong. We went the friday after Thanksgiving a couple of years ago and couldn't believe the crowds - more people than we've ever seen in Disneyland. There was a 2+ hour queue just for Pirates of the Caribbean!

    It rained on the saturday morning, and we went back saturday afternoon and the park was empty - we could walk straight on just about any ride! People in SoCal are afraid of rain because it doesn't happen too often

    So note to self, go when raining.

    I still can't tell you how thankful I am for this. (we were also going to rendezvous with someone at the park as well, so I'll have to tell them too)

    I'll come to you guys again if I have anyone questions!

    Its nutso. I went once and never again. One of the worst days in the year, in my experience.

    Rainy days are great. I have gone several times as I see the clouds coming overhead.

    I can only imagine Disneyland to be packed on Thanksgiving day, too. Has anyone ever celebrated T-day down there? I bet you have to making dining arrangements way in advanced if you want a turkey dinner!

    Do they bring out any good holiday themed mdse out at this time? Or do they have it out on the parks before Halloween?

    Last year I went the Sunday after Thanksgiving and it wasn't very crowded at all. The weather was great and it helped get us in the holiday mood. We had such a good time that we're turning it into an official event. I definately recommend that day.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    ^^ By Thanksgiving the park is all decked out for Christmas. Usually the first Weekend in November is the first day of Holiday stuff.

    Yup. I wanted to wait 'til after Thanksgiving before switching into Thanksgiving mode, that's why we waited. (I wasn't quite so addicted to Disneyland back then )

    This makes me wonder why my parents plan our DL vacation always on Thankgiving weekend. So I'll be there this year. But the Christmas stuff is the big plus and if you go earlier in the morning, it's not that bad
