    Thanksgiving Crowds?

    I was planning to go to Disneyland around Thanksgiving time and was wondering how crowded it would be Mon 21st-Thurs23rd?
    Which would be my best day to go with the least crowds?
    The 14th to 18th is open too but i would prefer to go 21st-23rd. I heard it gets busy the week of thanksgiving, if its too busy i would opt for the week before.

    In for answers on this...
    397 or 406 miles too far from DLR, depending on who you ask...

    According to Disney World | Disneyland - Vacation Planning Tools, which is really great and you should definitely consider investing in before planning your next trip, the resort will be pretty busy (10/10) during that week and the following weekend. Monday will only be a slight bit less full, but if the week before is an option, definitely do that. The two weeks will be near opposites in terms of business. The Christmas season starts the week before, on the 14th, as well.

    This.

    Seriously, busy times are no longer affected by vacationers as much as they are by the whims and fancies of hundreds of thousands of locals who hold passes.

    Nowadays, you're as likely to find a packed park on a mid-November evening as you are on a 4th of July weekend afternoon.

    Just go expecting crushing crowds, and consider it gravy if those crowds don't materialize

    I would recommend the week after Thanksgiving. It`s after the crush and before the Candlelight Processional crowd. We found it less crowded.

    Totally agree with that and the operating hours on the calendar is always a good indicator of what the Resort is expecting for crowd levels. One of these years I'm going to try visiting during that week........hmmm maybe this year......:
