We've gone at Thanksgiving several years in a row, and usually fly in on Thanksgiving or the Wednesday before and stay through either Tuesday or Wednesday of the following week. Flights are cheap (especially on Thanksgiving) and while it's quite busy through the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the parks have been well staffed and things really clear out and give us a few quite manageable days from Sunday on. It was our plan to do that again this year, but my husband may have some conflicts at work for the Mon-Tue following Thanksgiving, so we are now looking at going from the Saturday before to the Saturday after (11/23-11/30). My sense is that the days leading up to Thanksgiving are quite busy, but I haven't paid too much attention to things thinking we'd never have to go then. I also feel like flights might be ridiculous. Any experience from anyone whose gone in the beginning of Thanksgiving week? I can get the resort room/tickets for the same price, so that's not an issue, and our daughter will miss two days of high school either way. Thanks!
