    As of last year, it was pretty freakin crowded! We ended up going to Downtown Disney for the day. And the crowds started getting "robust" later that day too.

    Thanksgiving weekend is always nutty, not capacity crowds but packed.

    The following weekend should be peaceful. 1 being low, 10 high, Friday around 4, Saturday around 4 and Sunday 3.
    AK being low all 3 days the weekend after Thanksgiving.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Well we gave it a shot Saturday. Not terrible, more crowded than usual but bearable at the Magic Kingdom. The worst part was actually Orlando traffic. The Osborn lights were extremely crowded as we were leaving the Studios so I'd suggest everyone wanting to see them get to the park right before sundown if you want enjoy the lights without feeling like you're part of a herd of cattle.
