    WDW in November

    We are going to WDW for the Thanksgiving Weekend. I was curious as to whether any attractions are closed for refurb as well as when the Christmas decorations are put up? Any other suggestions as far as temperatures to expect or special events to attend would be appreciated. I am looking forward to seeing the "Main Street Electrical Parade". I have not seen it since back in the 80's. My children have never seen it or Captain EO. We will have a great time !! We were there last year from Dec 26 until Jan 2 and then back in March for a week. We purchased Annual passes and they expire on Dec 26, so we are trying to get another trip out of them before they expire. Two daughters in college and a son in High School so it may be a while before we get to come back !! Love every minute we are at Disney. We have been every year for the last 5 years. People think we are crazy and we are....about Disney !!

    Thanks for any suggestions !!

    Re: WDW in November

    I love WDW in November but the weekend of Thanksgiving you're definitely going to have to prepare for some crowds.

    There's a lot going on over in Fantasyland right now. Pooh's Spot is closed. The Pooh ride is closed for refurb. The Mad Tea Party should be reopen by the time you go though.

    Star Tours at DHS is closed.

    Other than that you shouldn't have any closures (other than those due to an issue that are unplanned etc.).

    The temps are awesome this time of year. Look for highs in the low 80's and lows in the high 50s.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    I just returned home from Disney on Sunday and a lot of Christmas decorations were already put up. Osborne lights started on Monday so make sure you see them! Everything should be in full swing for Christmas by the time you get there.

    Have a great trip. Since you have been to WDW during Chirstmas week, you shouldn't be surprised by the crowds.
