I would think the weekend before would be better than the weekend of thanksgiving   Any weekend there is an event is packed
I know it's frustrating, but the crowd levels have shifted considerably in the last couple of years--so much so that it seems like even people who visit several times a week are caught off guard sometimes.  It will be crowded both weekends (run weekends are always busy and many schools take the whole week off for Thanksgiving).  I am not sure that there's any way to know exactly which one will be worse--I wish I had better answers for you!  We have started going into every trip with the mindset that it will just be crowded and we have worked out ways to circumvent the busiest times in the parks, in order to make the most of our days.  Arrive at rope drop, and go on all your "must-do attractions in the first few hours. Take a break midday, and come back to have dinner and watch a show, and maybe try to get a few fast passes.  When things feel awful, sit down and have a cup of tea/coffee or hop on the train and circle around to regroup.  Good luck!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  529.3 #331 3:40PM
Oh, also: take note of when parades and shows are going to be ending, and plan on avoiding those areas until things calm down.  Fireworks from IASW are lovely, and if you jet over to the Toontown train station as they end, it's a much less stressful situation than trying to walk through the Hub.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  529.3 #331 3:42PM
That was very helpful, thank you!  - LennaH  143.3 #2664 3:58PM
You're welcome!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  529.3 #331 4:17PM
And keep to the right, hang on yo each other and walk briskly with the crowds, using shortcuts whenever you can. And if it gets too crowded, sit away from the crowd and let one person be your runner for fast passes and food!  If all law fails, go to a show or dinner! - secretagentangel  1249.7 #101 10:45PM
Sorry I would edit but sometimes it seems like there aren't any laws in crowds!! - secretagentangel  1249.7 #101 10:46PM
Oh yes the keep to the right, walk single file, and pass on the left is so important!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  529.3 #331 10:48PM

We went last year on Sunday during T- weekend. I remember how empty is seemed and we were surprised about no crowd. - Sleepingbeautysmom  294.3 #830 10:37PM
That's the great thing about going into a trip expecting crowds: it feels like such a treat if it ends up the crowds are light!  Win-win.  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  529.3 #331 10:50PM

If anyone knows, I would love the info, too. LAX is always the cheaper flight, but the ground transportation part has been less than magical.

I have used DLR express from John Wayne without issues.  I plan on using in next month too. I hope this provides a little help - MermaidHunter  61.6 #4009 2:47PM

I have used them for transportation round trip from LAX for our last 3 trips to DL. I love them. It's easy to catch at the airport and have always been on time picking us up to return to the airport.  The experience has been hassle free and I definatly recommend. - Nikkia2020  7.2 #11468 9:56PM

I 'think' we will be there, #1daughter, grandson and me, but if #2 daughter gets job she's up for she might come as well.  Can I call that an RSVP?
We will probably send out the discounted link on Monday since we have to compile the emails and send it out to everyone on the list. Thanks! - Admin 12:06PM
@@@admin is this to rsvp for the main event or to get discounted ticket, sorry for the confusion - pikarich  2742.2 #35 3:14PM

You actually need to RSVP for the Birthday Bash to get the discounted ticket link--since Disney requires those who purchase the discounted tickets to attend our event. - Admin  3:17PM

Go early, go often!  Christmas time is sooo nice at the parks!  Look for the candy cane schedule. You will think its outrageous to queue up and pay so much for a candy cane, right up until you bite in!  And you get to watch them being made!

If you use pre 1987 pennies they hold up better. The zinc centers in the newer pennies are soft.  You can polish them perfectly by putting in a pan on water with a sheet of foil and a spoonful of baking soda. Heat till clean.  Later dry and coat with clear nail polish   Collect them all !

I'm trying to figure it out , too.  We went Labor Day of 1955 and again in 1961?  My Dad keeps his old pictures in cardboard boxes, loose.  I was hoping someone might be able to guess. The ones with fake raggedy edges I know are from  1955. Then I have some square and some rectangular ones that could be either trip

Yeah, I remember when we first got APs there was a quarterly magazine, then it went digital, and now I guess it's gone away. We are all signed up for emails, but the only ones I get are when my pass is due for renewal.  Disney knows we all are there as often as we can be anyway.8-)
Yeah, we are also from NorCal and we have had APs off and on for 6 or 7 years now, and we rarely are notified of anything.  Off the top of my head, I think the only thing was the previews of Star Tours and Little Mermaid in 2011.  Our APs are registered, email addresses are entered, addresses are correct, everything is current...I don't know what the deal is.  You are not alone, though!  I just read message boards, like MW (especially here, when things are announced, people post about them immediately).   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  529.3 #331 8:45PM
