My family of 4 typically hit WDW in mid-October (during my teacher wife’s fall break), but I had the bright idea to delay by a few weeks this year, pull the kids out of school after the election day holidays and go in early November. “The crowds will be even lower”, I thought. I have since become aware of something called Jersey Week.
I find wildly diverging opinions on the impact of JW from sites/forums I typically trust. Some make JW sound like World War III w/ we’ll need to bring mace to ward off the crowds and we’ll have to scavenge for food. Other sites make it sound like it’ll just be slight uptick in the normal November crowds. The Crowd Tracker at this site paints a very rosy picture, but page that aggregates holidays and seasons predicts twice the normal crowd size.
When we go in October, the parks feel about 60-70% full (EPCOT maybe a little worse). What are we talking about for Jersey Week?
We’ll be there Nov. 3-9.
Thanks for any feedback!
