Thanksgiving crowds

Has anyone ever visited during Thanksgiving week? Is it an express pass needed time? and, is the weather usually nice that time of the year?

we will be there about 5 or 6 days. so, is it doable without the express passes?

Yes it is doable w/o exp pass if you are going for 5 or more days. Tour early and late to avoid queues and hit shows and non rides during peak hours. If you are finding it too much you can buy exp pass for 1day in park. I have done Easter twice both with and w/o exp pass. Single rider really helps also.
