OK so getting our 2021 redo trip planned…cancelled 2020 but I’m thinking positively this year lol. This is all provided the course of the pandemic and vaccinations go in the right direction and we end up going which I think we will, as we are moving to the Disney area in about 10 weeks, so no air travel involved (not that I don’t think air travel will be safe then/is now, that was just personally part of our reasoning for canceling 2020).
We typically go the week after Thanksgiving…holiday magic, Thanksgiving crowds drop-off that week since kids back at school etc…we like going not during the school breaks. We’ve also gone early December, 1st or 2nd week before Christmas holiday crowds, also magical. Only drawback IMO, is the Pop Warner event the first week of December. I realize they stay at the AS resorts typically so only those are overrun, but we have seen lots of giant groups of loud, unsupervised teams/teens/cheer squads in the parks and decided the last time we encountered that week we’d prefer to avoid it in the future. (No offense to teens, we have 1 and one almost teen lol, giant groups of them are just not what I prefer on our magical vacation . )
That said - with PW moving to that other place lol…would you suggest we stick with week after Thanksgiving or first week of December now?! Going to look at the crowd calendar as well.
