Topic: Crowd Estimates for Thanksgiving Week?

Tue 11/13/2012 11:00a
Anyone have the numbers? I want to know which ones would be the least crowded to go. I'm looking at 11/24 cause all the APs are blocked out.
Is Mon/Tues ok even though no blockout?

In the 80s/90s, it would be super crowded on Thanksgiving day and the Fri/Sat afterwards, but I've heard that it's no longer the case due to APs.

I'd like to know, too.
I'm there next Mon-Wed, so this is important to me.

It's now the complete opposite of the long-standing trends of the 20th century.

The days leading up to Thanksgiving when the AP's are unblocked, Sunday-Wednesday, are the very busiest of the week and some of the busiest of the entire year.

Thanksgiving itself sees the crowds drop off noticeably, and the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving are much less crowded than the Monday-Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

Go on Thanksgiving, or the day after. Those are the least crowded days of the week, weather permitting.

actually, we went last year on the Tuesday. It was very busy, but not bad. It was quite acceptable.

Went on Wednesday (day before Thxgiving)from 8am to 1am (17 hour marathon). Wasn't too bad busy, but not packed. Got on 36 rides (11 of those were Splash- thanks to single rider and night time riding). Even saw the 9pm F!. Many of the fastpasses were only an hour ahead of getting the fps. Blue Bayou at noon was almost walkin.
