The Thanksgiving Trip Plans!

Joe and I are planning a Thanksgiving visit to WDW- woo! I'm so looking forward to seeing the Christmas decorations Santa

Plans right now have us driving over late Wednesday morning and coming back Saturday morning. We'll stay off property in Celebration.

Here's what I have lined up so far:

Wednesday
Hollywood Studios with the following evening FPs: TSMM, ToT and RnR Coaster. I'll keep trying for Slinky Dog

Thursday
Happy Thanksgiving! Headed to MK with morning FPs for Haunted Mansion, PoTC and 7 Dwarves. Afternoon and evening plans tbd depending on crowds. I think it would be fun to.watch the evening fireworks at MK though.

Friday
Animal Kingdom in the morning with FPs for Navi River Jouirney, Everest and Safari. I wanted to do Navi again because we only did it once and it was late so I really don't remember much other than i wouldn't do standby for it but would with a FP. And I can't get FOP. Though I'll keep trying biggrin

I know we will work in Epcot somewhere. And I want to check out some of the resorts.

Anyone been on Thanksgiving Day? I think it will be fun and crazy and memorable laugh

And despite the fact that 80% of our stuff has been packed and in boxes since last January, until our new house is completed next month, I did manage to find these 2 beauties, which I will absolutely wear when we go!

Love the hats! I haven't been on Thanksgiving, but I have always been curious as to how the crowds are. I can't wait to hear what you think.

We haven't been on Thanksgiving but we have been on 4th of July and didn't think it was THAT bad. As long as you go in with a plan, expect high crowds, and pack your patience, I'm sure you guys will have an awesome time!

Exactly! We will make it fun regardless.

I did go ahead and get a 7:15 dinner ADR for Yak & Yet on Thanksgiving Day - was really the only thing I could find on short notice that I know we both would like and was not too early or way too late at night to eat for us.

I figure after we are done we can either hang out in AK until it closes at 9 pm, or we can drive over to the TTC and get to MK and catch the 10 pm fireworks. Or head to the boardwalk for a nice stroll.

Kristen, I've read so many varying comments about TG crowds that I just stopped reading and decide we will just go.in expecting a rather hectic day and just make the best of it! Apparently everyone has an opinion and definition of crowded and crazy. Ha!

We did T'day one year but we went totally off the books, nothing traditional

Lunch at Beaches and Cream, La Nouba (RIP) and the Food Trucks for Dinner. It was a really great day!
