Is Disney World Busy in November?

 

As you can see from the November Disney World crowd calendar below, this month has a mix of crowded and not so crowded days.

 

Crowd Calendar for Disney World in November

 

Crowds during the week will be great, with more people visiting on the weekends. But, then you get to the week of Thanksgiving.

 

There is no way around it. That week is SUPER BUSY. That being said, it can still be magical. Imagine spending the Thanksgiving holiday with your family at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

 

Don’t let the crowds scare you away though. If you plan ahead and utilize the FastPass+ System and Advanced Dining Reservations, you will have a great time!

How to Beat the Crowds at Disney World in November

 

FastPass+ System

 

Disney knows that there will be crowds at Disney World and has come up with ways to help you spend less time waiting in line.

 

The FastPass+ System is available to all park guests and allows you to “skip to the front of the line” at many attractions with a little pre-planning.

 

Guests staying at one of the many Disney World resort hotels are able to make FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance of their vacation.

Park guests who are planning to stay at a hotel not on Disney property can make reservations 30 days in advance of their vacation.

 

You can make FastPass+ reservations online or through the My Disney Experience app

 

Advance Dining Reservations (ADR’s)

 

Table service restaurants at Disney World can fill up quickly and it is rare that you can just show up and expect to get a table.

 

What are the Best Character Meals at Disney World?

 

Disney allows anyone, whether staying on property or not, to make dining reservations 180 days before travel.

 

These reservations are called Advance Dining Reservations or ADR’s.

 

Is the Disney Dining Plan Worth the Money?

 

Planning ahead and making your dining reservations as soon as you can will help you to enjoy your favorite meals and beat the crowds!

Rider Switch

 

Another way to beat the crowds is to use Rider Switch if you are traveling with small children.

 

 

 

Rider Switch is designed for guests who are visiting the parks with a child that is too small or may not want to ride certain attractions.

 

One adult can sit out with that child while the other adult goes on the ride.

 

When the adult who rode the ride is done, the other adult can then ride with up to two guests without waiting in the stand-by line!

Pack Rain Gear

 

The weather in Orlando can be very unpredictable. Rain storms can form and dissipate quickly.

Be prepared with a travel umbrella or a disposable rain poncho. 

 

Ponchos can also come in handy to wear on rides like Kali River Rapids or Splash Mountain to keep your clothes nice and dry!

If you will have a stroller with you at Disney world, you can purchase a universal stroller cover from Amazon, or bring a plastic shower curtain liner from the dollar store.

 

Here’s an inexpensive stroller cover I found on Amazon!

 

You can secure the shower curtain liner with clothes pins to keep it in place and your stroller will stay dry while you are watching a show or riding an attraction.

 

Works like a champ!

 

Pack Sun Screen

 

The Florida sun can be brutal, even in November. Be ready for the UV rays by packing some sunscreen and a hat!

 

I found this cute hat on Amazon!

 

Also, make sure your kids are protected too. Nothing ruins a magical vacation like a sunburn!

 

Pack a Travel Blanket

 

I like to bring along a travel blanket to Disney World in November. I use it to cover my son’s stroller while napping.

 

It can also be used to sit on while watching a parade or fireworks show!

Pack for Daytime Warm Weather and Nighttime Cool Weather

 

I like to be prepared at Disney in November by wearing leggings, a cute Disney t-shirt, and bringing along a jacket or sweatshirt for the early morning and evening when the temperature drops.

 

I love this Minnie Mouse Hoodie!

 

Pack Adorable Disney Apparel

 

Before any Disney vacation, I like to check out Jane for adorable Disney-themed shirts for myself and my family! There is usually a selection of cute shirts for only $13.99!

 

Daily Boutique Deals

 

Just head to Jane.com and type character or vacation in the search bar and all of the cute items will show up.

How to Save Money on Disney World Tickets & Hotels

 

I am always looking for ways to save money on Disney World vacations. When I save money, that equals for trips!

 

There are not many ways to save on Disney World tickets, but there are if you know where to look.

 

There are a few Disney authorized ticket sellers, my favorite of which is Get Away Today. My family has been booking vacations with them for over 20 years, so I know they are the real deal.

Not only can they hook you up with discount Disney World tickets, you can also save on vacation packages when you book a hotel and tickets together.

 

Another great perk is their customer service! When you book a Disney World vacation package with Get Away Today, they can also make dining and FastPass+ reservations for you! Trust me, that service will take so much stress out of your vacation planning.

 

Visit www.getawaytoday.com or give them a call at 855-GET-AWAY for current deals at Walt Disney World. Don’t forget to mention that the Mommy Mouse Clubhouse sent you!
