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.

 

Follow @MommyMouseClubhouse on Instagram!

 

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.

 

Advanced Dining Reservations

 

Table service restaurants at Disney World can fill up fast 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!

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

 

Rider Switch Pass from Disneyland

 

Rider Switch is designed for guests who are visiting with a child who 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 guest without waiting in the stand-by line!

Here are a few things you might want to consider packing if you’ll be traveling to Disney World in November.

 

Pack an Umbrella, Poncho, and Stroller Protection

 

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

Be prepared with a small 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 it over the stroller with clothes pins to keep it dry while you are watching a show or riding an attraction.

 

Works like a champ!

 

 Pack Sun Protection

 

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

 

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 used 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 and a t-shirt and bringing along a jacket for the early morning and nighttime when the temperature drops.
