Anyone have a guess as to how crowded this park will be the day after Thanksgiving? Hopefully everyone will be out shopping... Thanks upfront for any input, especially if its based on experience.:)

Years ago Christmas at the parks used to be a very quiet day
People seemed to avoid them in favor of family get togethers I assumed. No more. Now its a nightmare day of overcrowding - no fun for anyone!

I don't know if Thanksgiving is the same as it isn't as big of a holiday but I'd bet it's a high attendance day.

The problem is that Thanksgiving weekend is a major 4-day school break. Thus, its a peak weekend for out-of-town visitors more interested in dragging their rug rats to Hogwarts than in local shopping (with the attendant luggage fees).

The advice I've seen for high-crowd days is to be at the entrance at least 15 minutes before opening and do as many high-priorty items as possible before the unwashed masses show up at mid-morning.

have a look at how much the express pass costs...on higher attendance days they tend to charge more. I had a look at it seems to be a higher price for Friday....again no guarantee, but I would think its a busy day regardless since Thanksgiving week is a busy vacation week.

Thanks

I've been afraid of that... I will look at the Expresspass prices.

You can not use the Express Pass on the Forbidden Journey in Harry Potter's World. I think it's good on everything else on the Islands side.
