This is what we’re looking at for November. Click to enlarge or view as a prettier PDF. And if you don’t know what the numbers/letters mean, read the top of this post. The full operating schedule is available here.
This preliminary calendar is “more preliminary” than usual as I have yet to receive expected attendance numbers for the month (thus the delay…). They should be available by Monday, but I am not expecting any significant changes to the numbers or recommendations.
November is relatively straightforward, though there are two bottlenecks. The first is the weekend of the 7th to 10th with Veterans Day, the Wine and Dine Half Marathon, and the culmination of “Jersey Week,” or the weekend where all New Jersey public schools get the Thursday/Friday of that week off. The second is Thanksgiving, which sees crowds similar to much of spring break. Otherwise, the Epcot Food and Wine Festival continues to attract the Tampa crowd through the 10th. After that, things are quiet through the Sunday of Thanksgiving week. The week before Thanksgiving is one of the best weeks of the year to visit with low international visitation, warm temperatures and cool evenings, and low overall crowds.
