Is Disney World Busier At Thanksgiving Or Christmas?

If you’re planning a last-minute holiday trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth, you might be asking which is busier: Thanksgiving or Christmas at Disney World?

The simple answer is: they are both incredibly busy times of year for Disney Parks.

But Christmas does seem to have the slight edge when it comes to crowds: the busiest week of the year is the week of Christmas.

If you are trying to choose between the two, we’d suggest trying for a Disney World Thanksgiving over a Disney World Christmas.

Both will give you incredible holiday decorations and experiences (like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party) but Thanksgiving will be a little bit less crowded. And we do mean a little bit!
