November at Disney World enjoys mild temperatures and relatively light crowds for 3/4 of the month.

If you time your visit to Disney World just right, you could actually see both the Halloween and Christmas decorations which are switched over during the first week of November.

Right after the first week of November is the week informally known as "Jersey Week" which is when lots of people in New Jersey visit due to a school vacation.

Some tips for traveling in November:

  • Although most people think low crowds = less planning, 1 thing that is more important to plan during lower crowds is figuring out the best park for each day of your trip. During busy times, the crowds are spread more evenly across the parks since nighttime entertainment is offered nightly. When traveling in November, you should pay special attention to the best/worst parks chart (linked in the upper right of this page) to avoid the busiest crowds.
  • Take a jacket in case morning and evening temps dip down a bit too low for you.
