November at Disney World enjoys mild temperatures and crowds that vary from light to very busy.

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

Be sure to check the forecast before your trip, but you should likely plan on wearing layers to adjust to changing temps throughout the day.

Explanation of park recommendations and abbreviations below
In general, I recommend avoiding parks with Extra Magic Hours because they tend to be the busiest parks that day. Animal Kingdom is an exception because it's usually not too bad, even on EMH days.Magic Kingdom usually sees a surge on Saturdays, so other parks are usually a better choice.MK = Magic Kingdom, EP = Epcot, HS = Hollywood Studios, AK = Animal Kingdom,
TL = Typhoon Lagoon, BB = Blizzard Beach, EMH = Extra Magic Hour
What the dates in each day of the calendar mean
(click the + sign beside each date to add it to your calendar):

When offsite guests can start making FastPass+ reservations
Park colors:
Suggested park

Park hours for people visiting in November at Disney World usually come out in mid-April.

Trip planning checklist

April or earlier: book your hotel, make your daily plans and choose dining optionsMay or early June: 180 days before your trip begins, make dining reservations (website is available at 6 a.m. eastern, phone lines are open at 7 a.m. Eastern). Use the dates on the calendar to show you when to do that. ☑ July - September: book flights (tips on finding best flights) ☑ September or early October: if you're staying onsite, you can start making FastPass+ reservations 60 days before your trip begins. Use dates on the calendar to see when you can start making FP+ reservations online beginning at 7 a.m. eastern time. You can also check in online for your resort room if you'd like. ☑ October or earlier: set up Magical Express, purchase Memory Maker and order groceriesNovember: pack (packing list to help you) and go to Disney World! ☑ December: finalize PhotoPass pics and order within 45 days after your trip
