novemberheader 1 600x400 - November at Disney World in 2016

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
