Make Sure To Pack Your PATIENCE If You’re Headed to Disney World Any Time Soon

With Thanksgiving just a few short days away, the holiday season is getting kicked into high gear.

Holidays in Magic Kingdom

With the holiday season comes dense CROWDS, as folks are headed to the parks to celebrate. On November 20th, we saw these crowds show up in full force. Genie+ was at the record-high price of $35, and STILL sold out for Magic Kingdom and for the Multi-Park option. Oh, and Park Pass Reservations filled up for Magic Kingdom. After heading into the park the morning of November 20th, we found out just how REAL those crowds were. 

Here’s what a sold-out Magic Kingdom looks like on the Monday before Thanksgiving!

First up, we saw the crowds as soon as we arrived to the park.

November 20th — It was a very busy morning!

Once we entered, Main Street, U.S.A. was also pretty packed. Typical for this time of year, though!

A very crowded Main Street!

Over in Tomorrowland, it was also pretty packed.


Here’s a look at the crowds inside Cosmic Ray’s:

In Liberty Square, we saw some dense crowds as we waited for the parade.

In Adventureland, this was the Lightning Lane for Jungle Cruise. Stand-by was posting a 105-minute wait.


For the stage show near Cinderella Castle, there were also pretty dense crowds.
