When is Pop Warner in 2013 at Walt Disney World?

POP WARNER WEEK AT DISNEY WORLD IN 2013
Pop Warner week is a real but largely trivial occurrence that traditionally happens at Walt Disney World in the first full week of December. (For more on both the real and the trivial issues associated with it, see this.)
In 2013, Pop Warner week will begin on December 7! Ignore the below, which is now out of date.
For 2013 I’ve forecast (based on the last 11 years of actual Pop Warner dates) that it will happen again the first full week of December—that is, the week starting Sunday, December 1, 2013.
I’ve received lots of questions about this forecast.
The issue is that with the very late Thanksgiving in 2013 (it’s November 28, as late as it can be) my forecast implies that families going to Pop Warner would have to travel the weekend right after Thanksgiving, which strikes some as implausible. They believe that Pop Warner starting the week of December 8th 2013 seems more likely. In response, I’ve had contacts reach out to both Disney and Pop Warner, and here’s the scoop.
IT’S JUST A FORECAST, FOLKS…AND THAT MEANS BY DEFINITION IT COULD BE WRONG
Both Disney and Pop Warner have told my sources that there is as yet no contract for Pop Warner to be at Disney World in 2013, and that therefore there simply are no official dates for 2013. Pop Warner went on to tell my source that “it is always that first week in December and it will probably be the same next year.” So there you have it! No official dates, but “probably” the first week of December. This is not a ton of help, I know. Based on the info so far, I’m going to leave my forecast dates for Pop Warner as is for now, but that doesn’t mean they will turn out to be right…only that they are consistent with the best available information that I have!
