      Saturdays are often busy at WDW, but there won’t be much Jersey week effect on November 4th. Most of the effect is later that week, and those skipping out of school early will largely be traveling on Saturday, rather then in the parks.

    I appreciate this website. And also, everyone who commented it was very helpful. I am now confident about my family’s first vacation to Disney! For 2017 Oct.29th-Nov.5th.

    Tony – November 1-6 should be a great time at Disney. The crowds will not be bad, especially early in the week. You may see a spike in crowds starting on the 5th as this looks to be the start of Jersey week.

    I plan on taking my girlfriend from Nov 1st to 6th of November. Would the crowds be OK during that time?

    I also looked into JW. I spoke with NJEA directly, who confirmed the convention to be Nov 9th & 10th. So the week would indeed be Nov 4 – 12. However, many families fly out that Wednesday (Nov 8th in this case) and often fly home on Monday. It’s less school to miss, and mid week flights are cheaper.

    NJ school districts are starting to post their 2017-2018 school calendars and show the NJEA days as one week later than you indicate (Nov. 9th and 10th)

      Thanks Marion, but that is what I have had since last year–Jersey Week from 11/4 to 11/12…

    Thanks so much for putting this together, very informative. I’m trying to get an idea of what the 6th might be like. I haven’t been in over 20yrs, and I’m taking a friend who’s never been at all, unfortunately we only have time to do 1 Day and we’re only going to go to the Magic Kingdom. We can go Nov 4 OR Nov 6, which do you think it would be better crowd wise? It’s too late for us to order tickets for delivery before the trip so FastPass is out, I’m just trying to figure out which day stands a better chance of us getting to see/ride most everything. Thanks for any insight you can provide 🙂

      Amber neither is a great day, but the 6th will be better than the 4th. You can buy your tix online while in your My Disney Experience account and will be able to do FastPass+ then. See Josh’s cheat sheet here for how to spend the day.
