Jersey Week - WDW get crowded?

Please, when is Jersey Week this year? (1st or 2nd week of November?)

I've heard Disney parks are crowded because of that. Is that true?

Thanks

Jersey Week will affect crowds at WDW from Nov. 3 - Nov. 11th because people tend to add a day or two at one end or another. Crowds will be fairly high - about an "7 or 8' on a scale of 1 - 10.

You'll want a good touring plan.

Yep, that's right.

Jersey week is listed as Nov. 8-12, but crowds are listed as the highest on Thursday and Friday.

Jersey week is the time each fall when the state of NJ kids get out of school for some teachers convention or association meeting. It's similar to the entire state taking a fall break at one time, and many of the families from NJ head to WDW and Orlando during that break.

New Jersey is a small state and not everyone goes to Disney. No need to worry.

FWIW, we have been there during Jersey Week and we did not find it to be a big deal in terms of crowds compared to let's say March Break or even more so Christmas/New Years Eve time

I would rate it a 5-6 on the 10 scale (March Break being a 7-8 and Christmas/New Years a 10)

Cheers

We are also sad to hear that the week we chose to go to Disneyworld is Jersey week...which we didn't know about...

We thought we would be fine anytime except the American thanksgiving...

I have not been to disneyworld for 20 years ..I took my children when they were little ..Now I am taking my grandchildren...

How long are the waits approximately ..say at the Magic Kingdom during Jersey week...We fly there on the 6th and fly home on the 13th...any suggestions on what day would be the best for the Magic Kingdom.
