PHOTOS AND VIDEO: You must see the Thanksgiving crowds at Disney World!

It’s Thanksgiving Day, which means lots of delicious food, early Black Friday sales, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and (if you’re at Disney World) …MULTITUDES.

Crowds to the Magic Kingdom

We’ve been sharing updates on how many people are expected to travel to Orlando for Thanksgiving and how the crowds have been over the past few days. Now, let’s take a look at how the crowds are on Thanksgiving itself.

As we mentioned, over the last few days we’ve been watching the levels of people in the parks and seeing how things have tightened (or haven’t). We found that some places have been EXTREMELY full …

… while there were pockets of more empty spaces elsewhere.

We’ve also been watching these waiting times and seen how long the queues have lasted at some popular attractions.

Well, today we made our way to Magical Kingdom to see how bad the crowds were on Thanksgiving, and things were as you might expect … busy!

On Main Street, USA, the crowds were particularly numerous, with fans gathered everywhere to take photos and start the day in the most magical place on Earth.

Crowd on the main street

While the main street vehicles were running, we noticed that some of the drivers had special difficulty getting down the street due to the heavy congestion.

We’ve also spotted some Thanksgiving photo opportunities available with special PhotoPass accessories!

Call it cheese!

In Fantasyland there were also quite large crowds.

Overall, though, things were pretty full!

More crowds!

Here’s a quick snapshot of the waiting times on Thanksgiving Day (we looked around 11:30 ET). Some trips had between 5 and 10 minutes of waiting …

But of course, many (if not most) rides had longer waits.
