Up until last year, we never considered traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. For starters, it’s one of the busiest times of the year and we try to avoid going at those times whenever possible. We also like to spend the holidays at home with friends and family when possible. However, there comes a time when the things you want to do only happen over that period.
Like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
If we wanted to get to New York, we’d have to be traveling around Thanksgiving, there was no way around that fact.
I started looking around a year out and eventually found airfare with miles and a hotel room along the parade route with points.
I was so proud of myself that I forgot to plan some other essential parts of the trip which are usually afterthoughts any other time of the year.

If you’re lucky enough in that you don’t have those kinds of limitations on when you can go away, you may still want to go at the “best” time.
Let’s say you want to go to WDW…when IS the best time of year to go? Well, that’s kind of a loaded question because it really depends on what you consider to be “best”…is that based on the weather? The crowds? The holidays and special events? The cheapest time of year? Hmmm…let’s look at all of the options…

Lots of airports are a whole lot of fun during the Christmas season. Sure, some offer local entertainment, but others go a whole lot further. Munich Airport, for example, opens a seasonal Christmas Market, complete with 2 ice rinks and nearly 500 real trees. But frankly, I think Singapore’s Changi Airport may have them all beat this year because they’ve brought The Wizarding World of Harry Potter into THREE of its terminals, with what they call “A Wizarding World Holiday at Changi.”
