    We too are changing it up.. And taking them out early.
    Same here, I usually let the kids go to school & I work till around 3, and we try and catch a 6 pm flight or so, so that we can still utilize M.E. And let them bring the luggage to the room..And as you said, get an early start the next morning. But are leaving early Friday, because I saw that there was a change in the flight time from 6:07 to 5:24pm...No way is that enough time to head into NYC and catch a flight on a Friday afternoon...So they switched it to whatever I wanted to.
    Which we chose 6 a.m.

    We plan on being there that week with our 2 daughters, who work in schools, and 5 grand-kids, who are students. We usually go in summer and don't mind the crowds, we just try to have a daily plan, and are looking forward to cooler temps.

    We went twice during “Jersey Week” before we ever knew there was such a thing. I honestly didn’t notice an influx of folks from the Garden State. What I did notice was was the locals pouring in around Veteran’s Day to get a long weekend. Even so the crowds were managable.

    My wife and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary that week. Hoping it is not too bad. Coming down on 11/6/19 (the 7th is our anniversary) and leaving Monday 11/11.

    We wanted to go back since we spent our honeymoon at Disney :).

    We are going Nov 2-11th of next year.

    As you can see from my signature, it is my fourth trip on that week. The first two had moderate crowd levels, but the last two definitely were busy. I would expect decent but not outrageous crowds.

    We went that week in 2017, we'll be there Oct 28 - Nov 6 in 2019. This whole Jersey Week thing is way overblown in my opinion. Food&Wine will make Epcot busier than usual, especially WS on Saturdays so we avoid that park on Sat. but other than that we just do what we wish. Check out any foot races that may be going on and avoid the park involved on that day and you'll do fine.

    FYI - they did announce the Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend will be Oct 31 - Nov 3 2019. That will make Epcot a little busier on Sunday with the race and party.

    You will love POR, it is our favorite resort! It has a nice, relaxing atmosphere and has the boat ride to DS, which is great.
    As far as Jersey Week, we have gone many times during "jersey week", and never even knew it was a "thing" til we read about it on Disney sites! The crowds were okay. We don't expect no crowds, so we had no problems with them. Compared to early December, it wasn't more crowded, or less. WE never stressed over it and had a great time, even at "jersey week":)

    What have the reports said? We arrive tonight! This will be the third year in a row during Jersey Week. It's crazy crowded in my opinion but I have nothing to compare it to and we plan our days down to the minute and have been very successful.
