    We went just before Thanksgiving and all of the Christmas decor was up, and the holiday fireworks and parade were going and it wasn't that crowded. It was a perfect time to go. SOOOOOOOO magical!!!

      After Veteran's day, but before Thanksgiving works really well. Veteran's day can be busy, especially if it is on a weekend, but after that the crowds die down and the decorations are up. Make certain you check to schedule to see when the Christmas Parade starts.

          My fiance and I have gone a number of times right around Christmas, one year before, the next year, the days directly following... and honestly, both times were pretty smooth. Busy? Sure, but it just seemed like people are in better spirits and from the things I've read about Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, some years they are extra busy,and some years, people avoid it. Even busy it's worth the effort.

                I've been the first week of December and then again the week before Xmas (left xmas eve) and both times were wonderful. I think maybe the visit closer to xmas was a little more magical but that could just be because everyone had the xmas/holiday spirit goin'...
                Just countin' the days til the next visit!

                    The HM Holiday is usually up by the beginning of October. In 2006 it opened I think on 9/30.

                      For us, we love the week from Christmas to NY. It is great. Crowded, OH YEAH. But everyone is happy and enjoying the Christmas spirit. I'm already booked Dec 22-Jan2 for our annual trip.
                      If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

                          The only times that aren't good are the week before thanksgiving and thanksgiving weekend.

                          Anytime before or after that is usually pretty good.

                          We used to go the first Sunday they had all the decorations every year, and it was always dead.

                            Best bet for Full Swing Holidays + No Attractions Down = Christmas Day.

                            Of course, you didn't say anything about crowds.

                              Thanksgiving Day used to be the best time to go. But, now they start things earlier (also used to be the first day of the xmas parade) We went the 2nd week of Dec and it wasn't very crowded at all!(the 1st Sat and Sun of Dec is Candlelight, very beautiful, but also very crowded!)
