You can certainly visit Old Town and the market during the day. Depending on what time you get there in the AM I'd expect that you could easily be finished by some time in the early afternoon.

Hi,

I agree with Riff M as far as getting done with both the market and Old Town by mid to late afternoon.

One thing that concerns me just a little is when in "late Nov" you plan on being here. Our Thanksgiving Day national holiday is Thursday, 28 November, and that becomes a four day weekend for many. It's without a doubt our most heavily traveled holiday of the year.

So if you're trying to drive anywhere on Wednesday the 27th, Thursday the 28th, or Sunday the 1st of Dec., you'll likely be in some very heavy traffic. If you're driving on the Saturday of that weekend, things won't be so bad.

Many places (not all) will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, so it's wise to check in advance before committing to a destination.

EDIT: I just saw from one of your other posts that you will be arriving in San Diego the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and your modified plan to drive to Anaheim on Sunday. I'd make it a point to try and leave here Saturday evening to avoid some of the traffic on Sunday.

Hi Zed and riff

Thanks both for your advice. It certainly helps to know about the traffic situation on Sunday. I will drive to Anaheim on sat evening. I plan to go to the zoo on 27 nov. hope it won't be too crowded. On thanksgiving day, plan to go to sea world. Do u know if it will be opened ?

If you decide to stay over Sat night just make sure you leave by probably 830-900am and traffic won't be an issue to Anaheim. Even a little later you probably are fine but to be safe the earlier the better.

Hi goodbeer

Thanks for the advice. Think I want to be as near as possible to Disneyland to get a good headstart :)
