Almost There

We are often asked “when is the best time to go to Disney World?”.  Guests are mainly asking in regards to a combination of getting the most bang for their buck and also being inside the parks during the least busiest time of the year.


Here is a list of the anticipated crowd levels for the upcoming year, based on past park crowd levels.  Keep in mind, the parks stay open later during the busier times of the year, and are not open as late during the least busier times of the year.

Least Busiest

  • Mid-January through early March (except for holiday weekends)
  • June through early July
  • Labor Day through early October

Relatively Busy

  • Late April
  • Late-May
  • Mid-July through Labor Day
  • Late October through Thanksgiving week
  • The week leading up to Christmas week
  • runDisney event weekends
  • Early to mid-December

Busiest Time

  • MLK Day weekend
  • Super Bowl weekend
  • Presidents’ Day weekend
  • The two weeks bordering Easter
  • Mid-March through early to mid-April/Spring/Easter Break
  • Early to mid-October
  • Thanksgiving week
  • Christmas week through Marathon weekend in January


Not only do people want to know due to crowds, but also because of weather.  Typically speaking, the best times of year to travel for the best overall weather experience are:

  • Late September
  • October
  • Early November
  • Late February
  • March
  • April

Specialty Events

There are so many things to encounter while traveling to Disney World.  One of the most magical experiences is getting to see the park in all of its glory as it is decorated during some of the Specialty Events that happen each year at Disney.  These events include some or all of the parks becoming transformed with new and lavish themed decor.  Some of these events are:

  • Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom
  • Festival of the Arts at Epcot
  • Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot
  • Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom
  • Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival

I’ve been to Disney when there were literally less than twenty people in the lines, and I’ve been when there where stand-by lines for rides that seemed endless.  For me, there is never a “bad time” to be at Disney.   Contact me today to get turn your dreams into realities and get you a Minnie Box: or visit my site:
