The Very Best Times to Visit Disney World in 2022 and 2023

Inside This Post Inside This Post

Summary

It's a playground full of magic kingdoms, future worlds and galaxies far, far away. There is so much to do at Walt Disney World! The only question is ... when do you visit? 2022 is gearing up to be another exciting year at the Most Magical Place on Earth! With the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind May 27, the return of the Festival of Fantasy parade and Fantasmic!, plus the continuation of the World's Most Magical Celebration, the magic (and fun) is definitely calling! Understandably, some of you are wondering: "When is the best time to visit Disney World?"

There's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, unfortunately. What we can say, and what has always been true regardless of crowd level or circumstance, is this:

You can have a magical visit to Walt Disney World no matter the circumstance or crowd level.

Visiting when the crowds are low (or lower) is still one of the best ways to ensure a great trip. But there are other factors, such as Disney World weather, special events, park hours and, of course, your family's availability, that factor into the right time to make your magical trip.

Keep in mind that Disney is requiring that guests book reservations for park visits through January 2024. If you have not bought tickets or made your Disney Park Pass reservations, you should do so as soon as you know you want to go, especially if that's during one of the peak periods listed below, such as spring break, summer or Christmas. You'll also want to read up on current health and safety policies in place before your trip.

In our book, it's always a good time to visit Disney World. We've visited during every season and have found we can manage crowds just fine by following our own tips for skipping the lines at theme parks, which we've recently amended based on our more recent trips after the parks reopened. If you take our advice, you will find crowds can be manageable even during the busiest times!

Determining the Best Time to Visit Disney World in 2022 and 2023

It should come as no surprise that the best time to visit Disney World has historically fallen along with school schedules, which is to say, the best time to visit is generally when the kids are in school. Generally, any time there is a school holiday, there will be bigger crowds at Disney World. The decision to take kids out of school, even virtual school, for Disney is toadally personal, and we frogs have a no-judgment policy. It may also come as no surprise that many families are ready to travel again; we expect that 2022 will see elevated crowds throughout the year.

When planning the best time to visit Disney World, we recommend you check our Crowd Calendar. The yearly, monthly and daily crowd levels are right there for you to see, along with individual park recommendations and Disney World hours. Park hours are important and should be factored in when deciding when to visit Orlando. This is because when crowd levels are lowest, park hours are the shortest. Also, key shows, such as Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom, aren't always shown daily when crowd levels are lowest. When crowd levels are highest, the parks generally open earlier and close later, and key entertainment might have two showtimes each evening.

Special events should also be a consideration in deciding the best time to visit Disney World, and they are also displayed on the Crowd Calendar. Disney World offers some spectacular events, such as the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival (and its Garden Rocks concert series is back for 2022!). You just might decide you want to plan your visit during one or more of them! Disney World's 50th-anniversary celebration is in full swing, and the event will continue for over a year! You can see a full list of all of the events hoppening at Disney World in 2022 and 2023 here. While not an event, exactly, guests visiting on or after April 18 have a little extra magic to look forward to, as traditional character meet and greets return to Disney World.

New rides, attractions and lands — major openings — can also impact crowds. We've seen this in recent years with the openings of Avatar: Flight of Passage, Slinky Dog Dash and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. All of these rides continue to see higher wait times and demand. With the latter two inside one park — Disney's Hollywood Studios — this is another reason it is vitally important to make your reservations as soon as you buy your Disney World tickets! So far, EPCOT is the big-ticket draw this year, with Guardians of the Galaxy — Cosmic Rewind blasting off May 27, 2022.

So When Is the Best Time to Visit Disney World in 2022 and 2023?

The very best times to visit Disney World in 2022 are ...

  • Jan. 10-14
  • Jan 24-31
  • March 1-4
  • Weekdays in the first half of May
  • The second half of August
  • Most days in September
  • Most weekdays in October
  • Weekdays in November (minus the week of Thanksgiving)
  • Weekdays in December (minus the weeks of Christmas and New Year's Eve)

The very best times to visit Disney World in 2023 are ...

  • Jan. 18 – Feb. 15
  • March 1-8
  • The second half of April
  • Weekdays in the first half of May
  • The second half of August
  • Most days in September
  • Most weekdays in October
  • Weekdays in November (minus the week of Thanksgiving)
  • Weekdays in December (minus the weeks of Christmas and New Year's Eve)

Historically, September has been the very best month of the year to visit Disney World in terms of crowds because the kids have just returned to school. It is still our pick for the best month to visit, but it has become a more popular month to visit, most likely because of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween PartyHalloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort and EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. Do keep in mind the Disney World weather. September is the height of Orlando's rainy season. You should prepare for daily afternoon thunderstorms and possibly even more rain.

The days after Thanksgiving leading up to the week of Christmas are also a good time to visit Disney World, although not as good as they used to be. With the popularity of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party or 2021's Disney Very Merriest After Hours, which is held on select nights in November and December, and other factors, those days are also getting busier.

Some days in January, and some in February, are also great times to visit. The least crowded time we have ever experienced was in January, the week after the Walt Disney World Marathon. The big drawback to visiting at this time is reduced park hours and often scaled-back entertainment. While there isn't much rain, there are cold fronts that can make swimming chilly (but still doable most of the time). Finally, this is when many rides go through refurbishment. Splash Mountain, Kali River Rapids and Disney's Blizzard Beach have annual Disney World refurbishments around this time.

The very worst times to visit Disney World in 2022 are ...

  • Jan. 1-9, Jan. 15-18
  • Feb. 18-27
  • March 5 - April 24*
  • Weekends in May
  • June
  • July
  • The first half of August
  • The week of Thanksgiving
  • The week of Christmas through the week of New Year

The very worst times to visit Disney World in 2023 are ...

  • Jan. 1-9, Jan. 13-16
  • Feb. 17-28
  • March 11 - April 17*
  • Weekends in May
  • June
  • July
  • The first half of August
  • The week of Thanksgiving
  • The week of Christmas through the week of New Year

*The biggest variable for spring is when Easter falls. When it's earlier, you can expect a shorter, more intense "spring break" season — and therefore, more crowds at Disney World. When it's later, there is generally a longer but less intense season as school districts vary more on when they let kids out. In 2023, Easter falls on April 9, making it a slightly shorter season than 2022, when it falls on April 17. These are still more spread out and less intense than when Easter lands in March.

Best and Worst Holidays to Visit Disney World in 2022 and 2023

Best Times to Visit Disney World - Seasons Greetings

Let's hop over to the holidays. These are popular times for families to make trips to Disney World, and rightly so. The Christmas holiday season especially, which runs from mid-November through the first of the new year at Disney World, is a wonderful time to visit because the parks are decorated and there are many fun special events. Many families love the atmosphere around the holidays, even with the extra crowds. The parks are most crowded around the following holidays:

  • New Year's Day - Jan. 1
  • Easter - April 17, 2022, and April 9, 2023
  • Independence Day - July 4
  • Thanksgiving - Nov. 24, 2022, and Nov. 23, 2023
  • Christmas Eve - Dec. 24
  • Christmas - Dec. 25
  • New Year's Eve - Dec. 31

If you're thinking of visiting during these times, be sure to check out our tips and tricks for visiting during spring breakThanksgiving and Christmas. The other holidays also see an increase in crowds, although they are less pronounced than the ones above.

  • Veterans Day (and Veterans Day Observed) - Nov. 11, 2022, and Nov. 10, 2023
  • MLK Day - Jan. 17, 2022, and Jan. 16, 2023
  • Presidents Day - Feb. 21, 2022, and Feb. 20, 2023
  • Labor Day - Sept. 5, 2022, and Sept. 4, 2023
  • Columbus Day - Oct. 10, 2022, and Oct. 9, 2023

Upcoming runDisney Events

runDisney events also have an impact on traffic, hotel bookings and crowds, bringing both spectators and runners to the parks before and after their races — especially the headlining Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend in early January, which we take into consideration when making our predictions for the year. Races will take place on the following dates in 2022:

  • Jan. 5-9: Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend
  • Feb. 24-27: Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend
  • March 31 - April 3: runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend
  • Nov. 3-6: Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend

Races will take place on the following dates in 2023:

  • Jan. 4-8: Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend
  • Feb. 23-26: Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend
  • April 13-16: runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend

Hi Beth!

With heat and crowds in consideration, we'd recommend looking into late January/early February, November (aside from Veterans Day and Thanksgiving week) or the first week of December. September is another recommended time to visit, but the weather can still be quite hot. It doesn't usually cool down until much later in October or November.

Hi Kirst!

Despite it being the tail end of the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend and the start of MLK Jr. Day weekend, midweek should see lower crowds than those weekends. Though we'll add that this most recent January had higher crowds than usual throughout the month, likely due to more and more families traveling. Due to this, we're not sure if Jan. 2023 will follow a similar pattern, but midweek should not be as bad as those two weekends.

We always recommend arriving early to take advantage of lower wait times. If you're staying on-site, use Early Theme Park Entry, which will allow you to enter 30 minutes early at any park, any day.

I just booked an airbnb for Jan 19-24 2023....do you guys approve?? =) Is that a decent time to go? Its after the marathon, its after the cheerleading thing, its after the christmas decorations are put away...my only concern is the hours. I read that Magic Kingdom could close at 4:30?! That would be horrible. We have flexibility with the dates we go do Disney (Magic Kingdom & Animal Kingdom) since we will just lounge around the resort some days. My question would be, is there a way to figure out this early if Magic Kingdom will be closing early on either the 20th,21st,22nd?? Thank you!!!

Hi AlaskaMom!

Historically, yes, that has been a great time to go! Though lately, we will say it's been a bit harder to predict crowds since this year has not been following past trends as closely. We think it's due to various factors such as the 50th Anniversary and the pent-up demand for traveling (many families who had to reschedule in 2020 are now taking their trips). That said, it should still be a less busier time when compared to peak times, such as spring break, summer and the holidays. As for park hours, since it is an off-peak time, the parks do usually have shorter hours (though not typically as early as 4:30 p.m. for Magic Kingdom — though it can close that early due to a special cast member event which usually takes place midweek at the beginning of the year). Park hours are usually not confirmed until a month or two in advance. For instance, right now, we can only see park hours through July 20.

Hi! We have a trip book for November 5-10 with 3 day park hopper passes and plan to have a rest day. I know that is the end of a race weekend and am struggling to decide on park reservations. Do you have any suggestions on which parks would be best on those days? We will do Animal Kingdom and Epcot on the same day. Thanks for any help or tips!

Reply
May 5, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Kristen!

We'd avoid EPCOT on the 5th and 6th as that's where the 10K and Half Marathon are based, and since the runDisney event is Food & Wine themed, most people will likely go to EPCOT, especially on the 6th. The Half Marathon (the 6th) does go through Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios briefly but since the races start at 5 a.m., there shouldn't be a huge impact. If you want to avoid altogether, we'd suggest Magic Kingdom while the race weekend is going on. During the week, you should be good to book however you want.

I didn't get a choice on dates as my partner's a teacher otherwise I'd have opted for a quieter time of year. What are the best tips for when it's busy?

Hi Tory!

We're actually going to be having a new post all about maximizing your time at Disney World coming real soon, so keep hopping back for that one! In general, we're big advocates of arriving early for rope drop (or Early Theme Park Entry or Extended Evening Hours, if you're staying in the designated hotels), using mobile ordering during off-peak meal times, utilizing Genie+ (if it's in your budget — even if it's just for a few days during your trip, though since you're sticking around for a long time, you may not even need it), following our park plans and using Single Rider lines.

Hi Mary!

Yay, we are so glad to hear it - thank you for sharing with us! Typically, that first week of June is a little slower than the rest of the month - but it can also be hot and wet, so you'll want to pack accordingly! Schools are just starting to get out for the summer, and families will start to trickle in, but things should be manageable. If you are planning rest days, we'd save those for the weekend, if possible, and plan our park days for the weekdays. If you are staying on-site, make sure you take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry (or Extended Evening Hours if you're staying at a Deluxe hotel or Swan Dolphin). Have a great time!

Hi Alicia!

Generally, weekdays in October have moderate crowds, even during the week of Halloween. However, with the recent announcement of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party's return, we'd expect that it may be busier than usual during the week leading up to Halloween, as there are several parties scheduled that week. The weekdays during the week of Oct. 30 - Nov. 5, with the exception of Halloween, may fare better than the week before (though also keep in mind that the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend is Nov. 3-6, and the event may bring in some crowds).

Hey!!

I am new to all of the magic of Disney as we are going for the first time January 1-8th 2023. I noticed there is a marathon taking place on some of those days. Does the marathon actually go through the parks? Or is it separate from Magic Kingdom, which is where we will be for a few days. Thank you so much!

Hi Julie!

The marathon race does go through all of the parks (the half-marathon, 10K and 5K races also go through select parks, depending on the race). However, since all of the races start at 5 a.m. before the parks officially open, the races tend to have the greatest impact on transportation in the mornings since they have to block off roads. We'd suggest taking that into consideration if you're planning to rope drop and allot some extra time in case you are diverted.

Hi Matt!

That's a bit of a tough one, but we'd go with February 25 to March 12. Feb. 18 to March 5 would include Presidents Day Weekend and the Princess Half-Marathon Weekend (both of which can bring heavily concentrated crowds on those weekends). While you might run into the beginning of the spring break season if you go February 25 to March 12, the crowds likely won't be as concentrated until the following week, March 13-17. You can reference our Crowd Calendar for expected crowd levels.

Hi Mara!

Bingo! Both the summer crowds and weather are factors to consider during this time. Summer crowds usually don't slow down until the middle of the month when it's time for kids to go back to school, and as far as the weather goes, you would deal with high humidity, heat and afternoon thunderstorms. However, that doesn't mean you can't have a good time — you would just need to prepare!

Disney just offered 25% off on select resorts to its Disney plus subscribers from July 8 to September 30th. I am sort of new to all this: are your deals even better than that? Also, if we were already considering going in July (because it’s the only month that my husband also has off to go) is there a certain time of the month that would be least expensive (and maybe also least crowded)? We really could go anytime in July

Hi Maddie!

While we think any of those times would be a good time to visit, there are several factors to consider. February would probably have the best weather (cooler temps and less rain chances) and your visit would still fall during the 50th Anniversary Celebration. August has the best crowd levels out of the three options, according to our Crowd Calendar (due to kids going back to school, starting mid-August), but the weather will be more hot, humid and rainy compared to the other two times. However, the Halloween festivities should start by then, and it would also have the lowest crowds for the Halloween event. October can still be hot and rainy but is less intense than August. It's still a great option if you're wanting to visit during the Halloween season (though since it's closer to the actual holiday, it may be a little bit busier than an August visit).

Hi Liz!

It toadally depends on what you want to prioritize! When planning a vacation, some of the big things to consider are crowd levels, weather and park hoppenings/special events. If you want low crowds, we'd recommend late January to mid-February, late August and most of September. If you want ideal weather, we'd recommend springtime (March/April — if considering crowds, we'd do the second half of April so you miss the majority of spring break crowds). As for special events, if you want to visit during the 50th Anniversary Celebration, you'll want to go before the end of March (there isn't an official end date, but it's supposed to go on for 18 months and it started Oct. 1, 2021). And if you enjoy Halloween or the holidays, those are some great times to visit as well! For lower crowds during those times, we'd recommend earlier in the season — so late August/early September or early November/week after Thanksgiving through the first couple weeks of December. It's hard to pick just one best time to visit when there are several factors that come into play, but we hope this helps narrow down some timeframes for you.

Hi Kaydee!

We'd still apply similar logic for dates in 2024 — avoid major holidays, summer and spring break. (In 2024, Easter will be March 31 so that means most of March will likely have higher crowds in a more concentrated, shorter "spring break season" and April would probably see lower crowds for most of the month compared to 2022 and 2023.) We'd consider the following: most dates in January, the first half of February, most dates in April after the first week, the first half of May, the second half of August, most dates in September, as well as most weekdays in October, November and December (minus major holidays).

Hi Lori!

Summer crowds usually peak around late June/the week of the Fourth of July, so the beginning of the month may still attract crowds but it does pick up as the month goes on. Weekdays are generally better, but during summer, you may not see a huge difference. That said, keep in mind that more and more families are becoming comfortable with traveling now and are taking their postponed trips, so the parks have been busier than normal and crowds have been harder to predict based on past trends.

Hi Joe!

We include the week following Easter in the "unofficial spring break season" because many Catholic schools schedule their breaks around Easter (can vary from the Thursday before Easter to the entire week following Easter). Since you're going for just one day, are you planning to go to one park or will you try to park hop? We've found that Genie+ can be more useful in certain parks (such as Magic Kingdom because there are more rides available). Also, keep in mind that Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane reservations can only select 12 people at a time, so you would need to split up into at least two groups. Then the two groups can try to get reservations within the same return window so everyone can go at the same time.

One more question: just saw the Disney reservation calendar for end of March/beginning of April, and I’m surprised to see that some parks are showing up reserved and busy on weekdays, but “green” and completely wide open for all 4 parks on the weekend! Do they increase capacity over the weekend and take more people and that’s why it’s free? It was my assumption that weekends were always more crowded, so I was planning on avoiding them, but now I’m second guessing myself. Any insight on this?

Hi Lena!

We think this is likely due to the spring break season. Since schools have varying breaks, the unofficial "spring break season" lasts from the beginning of March to the week after Easter.

Without realizing it I had booked our trip for one of the worst times to visit in 2022. We were there from Feb 21-26. It is a mistake I will not make again. Disney says the parks aren't at capacity. Well, if that wasn't capacity, I hope never to be there when it is at capacity. It was shoulder to shoulder people during the day. The only thing that made it worth it was the extra evening hours, and Genie+, and I have very mixed feelings about Genie+.

Family of 4 (2 kids: 8 & 10). We will be in Orlando from Mar 29-Apr 9. We are really struggling on whether to buy the 4 day pass or splurge for the 5 or 6 days. If we choose 4 days, we know that we would be in Disney World Apr 5-7. Would you recommend the Mon (4th) or Fri (8th) for the 4th day? If we add on the two other days, when would you recommend attending? 31st/1st? I want to try to avoid weekend crowds. Thanks, your website is a wealth of info!

Hi Lena!

We think either would be fine! We'd also recommend that you get your tickets and Disney Park Pass reservations ASAP. Currently, there is availability on the days that you wish to visit (with the exception of Magic Kingdom on the 4th and Hollywood Studios on the 6th). As for choosing four or six days, it's ultimately up to you! But we'd suggest taking into consideration that it is in the middle of the spring break season.

I'm a FL resident and planning a 3-night trip towards the end of the year to enjoy a little Disney Holiday. Looking at Tuesday - Thursday night either from 11/15-11/18 or 12/6 -12/8. Any suggestions on which one would be less crowded? Crowd Calendar shows the dates in December to be a little better but I've heard that week before Thanksgiving is relatively quiet. I don't think the resorts are decorated for Christmas until after Thanksgiving either so something to consider as well. Thoughts?

Reply
Mar 11, 2022 at 9:10 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Tim!

Both are generally quieter times around that timeframe since most families take their trips during Thanksgiving week or wait until closer to Christmas. It's toadally possible that some of the resorts may have decorations up by mid-November (the Grand Floridian gingerbread house was open by Nov. 11 last year), but it's just guaranteed that hotel decor would be in place by Thanksgiving. However, EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays doesn't usually start until the day after Thanksgiving. In the past, the Pop Warner National Championships took place at Disney during the first week of December, but it moved to Universal, beginning in 2021. That said, some may take the opportunity to hop over to Disney as well, though it shouldn't be as crowded as years past (especially the hotels). And for this year in general, so far, we have seen more crowds than usual due to families being more comfortable with traveling again.

The 1st week in March is not the best time to visit Disneyworld. Contrary, it is one of the worst times due to the entire state of Louisiana being here due to school Mardi Gras vacations. We are here now and it is worse than any spring break we have been here. Never go the first week in March!!

Reply
Feb 22, 2022 at 3:24 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Bin!

Since it does fall on a Sunday, Monday is considered New Year's Day (Observed) so many schools and workplaces will likely have the day off to observe the public holiday. And since school calendars vary greatly, there are some school districts or colleges & universities that may not start right away (either mid-week or the following week), including the local school districts - Orange County and Osceola County — which both start Jan. 4. Another reason is due to the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, which is taking place from Jan. 5-8. Hope this helps with your planning!

Hi Mike!

That same week last December was still relatively busy, though it's important to point out that it was near the beginning of the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Historically, the first week of December has had low to average crowds since it's right after Thanksgiving and before the Christmas crowds, but crowds have been harder to predict lately due to the pandemic. We'd still prepare for higher crowds than normal since travel has been picking up more and more due to pent-up demand. As for Pop Warner Championship week, while the teams will be at Universal for the competition, many may still make the short trip to Disney during the weeklong tournament (though the hotels wouldn't necessarily be crowded with the traveling teams).

Hi Meg!

We consider March 5 to April 24 as the entirety of the "spring break season" since spring breaks for school districts around the country vary (and how long it lasts depends on when Easter falls). Because of this, it can fluctuate and some weeks could be busier than others. Since Easter is later this year, the spring break season lasts longer, but that should also spread crowds out a bit more (as opposed to a year when Easter is earlier, thus more concentrated crowds in a shorter "season"). For the week of March 6, we think there could be potential for slightly elevated crowds (some colleges in Florida, including University of Central Florida, have spring break during that week of March), but March 12-20 should be one of the busiest times, considering that's when local public school districts are out. Let us know if you have any more questions!

Hi Chris!

The runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend is taking place from March 31 to April 3, so you'll want to factor in extra time for transportation around Disney World. However, the races are typically either late at night or early in the morning (the 5K is at 10 p.m. March 31, the 10K is at 5 a.m. April 2 and the 10-Miler is at 5 a.m. April 3), so the races shouldn't have too much of an impact on your day unless perhaps you were wanting to rope drop. We do expect crowds because of the race weekend and the general spring break season.

You're not toadally out of luck for dining reservations! We encourage you to keep checking every so often (we've had success at random times of the day), even up to the day of. You may be able to snag last-minute reservations when families are firming up their plans and canceling reservations before the 24-hour period.

Hi,

i´m planning to visit disney world and universal studios with my better half for our honeymoon. We are a bit uncertain how much time we should plan for the different parks. Right now we are planning with 5-7 Days Disney World and 2 Days Universal. Currently we are trending to 7 days just because of the park tickets that are only buyable for 7 days or 14 days and we dont want to waste any money. Also we are probably visiting in the 2nd half of August, so we don´t know if it would be worth to get Genie+. Should i take more days into considoration for Disney World and Universal? Or even less days? And how about Genie+?

Hi Thomas!

First of all, an early congratulations to you both! If you're wanting to visit all of the theme parks at Disney and Universal and you're able to stay for a week, we'd recommend at least a full day at each park (4 days of Disney, 2 days of Universal). But if you have a deal for tickets that are for 7 days, we'd go for that (rather than 14 days). Since you'll likely be visiting in the second half of August, that's usually right at the very end of the summer season because kids will start going back to school in mid-August. As for Genie+, if you do end up spending 7 days at Disney, Genie+ would be nice to have but not necessary. And if you change your mind, you can always purchase the day of! Hope this helps :)

Hi Amanda!

There isn’t a specific reason, but crowds start to pick up on the weekends during May, particularly in the second half of the month. (Generally, weekends are more popular than weekdays!) Most colleges and universities in Florida start summer breaks by the first weekend in May, so grad visits may be a small factor as well.

Hi Liz!

Hoppy (early) Birthday! :) Yes, we expect those dates to have elevated crowds since it would be the first week of "spring break season," but it shouldn't reach peak spring break crowds until March 12-20. We'd suggest ending the two days with EPCOT and Magic Kingdom because those two parks are typically ones that stay open later (plus you'd get to see both of the nighttime spectaculars, Disney Enchantment and Harmonious, if you stay until park close!). Animal Kingdom is a great park to start your morning with because it usually opens the earliest, as well as Hollywood Studios (so you can rope drop Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, if that ride is a priority). As far as pairing goes, it'd be easy to do Hollywood Studios and EPCOT on the same day since you can just take the Skyliner over (though if you're driving yourself, we'd recommend moving your car to EPCOT's parking lot), leaving you with Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom on the other day (take the bus if you don't have a car, or drive over if you do). If you're planning these park days on the 5th and 6th, then either plan works, as crowds would be about the same. Hope this helps!

May 4, 2022 at 4:19 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Kathy!

Mid-September, especially mid-week, is generally a great time to go with lower crowds. While Genie+ could still be beneficial, you may find that you won't need it (though you could always purchase once you're there if you change your mind!). As for Universal, we think park-to-park tickets would be worth it because 1) you must have a park-to-park ticket to ride the Hogwarts Express and 2) if you go to Universal on 9/18, 9/21, 9/22 or 9/23, Universal Studios Florida will close early (5 p.m.) for Halloween Horror Nights. So if you have a park-to-park ticket and don't want to leave that early, you would be able to hop over to Islands of Adventure, which typically stays open for a few more hours.

Yes! In the past, including just this past holiday season, Magic Kingdom has an overnight magical transformation the day after Halloween. The other parks usually should have at least some decor by then (Hollywood Studios often sees the very first Christmas decor in mid-October). The holiday festivities, such as special entertainment, treats and Santa, might not arrive until later in November (last year, the first After Hours holiday event was Nov. 8 and official holiday hoppenings started Nov. 12). So you'll definitely experience some of the Christmas magic!

Hi Caitlin!

Generally, holiday weekends tend to draw in more crowds, and Memorial Day is no exception. While it will likely be more crowded than what you're used to, it still shouldn't reach peak summer crowds, as most schools' summer vacations have not started yet. (It typically gets the busiest from mid-June to the first week of August, with the week of Fourth of July in particular.) The crowds should also be more concentrated on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. You may want to consider scheduling an off-day on one of those days if you have the time to do so.

I have not gone to WDW in over 10 years so this is a lot of information! Would either week work for less crowds? Is the weather a bit better from 17-24? Is it worth it to go to MK for 2 days? We do not want to miss anything so we are planning way ahead and checking the way we should cover the most popular rides on each park.

Hi Yoly!

Yes, either week would work for fewer crowds (Sept. 10-17 is only slightly better, but it truly isn't too much of a difference, according to our Crowd Calendar). The weather is just about the same as well. Your plan for two days at Magic Kingdom and one day at the other parks sounds good to us! As for the Genie+ and Lightning Lane services, we've found them to be useful when we park hop or for specific parks (Magic Kingdom, in particular, because there are many rides available). If you think you'd like the Genie+ benefit regardless of low crowds, then go ahead and purchase tickets with Genie+ included (if you do, it will be for the entire length of your trip). But you also have the option to wait and purchase day-by-day during your trip. You also can't purchase individual Lightning Lane selections until the day of, so you may want to play that by ear too (just know that Rise of the Resistance is the most likely to book up quickly, and possibly Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind once it opens in summer).

Planning on a trip Feb 22-24. I see that’s a very busy time, sadly. Will do MK only for two days. Staying off property. What can we expect as far as wait time in lines?

Hi Katrina!

This particular time is busy because of Presidents Day weekend (Feb. 19-21) and the Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend (Feb. 24-27; however, there are no races taking place on the 24th, just Sunrise Yoga at 5:30 a.m. inside Magic Kingdom). Since you're visiting Feb. 22-24, which falls right in between the two different weekends, you may find elevated crowds that are slightly above average since some people may stick around for a couple of days after Presidents Day weekend or arrive early for the race weekend. But we'd expect that crowds wouldn't be at their busiest during this time since it is still mid-week. If the ride's queue is outdoors, no masks are required. You can bring in outside food, but the containers or coolers must not be glass and cannot be larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high. (Loose or dry ice is not permitted, but reusable ice packs are recommended.) There aren't any specifically designated picnic areas, but you're welcome to find a park bench or outdoor seating area to enjoy your meal.

Hi Aarthi!

We love Animal Kingdom Lodge — it's one of our froggy favorites! If you're staying in a standard room, there's a chance you might have a limited view of the savanna (though not guaranteed), whereas the savanna rooms have guaranteed views of the animals. We think the savanna rooms can be worth it, particularly if you or your tadpole loves animals. It's so fun to be able to sit back and relax as you watch them from your balcony! That said, if you're planning to be at the parks and not at the hotel for most of the day (early morning until dark), then you may want to book a standard room to save money and use the hotel's viewing areas to see the animals instead.
