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, 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?"

Best Time to Visit Disney World - Cinderella Castle

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 weather, 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 summer, spring break 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 in 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.

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 park 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 International Festival of the Arts (and its Disney Broadway 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.

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 in summer 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 - Feb. 10
  • March 1-4
  • The last week 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)

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 Party (or Boo Bash for 2021), Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort and EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. Do keep in mind that September is also 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 — in 2022, this list includes Expedition Everest.

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. 17-20
  • 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

Hello! I love your site, thanks for all the great tips. I am coming with my friends for my bday-I've never been before. We will be in town March 4-7. We want to do all four parks in two days. I see those are supposed to be busy dates though. Which parks would you suggest doing together and on what days? Thanks in advance!

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!

September is a great month to visit! We'd suggest avoiding Labor Day weekend, but other than that, crowds should be relatively low all month long, with the middle two weeks being some of the best days to go.

Hi Tina!

Both weeks are just about the same in terms of expected crowd levels. The only thing about 11/7 through 11/11 is that Friday would be a holiday (Veterans Day), so it could be busier that day. If you're flexible and want to avoid that entirely, then we'd go with 11/14 through 11/18.

We have scheduled our visit for the week of March 7-11, weekdays, because I read that was the last good week before spring break. Now I see on your site that March 5-April 24 are one of the worst times to visit in 2022. Could you give some insight on that? Do you really think the last week in April would be better as far as crowds go even though we plan to visit the parks on weekdays, not weekends?

Reply
Jan 24, 2022 at 8:46 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Lori!

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"). During the time that you plan to be there, we think there could be potential for slightly elevated crowds (some colleges in Florida, including University of Central Florida, have spring break during the very first 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!

We are looking to book Nov 2 - 6, 2022 and couldn't be more excited! From what I read is that the parks will have been transformed and decorated for Christmas, is this true? We would really like to be there when decorated! Do any other "holiday" events start this early in November?

Reply
Jan 23, 2022 at 8:11 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Liz!

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 Julie!

May is a great time to visit, particularly the first half of the month on weekdays, so you really can't go wrong with whichever park you choose for the day! The weekends might be busier, but the crowds during the week should be fairly average. Are you going to each park twice? If not and you have to pick which parks to visit twice, then we'd devote two days to Magic Kingdom because there's so much to do. Let us know if you have any other questions!

This is a great resource so thank you for putting it out there! My question is about October. You said weekdays in October are best but are some weeks better than others? Family and I currently have a tentative plan for October 1-9 and those end dates are Columbus Day weekend so I'm considering moving it to October 15-23. Do you think that would be better or is the difference in crowd levels negligible? Thank you!

Thank YOU for hopping by! Columbus Day weekend is usually the busiest part of October. It's certainly doable if you have to go then, but given the option (and if you have the flexibility), we'd suggest the following week.

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.

Hi! We are planning a trip on september, deciding either sept 10 - 17 or 17 - 24. Thinking about buying 5 day ticket to go 2 days to MK, and one for each of the other parks. 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. Also deciding if due to less crowds, should we get the Genie+ and purchase Lightning Lanes for the dates we are going? We are a family of four and kids will be 12 and 14. Thank you!

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? Are masks required in lines that are outdoor but under a roof? As far as meals, can we bring our own food in coolers? And are there designated picnic areas?

Reply
Jan 10, 2022 at 9:58 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

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.

Thank you so much for all the great information on this website! We are first time Disney goers driving in 01/15/22 and staying at Art of Animation. We currently have MK on Sunday, AK on Monday, Hollywood on Tuesday, and Epcot on Wednesday. My wife didn't notice Monday was a holiday when picking out our days. Our kids are 7, 5, 3, 1. Should we move MK out into the week day to avoid some of the larger crowds, if any? We are also considering adding an additional day. We are so excited!

Reply
Jan 7, 2022 at 2:43 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Tim!

We'd suggest switching Magic Kingdom with EPCOT! EPCOT can handle larger crowds better because the park has a higher capacity, plus the Festival of the Arts will be going on (and some artists or activities may only be available or hoppen over the weekends). And then you can end your trip at Magic Kingdom during the week when it should be less busier! Generally, long holiday weekends mostly affect the weekend only (some families may stay for a few more days but most have to go back to school or work), so we think by going to EPCOT and Animal Kingdom for the first two days, an extra day isn't necessary unless you can swing it and want to ensure more time. Hope this helps!

Hi Vivian!

Your plan sounds good, though we might switch EPCOT and Hollywood Studios on the 2nd and 3rd. There are no races taking place on the morning of the 1st, while the 10K finishes at EPCOT on the 2nd and the 10-Miler finishes at Hollywood Studios on the 3rd. That said, both races start at 5 a.m. so road blockages and traffic may not even affect your mornings (unless perhaps if you're planning to rope drop early — you might hit some traffic from the end of the 10-Miler race). Hope this helps!

Hi!

We have our first Disney trip ever planned next week already (eek!) from Jan 12-15. I planned ahead based on your crowd calendar & now my only dilemma is if I should purchase park hopper option. I have already reserved Animal Kingdom on the 13th & Magic Kingdom on the 14th. I’m traveling with a family of 5 (kids ages 14,5,2) I read Epcot has this the Frozen ever after ride & my 2 littles are huge Frozen fans & that is the sole reason why I’m going back & forth about purchasing park hopper & plan on Animal Kingdom & Epcot on the same day. But then I’ve read some blogs about it not being a good idea to park hop with toddlers. What would you suggest?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jeanette!

Park hopping can sometimes prove to be more of a challenge with tadpoles, mainly because of transportation as it takes time to hop between parks and could even be a bit more difficult if you have your own stroller. There's a lot to see and do in each park that one park can be enough. That said, since it is your very first trip and the littles love Frozen, it could be toadally worth it for your family to park hop! Generally, Animal Kingdom and EPCOT would be the parks that are easier to split up into half days. Plus, Animal Kingdom opens two hours earlier and EPCOT stays open two hours later, so you could take time in between to go back to the hotel midday and get some rest, if needed, without feeling like you're losing too much time. Ultimately, it's up to you and how much you think your tadpoles could handle!

We have planned to go the 14th-19th really based on your crowd calendar and now I'm reconsidering. Please help everything is refundable at this point but wont be for long.

Hi Elizabeth!

Overall, January is a relatively quieter month, and correct, the first week or so is one of the best times to visit! As far as Jan. 15-18 goes, there will be elevated crowds due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend. While it's not one of the most popular holidays (it won't necessarily reach the highest level on our Crowd Calendar), any long weekend can bring in more crowds when kids and parents have the day off from school and work. We hope this helps!

Hi! Unfortunately due to schedules, August is the only time my partner and I can make it. We will be at Disney from 9th-16 August and Universal from 16-19th. I was wondering if this is considered the first half?

Hi Deb!

Usually the first week of August is the busiest, and then it starts to wind down until the last couple of weeks, when crowds are at their lowest of the month. While there still may be some crowds (due to school districts across the country having various back-to-school dates — northern schools often return as late as early September after Labor Day weekend), we do know that the local school districts in the surrounding Orlando area will be back in session by Aug. 10, which would likely cut down the local crowds, particularly during the middle of the week. Hope this helps!

Hi there! Our trip is planned for April 2nd thru April 9th 2022. Since Easter is not until April 17 is it possible that crowds won't be too bad this week since there is a longer period between spring break and Easter?

Hi Katrina!

Since spring breaks vary across the country, it's hard to say definitively if/when there would be any slow weeks during the spring break season. But typically what happens is that the later Easter is, the more spread out crowds are. That said, when looking at some of the largest school districts in the country, many districts will have spring break from March 14-18 (including all of the local schools) or April 11-18 so we would anticipate those weeks would be some of the busiest. We do know that schools in Georgia will have spring break from April 4-8, which could bring crowds, and the runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend is March 31 to April 3. But comparatively speaking, it could be one of the quieter weeks.

We plan on spending our time at Disney World In July. We plan on arriving July 4th and spending the days at the park July 5,6,7th. With all your knowledge, what are your thoughts and what do you recommend we purchase to make the experience better? We plan on doing Magic Kingdom, Hollywood studios, and animal kingdom.

Hi EAJ!

Fourth of July is a popular time to visit, so you will likely run into high crowds that week considering it's a holiday during the peak summer months. While you should prepare for some crowded days, it doesn't mean you won't have fun! It's just important to set realistic expectations. Since many people spend Fourth of July at Magic Kingdom for the special fireworks show, we'd suggest going to Magic Kingdom on the 5th (the very next day). You can purchase Disney Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane selections to skip the lines for popular attractions and save time. If you're only visiting one park per day, then we'd definitely recommend Genie+ for Magic Kingdom. If everyone meets the height requirements at Hollywood Studios, then it could be worth getting Genie+ at that park, but keep in mind there are fewer rides so Genie+ selections could fill more quickly. If Rise of the Resistance, Seven Dwarfs and Avatar Flight of Passage are top priority rides, then we'd recommend purchasing the individual Lightning Lane access for each. But if you're park hopping, then we'd suggest Genie+ for any day. Also, if certain outdoor rides are a priority (such as Slinky Dog), then we suggest getting them done earlier in the day before the weather turns bad (summer often brings brief but heavy rainstorms in the afternoons/early evenings).

Hi

Great website! I am travelling to WDW with my husband for a mini honeymoon which we weren't able to celebrate last year due to covid. We plan on being in Florida either Jan8/9/10-14. How many days would you say would be great to see animal kingdom, magic kingdom, harry potter world, and pandora? We've heard 2 days vs 4 days. Is getting a pass to skip lines worth it? This time of year seems quieter so possibly not necessary.... I feel so overwhelmed by all of this.

Any must do/sees for honey mooners?

Thanks

Hi Anita!

First, I just want to point out that Pandora is a themed land inside Animal Kingdom and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is at Universal Orlando (plus it's divided into two separate parks — Diagon Alley in Universal Studios and Hogsmeade/Hogwarts Castle in Universal's Islands of Adventure). If you stick with only the three places you mentioned, then we'd recommend one full day at Magic Kingdom, another for Animal Kingdom, and at least one full day at Universal Orlando (if you're only interested in the Harry Potter areas, then you can easily fit both parks in one day — but if you want to explore more of Universal Orlando, then we'd recommend two days to cover the entirety of both parks).

As for any other must-sees, it really depends on your interests! If you like "Star Wars," then we'd recommend Hollywood Studios too. EPCOT is also popular for its food and drinks from different parts of the world, which is popular with the adult crowd. So if you decide to add one of these options, we think you could include it on the same day that you go to Animal Kingdom.

Since you'll be visiting in January (and most of those are weekdays), this can be a great time to go with low crowds, so we don't think getting Genie+ at Disney World and Universal Express at Universal Orlando is a necessity, but with shorter park hours (meaning less time in the parks), it might be nice to have if you really want to maximize your time and make sure you get the most done. Hope this helps, and let us know if you have any more questions!

Hi Keri!

We expect both to be busy due to the Disney Princess Half-Marathon Weekend or Memorial Day Weekend, but if we had to pick, we'd go with Feb. 23-27! The weather is nicer then (if that happens to be a factor), and even though the races will be going on, not everyone has those days off, unlike Memorial Day. Since you're not staying on-site, that should help because transportation and hotels are particularly busy during runDisney events. You may deal with traffic and blocked-off roads in the early mornings though, so keep that in mind if you're planning to rope drop. Hope this helps!

Last year we followed the advice of going at the end of April and discovered the cheer competitions. I usually look out for them but did not think they would happen because of COVID. We were at Coronado Springs and the pool/grounds were very crowded. The parks were also more crowded as teams stayed to visit. This year they are weekends starting April 21. Do you still think it would be better to go at the end of April versus April 3-13?

Reply
Nov 23, 2021 at 12:47 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Rhonda!

It's a tough call. The beginning of April is still in the middle of the spring break season, which lasts from the beginning of March until about the week after Easter, and crowds will vary throughout these weeks since schools' breaks vary. Generally, when it's a longer spring break season (like it will be in 2022), then crowds can be more spread out (versus a short spring break season when Easter is at the end of March or early April — crowds are usually more concentrated during this shorter period of time). It is toadally possible that early April would be far enough from Easter that there could be a small lull during the spring break season, so if you don't want to go around the cheer competitions again, then early April could be a good option. But if you want to guarantee that you wouldn't run into any of the spring break crowds, then we'd go with the end of April, as the spring break season should be entirely over by April 25. Hope this helps with weighing your options!

Thanks so much for hopping by! We have two toadally different options for you, either Feb. 14-17 or Feb. 28 - March 4. Essentially you'll want to avoid Presidents Day Weekend (Feb. 18-21) and the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend (Feb. 24-27), and weekdays are best. These two timeframes should be relatively equal in crowd levels, so we'd recommend whichever one works best with your schedule. Have fun!

Hi Cat!

There are still some activities that hoppen only around Easter, so if you don't mind the crowds, we'd suggest going to Magic Kingdom to meet the Easter Bunny (in the past, there has also been a pre-parade featuring Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny right before Festival of Fantasy) or EPCOT which usually has an Easter egg hunt. If you'd rather not deal with crowds, then we'd suggest Animal Kingdom or Blizzard Beach (if you still want to go to the parks) or resort hop (several hotels — such as Disney's Yacht and Beach Club, Grand Floridian, BoardWalk Inn and Saratoga Springs — have fun Easter egg displays).

While you should still expect crowds, early June is better than later in the month, July or the first half of August. By June, the weather will be hot, humid and rainy (unfortunately, there's no way to avoid it in the summer) but July and August can reach even higher temperatures. So a summer vacation during early June would be your best bet! (Alternatively, you could also consider the second half of August if your kids are still out of school.)

It'll be busy because of Presidents Day weekend earlier in the week and then the Princess Half Marathon later in the week, but most rides should be available (unless they're under scheduled refurbishment). The race shouldn't affect or cause any ride closures since the races start early in the morning, but transportation might be the trickiest with road closures so we'd suggest to account for extra time (and maybe Uber or drive yourself to the parks) if you want to rope drop.

Hey! My friend and I are struggling to decide between going for the first weekend in December or waiting until late January/early Feb. to go... Obviously there is something special about going during Christmastime and since I'm such a fan of the holiday, I'm worried that going in February will leave something to be desired. However, I'm afraid this December will be extra crowded due to "revenge travel" and the 50th anniversary- making it less enjoyable. Do you think the possibility of lower crowds early February makes it worth the consideration? I'm really having a hard time getting my brain off of Christmas at Disney, but there is something nice about having a trip planned during the depressing wintery month of February. Have you been during this time and what are your thoughts?

Hi Caroline!

It ultimately depends on what you prefer more — Christmas festivities or lower crowds! We've been to the parks during time periods, and late January/early February is one of the best times to go during the year in terms of crowds. In previous years though, early December has been one of the best times to go during the holiday season, as it's right after Thanksgiving but before Christmas vacations begin. While it is toadally possible that it may be busier than usual due to the 50th anniversary, we could still say the same thing in late Jan./early Feb. since the celebration lasts 18 months. If you've got your heart set on Christmas at Disney, we'd say go for it!

You'll likely see higher crowds toward the end of your trip because of Presidents Day Weekend, and that is usually the busiest time during February.

We'd go with the week of Feb. 28 to March 4 (if that's what you had in mind!). Those dates will fall right before the spring breaks for colleges (March 7-11) and public schools (March 14-18) in the area. Generally, the spring break season is from the beginning of March to the week following Easter, so any week could have potential for crowds. But the most crowded times during the spring break season are usually when local schools are out and the weeks before and after Easter, which will be later in April.

At this time, the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar is showing open availability for all four theme parks that week, so you don't have to worry about jumping on it right now. But do keep in mind that the first week of March usually marks the start of the spring break season, so it wouldn't hurt to get your tickets at the earliest you're able to, as you cannot make theme park reservations until you have your tickets.
