Best Time to Visit Disney World in 2020 & 2021

by Leap on October 1, 2020 1596 Orlando

Best Time to Visit Disney World in 2020 - Disney World Crowd Calendar 2020It'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? That question has become even more complicated in the last few months as the parks shut down. They have now all reopened at lowered capacity with mask requirements, additional health and safety measures, and fewer character and entertainment options. Things look and feel a little differently for sure, but many of us have adapted to this "new normal." Coupled with lower crowds, albeit not as low as they were in July when the parks reopened, many of us have started thinking it's a good time to visit Disney World. While we're not here to convince you to go now, we do want to look at the predicted crowds over the next few months and years.

Some of you are also wondering: "When will Disney World be back to normal?" At this point, we don't have an answer to that, although we will explore it in more detail below. 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 crowd level.

Visiting when the crowds are low (or lower) is still one of the best ways to ensure a great trip. The good news is that as far as crowds go, the rest of this year — and probably most of 2021 — should be a good time to visit! Do keep in mind that crowds are picking up, although not to pre-pandemic levels. Also keep in mind that in order to limit capacity and maintain social distancing, Disney is requiring guests to book park reservations through Sept. 26, 2021. Demand has overall been lower than those capacity limits, except for the case of Disney's Hollywood Studios, where that park is now unavailable for over half of October and some of November 2020. We expect this trend to continue, in no small part because of interest in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, but also keep in mind that Disney's Hollywood Studios is simply the smallest park and therefore has the smallest capacity. For this reason, if you plan to visit in the next few months, we highly recommend you purchase tickets and make your park reservations now.

If all of this talk of parks at capacity has you worried, keep in mind that this is an artificial "capacity," not what the parks can hold. While Disney does not release attendance numbers, we do know it severely reduced capacity when the parks reopened in accordance with states and local guidance. While the state of Florida has now removed attendance restrictions from theme parks, we don't expect to see Disney World remove its restrictions any time soon. After all, no theme park in the world — especially not Disney World — wants to have to shut down again. Ride wait times have gone up in recent weeks, but they are still much lower than previous times.

When Will Disney World Return to Normal? What Will Crowds Look Like for the Rest of This Year?

Oh how we wish we had an answer to this question. Unfortunately, we don't have a Magic 8 Ball. While we have years of data and insights we've amassed about crowds at Disney World, we are in new territory. None of us could have predicted the impact of COVID-19. There are so many factors at play that will impact the rest of the year, 2021 and perhaps years more to come, including the virus, the development of a potential vaccine, the economy, unemployment, mask rules, travel restrictions (international and domestic) and, yes, worry.

Best Time to Visit Disney World - Cinderella Castle

It is a different experience now, but not all of the changes are bad. If you are big on lower ride wait times and OK with waving to characters rather than getting hugs or autographs from them, there has perhaps never been a better time to visit. Characters are, in many ways, more visible now than they have ever been. You can’t meet with them, but they’re out and about everywhere — even on Cinderella Castle! More importantly, Disney has introduced social distancing and safety measures, reduced capacity and made other changes to insure the health of guests.

While some will say "not this year," that will also make for even lower crowds for those who do opt to visit Disney World. And, it also means, unlike many other years where you needed to plan months and months in advance, this year you can actually book a last-minute trip and still have a great experience. This is making visiting Disney World more like visiting Disneyland. And speaking of, with Disneyland still closed, some people who usually visit the West Coast parks may consider heading east (here is some key info you Disneyland fans need to know about visiting Disney World). Ultimately, you have to make the best decision for your family.

What we can tell you is that while crowds are increasing, we expect them to continue to be lower than historical averages for October, November and December. Yes, the dates around the holidays will be busy, but much less so than in previous years. So far, minus Disney's Hollywood Studios, park availability has been good for regular park-goers (though passholders have seen more limits). And while attendance will likely pick up in 2020, especially at the end of fall and winter, overall we expect crowds will be significantly lower than in years past. Most likely, most of 2021 will also see lower crowd levels. The week of Thanksgiving has always been one of the busiest weeks for Disney World, and we think it will still be busy, just not nearly as busy as usual. The same goes for the week of Christmas.

Now, 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 2020 and 2021

It should come as no surprise that the best time to visit Disney World has historically fallen along 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. Now, this year with so many school districts moving to online school or hybrid (online and in-person options), this is allowing for more flexibility, part of the reason we saw an uptick in crowds in September. The decision to take kids out of school, even virtual school, for Disney is toadally personal, and we frogs have a no-judgement policy. We've got out eyes out and will continue to update as we know more. But we'd expect to see that 2021 will have more of a return to previous years.

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 shortest. Also, key shows, such as Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom and Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios aren't always shown daily when crowd levels are lowest (they aren't currently being shown to ensure social distancing). When crowd levels are highest, the parks generally open earlier and close later, and key entertainment might have two showtimes each evening.

Epcot Flowers

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 Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. You just might decide you want to plan your visit during one or more of them! (In fact, this year's modified A Taste of Food and Wine Festival is going on now through fall, the longest event yet!) Likewise, the cancellation of events, such as this year's Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, is one reason we expect fall crowds to be even lower than normal.

Disney's Hollywood Studios Character Cavalcade

This is a good time to bring up Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The land opened at the end of summer 2019, and the phased opening of its two attractions added an unknown as far as crowds go. Thanks to the phased opening and Extra, Extra Magic Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios, crowds were mostly manageable in fall, but the park had been hopping since the opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance on Dec. 5, 2019, through its closure in the spring. Since the park's reopening, Galaxy's Edge and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance has continued to be a major draw, and we expect this to be the case for years to come. However, with lower crowds and two opportunities to snag a Boarding Group, Rise of the Resistance is more accessible now than ever.

So When Is the Best Time to Visit Disney World in 2020 and 2021?

The very best times to visit Disney World in 2020 are ...

  • Jan. 6-9, Jan. 13-16, Jan 27-Feb. 13
  • Feb. 25-March 6
  • July and 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)

*Not typical

The very best times to visit Disney World in 2021 are ...

  • Jan 25-Feb. 11
  • Feb. 22-March 5
  • 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 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, 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. With the cancellation of Mickey's Not-Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Halloween Horror Nights, we expect a much lighter September and October for 2020, but we expect 2021 to be a little busier.

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, 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 2020 are ...

  • Jan. 1-5, Jan. 18-26
  • Feb. 14-23
  • March 7-March 15
  • The week of Thanksgiving
  • The week of Christmas through the week of New Year

The very worst times to visit Disney World in 2021 are ...

  • Jan. 1-11, Jan. 18-20
  • Feb. 12-21
  • March 6-April 11
  • 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 2020, Easter falls on April 12. In 2021, it is April 4. 

Best and Worst Holidays to Visit Disney World in 2020 and 2021

Let's hop over to the holidays. These are a popular time 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 4, 2021
  • July 4th
  • Thanksgiving - Nov. 26, 2020, and Nov. 25, 2021
  • 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 survival guides for spring breakThanksgiving and Christmas. The other holidays also see an increase in crowds, although they are less pronounced than the ones above. The least busy holidays for 2020 and 2021 are:

  • Labor Day - Sept. 7, 2020, and Sept. 6, 2021
  • Columbus Day - Oct. 12, 2020, and Oct. 11, 2021
  • Veterans Day (and Veterans Day Observed) - Nov. 9, 2020 (observed) and Nov. 11, 2021

Well, there you have it — the best times to visit Disney World in 2020 and 2021. Let us know your favorite time of year to visit Disney World in the comments below! Curious how busy Disney World will be when you plan to visit?

Just went to Animal Kingdom yesterday (a Tuesday) and it was pretty empty. It was election day so not sure if that made a difference. Got on everything in less than 30 minutes. Rode FOP twice (one of my favs!). Kilimanjaro was quick. The park closes at 5 so it is kind of a bummer not to see Pandora at night. Oh one note though... all the restaurants were still BOOKED FULL! I don't see how since the park was so empty. So even if it's a light crowd day, you better plan on booking dining ahead of time. We ended up going to Disney Springs and walked in Jock Lindseys with no reservation.

Ride wait times are NOT much lower than previous times.

By visiting thrill data, I compared Friday, October 16, 2020 with Friday, October 18, 2019.

This is considered an off season time. School is in session and it is a workday.

Magic kingdom, 9 rides had consistently higher wait times (October 2020). Some of them the wait times doubled over October 2019. 4 rides had less wait times and 4 rides were very close to the same wait times.

Do not plan on less wait time. The statistics now show MORE wait time than the previous October.

Coupled with no fast passes, fewer shows, no parades, no fireworks, no character meets, and many closed restaurants, Disney World is looking more and more like wait in line world.

Many reviews are complaining about lack of snack and drink availability without waiting in line 25 minutes to an hour.

Another report is that quick serve meals are required to be ordered though the disney app. You may not enter the restaurant until you get a notification that the food is ready. Then, people are reporting an additional 20 minute wait.

Also, reviewers are complaining about very long wait times for transportation to and from the parks due to social distancing on buses and having to wait for multiple buses to get on one.

So, there may be fewer people allowed in the parks, but with so much closed, people that are there are forced into constant lines and statistically wait times are higher than mid-October 2019 for the majority of the rides.

We visited December 2018. We stayed until Christmas. A very busy time of year. Due to planning and fast passes, we did not wait in line more than 45 minutes on anything. I cant imagine waiting in line 60-100 minutes for most rides.

We are highly considering canceling our upcoming trip.

As a Fl res AP I can tell you honestly that I feel a Disney vacation is worth the money you will spend right now. So many things have been reduced and eliminated and I doubt they are lowering price accordingly. As AP we were told we could be offered a partial refund on our passes after Covid hit but I doubted they would refund very much so we elected to keep the passes. In hindsight I feel it was a mistake but we probably wouldn’t have got that much back so I consoled myself with that. If I were someone who had the opportunity to receive a 100% refund on a DW vaca at this point I’d highly recommend you take it.

We love Disney World! We went there on a whim when our Buddy Passes to Hawaii didn't work out. We made the split decision inside the airport to change the destination to Orlando. We booked an Airbnb condo the same day and hit all the Disney parks and Universal in one week. Our boys had so much fun. We were there the last week of September, and crowds were minimal. It was perfect.

Hi Brady!

Since that week is right between Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, crowds tend to pick up on the weekends during that timeframe, with weekdays having lower crowds. Crowds overall are lower this year, so we expect that you'll see the same pattern - busier on weekends - but with much lower crowds than usual years. Enjoy!

We were thinking of 2-16 November 2021... Will the Christmas season be starting, or will we catch the end of Halloween?

Would any attractions possible be down to get them ready for Christmas (Jingle Cruise for example), or should I not worry?

Hi Jay!

You should actually get a mix of both during that timeframe - you may catch the very tail end of Halloween and get to see the transition into the holidays! Jingle Cruise started running on Nov. 2 in 2019, so we expect that the timeframe will be similar this year (the overlay itself doesn't take very long to get up). The same goes for the other holiday overlays in Magic Kingdom, including Tomorrowland Speedway, Space Mountain and Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor, though some are exclusive to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Prior to your trip, be sure to hop over to our refurbishments post for a status update on any attractions that may be down during your trip.

Keep hopping!

Hi Jayden!

We don't have exact opening dates for Guardians or Tron just yet. They were scheduled to be ready to open sometime in 2021 before the closure (Guardians potentially in the fall). We'll be sure to update as soon as we know more! Crossing our froggy fingers that they'll be ready in time for your trip! :)

Keep hopping!
