The Very Best Times to Visit Disney World in 2024 and 2025

by Leap on February 29, 2024 3838 Orlando   Video

Inside This Post Inside This Post

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? 2024 and 2025 at the Most Magical Place on Earth are nothing short of exciting! With TRON Lightcycle / Run now welcoming programmers to the grid, a new nighttime spectacular illuminating EPCOT and Tiana's Bayou Adventure splashing into summer 2024, and more, the magic (and fun) is definitely calling! Understandably, some of you may be 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, is this:

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

For over 20 years, Undercover Tourist has been helping families plan toadally magical vacations — and along the way, we've also gained some insight into the hows and whys of crowds. That historical knowledge, coupled with our Crowd Calendar, makes up our recommendations on when to visit each year. But in the past few years, typical rules of thumb have stopped applying as often — things tend to ebb and flow a little less "by the old rules" these days, and that's OK! Plus, more and more families are looking at seasons or timeframes versus specific days to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth.

Around the pond, we've decided to organize this post a little differently so that no matter which criteria you're taking into account for your next trip, we can help! Maybe you're flying solo or with a small group of adults who can adjust their schedules based on the least crowded time to visit. Maybe you and your family really want to experience the twinkling magic of the holidays at Disney World (complete with hot cocoa and cookies!). Maybe you've always wanted to see the character topiaries at EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, or take your mom to EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. Maybe you're a frugal frog like us and want to know the cheapest days to go to Disney World. No matter the reason or the season, the frogs are here to help!

Determining the Best Time to Visit Disney World in 2024 and 2025

It should come as no surprise that the best time to go to 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.

Check out Undercover Tourist's #1 ranked Crowd Calendar to see projected crowd levels, park hours, event dates and weather all in one place!

When planning the best time to go to 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, Disney World hours and even events that are taking place. 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. When crowd levels are highest, the parks generally open earlier and close later, and key entertainment might have two showtimes each evening.

Our recommendations take into account historical trends (and wait times), plus factors we believe will draw in more people, including ride openings, school schedules across the nation, runDisney events, sports competitions, special events, refurbishments, weather and more to come up with a holistic look at each timeframe. We get so many great questions from you about why certain dates are green, yellow or red, so we hope peeling back the curtain gives you a little more insight to make the best decision for your family. (But we're still all ears — drop us a comment if you have questions!) Since saving you some green is kind of our thing, we also wanted to call out the dates with the cheapest tickets (and now that tickets are available through October 2025, we've got deets for 2025 visits too!)

Best Times to Visit Disney World - Tiana's Bayou Adventure

New rides, attractions and lands — major openings — can also impact crowds. In 2023, TRON Lightcycle / Run was the big attraction opening at Magic Kingdom in the spring, as well as the return of a reimagined version of the "Happily Ever After" nighttime spectacular. Even Figment drew quite a crowd when his new meet and greet debuted! This means the biggest draw will be Tiana's Bayou Adventure in summer 2024.

Just looking for the TLDR? Check out the infographic above for a cheat sheet of the least busy times to visit Disney World in 2024. Now, let's hop into the fun stuff!

Spring — February, March, April

Best Times to Visit Disney World - Fesitval of the Arts signage at EPCOT

Spring is in the air!

Say hello to warmer weather, rainbows, flowers, bunnies and spring breakers. Two gorgeous EPCOT festivals take place in the spring, and of course, these months also hold Easter and spring break.

Highlights

EPCOT International Festival of the Arts continues into February, bringing colorful displays, live art installations and the incredible Disney on Broadway Concert Series, with real Broadway performers showcasing their talent. Blossoming shortly thereafter is EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, kicking off Feb. 28, 2024, and running through May 27, 2024. Snap a selfie with intricate and impressive horticultural displays (including some of your favorite characters) or catch a Garden Rocks concert.

@undercovertourist From Hook to Tiana, these topiaries are absolutely flowertastic! 🌸 Catch them from now until July in EPCOT! Which one is your fav? #epcot #epcotflowerandgarden #epcotflowerandgardenfestival #disneyworld #waltdisneyworld #wdw ♬ original sound - Undercover Tourist

While Easter and spring break are busy times, they are also unique opportunities to catch the Easter Bunny in the parks, participate in an egg hunt, check out huge confectionery egg displays or celebrate St. Patrick's Day from the Most Magical Place on Earth.

Things to Consider

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 2024, Easter falls on March 31, and in 2025, it will fall on April 20. Because it's a more condensed period, 2024's spring break season will feel busier than in 2025. You'll see these noted on our Crowd Calendar, as well.

Best Times to Visit Disney World - Princess Half Marathon Runner

February brings a three-day weekend for Presidents Day (Feb. 19, 2024), and a runDisney event (Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend - Feb. 22-26, 2024). Many school districts have the entire week of Presidents Day off, so expect elevated crowds even after the holiday officially ends. The runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend will follow April 18-21, 2024.

Our Overall Pick: We think there are two great options here, largely depending on which EPCOT Festival you'd like to see. If you'd like to see Flower and Garden, we recommend the first week of March, before spring break largely happens across the U.S. Plus, the weather is still fresh and breezy, with an average high of 79 and a low of 57. Bask in that Florida sunshine, but pack a light sweatshirt for the cooler evenings. If you'd prefer Festival of the Arts, we recommend the first half of February, just before the holiday weekend; the averages in February are a bit cooler, with expected highs of 75 and lows of 54.

Summer — May, June, July

Best Times to Visit Disney World - Food and Wine Pickle Milkshake

School's out for summer!

The summer months are pretty consistently well-attended, as the final school bell rings. Orlando weather is also pretty consistent in these months — expect higher temps and afternoon showers. There is plenty of summer fun to go around, including pool parties, After Hours events and more. Let's dive in!

Highlights

It's been announced that Tiana's Bayou Adventure will debut in summer 2024! We don't have an exact date yet, but we'll keep you updated.

Over the past couple of years, EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival has taken over for Flower and Garden in July (but with Flower & Garden ending May 27 this year, we'll see if Food & Wine continues the July start date pattern). Sample bites and vino from around the world, plus a hoppin' concert series (Joey Fatone and Friends is Mommy Frog's 90s dream come true each year!).

That summer sunshine also means peak pool weather, making it an amazing time to visit the Disney World water park, Typhoon Lagoon (Blizzard Beach is often undergoing refurbishment in the summertime). In past years, this is also one of our favorite times to attend Disney After Hours events to capitalize on the cooler nighttime temps. There's even an After Hours event AT the water park, with specialty food and beverages, glowing dance parties and more.

Fourth of July is generally a busier time around Walt Disney World — but as with other busy times, there are also some really fun activities going on! Catch special Fourth of July fireworks on July 3 and 4 at Magic Kingdom, and a special presentation of "Heartbeat of Freedom" at EPCOT on July 4, plus red, white and blue treats and specialty entertainment around the resort.

Things to Consider

In the month of May, things stay fairly quiet until Memorial Day (May 27, 2024). Most schools are out across the nation by the second week of June, meaning that things will ramp up and stay consistently busy until school is back in session in mid-August. Fourth of July is typically an extra busy time — but again, there are special foods, fireworks shows and more to celebrate Independence Day.

The main consideration during this timeframe is the weather. Park hours are a little longer, but the heat and rain in Orlando are in their element. Pack your ponchos, fans and extra socks and think through your park strategy for the day to incorporate AC, water breaks and rest and you'll be sitting pretty. Note that in 2023, summer months saw some sparser periods due to record-breaking temperatures.

Best Times to Visit Disney World - H2O Glow

Our Overall Pick: This timeframe offers up some consistent weather patterns, crowds and events. Either weekdays in the first half of May or the first half of June are equitable in our eyes, though May is slightly cooler than June, with an average high of 88 versus 91, with fewer rainy days overall.

Least Busy

  • M-Th in the first half of May
  • First week of June

Busiest

  • Weekends in May, especially around Memorial Day (May 27, 2024, and May 26, 2025)

Fall — August, September, October

Best Times to Visit Disney World - Train Station Lit up for Halloween

You may be saying to yourself, "August? Why is August lumped in with fall?"

Well, at Disney World, the spooky season gets into full swing in mid-August as Mickey pumpkin lantern wreaths adorn the lampposts in Magic Kingdom and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party begins. Mid-August, most of the nation sees tadpoles hoppin' back to school, making the end of August a particularly good time if you're looking for low crowds. Along that same line, expect things to be busier around holidays — in this timeframe, that's Labor Day and Indigenous Peoples' Day.

Highlights

Pumpkin spice and Halloween mice! Fall is such a fun time at Disney World. You'll find seasonal decor and frighteningly fun foodie finds. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (a separately ticketed event) gives families the chance to trick or treat around Magic Kingdom and enjoy exclusive entertainment offerings, including character meet and greets, fireworks and a parade that aren't available to daytime guests. Plus, EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival is still in full swing, giving you even more opportunities ... to eat.

Things to Consider

If you won't be attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, know that Magic Kingdom closes early to park guests — 6 p.m. You'll want to plan to hop to another park before 4 p.m. (as party guests begin to be admitted to the park) if you have a park hopper ticket, or will want to plan to spend that day in a different park. You can see exactly which days are party days on our Crowd Calendar to plan accordingly. (And don't froget that we've got discount Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tickets!)

Fall in Orlando can still be pretty warm, and August and September make up the tail end of Orlando's rainy season. Be sure to check the weather before you visit ... and pack those fans and ponchos! If you'll be in costume, be sure to take the heat and rain into consideration when planning. (Looking for our best rainy day tips? We've got you!)

While long fall breaks are prevalent on the West Coast, the East Coast also sees some shorter spurts of crowds in the fall, most on the week of Indigenous Peoples' Day — which means we expect slightly elevated crowds that week, even after the official holiday ends. Halloween crowds increase around the holidays and grow leading up to Halloween.

Unlike Halloween Time at Disneyland, Disney World's Halloween decor and festivities are mostly concentrated in Magic Kingdom.

Our Overall Pick: When it comes to fall, September is our favorite time to visit Disney World. The weather is slightly cooler than August, crowds are lighter and you get to enjoy those fall feels in the Most Magical Place on Earth.

Least Busy

  • The second half of August
  • Most days in September (minus the days around Labor Day)
  • Most weekdays in October (minus the days around Indigenous Peoples' Day)

Busiest

  • Days around Labor Day (Sept. 2, 2024, and Sept. 1, 2025)
  • Days around Indigenous Peoples' Day (Oct. 14, 2024, and Oct. 13, 2025)

Cheapest

  • Aug. 20-23, 2024
  • Sept. 10-13, 2024
  • Oct. 1-2, 27-31, 2024
  • Aug. 19-22, 2025
  • Sept. 2-5, 11-15, 2025

Winter — November, December, January

Best Times to Visit Disney World - Mickey on holiday parade float down Main Street

Practically overnight, Disney World transforms from a pumpkin patch to a winter wonderland in November.

Orlando typically follows suit, with cooler weather moving in (aaaahhh). If you're looking to take a dip in the Disney World pools, don't worry — they're heated. This time period also sees some of the busiest times of the year — Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year. It's also stuffed with special events.

Highlights

Unlike Halloween, you'll find the entire Walt Disney World Resort decks its halls for the season. In 2024, you can expect decor at all four theme parks, Disney Springs and the Disney World Resort hotels beginning in early November. No matter the year, the holidays at Disney World wrap up on Dec. 31, with some epic New Year's Eve festivities, including the opportunity to ring in the new year around the world (and plenty of opportunities to toast to the new year).

  • Jan. 9, 2024: Both a highlight and a consideration — you no longer need to make a Theme Park Reservation if you have date-based tickets. Plus, all-day park hopping returns!
  • Jan. 12, 2024: EPCOT International Festival of the Arts typically begins mid-January, celebrating creativity in all of its incredible forms — the culinary, performing, visual and more. It's the shortest EPCOT festival but one of our very favorites to attend. 
  • Select nights in November and December: Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is another separately ticketed event at Magic Kingdom, with free cookies and cocoa as you take in the glimmering holiday festivities (my suitcase is usually full of gingerbread when I head home — don't judge). In 2023, there was a new "Frozen"-themed castle show!
  • Select nights in November and December (*if returning): In 2023, an all-new separately ticketed event joined the lineup — Disney Jollywood Nights at Disney's Hollywood Studios! It offered party-exclusive entertainment, special character greetings, short ride lines and tons of holiday dining options. We'll keep you updated if the event becomes a tradition in 2024!
  • Daily in November and December: Typically the day after Thanksgiving, Festival of the Holidays begins. Enjoy holiday food and traditions around the world and maybe even catch a Celebrity Narrator such as Jordan Fisher or Neil Patrick Harris retelling the story of Christmas with a live orchestra and choir in the Candlelight Processional. (And EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, like all of the EPCOT Festivals, is not a separately ticketed event — your general admission is all you need to access the delicious food and festivities!)
  • Dec. 30-31, 2024: New Year's Eve celebrations are in full swing, with special fireworks presentations on both Dec. 30 and 31 at both Magic Kingdom at EPCOT. On New Year's Eve, you'll find beach parties at the Bay Lake resorts (one year we even spied Chip 'n' Dale in tuxedos!), as well as special DJs in each pavilion of World Showcase, allowing you to celebrate the new year in each country in real-time. 

Things to Consider

The weather is beautiful, holiday celebrations are in full swing and kiddos are out of school — which means that the week of Thanksgiving and the weeks of Christmas and the new year see a lot of visitors. These are the busiest weeks of the year around Disney World ... but there are still some sweet spots to get a visit in!

If you won't be attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, know that Magic Kingdom closes early to park guests — 6 p.m. You'll want to plan to hop to another park before 4 p.m. (as party guests begin to be admitted to the park) if you have a park hopper ticket, or will want to plan to spend that day in a different park. You can see exactly which days are party days on our Crowd Calendar to plan accordingly. Jollywood Nights will impact crowds when mix-in begins from party guests at 7 p.m., and the park closes only an hour early to daytime ticketed guests.

There are also a few holidays and events that draw in larger crowds during the season, including:

  • Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend - Oct. 31-Nov. 3, 2024
  • Veterans Day - falling on a Monday in 2024
  • Thanksgiving - Nov. 28, 2024, and Nov. 27, 2025
  • Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend - Jan. 8-12, 2025
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day - Jan. 20, 2025

The Walt Disney World Marathon is the biggest runDisney event that takes place. Know that there may be longer waits for transportation, as well, as certain roads and routes are closed to make way for runners.

Much like other seasons and EPCOT festivals, there are a few weeks between festivals when EPCOT is in its true evergreen form. Trust us when we say you'll still find an incredible array of food and entertainment! But if you'd like your trip to include Food & Wine, Festival of the Holidays or Festival of the Arts, keep an eye on run dates.

Beginning mid-January, a few water rides close for refurbishments, and you may notice that park hours are reduced until things heat up again in the spring.

Our Overall Pick: Holiday decorations are typically taken down in January before the marathon — so if you're in it for the holiday hoopla, our best recommendation is to visit early to mid-December, before schools let out (noted in our recs below), or the week before Thanksgiving. Mid to late January is another great time to visit if the holiday decorations aren't on your wish list!

Least Busy

  • Weekdays in November (minus the week of Thanksgiving)
  • Weekdays in December (minus the weeks of Christmas and New Year's Eve)

Busiest

  • Veterans Day — Nov. 11
  • The week of Thanksgiving
  • The week of Christmas through the week of New Year
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day -  Jan. 20, 2025

Cheapest

  • Nov. 1-3, 2024; 2025 pricing not available yet

I'm Going During a Busy Time — Now What?

Best Times to Visit Disney World - Batuu

Don't panic!

In our book, it's always a good time to visit Disney World. And let's be real: The best time to visit Disney World is when you can go! We've visited during every season and have found we can manage crowds just fine by following our own tips and park plans at the theme parks (which we've continued to update, taking Genie+ into account). The key is going in with realistic expectations and a solid plan for your days.

If it's going to be hot, plan donut days. Take a break at the hottest times of the day, whether that's kicking your feet up and enjoying the AC at a table-service restaurant or heading back to the hotel for a nap or splash in the pool.

If you're going during the winter months when hours are reduced, plan for more park time and take your downtime in the evenings around the hotels. There are plenty of fun activities to take in — piano sing-alongs with Yeehaw Bob, gingerbread house hopping at the Grand Floridian and monorail resorts, woodworking at Fort Wilderness, Sangria University at Coronado Springs — and that's just scratching the surface!

During busier times, consider Genie+ and make sure to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry if you're staying on-site (and if you aren't, be sure to arrive at the parks before they open to get a head start!). You've got this — and we can't wait to hear all about your magical trip!

And if you want even more froggy insight planning your next Disney World vacay, we're more than hoppy to help! We know there's a lot to consider when planning a Disney World vacation, so we've created a Jump Start guide so everything you need to know is all in one place.

Well, there you have it — the best times to visit Disney World in 2024 and 2025. 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? Check out our Crowd Calendar. You'll find more resources to help you plan your Disney World vacation in our Jump Start guide.

Hi,

My daughter will be turning 5 at the end of June 2020 and I plan on surprising her by taking her to Disney World. It will be the first time for her and for me. Seeing that kids are out of school then, is it extremely crowded during that time? And what recommendations do you have for first timers?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Shar!

Hoppy birthday to your tadpole! What a fun way to celebrate. Yes, you can expect crowds then, and be sure to pack a poncho or umbrella. You can see a day-by-day crowd breakdown on our Crowd Calendar here. Be sure to take advantage of your advance FastPasses!

Looking to visit Disney parks with 3 daughters around 7 April 2021 for my 50th birthday. Would be there for 2 weeks. Last visit was in 2017 from 6 Aug to 21 Aug. Crowds were bearable but weather hot so wanted to visit at a cooler time. As early April is Easter will after 7th April be reasonable for crowds. Trying to compare to mid August previously.

Thanks

We want to gift 3 day DW trip in 2020 (Jan thru April) for son and wife, both are 34. He to be deployed in summer. She has never been, he as a child. Please advise preferences on hotels but I bet they will be in parks almost full time til fireworks so not a lot of hotel time. We will buy tickets and give cash for room, etc. Probably a Resort hotel but only if you think that is a good plan. Thanks

If he is to be deployed, I assume he's a service member. Explore Shades of Green, an Armed Forces Recreation Center. Quite affordable, especially in pay grades E-1 to E-3, but still reasonable at higher grades

Hi David!

What a wonderful gift! We definitely recommend a Walt Disney World Resort hotel for all of the toadally awesome benefits offered! It can be tough to narrow them down, since there are 20+ to choose from! We'd recommend starting with a budget in mind and narrowing from there. From there, we have guides dedicated to choosing the right Value, Moderate or Deluxe hotel. Hope this helps!

The race should be done by the time the parks open, so it's a toss up in terms of which will be the most crowded on Sunday. Monday should be a good day!

Hello,

So I'm thinking about a boys trip, just me and my 7-year old son, staying at a Disney resort from Feb 26-March 1st. I also have a Orlando wedding to attend (with adults this time) from April 26th to May 2nd, The plan is at least 3 of those days at Disney.

Right now I'm at least 7 or 8 days in the parks and 4 nights at a Disney resort in early 2020. I feel like I'm at the point for an Ohio resident to buy an annual pass, considering the park tickets, possible resort discounts, photo package, and meal and merchandise discounts.

Am I thinking straight? I also feel like I'm overthinking it :)

Thank you so much

Hi Scott!

We love the boys' trip idea - so fun! With the mileage you'll get this year, we think an Annual Pass would be worthwhile. One way to scale back would be to just have one member of your family (you would be the best candidate, it sounds like!) get the AP so that you can get the discounts, parking, PhotoPass, etc. without needing to make that investment for everyone. For the tadpoles, you would be able to stick to regular park admission (or discounted through your favorite frogs!) to save some extra green. The only downside we've found with this setup is that not everyone can go through the AP entrance line at the parks together ;)

Hi, I'm planning our very first trip to WDW for December 2020 (7th - 13th), for my son's golden birthday. I'm more concerned about weather versus crowds. Does it rain often in December and is it very cold? Or would you suggest going in October for better weather? Thank you!

Reply
Nov 18, 2019 at 12:22 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Crystal,

December is one of the driest months in Orlando, so the chance of rain is a bit lower than October. As for the cold, December can be a little more iffy. The average high is in the low 70s, while the average low is in the low 50s. Meanwhile, October has an average high in the mid-80s and an average low in the mid- to high-60s. It depends on your preferences, but if you don't mind those December temperatures, we'd suggest sticking as planned so you have a lower chance of rain.

Hi Vanessa!

That looks to be a great time to visit, according to our Crowd Calendar! It is so hard for us to pick a favorite park - if you are Star Wars fans, definitely pop over to Disney's Hollywood Studios! Magic Kingdom is a birthday staple for us (what better way to say "Happy Birthday" than a castle pic!), and Epcot is always fun for adults. If you love animals, Animal Kingdom is also a great pick. You can see our guide to celebrating a birthday at Disney World here. We're sure others in the Frog Pond have some suggestions, too. Have a great time - Hoppy birthday!

We've been to Orlando a host of times, mostly in the summer....kids schools etc.This time 6th Feb 2020 so even though we may miss a few rides we're hoping it will be far less busier and wont be as humid of course.

Reply
Oct 21, 2019 at 1:43 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Ellouise!

The average high in September is 80 degrees, with a low of 67, though September is still considered Orlando's rainy season, with an average of 11 rainy days. October is a little cooler, with an average high of 73 and low of 59 and 5 rainy days. However, keep in mind that stray showers are still possible in Orlando, no matter when you go - you'll want to pack a poncho or umbrella for safe keeping! In terms of crowds, the first week of your vacation is forecast to have crowds as low as 2s as the tadpoles hop back to school. You have a better chance of not having rain in October, though crowds will be about a 5/6 according to our Crowd Calendar - so it's toadally up to you and which you'd prefer!

Hi Priscilla!

Since most tadpoles are hopping off for summer vacation then, the parks tend to see a surge in crowds, leaving the majority of the beginning of June at an 8/10 according to our Crowd Calendar. It's also the start of the rainy season in Orlando, so expect some showers and bring a poncho or umbrella! That said, if it's the only time available to you, it can still be a magical time. Be sure to book your FastPasses in advance and take breaks in the AC!

Hi Leslie!

You may notice a bit more activity overall, but it shouldn't be bad. Those days are still slated to be about 4/10 in terms of crowds. The competition itself looks like it takes place from Feb. 7-9, so on competition days, most of the squads will be busy with competition, and there may be increased activity at Coronado Springs or the All-Stars. You may see things pick up after the 9th in terms of crowds, but we still think it'll be a good time to visit overall.

That time looks to be a busy one, with most days sitting at a 7/10 in terms of crowds, so we'd largely say to do what works best with your schedule! If you will be staying on-site, we'd hop over on the days that the parks you'd most like to visit have Extra Magic Hours; if you are staying off-site, be sure to hop to the parks that don't host EMH that day to avoid crowds. Rope drop and plan your FastPasses in advance to make the most of your time! For complete details on park hours and crowd levels, you can check out our Crowd Calendar here.

If you do decide to go, be sure to take advantage of your FastPasses and keep in mind that Magic Kingdom will close early that day for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (which may be a nice way to extend your time that day if you love the holidays as much as we do!). If your dates are flexible, we'd aim for the very beginning of December (on a weekday, just like you said) or weekdays in January, after the holiday crowds have left and the marathon is over Jan. 8-12.

We'd definitely go for Jan./Feb. over November, only to try to let the Galaxy's Edge crowds die down a little bit (no guarantees, but worth a shot!). There are two times to avoid: Jan. 8-12 and Feb. 20-23. MLK Day (Jan. 20) and Presidents' Day (Feb. 17) will also see higher crowds since they are holidays. The very last week of both January and February are primarily 5s and 4s, though the last week of February does have a few 3s and will be a tiny bit warmer, so if we had to choose, we'd opt for the last week of February.

My husband, grandparents (age 85) and I are traveling with my 2 children (ages 2 & 5) in April. We are staying at an off-site hotel. We will have a rental car and likely drive to all locations (parks). Due to my kids ages, we are planning to hit the parks as early as possible and will spend time at the resort in the evening. We will not be looking to go out much at night with the exception of a night or two during our trip. We plan to visit all 4 parks with a repeat day of magic kingdom (monday-friday).

April 18-25 (I am concerned about the lingering spring break crowds from the NE as well as some of the star wars half marathon crowds)

For us personally, we're okay with an umbrella and poncho, watching the radar and adjusting our schedules as necessary when it's the only time we can visit - but you'll definitely get some rain!

Hi Kris,

Because of the day it lands in 2020, Mardi Gras should be slightly less busy than it was in 2019.

Keep hopping!
