Disney World Crowd Calendar – Best times to visit

The number one question I get when people are in the beginning stages of planing their Disney World vacation is

“When is it the least crowded?” 

The general rule is this:

  • If the kids are out of school, it’s more crowded.
  • Long weekends or holidays are the most crowded times at Disney World.

Moderate Crowds (yellow)

Heavy Crowds (Orange)

Packed Crowds (red)

There are a few additional events each year at Disney World that add to the crowds:

  • RunDisney weekends
  • Cheer and Dance Competition weekends

Note: Over the past few years, the parks have become more full and the low crowd times of the year seem to be fewer and farther between.

It’s all somewhat relative, as the slow times are less slow and the more crowded seasons are even more crowded.

Annual Events at Disney World

Each year Disney World has a series of events, festivals, and parties that can affect the crowds. 

You can find out more about these events by visiting the Disney World Events and Refurbishments page

Hi, I'm Jamie, traveling mama, entrepreneur, and travel advisor. I'm addicted to Disney, traveling and exploring the world with my family, and have a passion for helping families experience the magic of travel. My home is filled with love and chaos, 2 crazy girls, 2 large dogs, and the most spectacular architect and Disney Cast Member I call my husband. We live in Florida and spend our weekends playing at Orlando's many theme parks and visiting the beach. In 2015, after helping numerous families plan their vacations to various Disney Destinations, I started a blog to answer all of the many travel questions I received daily. In 2016, the blog grew into a travel agency, and Love of the Magic Vacations was born. With a team of nearly 20, we spend our days creating family vacations around the world. What started as a blog is now a full service, worldwide vacation destination planning service. I create custom itineraries for each of my clients that not only meets but exceeds expectations. There is no greater gift than making memories while sharing the world and its cultures with your kids.
