Most Crowded Time of Year for Walt Disney World Theme Parks
Disney World Crowds Calendar
If you google search Disney Crowd Calendar you’ll find that there are tons of sites promising to give you the inside scoop. However, they are all just guesses, some more accurately researched than others. They are all based on probability and past crowd levels so you won’t get a true crowd calculation. I’ve delved into a few forums and read up on the crowd calendars and found that many people recommend easywdw.com .
Disney World crowds are especially high during the holidays. January starts with a big crowd on January first and then becomes far less crowded throughout the month. February is less crowded as well up until President’s Day which is a big draw for Disney visitors.
Spring is when Disney World really starts to get busy. Spring break brings families with kids of all ages out to enjoy Walt Disney World. It’s also when the International Flower and Garden festival takes place at Epcot.
Come May the crowds begin to lighten and the weather is still on the softer side, though it does start to heat up as we get closer to June. As the temperature rises in June so does the crowd-o-meter. Summertime is busy for Disney and June is when it all kicks off.
July is marked by many as the busiest month out of the year for Disney World crowds. The heat and the heavy crowds continue on into August. By the end of the month though it starts to slow down a bit as families get ready for back to school.
September is a slower month and also when the International Food and Wine Festival kicks off at Epcot. Savor the sights, sounds and TASTES of many different countries.
October has gradually ramped up when it comes to crowds thanks to the popularity of Disney World’s Halloween celebrations. If you don’t mind the crowds this party is one not to miss. November is one of the slowest months of the year for Disney and the temperatures are much cooler and nicer. Up until Thanksgiving, one of the busiest times.
Finally, December is considered the perfect time of year for many seasoned Walt Disney World visitors. It’s also a very pretty time to visit, you’ll get to see Disney all decorated and lit up for the holiday season.
