Disney Crowd Level Chart


The chart below shows the Disney crowd levels throughout a typical year. Use this chart as a guide when selecting the week for your vacation.

Typically, the lightest crowds are during the school year when there is not a holiday. If you have pre-school aged kids, or don't mind pulling your kids out of school, the weeks shown in green are perfect for enjoying Disney World with little crowds.

In the chart below, I refer to the red-level heavy crowds as "not for me". Yes, it is crowded, but it's okay. Just be prepared and expect it to be crowed. That way, any lightness in crowds can be viewed as a bonus! But remember, a crowded day in Disney World is better than a day anywhere else!!

There are always ways to cope with crowds. Get up early or stay out late to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours (EMH). Extra Magic Hours refers to when a different park opens early or stays open later. This occurs at a different park each day. Another way to avoid long lines is to plan to eat your meals at off times. Most lines are shorter during the more popular, or conventional, dining times. And most importantly, learn to use the FastPass system!

After you use the Disney Crowd Level calendar to select your week, continue with Step 2 of the Step by Step Planning Guide where you'll explore the different Disney Resorts or find accomodations at one of the many Orlando Hotels.

Pay special attention to the end of August and the beginning of September. The drop in crowd levels during this time is due mainly to kids returning to school. Keep your eyes open for specials and discounted packages for these few weeks - for example....FREE DINING!
