Attendance & Best Times to Visit

Quietest times to visit - January after New Year; First half of February; September after Labor Day; October; November up until Thanksgiving week.
Busiest times to visit - July; August; Thanksgiving week; Christmas week through to New Year's Day.
The traditional quieter times are getting less so, as more people realise that they are a good time to visit, and Disney puts on new events to increase visitor numbers during those times. Examples being October - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party attracts more crowds during the month; More people are visiting in early December to see the Christmas decorations and attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

Best Days to Visit the Parks

These are the estimated attendance levels at the parks based on past history, and Extra Magic Hours, and are given as a general guide only.
They can vary throughout the year depending on various factors (EMH changes, special events). At peak times, each park will be busy every day.
