    What are the best days to visit the theme parks? I would imagine that the weekends are the busiest.

    Hello Steve,

    The following is a list of historic attendance trends throughout the year that Walt Disney World lists on their website for advice on the best times to visit during the year as well as at the bottom you will see what they have discovered to be the days that are particularly busy in each of the Parks and you should try to avoid these days if you don't want to experience larger crowds.  Please keep in mind also that special events and promotions may influence Theme Park attendance levels:

    Lowest Attendance: January (except New Year's Day) until just prior to Presidents' week in February
    The week following Labor Day until just prior to Thanksgiving week
    The week following Thanksgiving until the week prior to Christmas

    Moderate Attendance: After Presidents' week in February through early March
    Late April through early June (except Memorial Day weekend)
    The first part of Thanksgiving week

    Highest Attendance: Presidents' week in February
    Mid-March through Late April ("Spring Break")
    Memorial Day weekend
    Mid-June through Labor Day
    Thanksgiving Day and weekend
    Christmas week through New Year's Day

    During regular attendance periods the Theme Parks tend to be the busiest on the following days:
    Magic Kingdom Park: Monday, Thursday, and Saturday
    Epcot: Tuesday and Friday
    Disney's Hollywood Studios
    : Sunday and Wednesday
    Disney's Animal Kingdom
    Theme Park: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

    Have a magical day!
