    I will be at DW in early July. Are there a significant amount MORE people on Saturdays as opposed to a Wednesday?

    Hey Kasie! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The answer to your question is 'possibly'. However, I wouldn't say significantly more. July is already a hopping time at Walt Disney World so every day has the potential to be busy given that most schools across the country are well into their summer vacations. Weekends do tend to see a little bump as that is when you would find those who live in the Orlando area visiting the parks. However, the locals also know this is a busy time and tend to shy away in the summer months preferring times when the weather is a little cooler and the crowds are back home.

    As a side note: We were at Epcot two Saturdays ago and never felt crowded. We did utilize Disney's FastPass+ system to bypass the Stand-by queue on rides such as Test Track. On that Sunday we were at the Magic Kingdom and rode many of our favorite rides such as Big Thunder Mountain, Jungle Cruise, Under The Sea and Haunted Mansion without even needing a FastPass+ selection.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions about crowd level predictions I suggest checking out the crowd calendars on and if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
