    Shannon Asked

    Heading to DW Dec 14-21 & wondering which parks to go to each day? 8 yr old really wants to do the Star Wars thing at HS, but I've heard it can get really busy. Is there a day when HS is typically less crowed? How about the other parks this time of yr?

    Hi Shannon,

    You are going to be at WDW during a busy time and the all-new Star Tours attraction is busy no matter what your timing is as it has just been recently refurbished/overhauled and everyone wants to experience this "new" attraction, but the following is the information direct from the WDW Website that will give you a general guideline of the best time to visit:

    Although special events and promotions may influence Theme Park attendance levels, the following list highlights historic attendance trends throughout the year:

    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

    Best wishes,
