    Shari from FL Asked

    My husband, myself and my 10 year old son are visiting June 27 - 30 and staying off site; it is my 12 wedding anniversary. Which day of the week would be the best for visiting the Magic Kingdom to allow my son to experience the most?


    I usually give the advice for folks to visit the Magic Kingdom on a weekday to avoid the addition of local crowds, but with Florida blackout dates and the Independence Day crowd that will be growing by the end of your vacation window, I recommend going on Saturday, June 27. My favorite crowd-predicting website at agrees with my gut. The hours are the same every day of your vacation but the difference that may impact your wait times for attractions are the crowds.

    There are Evening Magic Hours that Saturday from midnight until 2 a.m. but only for guests who stay on-site. However, I have found that Evening Magic Hours do not increase a crowd or affect wait times like Early Magic Hours in the morning, so you should be good.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!
