    I know Extra Magic Hours play into this- but I was wondering- do you know what day each park has the "lowest attendance?" ie) typically what day of the week would best avoid crowds?

    Hi Callie,

    Walt Disney World has posted their findings of these historic attendance trends throughout the year as well as which days are typically more busy in each of the Theme Parks (based on a "regular" attendance period) on their website under the frequently asked questions.  You can view the information below which comes directly from the website or just click on the above link in order to see where it comes from yourself.  


    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


    Have a magical day!

    Best wishes,
