    Hello! Thank you for all the wonderful advice!! I know summer months are very busy at Disney World, but my job prevents me from traveling during off peak seasons. My question is, how busy is it the week after the 4th of July?

    Hi Lynn! It is always hard to discuss crowds at Walt Disney World. You can vacation the same time two years in a row and have completely different experiences. Since the 4th of July is mid week this year it is almost a guarantee that the weekend before and the weekend after will be quite busy making it one of the largest crowds of the year. The week after July 4th week will likely slow down starting that Sunday. Summer will always be heavy but that week should see fewer then the holiday week.

    Always go with dining reservations in hand and a good plan. That doesn't mean you have to have every minute booked but instead just know what attractions are high priority and which ones use Fast Passes etc. Don't stress and don't feel like you have to do it all...Disney World will be there for your next vacation and will always have new and fun things to enjoy!
