Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • We are wanting to get the most out of our time at the parks when we come. The only day the Extra Magic hours are offered for the Magic Kingdom when we are there is on Sun. Is Sun. a good day to visit the MK or would Mon. or Tues. be less crowded?

  • I will give you the run down on park attendance highs and lows.  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

    This is a list that Disney World has generated based on attendance trends throughout the year and because I do not know when you are going, I thought it best to give you everything!  Based on this information, I would go on the Sunday to Magic Kingdom if there are no special events listed for that particular day and you want to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours.

    Have a magical day!
