    Hi again! We really need to know when the crowds are the lowest (September, October, or November) and at what times in the month. We aren't there for the parties. We are just there for the Disney experience. So, when is it the LEAST crowded? Thanks!

    Hi Dana,

    In general, September until the week before Thanksgiving is a low-crowd time at Walt Disney World.  For more specifics, I'm going to direct you over to an independent website called They have a tool called the Crowd Calendar, which gives a crowd-level score to each and every day of the year. Based on their information you can figure out which dates make the most sense for you. There is a small fee for this information (reduced if you have a copy of the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World), but it seems to me that since reducing crowd impact is your biggest priority, then you would find the information particularly valuable.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you need more help.
