    what is the best day to go to the parks

    Hi Chad!  I am one who doesn't really care about what days people think a park is going to be busiest because I have tried it all ways and often the crowds don't fit the norm of the past. Each year things change and so I plan parks on days that fit my needs and fit with the Extra Magic Hours or special events happening in each.  You can check out the park hours by clicking on specific days of the calendars at

    Usually, and like I said above this is not a definite science, you will find the biggest crowds at the Magic Kingdom on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday.  EPCOT seems to attract crowds on Fridays while the numbers show that Hollywood Studios can be busiest on Sunday and Wednesday.  The Animal Kingdom park is busiest on Tuesday.

    The only one that ever really made sense to me is the Magic Kingdom being busy on Mondays and Saturdays.....many families arrive and depart on Sundays and they like to make this park their first stop as well as the last one.
