    when is the best time to go to Disney when the crowds are low ?

    Hello, Traci! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We’re happy you stopped by!

    Traci, any day is a great day to visit the most magical place on Earth, the Walt Disney World Resort! That being said, there are some times of the year that are more convenient for families to visit than others. Think summer break and national holidays. But with some smart planning, even during busy seasons, you can have a magical Disney visit!

    The best place to start planning is by creating a My Disney Experience account. There, you will be able to manage all your reservations, FastPass+, view park maps, attraction wait times, entertainment schedules, park hours, turn-by-turn directions to navigate the theme parks and resort hotels easily, and so much more. You can also access all this info from your smart device with the My Disney Experience mobile app. I don’t do the parks without it!
    You can search online for third party crowd calendars. I’ve used undercover tourist and they have been helpful. It’s not an exact science, but they can give you a general idea of which parks to visit on which days to better navigate crowds.
    I hope this helped answer your question. Be sure to come back and see us for any additional tips and planning help for your upcoming magical vacation.

    Have a magical day!
