    I booked a trip to WWD for 8/17-22. It is during the value season and when I booked my trip the agent told me that it's a less crowed time to go. I found a calander on here that shows the last week in Aug as a good time. Will 1 week make that much diff?

    Hi Britnie!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip!  My family almost always travels to Disney during the last two weeks of August.  We've been doing this for the past seven years, and in my experience, the crowds during the last two weeks are largely comparable.  The final few days leading up to Labor Day Weekend (and the weekend itself) tend to pick up a bit, but you are not traveling during this time, so I wouldn't be worried.  Many schools in the South go back during the second half of August, which accounts for the smaller crowds during both weeks you are considering.  If the week you picked works well with your schedule, I'd stick with it.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
