    Hi, We will be coming in Sept and wondering if the weekends are noticeably busier? Trying to decide if we want to arrive on a Saturday, a Sunday or Monday. Thanks!

    Hi Angela!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I think it really depends on the season and on the particular weekend in question.  It also depends on the specific parks as some parks are more crowded on some days than others; for example, people like to start off their vacations by visiting the Magic Kingdom and many people arrive on a Saturday or Sunday. 

    To really answer your question, I suggest visiting the independent website  That is the website for the research team behind the tour book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".  They are famous in the Disney fan community for producing a crowd calendar which is exactly the information you are looking for.  Their recommendations and predictions are based on years of data collection and a lot of math.  I am a huge fan of their work.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
