    What day is Magic Kingdom less crowded Friday or Saturday? So to pick the right day to do a character lunch and enjoy all the park has to offer.

    Hi Maria!

    Very generally speaking, there is not a good rule of thumb regarding whether the Magic Kingdom is more crowded on a Friday or Saturday.  There are weeks were Saturday is the busy day, while in other weeks, Friday is more crowded.

    A good place to get a feel for how crowded the parks might be on a particular day is at the independent website  That's the website for "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".  There's a crowd calendar on the website that I have found to be a very good predictor of crowds; it's based on a lot of math and years of collected data.  As an engineer, I'm a huge fan of their work.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
