    Which day to visit Magic Kingdom? Jan. 27, 2019 or Monday, Jan. 28, 2019. Will Pro Bowl weekend (26-27) affect crowds on Sunday, Jan. 27 (with extra Magic Hours) or better to go on Monday, Jan. 28? Crowd calendars differ on opinions. Thanks!

    Hi, David! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We’re so glad you stopped by to send in your question. 

    Crowd prediction is a tricky science which is probably why those crowd calendars have inconsistent predictions. Sometimes they can be right on the mark, but there’s just so many factors that affect attendance to the theme parks that it’s best not to lock in your planning too closely to those predictions.  Instead, having a good plan for your day will guarantee you’ll have a magical day no matter how many other guests are there enjoying the magic with you! 

    Rule of thumb is that weekends will draw larger crowds, since locals will usually visit then, as opposed to taking time off work for a week-day visit. Just be sure to lock in all your FastPass+ as soon as your booking window opens. And don’t forget all your tasty dining reservations for those fun and tasty breaks you’ll surely want to have during your adventure filled day!

    I hope this information was helpful! Be sure to come back and see us again soon for any additional planning tips or advice. 

    See ya real soon!
