    Is there a Disney calendar showing when there are lower crowds and at what times of the year, so I can plan my vacation. Thanks.

    Hi Denise!

    There are several things to consider when planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation:
    • When should we go?
    • Where should we stay?
    • What parks should we visit, and on which days?
    • What kind of tickets do we need?
    • How many Mickey Ice Cream Bars is it appropriate to eat in one day?

    OK, so maybe that last question is only something I ask myself...

    While Disney doesn't release an official crowd level calendar, you can find several great ones online! My favorite place to locate crowd prediction calendars is Pinterest. Simply search for "Disney crowd calendar" and lots of options pop up. There are Disney fans out there that have really done their research!

    My husband and I do our best to plan our Walt Disney World vacations when crowd levels are low, so I completely understand where you're coming from. Smaller crowds means less time waiting in lines, which means more time to go grab a delicious Mickey Ice Cream Bar!

    I hope you're able to find a great crowd prediction calendar and move forward with planning a most magical Disney vacation! Have a pixie-dusted day! - Diane W.
