    I have been to Disney before. But, what days tend to be busier at which parks? We are planning to go to all of them. Thank you

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's exciting to hear you're planning a return to Walt Disney World to visit all the theme parks. Mickey will absolutely love seeing you again. The question of which parks are visited by the most Guests on which days is a frequently asked question. My personal take is that there are a number of considerations that influence an answer — including seasonal special events and festivals, holidays, school vacation schedules, runDisney race events, park operating hours, and Extra Magic Hours — so coming up with a tried and true "most busy/least busy" guidance rule is tricky. I can offer a few suggestions that I hope will help. First, always check out the online Park Hours calendar for your visit, as it can help you plan. For example, Magic Kingdom is scheduled to close at 6 p.m. when it hosts Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party as a ticketed event, so a regular park visit that day will be a few hours shorter than it would be on a day with standard hours. The calendar will also show scheduled Extra Magic Hours for each park, and that will give you some planning ideas as well. Next, always make your FastPass+ selections as soon as you have the opportunity (30 days prior to arrival; 60 days prior to arrival for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel). Also, always use the My Disney Experience Mobile App to check out wait times for various attractions and help guide your park days.

    Michelle, here's wishing you a wonderful Walt Disney World vacation.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
