    We will be at Disney during the Princess marathon, but we are not running, We know it will be crowded, but is there a park that is less than another crowded during this time that we might want to consider?

    HI Christie!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Princess Half Marathon weekend does bring in some crowds, but it is usually very manageable.  Animal Kingdom will be the least crowded of the parks, and all of them will be significantly less crowded on Sunday than on Saturday.  It looks like Hollywood Studios will have high crowd levels that weekend.  Magic Kingdom and Epcot are just above average.  

    I would avoid Epcot early Sunday morning as the half marathon begins and finishes in that parking lot. Runners won't be in very much of the park, but the course security and rope-off will create some delays.  

    A good resource for crowd predictions is the website touringplans.com.  I use it when planning all of my trips!  

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
