    We are going to be at Disney July 1st-8th. Can you tell me which park will be the least crowded on the fourth of July.

    Hi Katherine,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  You have your vacation planned during an extremely popular time period to visit.  There are several websites out there that use historical data to attempt to predict the crowd levels at the Walt Disney World parks, and I think they are somewhat reliable.

    In my opinion, the most crowded parks will be the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios, simply due to not only their popularity, but the layout  of the park is more "closed" in than the others.  Epcot and Animal Kingdom have the size of the park in their favor, and the spaces are a bit more wide open.  If it were me, I would probably choose Epcot because the park will stay open later and even if the lines are terribly long, World Showcase is a wonderful place to explore! 

    I will caution, the parks will close the main entrance once park capacity has been reached (this often happens this time of year).  So choose your park, and get there early!

    Hope this helps!
