    My family and I will be in WDW on a 4 day PH in August, from a THursday through Sunday. Of the four parks, are any of them best to avoid on the weekend due to crowds?

    Hi Richard!

    This is a great question!

    The rules of thumb change from season to season and even from week to week!  The best place for this kind of information on specific days of the years can be found at the independent website  That is the website for the research team behind the tour book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".  They are famous in the Disney fan community for producing a crowd calendar that predicts the crowd levels in the various parks all year long.  Their recommendations on which parks to visit on which days and which to avoid are based on years of data collection and a lot of math!  As an engineer, I am a huge fan of their work.  Definitely check it out!

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
