    My husband & I are visiting July 3-7th 2011. I was curious how busy the parks usually are during this time considering the holiday vs. being very hot. Im not going to book until February and I'm hoping there will be availability!

    Hi Lindsay,

    Fourth of July weekend is traditionally one of the most popular times to visit Walt Disney World!  Most kids are out of school, and parents often take advantage of the extra vacation day from work for a Disney vacation. 

    The upside to this is that the parks are open much later than they are in the slower months; with extra magic hours you can often stay in the Magic Kingdom until 2:00 a.m.  There are wonderful fireworks to celebrate Independence Day, so if you're willing to battle the crowds and the heat, then this might be the perfect time for your family vacation.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
