    Me and my husband are visiting july 20-27 no kids, what would be the best plan for crowd purposes due to your experience?

    Hi Elyse!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    I recommend visiting 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 on specific days.  Their recommendations on which parks to visit and which to avoid on a specific day are based on a lot of math and years of data collection.  As an engineer, I am a huge fan of their work.

    While you are on the site, be sure to check out their touring plans, which are basically step by step instructions on touring the parks to minimize your wait in lines. 

    Another recommendation is to get to the parks early.  I recommend showing up at least 30 minutes before park opening.  You can get a lot accomplished in the early morning hours while a lot of other guests are still sleeping.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back if you have any more questions!
