    i'm going to wdw in late august i was wondering which park is the best to go to and what day is best to go to them

    Hi Sarah,

    I like all of the Theme Parks at WDW and if you can visit each one then I would do that but if your time does not allow for that plan then this would be my order of choice:  1) Magic Kingdom 2) Disney's Hollywood Studios 3) Epcot 4) Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Historic attendance trends throughout the year show that mid-June until Labor Day is during the "Highest Attendance" period at Walt Disney World and unfortunately you will be falling into this time frame and should count on some crowded times during your trip.  

    During regular attendance periods the Theme Parks tend to be the busiest on the following days:
    Magic Kingdom Park: Monday, Thursday, and Saturday
    Epcot: Tuesday and Friday
    Disney's Hollywood Studios: Sunday and Wednesday
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

    Given this information I think it would be wise to avoid the parks that tend to be busiest on certain days of the week and go to the other parks instead on those select days.  You have many options to choose from, just try to stay away from the specific parks listed above on those particular days and you should enjoy a less crowded time during your vacation.

    Have a magical Day!
