    1. When is the LEAST busy time to visit?? I’ve heard September... but are there specific weeks that are better than others? TIA!

    Hi Morgan,

    If you have the flexibility to visit at any time of the year, I would agree that September is one of the least crowded times of the year. Labor Day weekend is a popular time for Guests to enjoy a long weekend at the most magical place on earth, but as an overall average, I'd say that early September is slightly less crowded than late September. Crowd predictions are a little tricky just because what's crowded to one person may not be to another. While one person may be thinking about wait times at popular attractions, another person wants to travel when they can easily make all of their favorite advanced dining reservations. However, if you visit anytime in September, you should expect pretty reasonable crowds. 

    Low crowds aren't the only great reason for a September visit, though. Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and the 2018 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival are two amazing events that also make it a wonderful time to visit. Plus, the all new Toy Story Land is opening over the summer, so I'd definitely encourage you to check that out! I am so excited about it and can't wait to experience the fun of Andy's backyard!

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Morgan, and please let us know if you have any other questions. I hope you have a truly magical vacation!
