    What is the most/ least crowded holiday to visit WDW?

    Hi Michelle,

    It's a bit difficult to say because I'm not sure what you mean by holiday. If you're talking about school breaks, in my personal experience the President's Week break is generally less crowded than Christmas, Easter, and most of the summer. The week between Christmas and New Years, and July 4th are typically the most busy times at the parks.

    To get the complete scoop on crowd patterns, you may want to head over to the independent website They have a feature called the Crowd Calendar which gives predictions about crowd levels for every day of the year. The predictions are created by a team of statisticians who analyze everything from historical park attendance data to school district calendars. There is a small fee to access the data, but in my opinion this can be well worth it when trying to determine the right travel dates.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if we can provide more help.
