    When are the least crowded times to visit?

    Hey there, Karen. We’re so glad you stopped by with your question. Thanks for trusting us to help you plan!

    Traditionally speaking, the least crowded times to visit have been periods of the year when schools are typically in session. So, spring break, summer vacation and holiday periods see the highest crowds. Lower crowd levels historically have occurred right after school starts, mid-September through mid-November, in January and early May. Of course, a global pandemic has a way of changing things and that certainly is true when families have more freedom to travel because both working and learning are taking place remotely in so many places. Still, if I were looking to prioritize low crowds, I’d plan a visit during one of the time periods I mentioned. I think that’s the best bet.

    As you plan your trip, you might benefit from checking out the Tickets & Visit Guide. And if you really want to upgrade your experience and maximize your time in the theme parks no matter the crowd levels, a VIP Tour Guide might be just what you need.

    Have a great time!
