    Hello! We r leaving in 16 days! With exception of star wars weekend. What can we expect as crowds go? We have only been to DW spring break and Easter. Thanks!!

    Hi there, Danielle!

    What a fun countdown you must be having right now!

    I'm glad you are aware of the spike in crowd levels at Disney's Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Weekends. You can expect some spillover into the other Parks, but it's not so much as to affect the overall attendance levels.

    You are coming during a "moderate" attendance period, so you should experience much less activity than you've seen during Spring Break and Easter Week, both of which are considered "high" or "peak" times.

    If your stay coincides with Memorial Day weekend in May, however, please be aware that you'll see an uptick in attendance during that few-day period.

    Lots of unaffiliated sites make predictions of crowds based on historical data. The best of these, in my opinion, is - check them out before you go, and that might help you narrow down your itinerary even further.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
