    What are the off peak times - when are the parks less busy?

    Hello Cappi!
    I have discovered that there are no bad times of year to vacation in Walt Disney World! With that being said, there are some busier times of year than others as far as crowd levels. Typically around any holiday or from the end of May to the first three weeks of August (the summertime) are busier but with planning and using strategies like using FastPass+ a person can enjoy Walt Disney World even during a busy time. Based on my experience, the lower crowd times are the Fall from the last two weeks of August to October, early November to the week before Thanksgiving, the week after Thanksgiving to the 3rd week of December, early January to early February, and early March to Easter or Spring Break. Keep in mind this can vary according to promotions such as free dining, runDisney race weekends, or other special events in Walt Disney World. I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
