    when are the peak seasons?

    Hi Ashley! It is hard to even know when a peak season or a slow season is at Walt Disney World anymore. We used to be able to give guests hints as to when the parks would not be as crowded but some of those slow times have now become so popular I try not to advise. Instead I suggest guests just find the best time for them to come for a vacation and then plan well. If you do that you can handle all crowds no matter what and still have a magical vacation.

    If you would like to know when Disney thinks will be peak times I always go to the Ticket Page. Just select a number of days for a ticket and proceed to the next page where you will see a calendar. The dark blue dates will be considered peak dates for tickets and that is when prices for them will be the highest. The light blue dates are considered regular dates and the others the off dates. These colored dates are what Disney figures to be low, medium, and higher crowd times.
