    Planning a trip for April/May 2023, looking to find out if you have recommendations on which day to visit which parks. For example, Is it better to visit Magic Kingdom on a Thursday?

    Hi Jay! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    I love hEARing about your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Spring is such a beautiful season to visit and seems to be the time of year that my family most frequently heads to The Most Magical Place on Earth.  Make sure you stop by and say "Hi!" if you bump into me next April as I'm speed-walking to Peter Pan's Flight during Early Theme Park Entry or eating my fill of Mickey Waffles at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom!

    While I truly believe that any day or time to visit Walt Disney World Resort is a good one, there are times of the year when crowds tend to be lower.  I think your plan of visiting in late April or early May is perfect, as most schools have recently taken their spring breaks and children are back in class.  

    Most of the time you'll find that the Theme Parks tend to be the busiest on the weekends because many local visitors arrive on those days.  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are great days to visit any Park, and I've heard that Mondays are great to visit EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park because many people start off their week-long vacations at Magic Kingdom on Mondays.  Honestly, my family always adds on the Park Hopper Option to our Theme Park Tickets so we've visited every Park every day of the week and I've never noticed a big difference in crowds.  I'm positive you're going to enjoy every magical Disney moment no matter which days you spend in which Parks!

    Whatever you choose to do, make sure to check the Theme Park Reservation calendar before you purchase your Theme Park Tickets and make your Theme Park Reservations right after you complete your purchase.  You'll need both a valid Theme Park Ticket as well as a Theme Park Reservation to enter your first Park of the day.

    Feel free to stop by and see us again with any other planning questions!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
