    Hi Stacy! Is there anyway to see a breakdown of weeks and crowd numbers? We were wondering what the project crowds will be like in October vs. September. Thanks!

    Hi Claire! The September/October timeframe is the absolute best time of year to go to Walt Disney World (in my opinion.) The crowds are low, the weather is beautiful and the deals at the resorts are unbelievable! We have visited Disney every year in September for the past five years. My favorite resource for viewing projected crowds is touringplans dot com. This website is created by the same team that writes The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World. For a small fee you can research the projected crowds, touring plans, park reommendations and itinerary's. The team uses advanced analytic tools to make their predictions, which are usually spot-on. Even better, with your registrationf fee, you also get access to the Touring Plans smartphone app, which provides you will real-time wait times, attraction closings, park hours and more. The crowds in September/October usually hover around a 3 or 4 on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the least crowded and 10 being the most crowded. The parks are usually more crowded on the weekends and holiday weekends (Labor Day and Columbus Day.) I hope you have a magical vacation! Please let me know if I can help you with anything else at all! Magically, Stacy
