    Thinking of booking a trip to WDW in September and was wondering how the crowds are Labor Day weekend and the rest of the week? Thanks for your help!

    Hey Tim!  The rule of thumb is that if it's a holiday, you can count on WDW being crowded.  However, with that said, I have been during peak times, and I still have always found the crowds manageable.  To avoid complete madness, I recommend arriving at the park early to enjoy the most popular attractions before they become too crowded.  Also take advantage of the Fast Passes.  This will also help to reduce lines.  I have been on Labor Day weekend and it truly was not that bad.  The great thing about the week after is most of the children will have started school, so that too may help reduce crowds.  Hope this information helps, and please don't hesitate to come back and visit us at the Mom's Panel with any other questions you might have while planning.
