    What is the time of the year that has the lowest attendance at the theme parks? Trying to avoid the most crowds and flexible with dates. Thank you.

    Thanks for visiting the DIsney Parks Moms Panel with your great question, Linda!  I think you are very wise to consider crowd levels when choosing a date for your Walt Disney World vacation. The independent website features a Historic Attendance Levels Chart that I often refer to when planning our trips. According to the Historic Attendance Levels Chart, the dates for "lowest attendance" include January (not including New Year's Day) until just prior to Presidents' Week in February, the week following Labor Day until the week prior to Thanksgiving, and the week following Thanksgiving until mid-December. Columbus Day Weekend in October is categorized as  "moderate attendance." Although crowd levels are challenging to predict with 100% certainty, I have found the Historic Attendance Levels Chart to be quite accurate during our trips. I hope this information helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical "crowd free" trip, Linda!
    Happy Planning,
