    we are traveling to WDW at the end of july from the 31 to the 7. are the parks usually really crowded or is it a slower time. We went in may and it was crazy busy. We have a 4 and a 2 yr. old. Just trying to get an idea of what to expect thanks

    Hi Joseph,

    Thanks so much for writing.  Disney World is, indeed bustling with summer vacationers during the summer months.  In my experience, July is more crowded than August, but you should still expect some crowds. Luckily, the parks tend to stay open later during the summer months to accommodate guests and their desire to see and do everything!  I recommend heading to the parks as early as possible in the mornings, as crowds tend to thicken considerably as the afternoon progresses.  I'd also suggest making good use of extra morning magic hours whenever you can, as you can generally ride many attractions early in the day, and then head back to your resort to enjoy the pool or lunch as the crowds get heavier. 

    Have a wonderful trip!
