    i am trying to plan an intinery. are the parks genrally more busy during the weekend than in the week troughout sept/0ct also does mnsshp have a admition limit at this event and is that genrally crowded. thanks 13 more weeks!!

    Hi there, Nicola!

    Early Fall is a great time to visit Walt Disney World. After Labor Day, crowds drop quite a bit, and you'll find that wait times are definitely reduced from the summer.

    As a rule, the Parks are generally busier on weekends than weekdays; the exceptions to this are summer vacation season, Thanksgiving, and Christmas week. Your thinking is correct. If you can make your trip overlap weekdays, you'll be in great shape.

    Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has a capacity, but it always seems like it's never as crowded as a regular day. Part of why these special events are popular is because in addition to their special features - like Happy HalloWishes fireworks and Mickey's Boo-To-You Parade - the crowd levels are not very high. Crowd levels do increase the closer to Halloween you attend, with the highest attendance being on October 31.

    Make sure to buy your tickets in advance. That's one you won't want to miss!

    See you later, celebrator,
