    We are visiting WDW in August for a week for the first time. Our travel times are flexible. Right now, we are debating arriving on a Sunday or Monday? Please advise which day is better or is there another day that makes more sense to arrive?

    Hi Candace - as you may guess, on an average week, the weekends tend to be busier.  I prefer to do my arriving and departing on the weekend, that way I am at the parks during the slower, mid-week days.

    My family typically arrives on a Sunday, and departs on Friday or Saturday.  We usually hang around at the resort on the first day, and then are well rested and ready to go by Monday morning.

    Congrats on planning your first trip - have a great vacation!
