When to visit Disney

Christmas at Walt Disney World is one of the busiest times of year!Your schedule may dictate the time of year you're able to visit Walt Disney World in Orlando. School schedules, work schedules and family events, all play a part in determining when you can visit Magic Kingdom and the other theme parks at Walt Disney World. If you have flexibility in your schedule, here's a look at the crowds you can expect at various times throughout the year.



Really busy times at Disney

  • Christmas through New Year's Day
  • Easter week & surrounding 'Spring break' weeks
  • Fourth of July week

Busy season at Walt Disney World

  • Spring and summer (other than the weeks mentioned above)
  • Thanksgiving week

Moderate to light crowds at Walt Disney World

  • Late February
  • Early May
  • Mid to late September
  • October through early December (except Thanksgiving week)

Coincidentally, the busy seasons are also the time where accommodations & transportations are the most expensive. If you go during one of the less-crowded times you're sure to save some money- and get more from your park visits due to shorter lines. Keep in mind that some of the attractions may be closed for repairs during winter months & off-seasons, and also some of the park hours may be shortened.
