Are you planning a vacation to Walt Disney World? Don’t like to deal with big crowds? I don’t! I have created a Disney Crowd Calendar that forecasts the crowds levels at Disney World for 2018. This is just a guide based on historical crowds at Walt Disney World.
Disney Crowd Calendar
This Disney crowd calendar is a helpful tool to assist you when planning your trip to Disney World around the least busiest times of the year. Going to Disney when the crowds are low helps maximize your time enjoying the parks instead of standing in long lines when the park is very crowded.
What is “heaviest crowds” like at Disney?
When the crowds are at the heaviest, it makes it difficult to walk around the parks. The parking lots, Disney transportations, stores, restaurants, counter service and attractions are packed. I have visited the parks when the crowds have been at the heaviest crowd. It feels like your personal space is being invaded. In the hot weather, I have had people so close to me that they rub their sweaty arm onto mine. So gross.
Some people enjoy going to Disney for the holidays when the crowd levels are at the heaviest. I don’t blame them. Disney World is absolutely beautiful during the holidays. This is where knowing what to do and what parks to visit when it is super crowded where planning for Disney is critical.
Planning For Disney
If you are going to Disney during the super busy time, you might not get the accommodations that you want for the price that you want it. After you have selected your date, it is extremely important that you select and reserve your accommodations.
It sounds a bit overwhelming but it really is not. To help and guide you on planning a great Disney World vacation, just follow my 10 easy Disney planning steps.
