9 Things No One Tells You About a Disney Vacation - #8

Animal Kingdom Crowd

8. It’s almost always crowded

Yes, there are times of the year when the crowds are lower and the lines are shorter. But there is NEVER going to be a time when you’re just going to wander around a “practically empty” Walt Disney World theme park. Disney runs special events throughout the year, ensuring there is always going to be crowds of some level. With that said, I always recommend first-time visitors take their vacations during one of the “relatively” low crowd times, like early September or the or mid-January, if possible. Visiting during these times can make park touring a bit easier.
