16 Busiest Days and Weekends in Disney World

Castle at Christmas

14. Thanksgiving

Schools are out =  crowds go up. As this is a four-day weekend for many, families use it as a time to gather together. Christmas decorations in Disney World are already up by this time. It is considered a great time to kick-off the upcoming Christmas Season with extended family, but everyone has the same idea!

15. The Pop Warner Cheerleading Competition

Held at the beginning of December, this event brings in lots of people - particularly younger, overly-excited teenagers! They can be found more at the hotels and the sports complex until the eliminations start happening. Then they are off to the Parks.

16. Christmas

By far, this is the busiest time of year to go if you want to avoid crowds. The week between Christmas and New Year’s will actually push the park to capacity and cause it to close to new guests. If you can get in early, don’t plan on leaving on those days if you want to see the fireworks at night. Christmas morning or New Year’s Eve at Disney are magical and everyone knows it! With children out of school on Winter Break and many families offered extended time off from work, this becomes the go-to time for attending Disney.

The truth is that Disney is always very busy. Each year it seems the crowds grow a little bit more. These are suggestions of the heightened times in the park. Even saying that, if you go with a little extra patience and the desire to have a great time, you will!
