16 Busiest Days and Weekends in Disney World

Crowd Entrance Magic Kingdom

There are so many busy times for Disney, but there are some days that are worse than others. If schools are out, Disney World is busy. Disney has a season, but it’s not like the normal seasons. Besides being more crowded, prices tend to go up. Not for the park tickets, but for just about everything else. One plus to attending the parks during the peak times is that Disney usually pulls out all the stops. There are usually extra hours, shows and attractions open.

Let’s start at the beginning of the year and cover the busy times. Not always just a specific day, these seem to happen mostly with holidays, three-day weekends, Run Disney events and school schedules. Note – there are 5 race weekends at Disney World and they bring thousands, think in the range of 25,000 extra people to the area./

1. New Year’s Day is usually busy. Crowds will drop off significantly as kids return to school after the winter break.
