    Best day of the week?



    I've been reading many different Disney guide books, and a few have offered days of the week that are most busy at certain parks. I was wondering if anybody has any advice about what days are BEST at certain parks, and if there is a day that is WORST. Also, do the extra magic hours making that park more busy that day?

    Thanks!

    Good question!!

    Generally, we try and do Epcot at weekends as it means there are no school trips there. Having said that, we've often popped in on week days too and have rarely seen a school trip!

    We also try and avoid MK at weekends as it gets much busier with people on weekend breaks and all the locals popping in.

    We hit the malls on a Saturday and then do things like crazy golf on a Sunday, maybe popping in to parks later in the day.

    Weekends are still great in the parks - there's always Fast Pass!

    Re: Best day of the week?

    The best day of the week for any park would be a Sunday. That is a big travel day so many people don't go to the parks. As people arrive on Sundays, their first day, they will choose to go to Magic Kingdom. Therefore, Mondays are a bad day for going to Magic Kingdom. As for late nights, people usually go to a different park and hop over to the park with the late night. Usually, late nights aren't crowded. Large families usually don't stay past the first hour. Other than that, the rest of the days are very unpredictable unless there is a special event.

    Hope this helped!

    I think it is really hard to tell MK is always I feel the busiest park on any given day but the EMH are really a blessing for them. I think it just depends on the time of year you are visiting as to weather the parks are horribly, moderatly or average on the crowds.

    I recommend purchasing The unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World. They have all kinds of helpful info in there including the answer to your exact question. Very helpful and informative! Good Luck!

    There are a lot of different factors to consider that can affect crowd levels, such as Extra Magic Hours and special events.

    I recommend touringplans.com. They have a calendar that shows crowd predictions for every day of the year. You'd have to subscribe to get the full calendar, but it's worth it, I think.

    Personally, I avoid Fridays and Saturdays.

    I Epcot on weekends due to the same reason someone else stated...there is no school kids.

    I've been to MK everyday of the week multiple times and I personally feel Mondays and Wednesday are the least crowded for whatever reason. Every now and then you'll have a huge influx of people on Sunday that may make Monday a bit busy and Sunday dead.

    We avoid MK and Epcot on Saturdays unless there are EMHs. We also have some GREAT photos from MK on a Wednesday where our kids are the only ones on Main Street. We have one photo at about 2:00 on a Wednesday where our kids are dancing down Main Street with nothing in the photo except the Castle and some Photopass photographers.

    Exactly. Tuesday through Thursday are the best days to visit. Unless you have magic hours. I usually book Sunday through Tuesday. Sunday I arrive and enjoy the resort and downtown Disney and any emh that are available. Then on Monday I start with the parks. I found out emh have less wait since the park is empty from the beginning and only resort guests are allowed in.
