Our Disney crowd calendar uses a 1 to 10 scale: 1 is least crowded, and 10 is most crowded.

The scale represents the average wait time between 10 am and 5 pm at key attractions in each park.

November - Jersey Week / Veterans Day / Thanksgiving

November - Jersey Week / Veterans Day / Thanksgiving

New Jersey has a state wide teacher's conference on the 5th and 6th (Thurs and Fri) and Election day is the 3rd. Some schools in New Jersey will have the entire week of, others just during the conference.
The rumors of high crowds during "Jersey Week" probably keeps away the same number of people that Jersey Week attract. Crowds will be more than manageable. Wear you team's favorite jersey and tell everyone you came for Jersey Week.
Veterans Day is on the 11th (Wednesday). Being mid-week this holiday will not help people have a long weekend and will not attract many guests. 10 days later schools will start their Thanksgiving breaks. The weekend before Thanksgiving the crowds will start to grow until the following Saturday.

Best Times to Visit Disney World

Walt Disney World is busiest Christmas Day through the first few days of January. Next busiest is the spring-break period from mid-March through the week of Easter, then Thanksgiving week. Following those are the first few weeks of June, when summer vacation starts, and the week of Presidents Day.

The least busy time is from Labor Day in September through the beginning of October. Next slowest are the weeks in mid-January after the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend up to Presidents Day in February (except when the Walt Disney World Marathon runs after MLK Day). The weeks after Thanksgiving and before Christmas are less crowded than average, as is mid-April-mid-May, after spring break and before Memorial Day.

Late February, March, and early April are dicey. Crowds ebb and flow according to spring-break schedules and the timing of Presidents Day weekend. Besides being asphalt-melting hot, July brings throngs of South American tourists on their winter holiday.

How To Use the Crowd Calendar

We define theme park crowds by looking at average posted wait time for the park's most important attractions, between the hours of 10:00 am and 5:00 pm. We selected this definition for many reasons:

  • It is data-driven, using data that we can collect
  • It has fixed park hours to make fair comparisons between parks
  • It can be objectively evaluated for accuracy

That last one is important. Two guests who tour Magic Kingdom on the same day may not agree on how the crowd felt. It will depend greatly on their personal perspective: what time of year they usually visit, how experienced they are, whether they used a touring plan, and more. However, everyone should be able to agree on what the average posted wait time was between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.

See our Magic Kingdom Crowd Levels page to get a sense of wait times at popular attractions for different crowd levels.

Other Tips

1. Using a Touring Plan is 5 times more important than which park to visit

The best way to avoid waiting in line is to use a Disney World Touring Plan. You will tour more efficiently with a touring plan at a park at level '8' then you will without a touring plan at a park at level '4'.

2. Lower crowds mean it's less important to choose a specific park to visit

If the crowd calendar level is a '4' or lower, picking which park to visit will matter less. Use the crowd calendar to choose a week with lower crowds, then visit whichever park you wish.

3. Use Extra Magic Hours Wisely

If you're staying at a Disney hotel with Extra Magic Hours, then take advantage of that perk. Morning Extra Magic Hour is the most effective for seeing rides without long waits in line. Just make sure you can arrive before Morning Extra Magic Hour begins.

November - Jersey Week / Veterans Day / Thanksgiving

New Jersey has a state wide teacher's conference on the 5th and 6th (Thurs and Fri) and Election day is the 3rd. Some schools in New Jersey will have the entire week of, others just during the conference.
The rumors of high crowds during "Jersey Week" probably keeps away the same number of people that Jersey Week attract. Crowds will be more than manageable. Wear you team's favorite jersey and tell everyone you came for Jersey Week.
Veterans Day is on the 11th (Wednesday). Being mid-week this holiday will not help people have a long weekend and will not attract many guests. 10 days later schools will start their Thanksgiving breaks. The weekend before Thanksgiving the crowds will start to grow until the following Saturday.

The Crowd Calendar Is Based On Wait Times

Our Unofficial Guide researchers have collected wait times in Walt Disney World for over a decade. Thanks to our mobile app, we get hundreds of wait times daily from our fabulous users. With this dataset our statisticians update the calendar every week.

What The Numbers Mean

The crowd level is based on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being the least crowded and 10 being most crowded. The scale represents the average wait time between 10am and 5pm at the key attractions. Read more on Crowd Levels.

Choosing The Park To Visit Each Day

Before choosing which park to visit each day you should examine some details about your trip. Our Park Recommendations page will take you step-by-step through your planning to make sure you make the right choice. Read More about Park Recommendations.
