Not-so-scary Crowds Throughout October

by Fred Hazelton

Busier than September but still manageable, October is a great month for low crowds with bearable weather. As the Halloween Party schedule goes, so go crowds at the Magic Kingdom. Visit on a day hosting an evening party and you’ll find short hours but a near-empty Kingdom. Watch out for foodies cramming Epcot during the Food & Wine Festival on weekends.

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.
