New Year's Eve

Happy New Year!

by Fred Hazelton

Crowds tend to dwindle by the first Monday after New Year’s Day, then return for a small bump in wait times around Martin Luther King Junior Day. Weather is cool, if not cold and park hours are usually short. Marathon Weekend means crowded hotels but reasonable wait times at the parks during the day.

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.
