Lowest Average Crowds Of The Year

by Fred Hazelton

Labor Day is the least busy holiday on the calendar. Not surprising given that September is the least crowded month of the year. If you can handle the warm weather, enjoy the low crowds. Magic Kingdom crowds are lowest on days with an evening Halloween Party is scheduled.

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.
