Gearing Up for Another Busy Weekend at Walt Disney World

Share This!

While we’re not expecting this weekend to be as busy as the holiday weekend last week, our Crowd Calendar does show an uptick in the expected crowd level. Weekends are busier at Walt Disney World now that more Florida Residents and other regional guests make up a larger portion of the attendance. Before COVID-19 there was not such a dramatic difference on weekends versus weekdays.

Our team is in the parks daily and during our time in the parks leading up to this weekend we could see an increase already taking place. Our tools like our Crowd Calendar, and our customized Touring Plans make it possible for you to save time by optimizing which attractions on your list to visit at what time. Let’s see how things looked in the parks leading up to another busy weekend at Walt Disney World.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Crowds

We are seeing some busy days at Animal Kingdom with actual observed wait times on Thursday being the highest they’ve been on any previous Thursday this month.

We are also seeing some busy days at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with actual observed wait times on Thursday being the highest they’ve been on any previous Thursday this month here as well.

    We are going to Disneyworld in January. Is Disney having less attractions at Disneworld open on weekdays during COVID? Also, curious if staffing is noticeably lower on weekdays during COVID?in other words, is it currently better to go on weekends or weekdays?

    THANKS!!

      Hey Joel, practically all of the attractions that are currently operating are open 7 days a week. You can make a Touring Plan and see what attractions are open with our Lines app. Weekends tend to be much busier than weekdays since more Florida Residents and other drive-in guests are coming compared to fly-in guests. We have not noticed any major staffing differences on weekends. Hope you have a great trip!
