Summer is a popular time to visit Disney World because kids are out of school.

It used to be the busiest time of year, however, Disney has done a great job at distributing crowds more evenly throughout the year. 

So you might be surprised at the lower-than-expected crowd levels at the parks in the summer months. 

Here’s what to expect on a Disney World summer trip and my picks for the best days to go!

Is Disney World busy in June?

Believe it or not, Disney provides an easy tool to see how crowded they expect the theme parks to be on any given day. 

It is their date-based ticket calendar. 

The higher the single-day ticket price, the more crowded they expect it to be that day!

I have highlighted the best days to visit, which are during the week of the last two weeks in June.

July is overall the most crowded month of the summer at Disney World

However, crowds won’t even come close to those during Christmas or Spring Break!

The best days to visit Disney World in July are highlighted above – July 22nd through 31st. 

Again, they are mostly during the week and the last two weeks of the month

August is the least crowded summer month at Disney World. 

In fact, the last two weeks offer some of the lowest crowds of the year!

The best days to visit Disney World in August are during the week of the last two weeks of the month. 

These are some of the cheapest one-day ticket prices of the year, meaning the least crowded days. 

Additionally, Disney World Halloween parties start on August 9th this year, so you’ll also be able to catch this popular event.
