What is the Best Day of the Week to Visit Each Walt Disney World Park?

Looking to escape the cold and enjoy some Florida sun and fun at Disney? Let's take a look at which days you should visit each park:

The numbers listed on each chart below are the combined average wait times from 10AM-5PM of major attractions in the park from January 1 - February 28, 2023.

Magic Kingdom

Best day: Any Day Not Monday or Tuesday
Worst day: Monday & Tuesday

Monday and Tuesday see the highest crowds for the world's busiest theme park, as families kick off their vacations (and incorrectly assuming they're beating weekend crowds).


Best day: Wednesday
Worst day: Monday

Epcot sees fluctuations throughout the week, with its longest wait times on Monday & Friday. Keep in mind that on weekends many are there to enjoy whatever festival is going on at the moment and aren't riding on full stomachs. Because of this, I've selected Wednesday as the best day to avoid crowds at Epcot.

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Best day: Sunday & Wednesday
Worst day: Monday, Friday, & Saturday

Hollywood Studios sees its lowest crowds on Sunday and Wednesday. All other days of the week see consistently busy crowds.

Disney's Animal Kingdom

Best day: Wednesday
Worst day: Monday, Friday, & Saturday

Animal Kingdom sees a massive dip in crowds on Wednesday. I guess no one wants to go on a safari midweek.
