What's happening 9/2-9/3 at WDW?


#1

I have been checking the crowd calendar for our trip and we have 1-3 levels with an two outliers of 6 on the 2nd and a 4 on the 3rd. Anything special going on that would raise the levels?

I am SUPER happy about the 1-4 btw!:laugh:


#2

The begining of Labor day weekend?


#3

I wondered that but the actual weekend is low- It goes 6 on TH, 4 on Fri and 3 on Sat…
Weird?


#4

More and more kids are back in school as it gets closer to 1 September. Parents want to get home with time to relax before the first day of school so the weekend crowd level fizzles as you get to Sunday.


#5

Is it FREE FOOD?

Just got back and the parks were PACKED - at the end of the night, the Ferry line went back to the security tables!! I couldn’t believe my eyes (first night of FREE FOOD!) But, that said, the longest wait was 35 minutes - so it was busy, but the ride lines weren’t? :blink:


#6

Where is this “crowd calendar” you speak of? I am ALL stressed out that my trip is going to be packed bc of Food and Wine. 9/29 - 10/4. We went last year a week earlier and it was SO nice!!


#7

I don’t know what the “crowd calendar” is either…I have never heard of such a thing, but it sounds like it would be a very useful tool when planning a trip to see the MOUSE!!


#8

I went to WDW about 3 years ago on that weekend. I have a picture somewhere that is of a totally empty Fronterland, not one person can be seen from Splash Mountain to Liberty Square.

Great trip I did all the major E ticket rides (plus a few others) in all 4 parks in 1 day. Everything was a walk in and I could have been seated at any table service in park when I walked up. It has never been that empty since. But this is the weekend to go for low crowds.

(bonus no Brazilians!)

Here is a link to the crowd calendar. It is pretty accurate:

#9

I have a crowd calendar on the updated version of Undercover Tourist too.


#10

Ok- I am going to post the link but keep it TOP SECRET ok? :ninja:
I have used this for a while and it is pretty accurate…

Disney World Crowd Calendar — The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World

LOL- ok- I guess Tigger got it first and I didn’t read the actual link… So the secret is out and I didn’t do it!

Dixie- we have to catch up with all the MBs that will be there with us to see if we can meet up for a quick chat :slight_smile: I know we will all be busy with our plans but a quick drink or visit might work!


#11

Nice! Looks like I am all 1’s but the first night I am there (5) and on a Saturday (4). I am super excited about this trip…running the Disney Halloween 5K, Food and Wine, MNSSHP and AKL! PLUS, I think I am doing annual passes, considering I have at least 2 trips planned between now and next September!

Is it me, or does life get so much better when you are planning a Disney trip?!?


#12

People … PEOPLE! 09/02 - the Boss Mouse’s Birthday?

#16

If Boss is a Virgo, I’m the Sheik of Araby.:rolleyes:


#17

Can I trade in my birth sign? I don’t wanna be a Virgo anymore… Too much of a bad reputation now! ROFL!


#18

We know you’re as pure as Sleeping Beauty before the apple:mickey:


#19

We use to go this time of year and the crowds are not bad at all.
