2011 August Disney World crowds?

Hi Dad! I first want to say that I am so sad that this is the first time I have found your web page. I love it! I would have been useful to me for planning our last trip!

We need to know about the 2011 August Disney World crowds.

We are hoping to take advantage of the kids stay/play free offer for Disney Visa cardholders. The only problem is that my husband and I are both teachers, so since we are off all summer, we have a hard time justifying taking time off work to go on a vacation (but we REALLY don't want to go when it is super crowded)! We are looking at the week of Aug. 14th through about the 17 or 18th. What do you think about this week? Would we be okay or would it be a big mistake? Thanks so, so much for your help!

Dad's just for you Answer

Angie,

Sorry you were sad, but I'm glad you're happy now. Dad has that effect on many people.

Crowds in August can be a little tricky. Historically, the first week is really busy and crowds get smaller as the month progresses. By the middle of the month crowds are very manageable.

Disney's specials over the last couple of years have bumped up crowd levels during August some to where crowds are heavier, but not out of control.

So about you question about 2011 August Disney World crowds ...

What do you thing about this week (of the 17th and 18th)? I think that will be a right fine (sorry, the southerner in me just jumped out for a minute) week to visit Walt Disney World.

Would we be okay or would it be a big mistake? Mistake? Mistake? It's never a mistake to spend quality time together as a family. And, in Dad's opinion, Disney World is a great place to create great family memories even when the temperatures hotter than Mercury and the crowds are bigger than ... than ... well, when the crowds are big. (Brain freeze.)

Dad's Bottom Line

Angie, just for you (and about a bazillion of your closest friends) Dad made sure that the 2011 August Disney World crowd calendar was up to date and ready for public consumption (whatever that means). It should help ease your mind.

Thanks Dad! I really appreciate your help. It has made up our mind and we are going down a day later in order to avoid a little more of the crowds.

Thanks again!
