"Imagine there's no people,

on the streets of Disney World.

No lines at Soarin',

or Peter Pan too.

Imagine all the people,
Smiling all the day...


You may say I'm a dreamer,

But I'm not the only one...
I hope some day you'll join us,

and the world will live as one."

OK, so I'm no John Lennon, but you get my drift. (Dad does sing good.)


It might be a dream to think about no crowds at WDW. It's not reality. Yes, WDW crowds are stressful, so, lets break this down and figure out how to take some of the stress out of the crowds at WDW.

Last year over 55 million people visited one of the Walt Disney World parks. That's a bunch. The theme parks at Disney World are all in the top 5 most visited theme parks in the world (Disneyland sneaks in usually at number 4.)


For the most part, Disney World Crowds follow the American school calendars. When school is out, crowds are bigger. Pretty simple.

So, Dad, just how are we supposed to avoid crowds at Walt Disney World?
