This same list works for all the parks.
I am a big fan of using TouringPlans.com to make my park day selections. You can see projected crowds in the parks for every day. I’ll make my choices for which park to visit on which day based on their predictions.
The Extra Magic Hours Thing
A lot of people will tell you to avoid Extra Magic Hours Day, or to go the day after Extra Magic Hours. Both of those suggestions have merit.
Extra Magic Hours, especially morning Extra Magic Hours will draw bigger crowds to the parks. How much bigger. It varies. Sometimes it makes a moderate difference sometimes it doesn’t make much difference at all.
If you are staying in a Disney hotel and have the Park Hopper option, the morning Extra Magic Hour park is usually the best choice. Go to the Extra Magic Hour park, enjoy until the crowds start picking up around noon and hop over to another park.
Going to a park the day after morning Extra Magic Hours as good a strategy as any for picking a day to visit a park. Some times there is a dip on the day after morning EMH. Some times there isn’t.
I wish I could give you a Simple list of the best days to visit Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. There just isn’t one.
“Anytime you can” is an old cliche, but a cliche, none the less, in that it’s true. Anytime you can is pretty much the best time to visit any of the parks.
I guess if you had to pin me down, I’d say 42 is the answer. Oops, I mean Tuesday. But you probably can’t go to all the parks on Tuesday, so I’d use the list above and prioritize the parks using that list.
Don’t forget to check TouringPlans.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Stephanie, you really can’t go wrong on choosing which day to visit any of the Disney Parks. Yes, crowds sometimes (and for no apparent reason) show up at a particular park which can make things harder, but if you have a good plan, if you get to the park early, if you use FastPass+ you can conquer just about any crowd level.
I hope that helps.
