The summer season is usually a bustling time at Disney World, one of the world’s most popular and iconic theme parks.

Disney World is known as “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” Walt Disney World Resort is a popular tourist location seeing thousands of Guests daily. Disney is known to see larger crowds during certain times of the year, and the summer has traditionally been one of the biggest times for the theme park destination.

Disney World is comprised of four main theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each Disney Park includes something for Guests of all ages to experience. Disney World is renowned for its exhilarating rides and breathtaking attractions. From classics like Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean to newer additions like Avatar Flight of Passage and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, TRON Lightcycle / Run, and Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind, there’s no shortage of excitement. The Parks also feature immersive 3D and 4D experiences, interactive shows, and stunning fireworks displays that transport Disney Guests into the heart of Disney’s storytelling.

During peak seasons, Disney World often extends its Park Hours to accommodate the increased number of Guests. This means more time to enjoy the attractions, shows, parades, and entertainment offerings that make Disney World so extraordinary. Additionally, the Parks may introduce special events and limited-time experiences during busier times, providing even more magical moments to cherish.

This season is typically busier for Disney World. However, it seems that Disney has been left a ghost town. Disney fans have been talking about how low wait times and no crowds have been seen at Disney. The summer months, Spring Break and Holidays tend to bring in crowds.

Ben( @pieps86) on Twitter tweeted a photo from a Saturday night at Disney World in Magic Kingdom. This photo shows an empty Park. Magic Kingdom is normally the most popular Park for Guests to explore due to its popularity, iconic attractions, and character meet and greets.

Interestingly enough, a recent report indicated that crowds had reached a record low compared to the last several summers at Disney World.

What are your thoughts on these low crowds during the “peak” season at Walt Disney World Resort? Will you visit Disney during the summer or is the heat “too much” for you?
