Crowds in August...
How crowded is it in August? I know as far as visitors from FL it won't be bad because our school starts so early, but I'm wondering if it's still as busy as the summertime? I would guess late August-November would be okay, but I'm not exactly sure.
you are correct...crowds begin to die down starting in mid aug or so. Plus, you will find good discounts on Disney hotels starting Aug. 27 or so, sometimes as little as $59 a night at the value resorts! However, labor day wkend (Sept2-4) tends to get a little crowded. Other than that, its smooth sailing. Hope this helps and have a fun trip!
Funny thing, I went on my birthday August 28th and it was DEAD! You heard correctly, dead. everything was about 5 minutes, Space 10 maybe, but it was not crowded at all.
Well I'll be hoho, It's the Blue Fairy

I'm hoping for no crowds since we'll be up for my bday starting August 30th. I haven't been to Disney in August for about 5 years but back then the school year started later. Here's hoping for the best!
The main problem with going end of August is if your vacation runs over into Labor Day weekend which is a very crowded time, last chance in summer. August is when crowds are thinning out and September is thin but Labor Day is packed and I was there on Labor Day but it was 2 weeks long vacation there and I was a single traveler.
I'm going the same time you are! Happy birthday in advance!

Wow, how cool, we'll be there at the same time. We're going August 31st-Sept 6th.

This will be our first time at the All Stars Movie resort, so I'm excited to see something new!
Yay! We should celebrate our bdays with some cake and ice cream! I'm so excited about this trip. I have a countdown calendar at work - right in front of my face just so I don't forget I have something to look forward to! I'm just not that excited about getting older...
