The Crowd Calendar has been predicting that the crowds around Memorial Day Weekend will be at a level ’8′ with the exception of the holiday Monday itself listed as a level ’5′. We have been responding to several questions and comments about those predictions, so we figured, why not answer it on the blog?
We recieved a comment from a reader who was in Walt Disney World last year during Memorial Day Weekend. Perhaps this may shed some light on why the Sunday is likely to have higher crowds than the Monday.
I was in WDW last year Friday-Monday over Memorial Day weekend and it was great – crowds didn’t seem bad at all. Out of the entire weekend, we found Sunday to be the MOST crowded, and Monday (morning) at the MK to be nearly empty. This could have been due to the fact that MK had EM nighttime hours on Sunday night though. Have fun!
Mondays are typically a good day for crowds at the Magic Kingdom. Sunday’s Extra Magic Hour can give resort guests their fill.
Let us know your experience with touring during Memorial Day Weekend past and present.
