Tips for Disney World in August
Is Disney World Busy in August?
As you can see from the Disney World crowd calendar below, the month of August is generally pretty manageable, as far as crowds go.
While this is true for most of the month, with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 29th, you can definitely plan on increased crowds that week.
How to Beat the Disney World Crowds
Disney knows that there will be crowds at Disney World and has come up with ways to help you spend less time waiting in line.
The FastPass+ System is available to all park guests and allows you to “skip to the front of the line” at many attractions with a little pre-planning.
Guests staying at one of the many Disney World resort hotels are able to make FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance of their vacation.
You can make FastPass+ reservations online or through the My Disney Experience app.
What are the Best Character Meals at Disney World?
Disney allows anyone, whether staying on property or not, to make dining reservations 180 days before travel.
These reservations are called Advance Dining Reservations or ADR’s.
