Planning a trip to a theme park for your family is exciting, but also stressful. While you are excited about all the fun and memories you are going to create, there are also the “what if’s.” If you are planning a trip with a loved one who has specials needs, there is no way to “wing it.” In order to ensure the best trip for your family, every detail needs to be planned. These parks get packed, but there are certain times during the week, and the year, that are better to visit to avoid the rush.
In general, we’ve found that if you are able to visit any park mid-week (Tuesday to Thursday), you will be sure to find smaller crowds, lower wait times for attractions, and an overall easier park navigation. Also, all parks warn that summertime draws the largest crowds and highest temperatures, so if possible, avoid visiting during June-August. Always plan to arrive when the parks open to get a head start from the crowds.
At Springible we have done the work for you, researched each location, and will be publishing the best times to visit the following parks:
- Disney World
- Busch Gardens
- Universal Studios
- Six Flags
