WDW Oct. 24th-28th

Is this a busy time to visit due to some schools having a fall break and Halloween weekend?

I am not wanting to book a trip if its going to be like the July/August crowds.

I have only been once and that was the first week in June. There were crowds but we were told by workers that the crowds were nothing compared to July/August.

We are thinking one day at the Magic Kingdom, one day Epcot, and one day MGM.

While the parks won't be empty at this point, they won't be like July and August either.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being max capacity, the ratings for these days is a "5" according to the best days site.

The schedule isn't out yet, but try to schedule your Magic Kingdom visit on a day when they won't be having the Halloween party that night. If you're staying on property, take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours, as they will be nice to use during the non-peak seasons.

The dates you are takling about, most uk schools are off then, we left 20 October last year and the parks were getting busier.

Also magic Kingdom does close early for the Halloween party on certain nights, you have to buy an extra ticket for this, but it was well worth the money you can get into Magic kingdom from about 4pm till it closes at midnight. Not sure who loved the fancy dress the most us or the kids!
