PHOTOS: See What Disney World’s Memorial Day Crowds Look Like

Today is Memorial Day, a national holiday in the U.S., which means quite a few people will be off from work and may have decided to take advantage of the holiday weekend to visit Disney World.

A Look at the Crowds

We’ve already shared a look at some Memorial Day treats available in Disney World, and now we’re bringing you all the details about one big thing you might be wondering about…the CROWDS!

With Disney World announcing that capacity has been quietly increasing and will continue to increase over the coming months you might be wondering just what the Memorial Day crowds looked like in the parks.

Today our reporters made their way around the 4 Disney World theme parks to get a look at what was going on for the holiday. Let’s start our crowds tour in Magic Kingdom. On Main Street, U.S.A. there were some decent crowds, but also pockets of empty space.

In Tomorrowland the situation was the same. There were some lines and crowds in certain areas…


…but plenty of space in others.


Surprisingly, the area in Fantasyland that typically has a large crowding issue (near Peter Pan’s Flight and “it’s a small world”) was not that bad. There was still a decent amount of space when we walked through.

The situation was similar over at EPCOT. While there were areas with larger crowds…

The area near the Mexico pavilion was quite crowded. This is a pavilion that can get very busy though, so this is not a big surprise.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there were again plenty of areas with lots of space!

Not Too Bad Here!

In Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Pandora — The World of Avatar was pretty busy, but again that’s no big surprise.


Other areas in the park had fairly large crowds, but also pockets of empty space.

One of our reporters indicated that the crowds essentially felt like what they would be during a weekend in Disney World. Weekends typically tend to have larger crowds than the weekdays in the parks. There were some places today where we found bigger crowds, and other areas where there was plenty of space. It just depended on where we walked and how the crowds flowed through the space.
