The 2014 Disney World Crowd Calendar is Out!

By Dave Shute


Yesterday I published the first draft of my 2014 Disney World Crowd Calendar.

As usual, I’ll revise it as needed in the summer of 2013 when a full set of 2013-2014 school year calendars are out–but, barring any typos or knuckle-headitude, I expect this calendar to hold up pretty well, because the specifics of 2014 aren’t very ambiguous.

  • 2014 has an early Presidents Day and a very late Easter, which means more good March and April weeks than a typical year.
  • It has a late Thanksgiving, giving one more good November week.
  • Christmas and New Years are both mid-week (Thursday) meaning the weeks that include them will be wildly crowded.

Find these forecast 2014 Disney World crowds here.

Thanks for your information! Very helpful and informative.

We’re planning our 2014 trip 3/29 – 4/5. According to your calendar it looks like a somewhat quiet week.

Am I reading that correctly? Please let me know.

Thanks for any help

Hi Joseph, yes, that’s right, with one caveat–I won’t have a final version of the 2014 crowd calendar out until this summer, when the full set of academic year 2013-2014 public school calendars are out…so things may change about a bit with more complete data…

Follow on Facebook!

Thanks for the quick response. Like you said 2014 looks pretty ambiguous so hopefully it won’t change too much but I’ll check back periodically.
