Here’s what we’re looking at for August 2013:
Most of August is similar to July, with heavy crowds, hot temperatures, long operating hours at the theme parks, and plenty of nighttime entertainment. Crowds begin to drop off near the end of the month as more and more schools start back up. Crowds in September are much lower across the board, even after the Labor Day holiday is taken into account. If you’re flexible, you’ll want to visit in September, which sees some of the lowest crowds of the year. Like July, August is doable, but most people are going to want to tour in the morning and evening when crowds are lighter and the weather isn’t as restrictive. The daily analysis for August will follow in the next few days. There may be some slight changes to the recommendations and crowd levels at that time, but I’m not expecting things to change much. August is one of the more straightforward months.
