View Full Version : Labour Day Weekend Crowds

08-22-2007, 10:14 AM
I have bought a 2 day hopper pass and am planning to use 1 of the days over the Labour Day weekend and the second day on the following Friday (hoping the crowds will have dissapeared by then)

Which day is the quieter if any , the Sunday or Monday? and what are the crowds like on these days and what am i looking at for average wait times in the parks?

Chris (9 days and counting)

I went Labor Day weekend in 2005 and Monday was much quieter than Sunday. I was actually surprised at how uncrowded it was. Have fun! :thumbsup2

I second that opinion. We went the same time in 05. Thats why we're off to do it agin in 11 days!!! The crowds really shrink with the new school year starting. We had the best time ever during this time frame. The Friday might pick up some, but I would think the logic still applies. The locals would still be in school.

sorry to sound thick here but I'm not from the USA. When are the labor day holidays? Are the kids off for a week, or just the weekend? Thanks

Labour Day Weekend is the first weekend in Sept. The children should all be back at school on the 4th this year (Tues.)

Up here in Canada I believe all the children start school on the 4th, unless it is a private school or college/university.

In the USA the children have different start dates depending on where they live. Some start in August and others in Sept.
