hi, we will be traveling to us and ioa in late august, i havent decided upon a date yet..it will be either 8-20 to 8-23 or 8-27 to 8-30...i know it will be HOT!!!but is there much of an attendance difference, we will be staying at HRH, so i am not really worried about lines, i dont care for crowds, though..
 
Attendance starts to lower from the large summer crowds as the end of August approaches. The crowds are high during the Labor Day weekend and drop off substainally through the month of September.

WE WEN'T LAST YEAR AUGUST 18-25. WE LOVED IT. WE ARE FROM PHILADELPHIA, AND OUR KIDS START SCHOOL AFTER LABOR DAY. NOW A LOT OF SOUTHERNERS AND OTHER PARTS OF GLOBE START SCHOOL IN AUGUST. LET ME TELL YOU WE WENT TO EPCOT, GOT THEIR 30 MIN BEFORE OPENING. PARK WAS OPEN WENT RIGHT IN. WENT TO TEST TRACK HAD A 5 MIN. WAIT. :D WHILE WE WAITED, GOT A FAST PASS. WHEN WE GOT OFF THE RIDE IF WAS TIME FOR OUR FAST PASS. GOT ON AGAIN NO WAIT THIS TIME. :D WENT OVER TO HISTA THERE WAS MAYBE 20 PEOPLE THERE. I NEVER BEEN TO DISNEY WORLD AND HAD TO WAIT FOR PEOPLE TO ARRIVE. THE PARK WAS THAT EMPTY. WENT ON BODY WARS. NO WAIT. WALKED RIGHT THRU THE DOOR TO THE SEAT. IT WAS WONDERFUL. I GUESS WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS GO LATER IN AUGUST THE LATER THE BETTER. THIS YEAR WE ARE ARRIVEING AUG. 22-28. WENT TO IOA. GOT THERE AT 7 AM WENT RIGHT IN STRAIGHT TO SPIDERMAN. 5 MIN WAIT. HULK NEXT 5 MIN WAIT. OVER TO JP. NO WAIT. THE CM'S WERE ACTUALLY WAITING FOR PEOPLE TO SHOW UP I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. ENJOYED THE RIDE SO MUCH, WHEN WE GOT OFF THERE WERE 5 PEOPLE IN LINE WE DECIDED TO DO IT AGAIN. GOT RIGHT BACK ON. :D WENT ON POPEYE AND BLUTO RIDE. NO WAIT. WHEN WE CAME BACK AROUND, WE ASK THE CM CAN WE GO AGAIN SINCE THERE WAS NO LINE, SHE SAID SURE. SO OFF WE WENT. I HAD THE BEST VACATION OF MY LIFE LAST YEAR AND MOSTLY IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE NO WAIT SITUATION. IN BASICALLY ALL FLORIDA PARKS. I THINK LATE AUGUST IS THE BEST TIME TO GO. ITS STILL HOT SO YOU WELCOME THE WATER RIDES. LESS CROWDS. WE HAD ACTUALLY FINISHED THE WHOLE ENTIRE PARK AND HAD LUNCH BY 2PM. WE WENT BACK TO OUR HOTEL HAPPY AND CONTENT. WE RELAXED AND JUST ENJOYED THE POOL AREA. HOPE THIS HELPS. SORRY ITS SO LONG, I JUST GET CARRIED AWAY WHEN I THINK ABOUT LAST YEARS VACATION. :cool:
