Crowds at Disney Parks

Crowds at Disney World in January

While Disney World is crowded nearly every month, there are only two major parts of January that you need to avoid.

If you have studied our Disney World crowd calendar, you know that historically, January can be busy most weekends due to events. BUT 2021 is going to be a bit different due to Covid.

The first of the year will be crowded until the second week, but after that, you should be pretty good to go.

The only exception is Martin Luther King Jr. weekend since most people take advantage of the holiday.

Disney World Events in January

This year is going to be different than in the past and we may not see any major events happening in the Disney World in January.

We will update this post if they announce anything new.
