August 2017 Disney World Crowd Calendar and Park Hours created

Disney World Crowd Calendar August 2017

I’ve just completed creating the August 2017 Disney World Crowd Calendar.  It contains the initial release park hours for the month, the Extra Magic Hours for each park as well as Wishes, Illuminations and Fantasmic! schedules.

The park hours are merely initial release hours and should increase for many of the parks over the next 6 months, but it gives you an idea of my recommendation of the best and worst parks to visit each day, which will allow you to book your dining reservations based on your park choices.

You’ll also find that Hollywood Studios doesn’t list any fireworks times.  That’s very normal for Disney World operating procedure right now as well.  They typically get added into the schedule 2 weeks to 2 months before.

Here’s my August 2017 Disney World Crowd Calendar.


Never miss a beat – just enter your email address below and you'll get an email every time I publish a new post! You can also adjust the settings for a daily overview.


  1. It also states “Very Light Crowds” for the day, so I was confused. So does that just mean MK will be the busiest park that day?

  2. I am new to your site and really enjoying everything I see. I was wondering what is meant by best park, Median park and worst park on your calendar. We are head to MK 9/13/17 and says worst park.

    • That means it’s the park you should avoid due to the most people and highest wait time for that park that week. Green means lightest and yellow is in between.

  3. Just wondering if it is worth visiting Magic Kingdom 8/22/17 and 8/27/17. I’m staying on property but there is the paid extra Magic morning event from 7:45-9:00. Will the park be too crowded by the time the general public is let in?

  4. Thank you for this! Now I’m anxiously awaiting the Sept calendar, since my trip is Aug 27-Sept 3. That’s what I get for bridging two months!

  5. Ok Thank You I thought you were updating the current 2017 months you have already posted previously. I Love all your updates in Walt Disney World. We’lol be there the first week of May.
    Thank You Again :)
