Disney World Crowd Calendar August 2020

I just completed my August 2020 Disney World Crowd Calendar that includes the Extra Magic Hours schedule, Magic Kingdom parade and Fireworks, Fantasmic, Epcot Fireworks and Rivers of Light schedules. Here’s the details:

Star Wars – A Galactic Spectacular Fireworks are not listed for August 2020 YET. It does not mean they won’t offer them, they just don’t appear yet.

You will find the schedules for the Magic Kingdom parade, fireworks, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Epcot Fireworks (which should change to HarmoniUS before August, Fantasmic and Rivers of Light.

Park hours could extend for some parks and some dates for August, but we won’t know what will change until we draw closer to that month. Check back here often to see what things have changed.

When Disney provides them You’ll also find that the Crowd Calendar now clearly displays special events like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Disney After Hours in the Magic Kingdom. There’s no need to guess when those occur during your visit.

My crowd calendar is designed to let you know what the overall crowd level expectation will be for a given day. You can then see if a park is a Best, Worst or Median level park. I would chose the best park as it will experience lower crowds than other days of the week.

If you choose the red Extra Magic Hour park, choose the early one at Magic Kingdom. I don’t see much benefit in the late Extra Magic Hours, unless you plan to tour Adventureland and Frontierland. Most guests avoid that part of the park late at night because it is much darker.

I’ve found Epcot Late Extra Magic Hours to be pretty pleasant, especially if you begin in Future World West and work your way toward the East, but we don’t know when the new Ratatouille ride will open, so things could change there. Test Track is usually the most popular ride, followed by Frozen Ever After.

If you visit the Early Extra Magic Hour at Animal Kingdom, you’ll want to visit Pandora or Kilimanjaro Safaris. If you have a Flight of Passage Fastpass, you can pretty much tour that park with little effort. At Hollywood Studios, you could visit Galaxy’s Edge and hold a Slinky Dog Fastpass.

These are merely initial park hours and extra magic hours and things change A LOT over the next 6 months.  Hope it helps you plan out your days at least!  Here’s the link to my Disney World Crowd Calendars!

  1. Any thoughts on End of August this year with the closure in March? Any sense if it is going to be extra busy as people try to make up their vacations?

  2. We are going August 22-29. Is there a benefit to going to MK on the 25th during the day and not staying for MNSSHP? Will the crowds be smaller during the day?

  3. We will be traveling Aug. 9-15. What is a possible outside vendor that is listed on Saturday? Will that affect the Halloween party being on Thurs.? Thanks

  4. Thank you. I must be doing something wrong then. I’m clicking the link to the crowd calendar, then finding the August post but when the click the august 2020 date it bring me to a August 2019 calendar still.
