September 2020 Walt Disney World Park Hours and Crowd Calendar available!

Disney World Crowd Calendar September 2020

I just completed my September 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 September 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 HarmonioUS before September), Fantasmic and Rivers of Light.

Park hours could extend for some parks and some dates for September, 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. Kenny, I have two choices for my date to attend MNSSHP, either Friday Sep 4th or Monday (Labor Day) Sep 7th. I’m inquiring for your professional opinion as to which date will be less crowded or better in any way.
    Side note, we arrive Fri Sep 4th at 10am to Orlando and would probably go early to MK (maybe 2p?)… First time attending the party, first time to Dis (that he remembers) for my then 4yo, plus my 12+14yo’s in tow.

    Thanks! Love ya!
