We are planning a last minute trip with 3 children. Ideally we would go in September to take advantage of lower crowds, but SWGE opening has me concerned. However, looking at resort and dining availability as well as flight prices, September actually has more availability and better prices than the end of August (19th-25th) and I’m confused. Is there any other explanation or will crowd levels truly probably be much lower in September than late August even with SWGE opening? I wonder if a lot of people moved their trips to late August to avoid SWGE.
We will be staying off-site.
If you had to bet on when the crowds would be lowest in that time frame (last two weeks of August through September) which week would you choose?
I keep reading that crowd levels don’t matter as long as you have a good TP, but I have yet to figure out how to make a good one. Also, how crowded the parks feel matters to us more than wait times.
Thanks for any advice!
