August 2015 at Disney World from WDWPrepSchool.com

August at Disney World starts off hot and busy and ends hot and much less busy.

If you happen to have a school district that starts school late, traveling to Disney World after mid-August is a great way to avoid peak crowds.

Some tips for traveling in August:

  • Traveling to Disney World during a busier time means you have to be extra diligent about having a good touring plan. As long as you’re zigging while other people zag, you’ll do fine.
  • Weather in August is hot. Consider taking mid-day breaks from the sun and crowds during your trip.
