Question , who all has been to WDW in August ? We are going the 9th through the 19th . I know the temperatures will be hot , but what about crowds ? I went last March during spring break and it was pretty crowded and wait times were crazy , will it be worse than that time of year because its summer , about the same or less ??

We have been four times during the last week of July, early Aug and I don't remember it being that crowded, just hot, hot, hot, lol!!  I would bet it isn't as crowded as Spring Break during that time. - mrsincredible  1326.8 #4 5:13PM
I will be there the 10th through the 17th! Where r u saying? We are staying at bay lake tower as for crowds the beginning of your trip will probably be kind of crowded but half way through most people from southern states school starts so they leave and it's less crowded, last time we went in August it was super crowded for most of our trip and then halfway through everyone disappeared. The crowds however are less then spring break, spring break is probably the 2nd craziest time of year the first being Christmas - nodell111  166.4 #54 5:18PM
we will be staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo house , and yeah it was pretty crazy didnt get to ride much cause we spent all of our time waiting in lines the first day however was not so bad we went to Animal Kingdom first and it was a bit chilly so we walked straight on to Kali River Rapids, but me and my cousin was the only one in the boat so we went down the big hill we got soaked and was sooo cold until we dried haha, but it warmed up in the days following and the crowds came out. - kerielizibeth  10.5 #249 5:26PM
we stayed at Bay lake towers when we went last year and it is wonderful although i hated walking to the contemporary for quick service meals - kerielizibeth  10.5 #249 5:27PM
I love akl, we stayed in the Jambo house on our last visit! - nodell111  166.4 #54 7:16PM
We been there the last week of Aug . & it wasn't crowded at all . Usually once the value season starts the crowds are low !!! - skcanfield  586.6 #14 5:32PM
i sure hope the crowds are low, id like to be able to do some things that ive never got to do before due to the lack of time and wanting to do the bigger more popular rides, like the jungle cruise, and the people mover in Magic Kingdom. - kerielizibeth  10.5 #249 5:39PM
I went there during the week of the 14th, and yes crazy hot. The crowds didn't seem to bad to me. It of course was no where near as light as the first week of December. The only ridiculous long wait time I remember was for Toy Story Mania. Some others had longer wait times then I care for; I prefer my times under 20 minutes. However, the lines seemed to move pretty good. Dinosaur and Goofy's Barnstormer are the ones I remember having a long wait in which I actually stayed in line. - Lelundrial  730.6 #281 5:37PM
i think toy story mania always has a crazy wait time , thats why we try to get it out of the way first , and youre like me, i like my wait times under 20 minutes, i am a very impatient person, thats why i like the single rider lines and fast pass . - kerielizibeth  10.5 #249 5:42PM
Been there both times. Hot in August, crowded during spring break. Definitely less crowded in August, but there will still be significant crowds. I can email you crowd levels from touringplans.com if you'd like. - DizneyGirl  981.0 #8 7:00PM
That would be great email is [email protected] - kerielizibeth  10.5 #249 7:36PM
We always go in Aug except this yr. It's crowded but Parks are open late every day usually mk opened til 3 a few times a wk. We get to a park in the AM then take a break in the pool/resort/lunch around 1. Then hit the Parks again around 4 or have an early dinner. The parks r less crowded in the late afternoon/evening. FP for soaring and toy story were always gone before noon. - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #73 7:08PM
I've gone in Aug. since 2003. Crowds are not too crazy but there are crowds definitely less than spring break or Christmas. Humidity is unbelievable but thst is FL for you in Aug. you just have to deal with what Mother Nature throws your way. Bring sunscreen/block, rain ponchos & a change of shoes...wet sneakers take a day or 2 to really dry out. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #20 8:06PM
I would also advise against wearing necklaces. I wore a pure silver necklace last time, and ended up with a rash around my neck. I was embarrassed to go outside. I am sure people thought I had leprosy. - Lelundrial  730.6 #281 8:15PM
Yeah. Some jewelry doesn't do well with excess body heat - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #20 8:17PM
Or sunblock. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #20 8:17PM
I went last August... I'm sorry but I HATED it.. By the time I got ready to go out as soon as I stepped outside It would pour and it would continue to rain all day. it sucks cause it limited our activities! And when it DIDNT rain.. It was unbearably HOT! I remember sitting on the ferry taking me from Hollywood studio to the boardwalk, and just sitting there I felt a pool of sweat coming out of my pours creating a pool around me!!β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€ - Boardwalkgirl  58.9 #100 6:25AM
Oh no . I don't like to sweat . :( any tips on keeping. cool ? - kerielizibeth  10.5 #249 7:04AM
I know how you feel. The humidity makes you feel gross. I kept a hand fan on me. Seemed to help a bit. - Lelundrial  730.6 #281 7:23AM
I know on spring break on some days I could wear my jeans . Sounds like that won't be an option this time around . - kerielizibeth  10.5 #249 7:26AM
I know I wore pants the first day, because I don't wear shorts on planes. I probably was in my cargos, and it wasn't so bad. The rest of the days I wore knee length shorts. - Lelundrial  730.6 #281 10:11AM
I thought only the mornings were humid...ok someone else out there must love FL heat besides me?!?! - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #73 2:59PM
Looks like a few of us will be there at the same time. I will be there august 9 to august 19. Also at Bay Lake Tower. Love it there. Maybe we can meet at the pool? - Pooh147856  384.9 #23 9:44AM
That's great we will be staying at the same place at the same time! - nodell111  166.4 #54 9:57AM
That's great hope to see everyone there !! - kerielizibeth  10.5 #249 10:18AM
I will be there 8th to the 15th it's just very hot!! - april411  4.7 #472 10:14AM
Yay someone else staying around the same time! Where are you staying? - nodell111  166.4 #54 10:36AM
We are staying at disney art animation where u staying at - april411  4.7 #472 2:27PM
