It's all so objective, isn't it?! I was there from Oct 10-24 this year and spent the 11th in MK and found it just fine! We did go early and leave by 4 ish which may explain it but we went on lots of rides, had a good look around and at no point felt it was insanely overcrowded.

In fact, I was expecting huge crowds the whole holiday and literally the only time I felt overwhelmed was leaving the park after the fireworks on the 21st (non party Saturday). I had a dessert party booked so it was really relaxed and the day hadn't been too busy, lots of FP/ walk ons available so when we left I was very WOAH! at the crowds to get out.

I'm hoping to go back in 2019 and will opt for the same time of year again.

It may also be that this was my first visit so no previous experiences of parks being quiet to compare to. And planning to within an inch of my life, this forum helped with FP planning etc. Rode everything and never waited more than 25 mins for anything (and that was a night time photopass at rapunzels castle!)

I think you mean 'subjective' not 'objective'?

Everyone has a different opinion, and experience, of what's busy and what's not. I've seen DIBBers commenting on the crowds in a park on the same day and one of them thought it was rammed whilst another thought it was fairly quiet. So, yes, it is very subjective.

We were at MK on October 11th and found it crazy. Took 40mins or so just to get the boat across to even get into the park. Cast members were telling you which side of the path to walk on as you couldn't move for people.
I know there was a combination of things Columbus Day, Irma etc which added to this but not sure if I would go in October again. Found September to be much quieter.

Case in point - see the above.

One person's "crazy" is another person's "just fine".
